All five Monty Python shows sell out in 55 minutes

The Monty Python stars are to perform together on stage next year for the first time since the Hollywood Bowl in 1980. Tickets for the event were gone in less then an hour.

After the Pythons sold out their first show in 43.5 seconds this morning, tickets for four further shows had gone on sale.

Python star Eric Idle said: "It's totally amazing. I don't think we realised quite how much Python is loved round the world. We look forward to paying off Terry Jones' mortgage soon."

Fans snapped up the tickets - thought to be for around 72,000 seats - in the space of just 55 minutes after phone lines opened this morning.
