UPDATE!!! Monty Python is now officially on!!! The show, which will be known as “Final Reunion. Sort Of,” will be televised and will see the legendary comedy troupe come together on July 1, 2014 for a live performance at London’s 02 Arena. Tickets will go on sale on November 25th.
Eric Idle, who will direct, said one of the reasons for pulling the event together was “If we left it too long, it would be too late.” It is currently planned as a one-time only performance, but a tour is not out of the question, the group said.
There will be a mix of new material and old, although Cleese noted, “People really want to see the old hits, but we don’t want to do them in a predictable way.”
