These live shows will feature Elfman backed by an all-star rock band, and the same orchestra, and choir that he played with during his set at Coachella 2022 and Halloween weekend shows at the Hollywood Bowl, as they perform songs from Oingo Boingo; his solo career, including his 2021 album Big Mess; as well as a plethora of his film scores and television themes from Alice in Wonderland, Batman, Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Simpsons, and more. The audience will be transported into Elfman’s vision and magical world; with his haunting compositions brought to life on stage and enhanced by visuals on the big screen.
This limited run of Southern California concerts will provide full-length versions of his past highly acclaimed performances. Band members include Stu Brooks on bass (Dub Trio, Lady Gaga), Nili Brosh on guitar (Dethklok), Robin Finck on guitar (Nine Inch Nails, Guns N’ Roses), and Ilan Rubin on drums (Nine Inch Nails, Angels & Airwaves).
“That he pulled it off as a cohesive concert experience made the show wildly successful, and not just because he’s refilling his rock reservoir after an epic drought. It almost felt like Christmas, with or without the boxed-up snakes.” – Variety
“Elfman takes the audience beyond the pure entertainment value of the visual spectacle. He offers a sense of integrity and authenticity, clearly following his own muse and musical instinct.” – mxdwn Music
