A name was unveiled for the new Arkansas Music Pavilion building in Rogers on Tuesday: Walmart Amp.

A logo combines the Walmart logo and arcing moves that reference the tent structure.

The board toured the construction site Tuesday prior to the naming announcement.

“Northwest Arkansas is quickly becoming known for its arts, culture, and high quality of life,” Doug McMillon, President & CEO of Walmart, said in a news release. “By creating a permanent home for the Walmart AMP in our community, we are making this region an even better place to live and work. Walmart is proud to support this state-of-the-art facility, which will be just down the road from the first Walmart store, and to help bring additional economic opportunity to the surrounding area.”
