Billie Eilish has been announced as a special guest star of the upcoming “The Nightmare Before Christmas Live Concert Experience.” The shows will take place on October 29 and October 31 at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles.

The 19-year-old Grammy winning recording artist will perform “Sally’s Song,” Billboard reports.

Eilish will be joined by Danny Elfman, who voiced all of the movie’s singing parts for Jack Skellington, and will reprise his role for the live production. Originally an exclusive one-night event, a second night was added on Halloween due to popular demand. Tickets for the first night have already sold out but there are still passes left for the second show. Prices start at $59.50.

In an interview with KTLA last month, Elfman revealed that the live production was set for last year, but the pandemic pushed it back. “It was a frustrating year for every live performer obviously, so I’m so excited to get back on stage,” he said. “This is the first time in two years I’ll be in front of an audience again.”

“Weird Al” Yankovic will play the role of Lock, and Ken Page is expected to reprise his role of Oogie Boogie. More special guests could be announced as the show draws nearer. Grammy-winning conductor John Mauceri will lead the score’s performance with a full orchestra.

The venue will be transformed into an interactive replica of the film’s Halloween Town and include a costume contest and trick-or-treating. (You might consider the film’s official Disney costumes, such as this “Nightmare Before Christmas” Glow in the Dark Half Suit for adults and comes with a handy on-off switch when you’re ready for the glowing to stop. For the toddlers, consider the Oogie Boogie Costume.)

If you’re unable to make it to the L.A. show, check out the “The Nightmare Before Christmas” concert at Atlanta’s Symphony Hall on October 29 and October 30. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster and Vivid Seating. Prices range from $50 to $90.

And if all else fails with your Halloween plans: You can always stream “The Nightmare Before Christmas” on Disney+.
