The Ronnie Wood Show makes its U.S. debut on July 11, 2018 on AXS TV with guest Paul McCartney

The Ronnie Wood Show will make its U.S. television debut when AXS TV presents season one of the U.K. series, beginning on July 11. The program will air two episodes each week back-to-back at 8 p.m. Eastern/5 p.m. Pacific with encore broadcasts every Sunday night.

Hosted by the Rolling Stones guitarist, the network’s announcement notes: “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 stories from his prolific career, and sits down for revealing interviews and intimate jam sessions with some of classic rock’s biggest names.”

On the July 11 premiere, Wood is joined by Paul McCartney, who reminisces about his career before performing a set list of songs that both powered his career and impacted his life. In the interview, the pair talk about such artists as Chuck Berry, Marvin Gaye and the Beach Boys.
