Let’s Hope New Material Stands Up to Old When Monty Python Reunites
Like the Police Reunion years back, this is going to be enormously successful. As Stewart Copeland told me a few years ago, keeping the brand “pristine” by not touring is going to mean the demand to see the Monty Python gang onstage will be epic. Write it down, and buy your tickets early if you can.
One interesting side note is that they will be doing their old standby routines (like “Dead Parrot” — see video below), but also adding in some new material. If they want to avoid the fate of rock stars playing songs from their “new album,” they should either: a) Skip this, or b) make sure those routines are good. B would be better.
