Here’s the password to get tickets to Nightmare Before Christmas Live with Danny Elfman.
“What’s this? What’s this?”
Fans of Danny Elfman and Jack Skellington know that there is a very special annual performance that takes place each year in California to celebrate the Halloween season in spooky style.
Nightmare Before Christmas is happening again in 2021 at the Banc of California Stadium stage on Friday, October 29.
Nightmare Before Christmas Live
Danny Elfman not only composed the stellar soundtrack to The Nightmare Before Christmas (and yes, so many other Tim Burton films), but he is also the singing voice of Jack Skellington in the films.
With the pipes and the music, a Disney Concert series was bound to happen. The first Nightmare Before Christmas Live performance happened at the Hollywood Bowl in 2015, then again in 2016, and 2018. This year, the venue has changed, but the scary vibes remain the same.
“Jack is back!” Elfman said in a press release. “I was so sorry to have missed last Halloween. (We all know why). But- I’m not skipping this year. Jack wants to get back on stage. I can’t wait to see you all.”
If you haven’t made it out to California to witness this retelling of the Tim Burton masterpiece, check out the plethora of YouTube videos that capture the whole performance, or pivotal moments.
One of our favorite moments is Danny Elfman kidnapping Sandy Claws with Paul Reubens, Catherine O’Hara:
