    Blues guitarist B.B. King was performing at the House of Blues in Chicago, Illinois on Friday, October 3, when he fell ill. Reports suggest he fell off the stage, as well. Consequently, King, 89, canceled the eight remaining tour dates so he can get better.

    A statement was posted on his website, which read: "Mr. King fell ill last night, Oct 3, 2014, during his performance at the House of Blues in Chicago. He was immediately evaluated by a doctor and diagnosed with dehydration and suffering from exhaustion whereby causing the eight remaining shows of his current tour to be cancelled."

    Get better, Mr. King. Your health is the top priority.

    Do you have a fave blues musician?
