August 13, 1997: Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s animated sitcom debuted on Comedy Central and introduced the world to the insanity, profanity, and controversy-courting spectacle of the titular Colorado town. To commemorate the show’s remarkable 25-year run, Parker and Stone organised a raucous two-night musical event, which you can stream with our guide below on how to watch South Park: The 25th Anniversary Concert online from anywhere.
Taking place on August 9th and 10th, Red Rocks Amphitheatre featured high-spirited performances of your favorite South Park songs. Who could forget Chef’s “Chocolate Salty Balls” and the festively faecal “Mr Hankey The Christmas Poo?" There were songs from Team America: World Police and Broadway musical The Book of Mormon too - just a few of Parker and Stone’s other lucrative musical ventures.
There were three different renditions of the iconic theme song, penned and performed by Primus, and a barnstorming guitar battle between that band's bassist and Mickey Melchiondo of Ween. They exchanged guitar riffs onstage alongside Trey and Parker, in addition to a choir whose classically trained mouths belted out some signature vulgar lyrics.
Now the event's being broadcast worldwide, be prepared to sing loudly along in celebration of 25 years of South Park. The below guide explains how to watch South Park: The 25th Anniversary Concert online from wherever you are.
