Billie Eilish cast in ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ live-to-film concert experience

Event features Paul Reubens, Danny Elfman, “Weird Al” Yankovic & Ken Page

Billie Eilish is among the cast of the live-to-film concert experience of Disney’s timeless holiday classic Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. The event takes place Halloween weekend at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles.

Eilish will sing “Sally’s Song” with “Weird Al” Yankovic as Shock on both nights. Danny Elfman will reprise his famed original singing voice role of Jack Skellington for both nights, along with Ken Page in his original iconic singing role of Oogie Boogie, and Paul Ruebens as Lock.

Tickets for the first show on Friday, October 29th are sold out and tickets for Sunday, October 31st with a family-friendly start time of 6:30 pm are available for purchase via Ticketmaster, with ticket prices ranging from $39.50-$179.50. In addition to the performance, each night will feature trick-or-treating across the venue and a stadium wide, crowd-voted costume contest.

As previously announced, acclaimed conductor John Mauceri will conduct a full orchestra performing the film’s classic score and songs live, accompanying Elfman – who composed the original film’s music, lyrics and score – singing live in-sync with the film.

After three long years, this year’s shows mark the welcome return of one of Los Angeles’ pre-eminent and classic live Halloween experiences for all ages.

A stadium wide costume contest will take place before the show begins, with every attendee given the chance to be selected by roaming judges and brought up on stage for a crowd-voted crowning – Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas inspired costumes are highly encouraged! There will also be no shortage of trick-or-treating stations throughout the venue, ensuring nobody is left empty-handed from Halloween’s most revered tradition.

As the first ever film music concert event at the stadium, the show will also be uniquely tailored to its new venue to provide a new experience even for those who have seen previous iterations of the show.

The concert event will be transformed into a spectacular and unique visual experience to fully immerse the audience in Halloween Town. The concert is produced by Laura Engel & Richard Kraft of Kraft-Engel Management and Alison Ahart Williams, Tim Fox & Georgina Ryder of AMP Worldwide in association with Disney Concerts.

Banc Of California Stadium has a multitude of transportation options at its doorstep. The stadium has ample parking at and around the stadium, ride sharing options include a designated enhanced Uber pick-up and drop-off location and for those looking to get their blood flowing on Halloween weekend, there are also permanent bicycle parking spaces around the stadium and Expo Park. In addition to those options, fans of this event (hopefully dressed in their best Halloween costumes) can easily hop aboard the Metro Expo Line which drops you off at the Expo Park/USC Station which is just steps away from Banc of California Stadium.

The health and safety of fans remain a top priority by the organizers of the event. In accordance with current orders from The LA County Department of Public Health, all attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination or provide a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to the event. All attendees will also be required to wear masks at all times except when actively eating or drinking.
