Brilliant songwriter, master of subtle wit and evincing charm, iconic wearer of hats, Elvis Costello has just been slated to host a weekly music-variety talkshow on Sundance Channel. Each hour-long segment will be a platform for talk about the arts (not limited to music) and will include performances from music to vaudeville. The legendary Elton John will executive produce the show and make frequent appearances. You’ll have to wait till December to get your first look at “Spectacle: Elvis Costello with…,” but I am already excited by this announcement.
More good news from Sundance Channel. They’ve just confirmed an additional season of another great music series “Live From Abbey Road,” which takes you inside the famed studios for an intimate look at recording sessions with some of your favorite, or soon-to-be favorite artists.
