  • Moving on up: B.B. King opens DPAC in Durham, Sunday, Nov. 30, 2008

On a Sunday night late in 2008, B.B. King opened the Bull City's new Durham Performing Arts Center, becoming the venue's first headliner. (You can read the review here.) King went on to play DPAC two more times—June 3, 2011, and April 21, 2013. King died Thursday night, four months shy of his 89th birthday.
