The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland is planning a special weekend of celebrations tributing two-time inductee Michael Jackson June 25-27.

Beginning Friday, June 25, visitors can see footage of the Jackson 5's induction ceremony in 1997 and "The King of Pop's" solo induction from 2001.

On Saturday, a DJ will spin Michael Jackson songs beginning at 10 a.m., with plans for dancing demonstrations and contests for prizes. The day culminates with a 6-9 p.m. outdoor dance party, weather permitting.

Sunday, the Rock Hall's annual Rock and Soul festival will feature a live tribute performance to Jackson from singer Angie Stone.

Two-day passes to the event (good for Saturday-Sunday) are $25 in advance via Ticketmaster or by phone, 800-745-3000 (code: MOONWALK).
