Python stars add five more shows

The Monty Python team have added a further five dates to their comeback - after five other shows sold out in less than an hour.

The comics, who last week announced they were making a live return after three decades, will give the extra performances at the same venue, London's O2 Arena.

They will take place on July 15, 16, 18, 19 and 20. More than 70,000 tickets for the other shows went in 55 minutes when they went on sale on Monday.

Python star John Cleese said: "The response to our planned reunion has been very, very silly. But, we're all touched that so many fans still want to see such old people perform. So we're delighted to be adding more dates to the run at the O2."

The new tickets will be sold on Friday from 10am.
