(Newser) – Monty Python's reunion gig sold out in less than a minute—and so did each of four added performances, according to Eric Idle, who's directing the shows at London's O2 Arena. "This pretty much took us by surprise," Idle tweeted. Performances will run from July 1 through July 5, the Los Angeles Times reports. Will American fans get a show of their own? There could "possibly" be an encore in New York, John Cleese said, and Idle has also noted that a DVD is in the cards. The show will combine new and old Python routines.
