CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will look a lot different starting in July.

According to the Rock Hall, renderings have been approved for several new additions that will transform the entire plaza in time for the Republican National Convention.

The changes are to include a "Long Live Rock" sign in big, bold letters in front of the museum. That will welcome visitors to the new, larger stage and outdoor cafe.

The Rock Hall will also have a 'Rock Box' art project involving sculptures that will line downtown Cleveland and play snippets from Hall of Famers.

“This activates our plaza and creates a communal space on the Lakefront," said Greg Harris, president and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. "It's the next step in a long-term plan to transform the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and we look forward to live music outside this summer.”

The Rock Hall hopes to have the new elements installed and active before July.
