John Carpenter Live

Simple Things 2016 Finale

Simple Things are proud to present legendary horror composer and director John Carpenter live at the Colston Hall for a breathtaking finale to the festival weekend. John Carpenter has been responsible for much of the horror genre’s most striking soundtrack work in movies he’s both directed and scored, such as Assault on Precinct 13, Halloween, The Fog, Escape from New York, Big Trouble in Little China, Prince of Darkness and They Live to name a few.

Carpenter will be performing a retrospective of his soundtrack work as well as original compositions taken from his Lost Themes albums accompanied by a full live band and spectacular visuals.

Following the instantaneous sell out of his tour dates in Manchester and London, this show presents a unique opportunity to experience Carpenter’s pioneering work in a live setting.

This show is a general admission show. The ticket types are standing in the stalls (available from Crack Magazine website) and reserved seating in the balcony (on sale via this page).
