Rolling Stones lead Mick Jagger poked fun at the Monty Python troupe ahead of their string of performances at the O2 arena in London this week. They're a bunch of "wrinkly old men trying to relive their youth and make a load of money," Jagger remarks in the promo.
In a video posted on the Monty Python YouTube channel, Jagger is asked by his assistant if he wants tickets for the show. The singer, busy watching the World Cup, declines, "Who wants to see that again?"
Python member Eric Idle is directing the shows, and performing alongside Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, John Cleese and Terry Jones. Graham Chapman passed away in 1989. The live shows are intended to be their last.
The initial tickets for "Monty Python Live (mostly)" sold out within minutes when they went on sale last November and additional tickets are currently on sale.
