According to ABC News, Chuck Berry’s funeral is to be held on April 9 in his hometown of St. Louis. A public viewing will be held prior to the funeral from 8 AM to 12 PM local time at the Pageant concert venue, meaning fans will have the opportunity to say their final goodbyes to the rock icon in-person. The funeral, however, will be a private service held for friends and family.

Berry passed away on March 18 at the age of 90. His legacy continues with the “Johnny B. Goode” singer’s posthumous album, Chuck, which will be released June 16.
