News: B.B. King headed to Red Rocks with Tedeschi Trucks Band

After a super-profitable, if critically underwhelming, summer last year, Red Rocks is already boasting an epic schedule for summer 2012. And it’s barely March.

And now this news: Blues genius B.B. King and next-gen rockers Tedeschi Trucks Band will play at the foothills amphitheater together this summer, making for a legendary summertime blues bill on the Rocks.

King and the TTB (fronted by the husband-wife team of Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi) will play Red Rocks on Aug. 30, promoter AEG Live reported this afternoon.

Tickets, $39.75-$85, will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday via Ticketmaster.
