The surviving stars of Monty Python have extended their reunion after tickets sold out for the solo performance in a mere 43 1/2 seconds on Monday.

Tickets for the July 1, 2014 performances at London’s O2 went on sale at 10 a.m. and after realizing demand, dates for July 2 through 4 were added, the Guardian reports.

John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam will return to the stage together for the first time in 40 years. Member Graham Chapman died in 1989.

“There will be a little comedy, some pathos, music, and a tiny bit of ancient sex,” Idle described of the show.
