Los Angeles, CA (June 12, 2018) - AXS TV, the premier destination for classic rock programming, is bringing a beloved U.K. series stateside as the network presents season one (11 episodes) of The Ronnie Wood Show, making its U.S. debut on Wednesday, July 11. The program will air two episodes each week back-to-back at 8pE/5pP and 8:30pE/5:30pP respectively, with encore broadcasts every Sunday night at 8pE/5pP and 8:30pE/5:30pP. Hosted by legendary Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, the series gives viewers a unique look into Wood's award-winning radio show - bringing them behind the scenes and into the studio as he plays the songs that inspired him, shares incredible stories from his prolific career, and sits down for revealing interviews and intimate jam sessions with some of rock's biggest names.

The season kicks off with a special hour-long premiere event on July 11, that finds Wood joined by rock superstar Paul McCartney, who reminisces about his unparalleled legacy before performing an impressive set list of songs that both powered his career and impacted his life. During the insightful interview, Woods and McCartney talked about these early influences in their life like Chuck Berry's poetic "Little Queenie," Marvin Gaye's "Hitch Hike," The Beach Boys "God Only Knows," which is McCartney's favorite song by the California band.

Other notable guests include shock rock pioneer Alice Cooper, who talks about the Detroit rock scene and shares a humorous anecdote about a stage stunt gone wrong (July 18 at 8pE); Wood's Faces bandmate Ian McLagan, who reflects on the band's '70s heyday, and touches on the newly reunited act's future plans following their smash hit world tour (July 18 at 8:30pE); Guns N' Roses axeman Slash, who talks about his lifelong love of music and passion for the guitar (July 25 at 8pE); and Stereophonics frontman Kelly Jones, who reveals the meaning behind the hit track "A Thousand Trees" (July 25 at 8:30pE).

Then, the season continues with acclaimed DJ and producer Mark Ronson, who opens up about working with the late Amy Winehouse (August 1 at 8pE); Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie, who recalls meeting Wood at a party at Kate Moss' house (August 1 at 8:30pE); Mick Hucknall, Wood's Faces bandmate, who talks about sharing a flat with Jimi Hendrix and being chased around by Janis Joplin (August 8 at 8pE); guitarist Steve Cropper, who reminisces about writing "(Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay" with Otis Redding and crafting the trademark "Soul Man" riff (August 8 at 8:30pE); author, model, and Wood's old flame, Pattie Boyd, who famously inspired the Eric Clapton staple "Layla" (August 15 at 8pE); and Wood's dear friend Toots Hibbert, who engages in a lively jam session, discusses his career in Jamaica, and shares anecdotes about Bob Marley (August 15 at 8:30pE).

"Ronnie Wood is truly one of the most enduring figures in rock and roll," said Evan Haiman, vice president of music programming and production, AXS TV. "Not only has he helped create some of the greatest songs of all time, he's also experienced - firsthand - some of the most important moments in music. In this series, he shares these priceless memories with viewers, inviting some of his famous friends along for the ride as he guides us all on the ultimate trip down memory lane."

As part of AXS TV's classic rock summer programming lineup, the network also includes a Sunday Night Rocks featuring several notable performances, including guitar maestro Carlos Santana taking the stage at one of the most important and influential concert events of all time in the premiere of Santana Live At The 1982 US Festival on June 10 at 10pE. Then, on July 1 at 9pE, Katie Daryl launches new episodes of the popular countdown series The Top Ten Revealed with a look at rock's greatest Songs About Sex; other season two highlights include Epic Songs Of '73 and One Hit Wonders, with notable guests such as Dee Snider, Lita Ford, Eddie Money, and Matt Pinfield, among others. And, at 9:30pE, music guru Eddie Trunk kicks off the series premiere of TrunkFest with a trip to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, where he sits down with Southern Rock superstar George Thorogood, and gets schooled in the ways of motorcycle stunts with Doug Danger. Other season one highlights include the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience, where Trunk talks to Tom Morello, Taylor Hawkins, and Chuck D; and the Castaway with Southern Ground event, where Trunk meets up with Country chart-toppers Blackberry Smoke and the Zac Brown Band.

Also starting July 1, the network puts the spotlight on eight unforgettable concert events every week at 10pE, opening with Ronnie Wood and The Rolling Stones' historic 2016 performance in the premiere of Havana Moon: The Rolling Stones Live In Cuba.
