BB King Coming to Beijing in December 11, 2010? (updated)

so, according to the grapevine, myspace and a few insiders in Beijing, the one and only BB King is due to grace the capital on December 11th and play the worker’s Gymnasium along with Karen Mok.

I don’t think it’s a stretch to have the King himself play Beijing but having Karen Mok on the same bill seems a bit bizarre to me! Anyways, at least, as far as today goes, there are still no official news about it on the Chinese websites nor are there links to potential tickets over at ( but i hear they still got plenty of Michael Learns to Rock” seats available)

With the way the myspace thingy is worded, it almost seems like B.B King is actually opening for Karen Mok…

More on this as it becomes available

    Karen Mok? that makes no sense.
    But if this is true, it’s a show not to be missed.
    BB King is the real deal! His heart and soul is in every note he plays, and at age 85, he’s still kicking everyone’s ass! True Legend!

      indeed.. but it’s china and weirder things have happen in terms of artists sharing the bill. I’m keeping fingers crossed that this one will take place

    The idea of BB King playing isn’t the stuff of utter fantasy… he opened the Hard Rock here in ’94.

    Not with Karen Mok, mind you… but still…

    I checked with the Gongti bunch and they say it is NOT at their venue, it’s at Capitol Arena (Shouti). That room is too big for the blues….NUTS!
