(Classic Rock) Last month's Classic Rock Roll Of Honour in Tokyo will be broadcast on the Sky Arts channel in the UK in the coming weeks. Def Leppard, Jeff Beck, The Struts and Cheap Trick were among the big winners at the ceremony, which was held in Japan for the first time ever, with the spiritual home of Sumo wrestling Ryogoku Kokugikan Stadium in Tokyo packed with 8000 rock fans for the star-studded event on November 11.
It will air Sky Arts (Sky channel 121, Virgin channel 122) this month, with the date to be confirmed in due course. The TV show will be hosted by veteran radio presenter Nicky Horne and will include live performances from Cheap Trick, Richie Sambora and Orianthi and the All-Star Jam.
The All-Star Jam brought the curtain down on the sold-out event. Speaking after the ceremony, TeamRock Chief Executive Billy Anderson said: "It was a bold move to take the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour to Japan for the first time and we are delighted that it has been such a huge success.
"The lineup put together for the sell-out crowd who flocked to the Ryogoku Kokugikan Stadium was spectacular and every one of them will remember this night for years to come. We truly made history with this lineup." Read more here.
