The Muppets live show heading to London

First full-length live show arrives in Europe for the first time.

The Muppets will be arriving in London this summer – with the brand hosting its first ever full-length live show in Europe.

Based on the hit 1980s variety TV show, characters including Kermit, Miss Piggy and Statler & Waldorf will be coming to The O2 on July 13 and 14 in The Muppets Take London – Live at The O2.

This follows on from a successful trio of sell-out shows at the Hollywood Bowl last year, and marks the first time The Muppets have ever performed their full live extravaganza outside of the US.

The characters will be joined by special celebrity guests for musical performances and sketches, while there will also be the debut of all-new original chapters of classic Muppet Show sketches such as Pigs in Space and Muppet Labs among others.

In addition, The O2 will also be rolling out the green carpet for Muppet movies, street food, live music, best costume competitions and a host of other celebrations.

Kermit had this to say about the dates: “We’re thrilled to bring this first time ever live performance to all our fans in the UK.

“There’ll be music, comedy, incredible surprises, plus total and complete chaos. In other words: It’s the Muppets! Yaaaay! We’ve wanted to do a show like this for a long time, and now – after finally getting all Miss Piggy’s luggage through customs – we have the chance to appear live at The O2 arena.”

Miss Piggy added: “I can’t wait to be there to entertain, astonish, dazzle and otherwise gobsmack all moi’s fabulous fans! Wear socks, sweetie, cause I’m gonna knock ‘em off. I will amaze everyone with this first-ever live performance… and, of course, for the official renaming of ‘The MOI 2’ arena.”
