Series 2 of MTV’s Gonzo to Premiere Friday Night (25 February)

Following on from the success of the first series, Alexa Chung returns tomorrow night as the host of series 2 of MTV’s Gonzo. Alexa has called this show “her dream job”, and who wouldn’t, really? On each episode, she’ll be revealing her ‘Top 3’ things rocking her world that week – anything from brand new bands, gadgets, books, films, whatever cool stuff that’s on her mind. And every week she gets to meet a load of exciting music and popular culture personalities and gets to ask them the kinds of questions you won’t ever hear on any other chat shows. Of course, the success of Gonzo rests in your hands, as a centrepiece of these unusual q&a sessions is the Gonzola, a tombula filled full of questions from people like you. These personalities also get to weigh in and stump for their favourite new and emerging talent; for example, in the last series Bloc Party frontman-gone-solo Kele did just that.

But wait. A music show wouldn’t be a music show with live performances, and Gonzo will continue to showcase up and coming talent performing stripped down, acoustic versions. In addition to these exclusive to Gonzo performances, a Video of the Week, plucked straight from the MTV playlist, as well as a Director’s Cut feature allowing bands to walk us through their latest visual creations will be on every episode of Gonzo.

We’ve been told that the famed Gonzo sofa has been “slightly soiled” and to ‘blame Mark Ronson” – not going to touch that one. But we will venture that pants wetting may occur when you consider the guests that have already been confirmed for this second season of Gonzo: the recently returned Foo Fighters, Jessie J, Good Charlotte, Beady Eye, My Chemical Romance and comedian Russell Howard. Quite exciting.

Catch the first ep of series 2 tomorrow night (Friday) at 7 PM on MTV Music, with a repeat at 8 PM on MTV Rocks.
