Yes, it really does seem like a lot of our news this week is dominated by Tim Burton and Danny Elfman. But we’re right smack dab in the middle of Spooky Season! Of *course* it’s gonna be a little Halloween-y around here. Which brings us to the news that Danny Elfman’s live concert performances of “The Nightmare Before Christmas” making it’s near-annual return to the iconic Hollywood Bowl this year.
Announced this morning, the concert will happen over three nights next month- October 27th, 28th, and 29th. This is a special year for the Henry Selick-directed film, which celebrates it’s 30th anniversary. Expect to see guest performers, some of the original cast, and other surprises! (There’s even a costume contest!)
