No, we didn’t think we’d ever write these words either. But the five surviving members of Monty Python have announced that their circus is set to fly once again, performing a bunch of reunion shows at the O2 arena this summer. Tickets for the first date sold out in 43.5 seconds, but lots more dates have been announced. At the press conference to announce the huge news, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam (combined age 357) revealed that the show will mix greatest hits (given "modern, topical, Pythonesque twists"), material that’s never been performed live, and the odd new joke. The Pythons haven’t performed lived since 1980 at the Hollywood Bowl, and this London show will be their first live gig in England for 40 years.
Recently it was announced that the final gig—on July 20—will be the Pythons last ever live performance together. So this really is your last chance to catch Monty Python live.
