The Saturday night (March 18) show at The Agora in Cleveland, included fourteen KISS songs among the seventeen selections along with two songs from his 1978 solo album and an impromptu version of Johnny B. Goode to salute Chuck Berry who had died earlier in the day.

Simmons said of Berry “It’s a very sad day today. One of the founding fathers of rock and roll has passed on… if it wasn’t for Chuck Berry there wouldn’t have been rock and roll.”
