After 27 years, the iconic Danny Elfman hit the Coachella stage and reminded fans why he’s one of the greatest to ever do it. Among the many talented artists that performed, composer, singer and songwriter Danny Elfman performed on Saturday after he released his first new solo album, Big Mess (which includes the eerie AI-generated music video for his single, “In Time”) in almost 40 years last year.
According to Stereogum, during his performance, Elfman played some of the songs off of his album, a lot of Oingo Boingo, his former band, songs and some of his iconic scores from over the years, which include his scores for The Simpsons, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and the 1989 Batman theme. The singer initially planned to perform these songs and scores during the 2020 edition of Coachella; however, the pandemic put a delay on his performance.
Elfman’s performance at Coachella certainly excited the crowd and Twitter users. Users showed their appreciation and excitement for Elfman’s performance with one user stating that even though he was sick at home, Elfman’s performance of his score for Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure and Batman made him feel “80% better.”
