‘Rock & Roll Road Trip With Sammy Hagar’ Renewed For Season 3 By AXS TV

AXS TV has picked up a 12-episode third season of its hit series Road Trip With Sammy Hagar, for premiere in early 2018. Production began this month.

The upcoming season will feature Hagar traveling the country to interview and often perform with some of the most popular and influential musicians. Artists confirmed so far for Season 3 include Dave Grohl, Roger Daltrey, Sarah McLachlan, Bob Weir, Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo, among others.

“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.

Hosted by beloved rock showman Sammy Hagar, the upcoming series puts the spotlight on 12 all-new episodes as The Red Rocker (Hagar) talks and rocks with a roster of enduring icons. Additionally, the network is proud to welcome the world-famous Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, Florida as the exclusive presenting sponsor of the popular series. The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, Florida serves as the backdrop for one of the season’s most unforgettable episodes when Hagar heads to the resort and casino to perform his biggest hits on the Hard Rock Event Center’s legendary stage.

As part of AXS TV’s partnership with the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, Florida, the network will present a series of weekly vignettes covering the latest in music news and information in the Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood Music Minute, covering everything from concert tour dates and artist announcements, to music festival news and profiles of up-and-coming artists. Additionally, the series will highlight events at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, Florida, while taking viewers behind the scenes on the venue’s storied grounds, which includes the renowned Rock Vault — the temporary home to Hagar’s trademark checkered suit worn during his performance with VAN HALEN at the 1992 VMAs. The iconic ensemble is now on display along the marble-floored concourse of the newly opened casino at the resort, right next to David Bowie’s “Glass Spider” red suit, which he wore during the 1987 tour.

“I am so proud to be able to host this wild and crazy show for a fourth season,” Hagar said. “This is pure fun for me, getting to go around just hanging out and playing music with some of my favorite people in the world. It’s humbling to see that our viewers dig it as much as I do. I’m excited to keep this party going!”

AXS TV is proud to welcome the popular series back for a fourth season, packed with even more of the candid conversations and all-star jam sessions that our viewers love.”

“As one of the most iconic entertainment venues on the planet, it made perfect sense for Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood to partner with Sammy Hagar and AXS TV as the presenting sponsor for the ‘Rock & Roll Road Trip’ series,” said Auggie Cipollini, president of Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood. “Our culture is built on music, having fun and being a little irreverent on occasion. Most of the celebrities that Sammy interviews on the show will most likely have visited or performed at one of our Hard Rock venues. This is going to be a great partnership and we are thrilled that we have the opportunity to showcase rock and roll history and today’s most interesting celebrities to such a passionate and loyal audience.”

I really enjoyed last season. Hope this one is just as good.


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

AXS TV bids farewell to ‘Rock and Roll Road Trip with Sammy Hagar’
Buddy Iahn | November 5, 2020 | Radio/TV/Film/Broadway, Rock
Hour-long series finale airs live on Nov 8th

AXS TV’s fan-favorite rock and talk series Rock & Roll Road Trip With Sammy Hagar heads out for one last ride in the hour-long series finale event Rock & Roll Road Trip: King of the Road Live, airing Sunday, November 8th at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT.

Hosted by beloved rock icon Sammy Hagar, Rock & Roll Road Trip cemented itself as one of the network’s top performing programs, captivating viewers every week as the Red Rocker hit the road for candid conversations and epic jam sessions with some of the biggest names in entertainment. Past seasons have captured Hagar cruising across the country to legendary landmarks such as the Whisky A-Go-Go, the Fillmore Theatre, the SXSW Festival, the Red Rocks Amphitheatre and more, to rock out and talk shop with eclectic guests including Dave Grohl, Adam Levine, Vince Neil, Alice Cooper, John Mellencamp, Mick Fleetwood, Nancy Wilson, Willie Nelson, James Hetfield, Sarah McLachlan, and John Mayer, among many others.

In this unforgettable finale, Hagar gives the series the sendoff of a lifetime with an evening of laughs, music, and memories as he broadcasts live from the landmark Woodshed Studios in North Hollywood. Throughout the episode, Hagar looks back on some of his favorite moments, from the incredible sights he’s seen to the iconic entertainers he’s interviewed across five seasons and 56 episodes. The night also finds Hagar discussing the impact of the show on his life; reflecting on his time with Van Halen; showcasing some of his priceless bloopers; sharing rare never-before-seen footage; and taking the stage for a special live performance featuring three classic songs.

Additionally, Hagar catches up with fan-favorite actor Greg Grunberg (Star Wars, Heroes, Alias, A Star Is Born), owner of The Woodshed and drummer for the celebrity cover band The Action Figures, who is on-hand to give Hagar an exclusive tour of the one-of-a-kind, secret celebrity hangout, world-class multi-functioning studio and performance space. Grunberg is then joined by his fellow The Action Figures band mates Scott Grimes (The Orville, American Dad!, NCIS: Los Angeles), Adrian Pasdar (Heroes, Profit), Jack Coleman (The Office, Heroes), Nick Marzock (American Dad!), and Brad Savage (The Client List, CHiPS), before sitting down for discussions with additional special guests, including an appearance by iconic actor and musician Rick Springfield. The night concludes with a raucous two-song set with Hagar, his guests, and The Action Figures members performing, followed by a heartfelt rendition of the Van Halen signature “Dreams,” as Hagar takes the stage for a solo performance joined by his friend and The Circle bandmate Vic Johnson.

“I can’t believe it’s been five years already,” shares Hagar. “I set out to do one season of Rock & Roll Road Trip to see if I could pull off my own TV show and enjoy doing something I’d never done before. I never dreamed we’d do 56 episodes and five seasons. It’s been a blast.”

“Having been here for every show and shoot since day one, it has truly been amazing to see this series grow into the program it is today,” states AXS TV Executive Producer Stephen Stormer. “While this is the finale, we’re going out on a high note–pulling out all the stops with an unforgettable evening packed with music, memories, and a whole lot more, as we celebrate what the last five years have meant to us. We are so grateful to our many fans who have followed along on this incredible rock odyssey, and we hope that they will join us to rock out one last time in this unique live series finale.”

The first half of the fifth season premiered in April where Hagar checked in on his world-famous eatery The Cabo Wabo Cantina in Las Vegas where he also received the key to the city. The second half premiered in October with a tour of Ronnie Dunn’s unique ranch where the country star raises a different kind of livestock, followed by a lively jam session with Hagar, Dunn, and Kix Brooks. Other season five guests include Def Leppard, Big & Rich, Ted Nugent, Shaquille O’Neal, Rob Thomas, Brian May, James Hetfield, George Thorogood, among others.
