Cypress Hill To Bring ‘Simpsons’ Joke To Life By Performing With London Symphony Orchestra

Cypress Hill have announced they will perform a show with the London Symphony Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall on July 10th.

The upcoming concert makes a 1996 joke on “The Simpsons” an actual real life thing. In the “Homerpalooza” episode of “The Simpsons” broadcast on May 19, 1996, the group accidentally book a gig with the London Symphony Orchestra, triggering rumors of the band teaming up with the famous orchestra.

Cypress Hill had performed three shows with a symphony orchestra in the U.S. last year. Troy Miller will be conducting unique orchestral arrangements of the band’s most iconic songs, including “Insane in the Brain” and “I Wanna Get High” at the Royal Albert Mall this year.

“We are thrilled to be performing with the London Symphony Orchestra in such a prestigious venue as the Royal Albert Hall,” Cypress Hill said. “It’s a dream come true, a collaboration only The Simpsons could have predicted.”

Kathryn McDowell, the LSO’s Managing Director said, “After years of social media teasing it, many fans may have started to believe it would only be a pipedream – but the LSO is delighted to finally be joining Cypress Hill on stage and in person, and look forward to creating an unforgettable musical moment! Many thanks to the creators of The Simpsons for the idea and to AEG Artistic and PolyArts for making it all happen.”
