Python Reunion Last Night - I was there! by theabrahams@talk21.com on 1 December 2002 1:25am
 
Suprise Python reunion last night!

At the George Harrison Concert
together live on stage :
Michael Palin
Eric Idle
Terry Jones
Terry Gilliam
Neil Innes
Carole Cleveland.
Only Mr Cleese was missing.

We were row 9 at the front. Incredible.
Opening the 2nd half of the show Idle,Jones,Gilliam,Innes came on as waiters for the '69' song, complete
with bare bottoms at the end of the song. The crowd went wild.

Mr Palin came onto stage as his 'slimy' talk show character with some new dialouge. Very funny.

This led into the 'Lumberjack Song'.
More wild applause as the other Pythons & Carole came back on as Mounties The Pythons made the first line of mounties with some extra mounties at the back.

However - appeared to be a certain Hollywood actor Mr T. Hanks also crept in as Cleese replacement in the front row next to the Pythons and looked in his element as they brought the house down performing the sketch.

The Pythons live on stage 2002 was great. They appeared very comfortable together & obviously enjoyed themelves.

They returned for the encore together with the rest of the performers & all seemed very moved by the whole tribute to their dear friend & much loved & missed George Harrsion.

Eric was particularly red eyed, and Michael gave him a reassuring hug.
Michael also gave Ringo Starr a lovely greeting/hug as they left the stage at the end.

Along with the other acts - what a tribute! George would have been proud!
It was a very special occassion to bring about such a major Monty Pyhton reunion. I'll never forget it!
Thanks Michael & the guys!
Rest In Peace George!

I read about the concert on another list, but it's great to see someone here went!

Thank you for that touching mention of Eric and Michael. Sad, but sweet to know that George is missed and friends are there to comfort each other.

Was it Michael or Eric who was the Lumberjack at the show?

I hope they will air it here in New Zealand sometime. It sounds like something not to be missed. Thanks for telling us about it.

Anyone got pics?

Many ,Many Thanks theabrahams@talk21.com (gosh that's a mouthful :-} ) for taking the time to share the news with us; especially when so many of us couldn't make it.

Really nice to hear from someone who was there, :-} as it sounded like a wonderful tribute. Especially to get the Python team together again....pure magic! As for Mr T Hanks?? As a Lumberjack????????? (Words fail me!! :-} )

and im sure she's right.

AWESOME!!!!!!!!
I'm very envious!
George was the best, my favorite Beatle. Sounds like it was a touching tribute to a fine musician, Python fan and friend, husband and father.
Sigh. Makes me eyes well up a bit. A bit.
Thanks for sharing....
I'm sure George was smiling down upon the whole shebang.
