The Police on CTV’s Spectacle: Elvis Costello with

The Police will tape an episode of CTV’s Spectacle: Elvis Costello with… in August in New York City. The television farewell will air as part of CTV’s new talk/performance series, set to premiere later this year in Canada, the United States (on Sundance Channel) and in the U.K. (on Channel 4).

For this historic music television event, Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland will perform and discuss with Elvis their varied and respective interests in music as individuals, as well as the remarkable chemistry together that has made The Police one of the biggest bands in music history.

This exclusive engagement with Elvis follows an exciting spring and summer for the host who has been touring with The Police on their massively successful reunion tour, to widespread acclaim.

Motown legend Smokey Robinson will also tape an episode of CTV’s Spectacle in August, exploring with Elvis his extraordinary 50 year career as a songwriter, singer and guiding light of soul/R&B.

“The Police and Smokey Robinson – it doesn’t get any better than this,” said Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. “Spectacle continues to make good on its promise to deliver an unpredictable and unprecedented television experience.”
