Elvis Costello is to become a fixture on both British and North American screens with his brand new TV show: “Spectacle: Elvis Costello with…”.

Over the course of 13 episodes, Elvis will chat and perform with some very special guests, including Elton John, Tony Bennett and Lou Reed.

The show will be broadcast in both the UK and US later in the year. Elvis also received an honoury doctorate in Music from Liverpool University last week, joking to reporters that he was “humbled to receive it in the company of those who have actually been working hard for their degrees”.

Tonight Elvis and The Imposters embark on the second leg of a U.S. tour supporting The Police.
