Roll out the green carpet because the Muppets are coming! This time they’re making a grand entrance in London with “The Muppets Take the O2,” their first full-length live show in Europe ever. Last year’s “The Muppets Take the Bowl” was one for the books, so we’re pretty pumped to see the Muppets spreading happiness across the globe. Here’s what a couple of our favorite characters have to say:
Kermit the Frog sounds pretty excited:
“We’ve wanted to do a show like this for a long time, and now—after finally getting all Miss Piggy’s luggage through customs—we have the chance to appear live at The O2 arena! … There’ll be music, comedy, incredible surprises, plus total and complete chaos. In other words: It’s the Muppets! Yaaaay!”
Miss Piggy adds:
“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.”
We bet Miss Piggy will knock our socks off in her musical extravaganza by the Muppets’ house band Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem, with the legendary Animal on the drums. There will also be brand new original chapters of classic The Muppet Show sketches, including “Pigs in Space,” “Veterinarian’s Hospital,” and “Muppet Labs,” just to name a few. And the Muppets won’t be alone—special celebrity guests are joining the spectacular with musical performances, sketches, and more!
Of course, Statler and Waldorf have to get in the last word.
“This is gonna be the ultimate ‘Don’t Miss It’ event …”
And Waldorf adds:
“Yeah, if you don’t go to it, you won’t miss it.”
And we’re definitely not going to miss it! Marking our calendars for July 13 and 14, 2018. The chaotic yet loveable cast—headlined by Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, The Great Gonzo, and Animal—includes entertainers like Sam Eagle, The Swedish Chef, Pepé the King Prawn, Lew Zealand, and Rowlf. There’s also going to be Muppet movies, street food, live music, costume competitions, and more with Kermit and friends—we could not be more excited!
