Monty Python’s final reunion show at the O2 Arena in London on July 20 will be “the last time we’ll be working together”, Michael Palin has confirmed.
The legendary comedy group will not go on tour and will go their separate ways after 10 London performances, he said.
Tickets for the July 20 show went on sale on Friday, April 4.
The reunion, which begins on July 1st, will see John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin appear together on stage for the first time since 2009.
The only absent member will be Graham Chapman, who died in 1989 at the age of 48.
An earlier statement from Monty Python’s promoters said the July 20 show would “probably” be their last performance together.
“The Pythons had hoped to take up some of the many offers to perform at arenas all over the world, but individual commitments to other projects over the next three years has made this impossible,” it said.
“The septuagenarian Pythons are well aware of what these shows mean to their fans. The shows at the O2 promise to be a spectacular celebration of Britain’s most iconic and influential comedians.”
