Erstwhile Poison and Mr. BIG guitarist Richie Kotzen will be performing at the B.B. King Blues Club in NYC on Tuesday, July 28. An opportunity to witness Kotzen’s live show in the States is rare, as he does most of his touring overseas, where he enjoys a success that has escaped him in his home country. Known for his virtuosic technical abilities, a mastery of an array of genres, and Gundam soundtrack covers, Kotzen has proven to be a prolific solo artist, releasing well over a dozen albums since his eponymous debut in 1989. Doors are at 6 p.m. and tickets are $15. For more details, visit richiekotzen.com or bbkingblues.com.
