NBC Washington– Fans will have the chance to say goodbye to Go-Go music legend Chuck Brown on Tuesday.

A public viewing will begin at 11 a.m. at the Howard Theatre, and continues until 10 p.m. this evening. The casket arrived at the Howard Theatre earlier this morning, and it was placed right below the theater’s stage.

By 9:30 a.m., the closures will include 9th Street NW to Florida Ave NW, as well as 7th and 8th Streets between Florida and S. Streets

A large crowd is expected to attend today’s viewing and services.
