Billie Eilish has been added on to play the role of Sally alongside Danny Elfman’s Jack Skellington at the live-to-film concert experience celebrating Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas later this month.
Following a three-year hiatus the Halloween event takes place on October 29th, with a family-friendly early show on October 31st at Los Angeles’ Banc of California Stadium, where Eilish will perform the stop-motion animated film’s “Sally’s Song”.
Elfman said in a statement,
I’m absolutely thrilled to have Billie joining up with the nightmare crew! This will be a real treat (not a trick)!
“Weird Al” Yankovic will also be on hand to play the role of Lock, while actor Ken Page will reprise his singing role of Oogie Boogie from the beloved 1993 film. Conductor John Mauceri will lead a full orchestra for the concerts, which features the artists involved singing alongside their big-screen counterparts in sync with the film.
