Sirius XM Radio announced today that action sports icon and SiriusXM host Tony Hawk will sit down for an exclusive, live Q&A session with an audience of SiriusXM listeners at the SiriusXM studios in New York City.
SiriusXM's Town Hall with Tony Hawk will air live on Faction, channel 41, on Monday, September 10 at 7:00 pm ET. The special will be hosted by skateboarder and director Stacy Peralta, director of Bones Brigade: An Autobiography, which is scheduled to be released on November 2, 2012.
The event is part of SiriusXMs Town Hall series, intimate gatherings with iconic artists and studio audiences of SiriusXM listeners. Previous SiriusXM Town Hall specials have featured Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Coldplay, Ringo Starr, Roger Waters, Renée Fleming, Gregg Allman, Usher, Ronnie Dunn, Linkin Park, Ziggy Marley and the surviving members of Nirvana.
The Town Hall special will feature the legendary skateboarder and host of SiriusXM's Tony Hawk's Demolition Radio answering a variety of questions from the studio audience about his career as a skateboarder, his life's work of building skateparks for underprivileged communities, his games, and more.
"I'm looking forward to talking with the live audience and answering questions with Stacy," said Tony Hawk. "I'm proud to be a part of his new documentary and I hope to enlighten fans about our history together and the evolution of action sports in general."
"Tony's talent and passion have taken a niche sport and helped turn it into a phenomenon with international popularity and appeal. He has crossed the lines of action sports, gaming and music to become one of the coolest brand ambassadors of our time, not to mention one of the driving forces powering our Faction channel," said Scott Greenstein, President and CCOfficer at SiriusXM.
"Tony lives his life in non-stop action and listeners will get a broad look into what it's like to be a legendary pro-skater and get an expansive look into the icon's life without boundaries."
