The Muppets Announce Hollywood Bowl Concert Series

first_imgLast summer, Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem, the band from The Muppets, made their live music festival debut at Outside Lands. The band played a short set that included The Mowgli’s “San Francisco,” Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zero’s “Home,” The Band’s “Ophelia,” and a version of The Beatles’ “With A Little Help From My Friends” with the Oakland Tabernacle Choir. With short breaks for the puppeteers, the short but sweet set was an incredible dose of musical fun for the music festival attendees. The Muppets have now announced their first-ever full length concert series, which will take place at the Hollywood Bowl in California this September.The event is officially called “The Muppets Take the Bowl,” a nod to the classic 1984 film, and will feature Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, The Great Gonzo, Animal, Sam Eagle, Pepé the King Prawn and the entire Muppet cast – some of who have not been seen in over 35 years – along with Thomas Wilkins, the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, and special surprise celebrity guests. Overflowing with music, laughter, parody, dancing, classic and new sketches, a fireworks finale – and who knows what else?“Highlights of the show include the fabulous Miss Piggy in a show-stopping musical performance; Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem, with legendary drummer Animal rocking the Bowl; debuts of all-new original chapters of Pigs in Space, Veterinarian’s Hospital and Muppet Labs; and many more extraordinary surprises, including a spectacular fireworks finale, kicked-off by Crazy Harry,” according to a press statement.Check out two announcement videos for the show below, and head here for more information.
