John Carpenter has announced a UK and European tour which will take place later this year.

The master of horror has lined up the dates in support of his latest album Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 (opens in new tab), which was released in October last year via Sacred Bones.

The tour comes ahead of the release of the next instalment in the Halloween movie series, which will hit the silver screen in October. 

Carpenter provides the soundtrack and also served as the executive producer on the film. It’s the first title that he’s been involved with in the series since 1982’s Halloween III.

Carpenter released a video for Christine last year (opens in new tab), which he described as “electronica for a killer car” and added: “Most of the soundtrack for Christine was 1950’s rock’n’roll, with a main title appearance of George Thorogood and the Destroyers’ Bad To The Bone. I filled in where necessary.”

Find a full list of his tour dates below, which also includes an appearance at the Palladium in Los Angeles on Halloween.
