Listen to Chuck Berry on iHeartRadio

Chuck Berry says he's thrilled to be playing his 200th show at the Duck Room in his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri.  But the rock pioneer says he's not wrapping up his career with the performance. 

The 87-year-old music legend tells the "St. Louis Post-Dispatch" he'll "keep going for as long as the big man upstairs allows," and hopes he'll play another 200 shows at the venue. 

Berry performs monthly at the Duck Room, and has already scheduled show number 201.  After Wednesday's concert, he'll be returning to club on February 19th.
