AXS TV will have viewers rockin’ in a winter wonderland this Christmas with three days of holiday concerts packed with unforgettable performances of beloved Yuletide classics from some of music’s biggest names. The festivities kick off with a special Saturday Stack Marathon on December 21 starting at 12pE, and continue on Christmas Eve with an all-day block of films, concerts, and specials on Tuesday, December 24 at 10:30aE, culminating in a Christmas Day lineup on Wednesday, December 25 starting at 10:30aE.
Highlights of AXS TV’s Holiday Concert Marathon include country icon Faith Hill taking the stage with a 31-piece orchestra and a big band to deliver a powerful set featuring “Holly, Jolly Christmas,” “Silent Night,” “O Come All Ye Faithful,” and more in Faith Hill—Joy To The World; as well as Rod Stewart: Merry Christmas, Baby, an all-star evening that finds the chart-topping crooner joining famous friends Michael Bublé, Cee-Lo Green, and Mary J. Blige as they perform festive favorites “We Three Kings,” “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!,” and “Silver Bells,” among others; and rock n’ roll trailblazers Heart taking over their hometown with a sleigh-full of unconventional Christmas hits such as “Santa’s Going South,” “Remember Christmas,” and “Ring Them Bells,” alongside fellow superstars Sammy Hagar, Shawn Colvin, Pat Monahan, and Richard Marx in Heart & Friends: Home For The Holidays.
The block also puts the spotlight on other notable offerings such as Trans-Siberian Orchestra: The Ghosts Of Christmas Eve, a visionary cinematic tale blending music, magic, and drama as a young runaway makes her journey home on the night before Christmas; A Twisted Christmas: Live In Vegas, Twisted Sister’s Sin City spectacular boasting a unique stage show and wicked renditions of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” “Heavy Metal Christmas,” and “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” along with some of their biggest hits.
“Our annual marathon of holiday concerts has become a true fan-favorite for our viewers throughout the years, and we’re proud to bring them even more of the festive programming they love with this special three-day event,” said Lucia McCalmont, Vice President Of Program Acquisitions, AXS TV. “Music lovers of all ages won’t want to miss a minute of these unforgettable concerts, as some of the most iconic artists in rock, pop, country, and more put their own unique spin on an eclectic slate of timeless holiday classics.
