Prior to the shows, Kermit The Frog said in a press release: “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.”
