Currently on his Christmas Celebration Of Hope tour, which has the artist out until the end of December, King has added 27 dates which will keep him busy until the middle of February.

Corey Harris supports shows February 13-15.

King’s first ever Christmas album saw the light of day earlier in November. A Christmas Celebration Of Hope fulfills the entertainer’s life long dream of producing a Christmas record.

King and MCA Records will be donating all profits from its sales to City Of Hope, a biomedical research and treatment center that brings lifesaving hope to those suffering from cancer, HIV/AIDS, diabetes and other diseases.

Now into his 70s, King out-lasts most twenty-somethings when it comes to touring. After spending this summer on the European jazz festival circuit, King forged full-steam ahead with his 10th annual North American B.B. King Blues Festival, which was re-dubbed this year as Lloyd’s Blues Music Festival, thanks to the barbeque company’s corporate sponsorship.
