Feb. 18 (UPI) -- Former Late Show with David Letterman band leader and sidekick Paul Shaffer is set to host a new interview show that will air on SiriusXM and AXS TV.
The series will be conducted in a recording studio, allowing Shaffer and his guests to perform.
Paul Shaffer Plus One will be airing on Sunday nights on SiriusXM and AXS TV in the summer. Shaffer confirmed the news on Twitter Monday by retweeting an article about the series.
"In this show I get to go one-on-one with all my favorite recording artists," Shaffer said in a statement. "We talk mainly music and if the topic turns to a specific tune, we demonstrate in song. It's a dream come true."
Shaffer is coming off a Las Vegas residency at Cleopatra's Barge. He was joined once again by Letterman onstage in September as the former late night host made a surprise appearance.
