Red Rocks amphitheater in Colorado will have a concert to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the series South Park. The Comedy Central animated sitcom was created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, who met at the University of Colorado. It will be a two-night event with musical performances from Primus and Ween. The event will air on Comedy Central and Paramount+. The concert celebrating the 25th anniversary of South Park will include music from the sitcom. It’s at Red Rocks, where a friend of Trey Parker and Matt Stone got Les Claypool to re-record the series theme song lyrics. Comedy Central thought the original version was too slow. The first episode of the animated sitcom South Park premiered on August 13, 1997, on Comedy Central. The series takes place in South Park, Colorado. It follows four friends Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick.
The Success Story of Trey Parker and Matt Stone Starts in Colorado
Matt Stone and Trey Parker met in class at the University of Colorado at Boulder. They formed a bond over their shared sense of humor and acted in several short films together. They produced a video greeting card for Brian Graden, who then sent it out to Hollywood executives. Matt Stone and Trey Parker first pitched the idea of turning the video greeting card, called Jesus vs. Frosty, to Fox, but they turned it down. Comedy Central picked it up and turned it into an animated sitcom. Now a concert will take place at the creators’ origin for the 25th anniversary of South Park. The long-running Comedy Central animated sitcom has won five Emmy Awards and a Peabody Award. It also has an Academy Award nomination for its film South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.
