    We volunteer as Tribute! Okay, so what if we borrowed a phrase from The Hunger Games.

    The tribute band phenomenon returns to AXS TV on September 9 for the fourth season premiere of The World's Greatest Tribute Bands, a weekly live concert series celebrating the music from iconic artists in history.

    Host and executive producer Katie Daryl introduces an all-new lineup of tribute bands, performing live each week from the world famous Whisky A Go-Go club in Hollywood. The season kicks off with acclaimed Elvis Presley tribute artist Justin Shandor on September 9 at 10PM ET in a special, 90-minute tribute to The King.

    The series gives viewers a two-for-one special September 30 as the music of Billy Joel and Elton John is performed dueling pianos-style by Billy Joel 2 Elton John.

    Aces!

    "This season, we will not only deliver another full line-up of amazing tribute bands, but we've also mixed things up, offering incredible music experiences that could only happen through the power of the tribute," said Daryl. "Nowhere else will you hear the music of Billy Joel and Elton John going head-to-head live or see one band take on the music of two rock legends like Boston and Styx, with a lead singer who actually tours with Boston."

    Fans in the Los Angeles area can attend live broadcasts of The World's Greatest Tribute Bands for free. Tickets are available here.

    If you are an Angelino, do it up! Hit up one of these shows.

    The season's concert schedule is as follows:

    Sept. 9 - Justin Shandor: A Tribute to Elvis ***Extended Version***
    Sept. 16 - Pyromania: A Tribute to Def Leppard
    Sept. 23 - Fortunate Son: A Tribute to Creedence Clearwater Revival
