AXS TV has announced that a 15-episode, third season order for the one-hour live concert series The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands. Hosted every Monday by Katie Daryl, the show features musical acts performing tributes to some of rock’s most iconic bands, with live concerts that look and sound just like the real thing.
The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands’ third season premiere will be on Monday, January 6th at 11 pm ET/8 pm PT, airing through mid-April. This season, the show is moving to the world famous Whisky A Go-Go club on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, from its previous home at The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles.
“The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands had two sold-out, successful seasons at The Roxy Theatre,” says Daryl. “I thought it would be fantastic to share the magic of The Sunset Strip with our viewers and move the show to Whisky A Go-Go for our third season.”
“To make things even cooler, Whisky A Go-Go is celebrating its 50th anniversary this January, and many of the bands we plan to pay tribute to this season have actually rocked out on the Whisky A Go-Go stage!”
This season’s acts bring a wider musical diversity than ever before. After dedicating the first two seasons primarily to classic rock, new acts include tributes to Prince, Garth Brooks and the Beastie Boys. The show will still feature tributes to many classic rock favorites such as KISS, Aerosmith and more.
