The Muppets REALLY want to duet with some particular Irish musicians
They also said they really want to "rock out" in the Emerald Isle.
A new Muppets series has just been released on Disney+ and two of its stars have opened up about how they would like to collaborate with some particular Irish musicians.
The new show is titled The Muppets Mayhem and follows a junior A&R executive (Lilly Singh) who must deal with the madness caused by the Muppet rock group Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. This is as the band comes face-to-face with the modern musical business while trying to record their first-ever platinum album.
Given the show's release, JOE had the pleasure of speaking to two members of the Electric Mayhem - bassist and backup singer Floyd Pepper and drummer Animal. We asked the pair if there were any places in the world where they would like to perform but have not yet.
Without missing a beat, Animal excitedly declared: "Ireland, Ireland. Let's go, let's go," leading Floyd to tell his bandmate: "No, not yet, Animal. We ain't got no world tour yet."
However, the bassist then added: "But if we did, we'd definitely love to visit Ireland, rock out there. There's so many places I want to visit - Dublin, Belfast, Cork."

Following on from this, JOE asked if there were any particular Irish musicians that they would love to perform a song with to which Floyd said:
"Oh absolutely, I've been waiting to rock out for a long time with U2. I think we'd really like to do that, U2. We'd really jive with Sinead O'Connor."
Meanwhile, Animal put forward Enya as an aspirational collaborator, to which Floyd added: "Right on, man. I'd collaborate with Enya anytime, any time of day, any time of the week."
All episodes of The Muppets Mayhem are available to watch on Disney+ now.
