A public viewing and funeral service will be held for the late, great Chuck Berry in St. Louis, Missouri.

SPIN Magazine reports that the viewing will take place from 8AM to 12PM at the Pageant, a well-known concert venue down the street from the club Blueberry Hill. Berry held a nearly two-decade long residency at Blueberry Hill which ended in 2014.

The public viewing will be followed by a private funeral service for Berry’s family and friends.

Berry, regarded by many as the father of the Rock N’ Roll genre of music, passed away on March 18th at the age of 90 years old. His final album titled Chuck, which he was working on prior to his passing, will be released on June 16th. It’s his first studio album since 1979’s Rock It.
