John Carpenter is a master of horror and sci-fi cinema with films like Halloween, The Thing, and Starman standing out in his decades-long career. The director is lesser known in his preferred role as a touring rock star these days. Carpenter recently released Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 and is taking the new recordings of old compositions on the road. The 69-year-old has more than a few iconic film scores under his belt including the eerie minimalist piano melodies of Halloween. Carpenter brings his son, grandson and the rhythm section of Tenacious D onstage for live performances, and will likely deliver a spine-tingling post-Halloween evening of frightful sounds all the same.
