The legendary Abbey Road studios is set to host a new TV series which will feature appearances from some of the world’s top music stars.

Twelve episodes of Channel 4’s ‘Live From Abbey Road’ will be broadcast, each show will feature three acts playing three songs each.

Acts set to appear on the show include The Who, Massive Attack, Paul Simon, The Killers, Richard Ashcroft and Diana Ross.

The show will have no studio audience or presenter with acts bringing their own engineers and given one day to record the sessions.

Show producer Michael Gleason told Music Week magazine: "It's a show really produced by musicians, and they're in their creative home of the recording studio."

The programmes are expected to be broadcast in November.
