The hit series, South Park, will be celebrating their 25th anniversary at Red Rocks amphitheater, playing all the viral and vulgar hits from the show. The concert, originally supposed to be one night only, added a second night due to popular demand, but tickets sold out relatively quick.
If you weren’t able to snag tickets for the Red Rocks concert then you’re in luck as the show is going to be filmed on the 10th and air on Comedy Central on the 13th, which is the official anniversary date of South’s Park first airing back in 1997. The following day, you can stream it on Paramount+.
A pop-up exhibit will also be touring the country, with stops in Colorado this week. “South Park: The 25th Anniversary Experience” will be at Red Rocks Trading Post on August 9th and 10th before making a stop at McGregor Square in Denver on the 12th and 13th, showing off memorabilia and stored-away scripts and images from the show that haven’t been shown to the public.
“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,” Matt Stone and Trey Parker said in a press release. Plus, we’re happy to say that we’ll get to see more of South Park until 2027.
In other shorter but still related news, what’s going on with Casa Bonita? It’s been a year since the South Park creators bought the building, which would save the infamous Mexican eatery and Denver-destination from completely shutting down after the pandemic. In the past several months, there’s been a ton of construction as the building gets a full renovation that has taken the South Park creators by surprise.
In an article with The Denver Post, Parker and Stone said, “Have you ever seen ‘Kitchen Nightmares’? It’s the very, very worst one of those you could possibly ever imagine,” said Parker about the conditions of the building. “What we thought would be, ‘Oh this will be cool. We can buy this and open it and it’ll be around again,’ turned into ‘Oh this is going to be what we have to put all our money into and hope that it works.’”
The only thing we have to go off is the fact that they have assured the public Casa Bonita will open–one day.
