Danny Elfman’s The Nightmare Before Christmas Concert Returning for Halloween

Danny Elfman will return to the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles this Halloween season to perform songs from Tim Burton’s beloved film The Nightmare Before Christmas, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary.

The concerts will take place October 27th through 29th and see Elfman stepping back into the role of Jack Skellington to perform the music he wrote for the 1993 Disney classic. Special guests include Catherine O’Hara, who voiced Sally in the original film. She’ll reprise the character during the October 29th performance.

Other guests include Halsey, Fred Armisen, Riki Lindhome, and Ken Page. Conductor John Mauceri will once again lead a full orchestra and choir.

Tickets can be purchased via StubHub, where orders are 100% guaranteed through StubHub’s FanProtect program. StubHub is a secondary market ticketing platform, and prices may be higher or lower than face value, depending on demand.

“It’s impossible to believe it has been thirty years since Tim Burton made our strange little musical,” Elfman said in a statement. “What a tremendous thrill it is to perform it live in concert again at the iconic Hollywood Bowl.”

Concertgoers who arrive at the venue early can check out pre-show activities including a costume contest, trick-or-treating stations, and photo opportunities.

Last year, Phoebe Bridgers sang the part of Sally during a performance in London, following in the footsteps of Billie Eilish from 2021.

In July, it was reported by Rolling Stone that Danny Elfman had agreed to pay a $830,000 settlement to a woman who accused him of sexual harassment in 2018. According to the magazine’s report, Elman failed to make two payments of $42,500 in 2019 and 2021 and is now being sued for breach of contract.
