Jarrod Fairclough – Next week The Muppets are taking London’s O2 Arena, in a series of live shows similar to last year’s The Muppets Take The Hollywood Bowl. Up until now, no guest stars have been announced, but our own Kieran Moore took a stab in the dark at some potential names, and amazingly got 2 correct!
According to The Sun, the live shows will feature Kylie Minogue and the band Steps, as well as Doctor Who stars David Tennant and Peter Davison who will take part in a Pigs In Space sketch, presumably as the Doctors.
Even more exciting, young Jim Hawkins himself comedian Kevin Bishop, who starred in Muppet Treasure Island, will take part in the show, the first time he’s been with his old friends in over 20 years!
The shows are shaping up to be great, and in talking with David Rudman just a couple of weeks back, the performers are just as excited as we are. Our own Kieran Moore will be in attendance giving us a full run down, and we’ll endevour to get you some videos and photos as soon as we can after the event.
