The veteran comedy troupe - John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones - announced they were getting back together last week.
A spokesman for the Pythons said the 1 July event sold out in 43.5 seconds this morning and tickets for four further shows had immediately gone on sale.
The concerts at the venue in Greenwich, southeast London, come more than 30 years after their last stage performance.
Speaking at last week's press conference, they said they would include some of their most famous routines including the dead parrot sketch.
Their last major live show was at the Hollywood Bowl in 1982.

For 20 years the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ Award has rewarded entrepreneurs who are on the forefront of wealth and job creation, to help build a better working world for the people, their clients and our communities. The Entrepreneur Of The Year recognizes the spirit of entrepreneurialism that propels the economy in more than 50 countries.
This year, we’re extremely proud of Jean-Francoys Brousseau, our President, and Constance Raymond, our VP, who won the Entrepreneur Of The Year in the Technology and Communications category. This award represents their combined vision and innovation that has helped Outbox become a world-leader in high volume ticket sales for venues and shows over an easy-to-use technology platform, which brought ticketing to another level.
As Constance said in her acceptance speech, “There is no “I” in the word team, and there is a significant “U” in entrepreneur. I would like to take a moment to acknowledge and thank all of U."
Congratulations to Jean Francoys and Constance, from all of us at Outbox, for allowing us all to outthink, outperform, and outshine.

You’re welcome AEG. No problem O2 Arena. It’s our pleasure Cirque de Soleil. No worries Evenko.
Now that the Pollstar 2012 rankings are out, do you know what these top promoters, venues and artists from all over the world have in common? They all have Outbox technology to thank when it comes to helping them sell their tickets.
Outbox offers the best ticket-selling tool in the world. With signature interactive seat maps, 3D customized venue plans, one page checkout – Outbox is key when it comes to helping their clients reach out, stand out and sell out. Quite simply, no one is better at making it easier and more seamless for the public to get the seats of their choice. And, as of February 1st 2013, the Staples Center in Los Angeles will benefit from the Outbox advantage.
Recent rankings prove that Outbox is a common underlying factor, or silent partner, in most of last year’s entertainment success stories. With AEG, The O2 Arena, Cirque de Soleil, The Bell Centre and Evenko as clients, it becomes clear that Outbox is the stroke behind their splash.
When it comes to integrated, specialized solutions, it’s clear that Outbox believes great clients need excellent solutions. Webshopper has been labeled the “best ticket-ordering interface ever”. Eventshopper is the on-line consumer purchasing power-tool for the busiest shows in some of the largest venues in the world. Outbox also provides non-transferrable, paperless ticketing, as requested for example, on AXS.com by The Lumineers at the Ogden, to ensure fans profited from the show, not scalpers. More commonplace at large venues, this ticket-selling technology transposed effortlessly and flawlessly to a smaller venue and is ready for a repeat performance.
Leave it to the producers, performers and the promoters to find and promote the talent, but clearly Outbox is a solid supplier of the brainpower behind the ticket sales. Outbox is happy to help its clients shine in the spotlight of the recent Pollstar rankings, and is a proud supporter of the music, the arts and, of course, the sales. Destined to stay out of the limelight, Outbox is perhaps both a global leader and a best-kept secret. So next time you sit back and enjoy the roar of the crowd, just remember Outbox technology could be responsible for filling every seat in the house.
