Come on down to South Park and meet some friends of mine. And by friends, we mean Primus and Ween.

The two bands are set to perform at an upcoming concert celebrating the 25th anniversary of South Park, which first introduced its foul-mouthed self to the world in August 1997. The performance, which will also feature series creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, takes place August 10 at Colorado’s Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre.

“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,” Parker and Stone say. “Until now.”

Both Primus and Ween have long been part of the South Park universe. Primus, of course, performs the show’s theme song, while Ween guested on the season two episode “Chef Aid.”

Throughout the years, South Park has featured and lampooned many a musical artist. Who could forget when Korn led a “Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery” in season three, or when The Cure‘s Robert Smith helped defeat Mecha-Barbra Streisand in season one?
