According to the synopsis of the episode, "When Springfield is burned to the ground, the Simpsons beg Mr. Burns to fund its rebuilding. Burns agrees — with one condition: he gets to put on a variety show at the Springfield Bowl."
After the destruction of Springfield, Mr. Burns is the only one left with enough wealth to fund the rebuilding. Since he belongs to a rich family, Burns has all the money to help every family of the town, which has been affected by the fire in one way or the other.
Hence, Homer approaches Burns and requests him to donate some money for the reconstruction. Much to Homer's surprise, Burns plainly refuses to help and tells him that his money is not for everyone.
A disappointed Homer goes back, but Burns is left in deep thoughts, recalling his childhood days when he used to be a helpful person. However, some bullies mock him in front of other students, leaving him devastated and he slowly develops into a selfish, arrogant person whose only ambition is to earn more money than his ancestors.
Thinking of all the past moments, Burns finally makes up his mind and accepts Homer's request to rebuild the town and take care of all the residents. However, he agrees to it on one condition — he will be allowed to put on a variety show at the Springfield Bowl, and it seems that the townspeople don't have any issues against it.
