With a standalone show to close out the weekend, this year's finale will see master of the horror soundtrack John Carpenter perform in the Colston Hall for what will be a concert of widescreen proportions. Having already sold-out shows in London and Manchester, this show will be the first opportunity UK fans will have to see the realisation of his enduring soundtrack material and new compositions in the live arena.
