Freddy Snakeskin and Jed The Fish with Oingo Boingo

Watch Oingo Boingo’s 1987 Irvine Halloween Concerts

August 28, 2018

One of the best things about Halloween-time in the late 80s and early 90s was the annual Oingo Boingo Dia de los Muertos concerts held at Irvine Meadows.

While Danny Elfman has recently brought back an annual "The Nightmare Before Christmas" Halloween celebration at the Hollywood Bowl, nothing will compare to some of these incredible shows from the 80s.

Check out footage from 2 Irvine Meadows shows in 1987 below, plus their awesome set lists.
