Chuck Berry's music has transcended generations. He earns respect to this day because he is truly an entertainer. Berry gained success by watching the audience's reaction and playing accordingly, putting his listeners' amusement above all else. For this reason, tunes like "Johnny B. Goode," "Maybellene" and "Memphis" have become anthems to an integrated American youth and popular culture. Berry is a musical icon who established rock and roll as a musical form and brought the worlds of black and white together in song.
* VERY IMPORTANT: All New Year's Eve ticket holders should enter the block from the NorthEast corner of 42nd Street and 8th Avenue. To enter the block, ALL ticketholders must present their hard ticket at the police barricade to get on the block. Anyone with Will Call tickets should look for a BB King Representative (they will be wearing BB King Hats & Sweatshirts and may have a BB King's sign), who will give them their ticket there, at which point they should follow the directions listed above.
