Fifty years ago today, Godfather of Rock & Roll and St. Louis legend Chuck Berry played his famous hit "Johnny B. Goode" for the Teen Age Music International Show. The groundbreaking program was one of the the first rock-music concerts filmed and released in theaters featuring many famous musicians of the era, including the Supremes, James Brown, the Beach Boys and the Rolling Stones. Tickets for the event were distributed for free to local high school students, and the show was filmed over two nights. It became an immediate success as rock-addicted teenagers from all over the U.S. were given a chance to see their favorite musicians play live.
