Composer Danny Elfman and Director Tim Burton have worked together on Burton’s films for over 25 years and now they plan to collaborate on a live performance.
Next October, Elfman will sing live on stage for the first time in 18 years (remember kids, he was the front man for Oingo Boingo) accompanied by the BBC Concert Orchestra. Images from Burton’s films will provide backdrop for the event.
According to the Telegraph, Elfman is especially looking forward to singing parts of The Nightmare Before Christmas.
“The idea of performing some of Jack Skellington's songs from The Nightmare Before Christmas live for the very first time is immensely exciting," he said.
If you happen to be visiting Londontown next October, check out Danny Elfman's Music from the Films of Tim Burton on October 7 at the Royal Albert Hall. I am booking my plane ticket now.
