LOS ANGELES – August 17, 2017 – Following the success of its second season, AXS TV today announced that its original music series ROCK & ROLL ROAD TRIP WITH SAMMY HAGAR PRESENTED BY MERCURY INSURANCE has been greenlit for a third season.  Production on the 12-episode season began this month and is scheduled for air in early 2018.

The upcoming season of ROCK & ROLL ROAD TRIP will feature Sammy Hagar (The Red Rocker) traveling the country to interview and often perform with some of the most popular and influential musicians –artists already confirmed include Dave Grohl, Roger Daltrey, Sarah McLachlan, Bob Weir, Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo and more.

"It’s been a cool surprise how much we’re all enjoying the interview part of this show because as artists what happens on stage or in the music studio is the easy/fun stuff and the interviews often feel like the work,” remarked Sammy Hagar. “It’s like when the camera lights go on and the questions start, that typical wall or guard is down because it’s me on the other end and not a seasoned journalist asking the questions.  So the flow is organic and its easy – to the point where we’re both surprised how deep and real the conversations get – we’re definitely forgetting the camera is even there and I think that’s really connecting with the viewers, too.”

“‘ROCK & ROLL ROAD TRIP WITH SAMMY HAGAR’ is the perfect fit for our TV audience, giving them unprecedented access into the lives of some of today’s top musicians,” said Evan Haiman, AXS TV’s Vice President of Programming and Development. “The series has continued to gain new viewers with each of its prior two seasons, and we look forward to building on that success with the incredible crop of high-caliber talent that we have lined up for season three.”

ROCK & ROLL ROAD TRIP WITH SAMMY HAGAR is produced in-house by AXS TV. Sammy Hagar, Tom Consolo, Evan Haiman and Kari Hagar all serve as executive producers and the series is produced by Stephen Stormer.

THE X FACTOR UK RE-SIGNS JUDGING PANEL

THE X FACTOR UK RETURNS TO AXS TV THIS FALL;

COMPETITION SERIES SETS JUDGING PANEL FOR NEW SEASON

Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger, and Louis Walsh Sign Up As Judges For Season 14

 

LOS ANGELES – June 19, 2017 – With production of its landmark 14TH season underway, THE X FACTOR UK announced today the return of one of its most popular judging panels, as fan-favorite music mogul and X FACTOR creator Simon Cowell will once again be joined by music manager, TV host, and original X FACTOR UK judge Sharon Osbourne; as well as chart-topping songstress Nicole Scherzinger; and esteemed music manager Louis Walsh. Beloved UK TV personality Dermot O’Leary is also back, serving as emcee for the weekly festivities. The upcoming season is set to make its North American debut this fall, only on AXS TV.

For over a decade, THE X FACTOR UK has set the benchmark in finding worldwide superstars, with X FACTOR UK artists selling more than 200 million records worldwide and earning 200 Number One’s. The program’s rich legacy includes international boy band sensation One Direction; soulful GRAMMY®-nominated songstress Leona Lewis; multi-platinum pop star Olly Murs; and dance-pop quartet Little Mix, who were the first group to win the competition. Additionally, THE X FACTOR UK is one of the first stops for major recording artists to promote their latest hits, with AXS TV viewers being among the first in America to enjoy Adeles “Hello”; Coldplay’s “Adventure Of A Lifetime”; Taylor Swifts “Shake It Off”; Maroon 5’s “Animals”; Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me”; One Direction’s “Where Do Broken Hearts Go,” performed live for the first time on TV; and Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” among many others.

THE X FACTOR UK is a tremendously popular global series that has resonated with our American audience over the past three years—so much so, in fact, that it has quickly become one of the most popular shows on our network,” said Evan Haiman, Vice President of Programming and Development at AXS TV. “A big reason for that is the judging panel, they give the series unprecedented charm and personality and the viewers enjoy that so much. We are excited to have Simon, Sharon, Nicole, and Louis back on board, as THE X FACTOR UK returns to AXS TV for the fourth consecutive year.”
