AC/DC singer Brian Johnson's star-studded UK interview show to get US premiere in September

n 2017, a new interview show called Brian Johnson's A Life on the Road, hosted by the AC/DC frontman, debuted on British TV. Now, the series' first two seasons are set to get their U.S. premiere this fall on AXS TV.

The program features Brian Johnson traveling to different locations around the world to share stories and hang out with his fellow music legends. The first episode of A Life on the Road debuts September 15 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT and finds Johnson visiting Sting in New York City.

You can check out a preview clip of the show at AXS.tv that captures the two singers dropping by the site of the historic punk club CBGB, where Sting's old band The Police played its first U.S. gig.

Discussing his first impression of the notoriously seedy venue, Sting says, "It was kind of a spooky place, but it was full of history. Television played there, Talking HeadsBlondie."

The second episode of the series, which will air on September 22, will feature Johnson and Robert Plant taking a trip to North Wales, where they explore a ruined castle, and discuss the Led Zeppelin frontman's passion for blues music, the formation of his famous band and his solo career.
