What’s This?! Danny Elfman Tours UK

danny elfman music from the films of tim burton

Tim Burton fans are in for a treat without the requisite trick from Lock, Shock and Barrel. After the London Royal Albert Hall show sold out, it has been announced that Danny Elfman will tour ‘Music from the Films of Tim Burton’ in Leeds, Glasgow and Birmingham.

Cue geek explosions from Tim Burton fans across the UK, myself included. As the press release puts it, this ‘brand new orchestra event features Danny Elfman’s famous film scores brought to life on stage by the BBC Concert Orchestra under the baton of John Mauceri, and enhanced by visuals on the big screen of Tim Burton’s original film sketches, drawings and story boards.’ Featuring music from some of Burton’s biggest films – that’s you, ‘Edward Scissorhands’, ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’, ‘Beetlejuice’ and ‘Batman’ – these special shows will feature four-time Oscar nominee Elfman playing with the BBC Concert Orchestra and a 45-piece choir. Heck, he’ll even be singing the part of Jack Skellington – WHAT’S THIS?!

If you couldn’t tell, I’m a wee bit excited. Here’s hoping the faithful Elfman elves get tickets. Until then, I’m gonna be dancing about under an ice sculpture looking forward to October 10th…
