Fans who missed out on tickets to Monty Python’s sold-out reunion shows will be able to catch a live broadcast of the comedy group’s final performance on U.K. TV.
The beloved comedy troupe will hit the stage at London’s O2 Arena in July for a run of shows, which sold out seconds after becoming available last November.
However, fans will be able to catch their last show on 20 July from the comfort of their own homes as it will be broadcast live on Britain’s comedy channel Gold.
Eric Idle says, “What could be finer at the end of a long life in comedy, than a chance to reunite with old pals and say goodbye to all our fans in one final mad musical show. We are very excited that not only do we get the chance to screw up on stage, we get a chance to screw up live on TV too.”
The run will mark the first time the group – Idle, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Michael Palin – have performed together in public since 1983.
