The Sundance Channel has revealed all the details behind Spectacle: Elvis Costello with..., a talk show featuring such top-notch guests as Lou Reed, Tony Bennett, James Taylor, and Rufus Wainright. According to a press release, Costello's show "features everything from intimate one-on-one conversations with legendary performers and notable newcomers to thematic panel discussions. Guest artists not only talk but perform—demonstrating the development and creation of their music and playing new, stripped-down or solo versions of some of their best and most loved songs." Costello will also spark every episode with a fresh rendition of a song by the night's featured guest.
Spectacle premiers on Wednesday, December 3, with a little pop star you may have heard of: Elton John. For a detailed rundown of the series' first season, check out www.sundancechannel.com/spectacle.
