Monty Python Now Up to 10 Dates in London, More to Come


I did tell you that the Monty Python reunion would add up to around 100 shows before it was all done. A few people told me I was crazy, that the Pythons would never pull it off. But here we are: they’ve got 10 shows booked the O2 Arena outside of London after adding five more dates tonight. The shows now run July 1st-5th, and 15th-20th. Will there be more? Absolutely. Then look for dates in New York and Los Angeles for early September. AEG Live is supposedly handling the tour, which will spread out in the U.S. before heading to Europe, Australia, and so on. Python-mania is upon us!
