Season 2 of ‘The Allison Hagendorf Show’ Launches Thursday

Allison Hagendorf, who has held the amazing title of Spotify’s Global Head of Rock, has announced the second season of her self-titled weekly interview show, which premieres Thursday (March 7) for a weekly, 30-episode series airing every Thursday at 11 a.m. ET/ 8 a.m. PT on YouTube, Instagram and Vevo.

The show’s debut will coincide with International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, and features a conversation with Grammy-Award winning Halestorm frontwoman, Lzzy Hale, who is also being recognized this week as part of Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s latest exhibit, “Revolutionary Women in Music: Left of Center.”

The show aims to continue Hagendorf’s mission of bridging the gap between artists and fans. Upcoming guests include legendary Chic cofounder and David Bowie/Madonna producer Nile Rodgers, Australian celebrity chef and TV personality Curtis Stone, English comedian and actor Noel Fielding, Black Crowes’ front man Chris Robinson, and the rock band Incubus. The show will also spotlight actors, chefs, athletes and more — anyone with a love of music and a rock and roll spirit.

“It has always been my passion to celebrate the music, culture, and storytelling that inspires, entertains, and connects us all,” Hagendorf says. “It’s incredibly rewarding to sit down with such inspirational icons each week, knowing we’re hearing their intimate stories for the first time, and learning from their personal journeys. I’m honored to offer my guests an opportunity to share their heartfelt experiences, celebrating the ordinary in the extraordinary, and connecting with fans on a deeper level.”

The show premiered last year with guests including Keanu Reeves, Sheryl Crow, Joan Jett, Mike Shinoda, Billy Corgan, Tom Morello, John Taylor of Duran Duran and more.

Hagendorf has also teamed up with producer-promoter Danny Wimmer Presents, the company behind multiple music festivals; the show will be filmed in the company’s studio. “We are big fans of Allison and have been for decades,” says Wimmer. “She is an unbelievable storyteller in not only the rock n’ roll space, but in pop culture. We watched the first season and saw something special in the works and knew we had to be involved in this chapter of her prolific career. We’re thrilled to be partnering up to produce storiesrooted in our mutual love of music.”
