The 2009 MPH show which will host Top Gear Live is just around the corner and in true Top Gear style, Messrs Clarkson, Hammond and May have begun the press launch in about the only way they know how. The three presenters hopped aboard a black liveried Tank and drove along the Tower Bridge in London to mark the Capital as the debut location for the show.

The funny men will do 10 separate live performances over the show which lasts a total of 8 days and is spread over 2 locations: Earl's Court in London and the Birmingham NEC. It gives more than 95,000 fans the chance to see the boys in action for 75 minutes and will also feature guest appearances from the STIG.

Tickets for the show are on sale now and can be purchased from mphshow.co.uk with prices ranging from £38 to £105.
