Plot Synopsis

AXS TV CONCERTS HOSTED BY MARK CUBAN is a series of summer concerts broadcast live on AXS TV from the Bomb Factory in Deep Ellum in Dallas, featuring these legendary bands curated by AXS TV founder Mark Cuban: the Monkees, Poison frontman Bret Michaels, KC and the Sunshine Band, and Bad Company. The series airs Thursdays at 9pm ET/6pm PT from August 11 through September 8, and each live performance will be 90 minutes long, with a repeat at 11:30pm ET. Each program shines the spotlight on these beloved bands, as they blaze through their biggest hits in an intimate setting. "With this exclusive series, I wanted to craft a fun live concert event, giving viewers the best seat in the house to experience these legendary acts," said Mark Cuban, AXS TV founder and CEO. "From disco and funk to classics and metal, there's truly something here for everyone to enjoy, as we send summer out on a high note with some of the most beloved anthems of all-time." Concert goers can get free general-admission tickets on a first-come, first-serve basis. Details about upcoming concerts, including where to get tickets:

August 11: The Monkees: The show will encompass a full multimedia evening of music, rare films and one-of-a-kind photographs culled from the archives. Backed by the same crew of musicians from their 2012 run, Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz, and Peter Tork will also perform an unaccompanied set as a trio. This foray into tracks from their 1967 homespun #1 long player, HEADQUARTERS, is sure to be among the highlights.

August 18: The Village People (cancelled)

August 25: Bret Michaels: Bret became a rock icon as the frontman of Poison, one of the biggest hair metal bands of the 1980s. The band has also charted ten singles to the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100, including six Top 10 singles and the number-one single, "Every Rose Has Its Thorn." Besides his career as lead singer, he has several solo albums to his credit, including the soundtrack album to the movie A Letter from Death Row in which Michaels starred, wrote and directed in 1998, and a classic Poison-style rock album, Songs of Life, in 2003.

September 1: KC & The Sunshine Band: Harry Wayne Casey is better known as the founder and leader of KC and The Sunshine Band. Their second album, KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND, was released in 1975, went triple platinum and contained the #1 hits GET DOWN TONIGHT, THAT'S THE WAY (I LIKE IT), BOOGIE SHOES and ROCK YOUR BABY. Their first record, BLOW YOUR WHISTLE, made the top 15 on the R&B chart. KC & The Sunshine Band became the first act to score four #1 pop singles in one 12-month period since the Beatles in 1964. Three of those singles crossed over to become #1 R&B, as well. KC's third album, PART 3, released in 1976, also went triple platinum and contained the #1 singles I'M YOUR BOOGIE MAN, SHAKE YOUR BOOTY and KEEP IT COMIN' LOVE. The band's string of hit singles continued with BOOGIE SHOES, which was included on the SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER soundtrack, PLEASE DON'T GO, and YES, I'M READY, a duet with high school friend Teri DeSario.

September 8: Bad Company: Formed in 1973, Bad Company came to life when singer and songwriter Paul Rodgers was looking to start anew after the disintegration of his legendary band Free. His vocals and songwriting were a main ingredient during Free's impressive five-year run, a period of time that saw the release of seven influential albums that featured Free's minimalist blues-rock approach. Rodgers had met Mott The Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs and after jamming together and listening to new songs that Ralphs had penned and songs that Rodgers had penned, Ralphs made the decision to leave Mott and form a new band with Rodgers. The duo recruited former King Crimson bassist/vocalist Boz Burrell, added drummer Simon Kirke and christened themselves Bad Company, the name inspired by Rodgers. Rodgers brought in Led Zeppelin manager Peter Grant and Bad Company became the first band signed to Zeppelin's Swan Song label.
