Three Bonzos and a Piano Bring Mayhem to The Met

The Met welcomes Three Bonzos and a Piano on Friday 4 March at 8pm.

Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band fans will be delighted to learn that Roger Ruskin Spear, Rodney Slater and Sam Spoons have teamed up with super-pianist Dave Glasson to create more fun, music and subversive diversion in the spirit of the ageless band.

The Bonzos have appeared with members of Monty Python, The Beatles, Eric Clapton, The Kinks and The Who as well as having a Top 5 hit with Urban Spaceman.

The musical missing link between The Goons and Monty Python, they featured as the house band on Do Not Adjust Your Set, set in the 1960s, with then Bonzo songwriter/pianist Niel Innes. The show wasa fore-runner of Monty Python, with Michael Palin, Eric Idle and Terry Jones, as well as a young David Jason. Comedians Stephen Fry, Adrian Edmondson, Eddie Izzard, Chris Morris and Bill Bailey have all named the Bonzos as a formative influence.

“…panto for adults – and wonderfully enjoyable” Plymouth Herald

Robots, smoke, unsuitable medical technology, ancient theatrical props, the kitchen sink and the audience (you get to join-in!) all combine to re-create the atmosphere of those formative years of the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band at such legendary venues as The Tiger’s Head, Catford. Addictive stuff. You have been warned!

Tickets are £15. To book or for more information please call our ticket office on 0161 761 2216 or go to the web site at www.themet.biz
