    S 2 : Ep 1 - 12/9/09

    Elvis Costello and friends return for a second season of "Spectacle," a rock & roll remix of intimate conversation and live music. Internationally acclaimed during its first season, Season Two promises to be even better. In this episode, the Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter welcomes U2's Bono and The Edge, who join Elvis and The Imposters in a rave-up performance of two of Costello's classics : "Alison" and "Pump It Up."moreless

    S 1 : Ep 13 - 2/25/09

    Lucky number 13, the final curtain call of the season on Elvis' vibrant and truly unique interview and performance driven magical mystery musical tour, closes with a true American master : Smokey Robinson. The Motown icon reminisces about fifty years as a singer, songwriter, producer and record executive. Along the way he sings some of the classic tunes he created and forged into the very fabric of the American soul. As a juicy extra, Smokey, reports the Sundance web site, "also sings a surprising cover made famous by Norah Jones". The show, and the season, concludes with a bit of trans-Atlantic history : an Elvis-Smokey "duet performance of Smokey's classic You've Really Got a Hold on Me". That song, a 1962 hit single by The Miracles, and later a 1998 Grammy Hall of Fame inductee, made its way across the ocean where The Beatles acquired a copy and added it to their show early in 1963. It was the first track recorded for their second album With the Beatles. Much of their early success was founded on Smokey and Motown magic, just as, years later, a young Declan Patrick MacManus (aka Elvis Costello) was inspired by the magic of The Beatles to begin forging his musical adventure. Elvis says that, due to scheduling difficulties, he isn't certain if they'll be a second season of Spectacle. Here's hoping that it works out, because this season has been one hell of a wild, sweet magical ride.moreless
  • The Police

    S 1 : Ep 6 - 1/7/09

    The format of Elvis' fantastic interview/performance show changes this week as Elvis interviews The Police both as a group and individually (perhaps wise as Andy, Sting and Stewart have always been a bit combustible in tandem). Elvis and The Police have toured together recently and it shows in their music. Sting performs the original version of the Police's big hit Roxanne and then Elvis duets separately with both Sting and Andy. For the grand finale Elvis and The Imposters join forces with The Police for what the Sundance web site promises is "an unprecedented 'mash-up' of a Costello classic and a Police essential, as well as a surprising cover of a time-tested hard rock anthem".moreless

    S 1 : Ep 2 - 12/10/08

    Lou Reed joins Elvis for his interview/performance show. Reed, the Velvet Underground legend, discusses music, creativity and all things New York : including music, art and the old days when he was known as the Prince of Darkness. During the show, Reed is joined by Julian Schnabel, an old working buddy. Schnabel reminisces and performs what the Sundance web site describes as "a riveting - and totally spontaneous - spoken-word performance." In addition, Reed joins Elvis and his band for two musical performances.moreless
