Just a couple months after finishing up a late summer itinerary, guitar icon B.B. King will welcome the New Year with a North American theater tour.

The 88-year-old blues musician will tackle a New Year's Eve (12/31) performance in Clearwater, FL, followed by a second night (1/2) at the same venue. The 31-city outing crisscrosses the nation and extends through a May 31 concert in Joliet, IL.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's most recent studio album, "One Kind Favor," surfaced in 2008. In 2009, the T Bone Burnett-produced album earned the blues legend a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album. In 2012, King unveiled a new live album, "Live at the Royal Albert Hall 2011."
