Comedy Central’s renowned franchise South Park will mark a quarter century since its series premiere (August 13, 1997) this summer with South Park: The 25th Anniversary Concert at the iconic Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre on Wednesday, August 10.
With South Park creators Trey Parker & Matt Stone and headline bands Primus and Ween, the Denver concert will feature fan-favorite tunes from the show’s catalog.
“We’re so excited to go home and play at Red Rocks, a place that’s been known for hosting the most legendary Artists and Musicians. Until now,” said Stone and Parker.
“Thanks to the brilliant minds of Matt and Trey, for the past 25 years, multiple generations of fans have grown up enchanted by the outlandishly funny and subversive world of ‘South Park,'” said Chris McCarthy, President and CEO of Paramount Media Networks and MTV Entertainment Studios. “A concert at the iconic Red Rocks to mark this milestone is the perfect way to celebrate, thank the fans and pay tribute to the quintessential artists, such as Primus and Ween, and the many others featured throughout the show’s run.”
Co-creators Parker and Stone are executive producers of South Park (SouthPark.CC.com), along with Anne Garefino and Frank C. Agnone II. Eric Stough, Adrien Beard, Bruce Howell and Vernon Chatman are producers. Christopher Brion is the creative director of South Park Digital Studios.
MTV Entertainment Studios’ expansive deal with Parker and Stone includes extending South Park on Comedy Central through 2027 and taking cable’s longest-running scripted series through an unprecedented 30th season. In addition to the series extension, the new deal includes 14 original made-for-streaming events exclusively for Paramount+, including last year’s South Park: Post COVID and South Park: Post COVID: The Return of COVID. The series has earned five Emmy Awards, to date, and a George Foster Peabody Award.
