All of you know that I am a huge fan of The Simpsons. And when I heard about this orchestra performance at the Hollywood Bowl, I knew I had to get there.
I had never been to the bowl before but it was amazing to see all the different little cardboard displays out and about. I was just in my little happy world. The show was an hour away but I spent most of my time looking around at things, collecting buttons and eating this huge donut.
But I think what really made it nice for me was the fact that it was a trip down memory lane, hearing all the songs that I love from the show. And the performances were amazing, including the celebrities that showed up.
Take a look at all the people that came out.
Thomas Wilkins (conductor), Hank Azaria (co-host), Nancy Cartwright (co-host), Yeardley Smith (co-host), Beverly D’Angelo, Jon Lovitz, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, Conan O’Brien, Vaud and the Villains, Kipp Lennon and Matt Groening.
I finally got to see Weird Al! He was amazing. But I think just the storytelling was a great part of the show. It was just like a little place for all of us fans can celebrate how wonderful this show was.
Here is one of the videos I took. Tell me that this wasn’t special.
Check out the rest of my videos. Right now, I am on cloud 9. Yay!!!
