Special guests include "Simpsons" creator Matt Groening, actors Beverly D'Angelo and Jon Lovitz, and entertainer "Weird Al" Yankovic.
Rolling Stone said the live "Simpsons" Hollywood Bowl show will also feature selected clips from the 25 years the series has run and never-before-seen clips of the show.
"Groening . . . will also perform, giving the audience anecdotes about working on the series as guests like Weird Al drift on and off stage," The Verge reported
. "The live show sounds more like a revival for a long-canceled series than a party for one still on the air. But, then again, 'The Simpsons' has long claimed its place in television history. Maybe it's not too early to celebrate."
Fans expressed their excitement about the event on Twitter.
