Jim Henson’s world famous Muppets are on their way to the UK. David Tennant, Peter Davison and Kylie Minogue have been confirmed as special guests for The Muppets Live shows.
First formed in 1955, Jim Henson’s Muppets will perform the first live shows in Europe next week at London’s O2 on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th July and they promise to bring a unique mix of musical performances, sketches and celebrity guests.
Among the special guests will be David Tennant and Peter Davison, who played the Tenth and Fifth Doctors, and the very lovely Kylie Minogue, who famously played Astrid Peth in the Doctor Who 2007 Christmas Special, Voyage of the Damned.
Also due to appear with The Muppets Live are comedians Adam Hills and Kevin Bishop, actor Charles Dance and middle-aged popsters, Steps.
Discussing the live shows, Kermit the Frog said, “We’re thrilled and thankful to all these stars for joining us for The Muppets Take The O2. I’m sure the audience will have the time of their lives. And I promise that no celebrities will be harmed in the making of this once-in-a-lifetime event, so long as they don’t get between Miss Piggy and the audience.”
Miss Piggy is quoted as saying, “Moi’s fabulous performance alone is worth coming to The Muppets Take The O2, but I am delighted that so many of my famous friends are coming to join us on stage, to entertain my fans and, of course, to give moi a standing ovation.”
