Monty Python have added an extra four dates for their live comeback show at London’s 02 Arena next July after tickets for the first show sold out in less than a minute.
Thousands of fans jammed ticketing websites from 10am today in the hope of getting their hands on tickets for the cult comedy group’s first performance together in 30 years.
But tickets for the July 1 reunion performance at the O2 Arena sold out in 43.5 seconds.
However, the Pythons have since added extra shows for July 2, 3, 4 and 5 at the venue in Greenwich.
The five surviving Pythons, including Gospel Oak resident Michael Palin and Highgate-based Terry Jones, delighted fans by revealing plans for a reunion last week.
