One of the great blues musicians of all time is coming to the Twin Cities this fall.

B.B. King will perform at the showroom of Mystic Lake Casino on Oct. 4, the casino in Prior Lake announced Tuesday.

Tickets to see the 87-year-old King and his guitar — he affectionately names them “Lucille” — are priced at $59 and $69 and go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. Contact the Mystic Box Office at 952-445-9000 or visit for more details.

Since his first No. 1 hit in 1952, “Three O’Clock Blues,” King has gone on to win 15 Grammys and been presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom among his many honors.

His best-known recording, “The Thrill is Gone,” earned him a Grammy in 1970 and a Grammy Hall of Fame award in 1998.
