The Muppets are coming to the O2! It’s time to light the lights!

Considering our endless UK love for them, it’s amazing really that its taken this long for The Muppets to bring their live show here but finally, after a sell-out trio of shows at the Hollywood Bowl, the inspirational, celebrational, muppetational team are bringing their full-length live show ‘The Muppets Take London‘ and it’ll be live at the O2 on Friday 13 and Saturday 14 July 2018 – that’s this year!!

Based on their hit 1980s variety TV show, Kermit The Frog will once again lead an all-star cast alongside Miss Piggy as they’ll be joined by very special celebrity guests for musical performances, sketches and more. Highlights of the show include the fabulous Miss Piggy in a show-stopping musical extravaganza, a rocking musical jam by The Muppets’ legendary house band Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem, with legendary drummer Animal. Here’s what Kermit had to say:

“We’re thrilled to bring this first time ever live performance to all our fans in the UK,” says Kermit, “There’ll be music, comedy, incredible surprises, plus total and complete chaos. In other words: It’s the Muppets! Yaaaay!

Miss Piggy added:

“I can’t wait to be there to entertain, astonish, dazzle and otherwise gobsmack all moi’s fabulous fans! Wear socks, sweetie, cause I’m gonna knock ‘em off.  I will amaze everyone with this first-ever live performance….and, of course, for the official renaming of ‘The MOI 2’ arena.”

Tickets go on general sale Wednesday 28th February at 9am and are available at theo2.co.uk or by calling 0844 856 0202.

Plus the debut of all-new original chapters of those classic Muppet Show sketches – Pigs in Space, Veterinarian’s Hospital and Muppet Labs and many, many more extraordinary surprises in Europe for the first time ever. To celebrate this special weekend of Muppet fun, The O2 will be rolling out the green carpet for Muppet movies, street food, live music, best costume competitions and a whole host of celebrations for Piggy, Kermit and the gang.

With a cast of characters headlined by the inimitable, yet exasperating Miss Piggy, the hilarious Fozzie Bear, the inexplicable Great Gonzo (Who Dan was lucky enough to see at Michael Giacchino’s 50th birthday recently!) and the extremely-loud Animal, The Muppets remain as beloved and befuddling entertaining as ever. So, please stop reading this — because if you’re here then you probably already know all this stuff – and join the aforementioned entertainers – plus Sam Eagle, The Swedish Chef, Pepé the King Prawn, Lew Zealand, Rowlf and so many more! It’s time to get things started. This is what we call The Muppets Take The O2.

Tickets go on general sale Wednesday 28th February at 9am and are available at theo2.co.uk or by calling 0844 856 0202.
