As many of you may already know, John Carpenter is hitting the road to promote his album, Lost Themes II, which dropped back in April. Carpenter released a music video for one of the tracks - "Distant Dream" - and announced a leg of tour dates for this summer and fall, concluding on, you guessed it, Halloween night. Read all about that here.
On May 20th, Carpenter and crew, including his son Cody on keyboard, performed at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles. Among the songs on their set list was Carpenter's iconic theme to Halloween. Check it out below, along with a list of upcoming tour dates.
