Cypress Hill to play with orchestra nearly 30 years after The Simpsons predicted it

Must read

Cypress Hill have made a 28-year-old gag from The Simpsons into a reality.

The American rap act appeared in a 1996 episode in which the drug-influenced group bizarrely requested to play with the London Symphony Orchestra.

Decades after the joke first aired, Cypress Hill have announced that they will be playing with the London Symphony Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall.

The prophetic joke in The Simpsons is one of a number of gags from the series which have become reality.

Cypress Hill star B-Real explained that the joke had in fact given the band the ambition, telling the BBC:  “It’s been something that we’ve talked about for many years since The Simpsons episode first aired.”

“So it’s very special for us. And it’s coming off the heels of our 30th anniversary for our Black Sunday album.”
