‘It’s my pleasure to announce that special guest star @billieeilish will be joining the nightmare gang to sing Sally for our upcoming “Nightmare Before Christmas” shows at the Banc of California Stadium,’ Elfman wrote on Twitter.

The Nightmare Before Christmas live shows began in 2015, but the last performance was three years ago. Plans for a 2020 return were scuppered by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Performances will be held on October 29 and 31 at the Banc of California stadium in Los Angeles.
