LAS VEGAS (AP) — Fans can pay their respects to B.B. King in Las Vegas before he is laid to rest in Mississippi. King's website says a public viewing will take place in Las Vegas on Friday. The mortuary's manager says King will be in an open casket and there will be no memorial service. A private funeral is set for Saturday in downtown Las Vegas. King's business manager, LaVerne Toney, says she's still arranging the burial next week in King's hometown of Indianola, Mississippi.
