This year is set to be the biggest Halloween the UK and Ireland have ever seen, all thanks to Mr Halloween himself – John Carpenter.
For the first time ever, the legendary Film director, screenwriter, producer and (of course) composer is bringing his unmistakeable music over to the our side of the Atlantic.
This is a must see event for any Carpenter fan as John is joined by his son Cody Carpenter on synthesizer and his godson Daniel Davies on guitar (among others) to bring us live performances of his most memorable scores. They’ll also be performing a bunch of new tracks, including a taste of his most recent studio album ‘Lost Themes II’ (released via Sacred Bones Records).
Meet John Carpenter
And if witnessing this spectacle wasn’t enough, the event organisers are also offering a selection of VIP packages which include exclusive merchandise and even the chance to meet the man himself.
The obvious choice would be to see the show on Halloween, at the Troxy in London. But if you’ve missed out on those tickets, there’s still availability some of the other venues.
