Elvis Costello is to host his own show called “Spectacle: Elvis Costello With…”.

Sir Elton John, whose Rocket Pictures is co-producing the series, will also appear in an episode but the full line-up has not yet been revealed.

The show will feature interviews and performances with other well-known musicians and discussions with celebrity guests. But Costello said he would not be digging for salacious gossip: “I’d rather hear about a deep love or a curiosity that might be obscured by fame.”

“This is a wonderful opportunity to talk in complete thoughts about music, movies, art or even vaudeville, then frame it with unique and illustrative performances,” he added.

The series was originally conceived for the Canadian channel CTV but will be broadcast in the UK on Channel 4.
