John Carpenter

(Prog) Moviemaker John Carpenter has extended his first-ever UK tour, which takes place in April. In addition to his previously-announced appearances in October, the director will play in Brighton, Edinburgh and Bristol, while adding a date in Dublin, a second date in London, and moving to a larger venue in Manchester.

He'll deliver a set featuring pieces taken from the soundtracks he's composed for his movies, including Halloween, Escape From New York, Assault On Precinct 13, The Fog and more.

The shows follow the launch of his album Lost Themes II in April, recorded with a band that includes son Cody and godson Daniel Davies. Carpenter recently told the Dallas Observer he was enjoying his "second act" as a musician, saying of his latest pieces: "These are like soundtrack samplers - little passages of soundtracks for movies that don't exist."
