‘You can expect a little comedy, a lot of pathos, a lot of music and a tiny bit of ancient sex… and maybe some cross dressing’, say promoters of Monty Python’s final live performance.

Monty Python rightfully hold a place amongst the world’s finest ever comedians, influencing a generation and revolutionising comedy on their way to greatness. There was huge demand for tickets for the first live performances at the O2 with tickets selling out in under a minute.

MontyPython haven’t performed live since 1980 at the Hollywood Bowl, so when the five surviving Python members announced that the circus was set to fly again tickets for their first show sold out in 43.5 seconds.

Recently it was announced that the final night of their London performances will be the Pythons’ last ever live performance together.

The historic last night of the Monty Python Live (mostly) show from London’s 02 concert arena is to be broadcast in cinemas across Australia, including Palace Byron Bay.

Australian fans have the opportunity to join in on one of the most anticipated live events ever captured in HD. John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin will once again take to the O2 stage and perform some of Monty Python’s greatest hits with modern, topical, Pythonesque twists – and material that’s never been performed live, plus the odd new joke!

See this great show tonight, Wednesday August 6 at 8 pm, and Saturday August 9 at 11.30 am at the Palace Byron Bay.

Tickets $22-$25 now available at Palace box office or online at www.palacecinemas.com.au.
