Hank Azaria To Host Live Show At Hollywood Bowl Celebrating 'The Simpsons' 25th Anniversary
In celebration of The Simpsons’ 25th anniversary, castmember Hank Azaria will host a special live show at the Hollywood Bowl September 12, 13 and 14.
The Simpsons Take The Bowl
The Simpsons Take the Bowl will feature three special shows, each welcoming special guests and members of the cast, as well as guest-stars and more. Azaria has voiced countless characters on the animated comedy since it’s debut in 1989, but is perhaps most recognized for his roles Apu Nahasapeemapetilon and Moe Szyslak. Joining him will be Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson, and Yeardley Smith, who voices Lisa Simpson. Guest stars expected to appear include Jon Lovitz, Beverly D’Angelo and Weird Al Yankovic. Attendees will also get to hear from series creator Matt Groening as part of the behind-the-scenes portion of the show.
For the show, the Hollywood Bowl will reportedly be completely decorated to resemble Springfield, and live performances of classic scenes and brand new clips, unreleased until now, will be accompanied with live music by the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. Finally, according to the Hollywood Bowl website, each performance will end with fireworks.
More guests are expected to be announced as The Simpsons Take the Bowl approaches, and tickets are now available for purchase.
In addition to The Simpsons Take the Bowl, the comedy will be celebrating its 25 years with an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con on July 26, and from August 21 to September 1, FXX will air all 25 seasons in order.
