Monty Python won't be coming to Australia; announce final show and release new song.

After months of will they/won’t they speculation, the Monty Python team have confirmed that they will NOT be touring their hugely successful reunion shows outside of the UK. To give fans that were holding out hope one last chance to buy tickets, tickets to the 10th and final show on the 20th of July will go on sale today at Noon (UK time).

The full statement from the organisers is below, followed by a brand new song from the group, which is their first release since 1999. The track, “The Silly Walks Song”, has been written for, and will geature in, the live show. We imagine it’s there because Cleese has admitted he’s too old to do the walk!

They’ll film the live show, so if you can’t make it to the UK, we’re sure you’ll be able to see it in some form.

In spite of offers from arenas all over the world for further shows, the Pythons reluctantly have to announce that the last night of their run of shows at the London O2 Arena on 20th July 2014 will be the Last Night of the Pythons Live. All of them have many commitments elsewhere and it is difficult for them to find another window when they would all be free to work together again.

Because until now the Pythons were not sure whether they would be available to do any more shows after London O2 Arena run, tickets for the 20th July 2014 have not been available to the general public for some time. Now that the decision has been made that the 20th July will be the Last Night of the Pythons Live, the final tickets for this historic night will go on sale at 12 noon on Friday 4th April. If you wish to come and say farewell to the Pythons, please come and join them for their last and special night.
