City Sings the Blues

This stretch of road, which extends for almost two miles between the Mississippi River and East Street, played an important part in the evolution of music and culture throughout the United States and the whole world. Tourists and residents alike come to this part of town to remember the city's vibrant cultural roots and experience them for themselves.

There are various walking tours available of Beale Street and the famous residences, theaters, and recording studios that are located there. The street is lined with several other venues that commemorate famous musicians and songwriters from the city's past. Look for the tall neon sign to find BB King's Blues Club, just to give you an example.
