(KTVI) – Living blues legend BB King has apologized for the performance that his rep says “did not match Mr. King’s usual standard of excellence.”

Many people were confused by the performance at the Peabody Opera House and felt the musician was off his game, to say the least. Even reviews of the performance were not flattering. Reports on social media said fans heckled the musician while was on stage, and others walked out.

The representative says King, 88, did not take his diabetes medication that day and had traveled by bus 1,600 miles from Las Vegas.
