It's a fan-favourite
The puppets were originally created by Jim Henson in 1955. The beloved Muppets troupe will make three appearances at London’s The O2 over July 13 and 14, and announced a slew of special guests to help them out.
Along with Minogue and Tennant, the likes of comedian Kevin Bishop, actor Charles Dance, fifth Doctor Who Peter Davison, comedian Adam Hills, and pop group Steps will also featured in the shows.
Last night, for the final show, The Muppets performed a cover of Bowie’s 1972 track ‘Suffragette City’. Check out fan footage from the performance below.
The Muppets reportedly also covered Bohemian Rhapsody and gave a shout-out to England’s World Cup performance. A notable collaboration was between Kermit and Kylie Minogue who also performed The Muppets classic take on “Mah Nà Mah Nà”.
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.”
The Muppets’ Miss Piggy and Kermit spoke to NME earlier this year ahead of the live shows. Asked if they had a favourite rapper, Kermit said: “I hear Stormzy’s quite good.”
