Roll Over Beethoven: The Life and Music of Chuck Berry will take place this fall in Cleveland
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and Case Western Reserve University will honor rock and roll pioneer Chuck Berry during the 17th annual American Music Masters® series this October. Roll Over Beethoven: The Life and Music of Chuck Berry, a weeklong celebration, will tell the story of one of the first musicians to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986. Berry has had a lifetime of brilliant musicianship and has inspired nearly every rock artist to date.
“I’m happy to be honored by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum,” said Chuck Berry. “I’m looking forward to reelin’ and rockin’ in Cleveland.” Berry will attend the tribute concert to accept the award and will perform.
“Chuck Berry created the language of rock and roll,” said Terry Stewart, president and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. “We stand on his foundation, and we are thrilled to honor him and welcome him to Cleveland.”
