MEMPHIS, Dec. 25 (UPI) -- Memphis is scheduled to become the new home of a satellite exhibition from Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Planned for Memphis' Gibson Beale Street Showcase facility, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame On Tour will open as soon as major renovations can be completed, possibly by next fall, the Memphis Commercial-Appeal said.

A former competitor for the original Hall of Fame, Memphis will now feature the two constant exhibits of "500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll" and "50 years of Rock and Roll."

Also set to be added to the locale is regular live entertainment and a new format of dinner theater.

To honor the new musical locale, the newspaper said, a free concert will be held Jan. 13 featuring performances from Amy Lavere, William Lee Ellis and William Lee Ellis.
