LAS VEGAS (AP) — B.B. King's eldest daughter says she'll host a free musical tribute event at a Las Vegas Strip venue after a public viewing of her father's body at a funeral chapel.

Shirley King says when people are done being sad about her dad's death, she wants them to come out Friday night and let the good times roll.

B.B. King died May 14 at his home in Las Vegas at age 89.

A public viewing is scheduled from 3 to 7 p.m. Friday at Palm Mortuary west of downtown Las Vegas.

Shirley King lives in Chicago and performs as the Daughter of the Blues.

She booked the Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas to open to the public at 8 p.m. Friday for what she says will be live music and remembrances.
