- Story Text: World famous Blues musician B.B. King on Wednesday (December 14) gave a charity concert in Moscow to a packed house of enthusiastic Russian fans.
On his arrival he was surrounded by autograph hunters and souvenir sellers, who persuaded him to buy Russian fur hats for relatives at home.
The 69-year-old guitarist, who last visited Russia on a month-long tour in 1979, played a lively two-hour set in the evening, clowning for the crowd as he played his guitar, Lucille.
The proceeds of Wednesday's concert were donated to the Moscow city government for the purchase of hospital equipment.
