Comedy pairing The Mighty Boosh have announced two music-themed London shows – their first UK dates in over four years.
Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt will take to the stage as The Mighty Boosh Band at London’s Soho Theatre on September 29-30, playing half-hour sets of songs from their cult BBC surrealist sitcom, which ran from 2004-07. The performances will see them warm up for their appearance at Festival Supreme in Santa Monica, California next month, hosted by Jack Black’s spoof metal outfit Tenacious D. Tickets for the events have already sold out.
Although the Mighty Boosh never officially split, the pair have not worked together since 2009’s Boosh Live: Future Sailors tour. These live dates and the announcement of a new exhibition in collaboration with photographer Dave Brown, set to open at London’s Proud Gallery on October 24, have raised speculation that a fourth series of their BBC sitcom may be in development.
Since their last live appearance together, Barratt and Fielding have pursued solo projects, with Barratt concentrating on theatre while Fielding put on exhibitions of his artwork and created a sketch show for E4.
