Terry Jones has confirmed that he, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle and Terry Gilliam will get back together on the stage next year.

Terry Jones told the BBC:

We're getting together and putting on a show - it's real. I'm quite excited about it. I hope it makes us a lot of money. I hope to be able to pay off my mortgage!
