You guys are in for a massive treat !
The London concert was magnificent, moving, thrilling.
Elfman sang from Nightmare Before Christmas...along with........... ah that's a surprise !
Elfman was nervous, but as he went on, he nailed it, and his joy and happiness was very evident that he had done it.. and the response he got was overwhelming.
He said it was THE highlight of his career and was very, very overjoyed & overwhelmed by the response.
Of course seeing................ a certain someone appear at the end just made the evening smile

Maybe I've got this wrong, because these official US dates have made me wonder, so apologies all-round if I have but I'm pretty sure I was told on Tuesday evening that there would be a show in LA. Pretty much from the horse's mouth.

Saw both the first two shows in the UK and they were awesome. You're in for a treat. It was SO hard not to tap the feet to that Mars Attacks! theme.

Infact I DID tap my feet. Lightly at the RAH, but a little more heavily in Leeds. Thank God for concrete floors!
