Honoring Burton with the Glow Award, the museum’s event kicked off the arrival of an art exhibit featuring work celebrating Burton’s connection to Vegas.

While the exhibit is not slated to open until Tuesday, those in attendance got a peek during the Boneyard Ball.

Attendees wore everything from formalwear to costumes portraying cult classics such as The Nightmare Before Christmas, Beetlejuice, Alice In Wonderland, Edward Scissorhands and more.

If rubbing elbows with Burton and dining on Jack Skellington lollipops still wasn’t enough for party-goers, the Killers took the stage to perform hits such as “Mr. Brightside” and “When You Were Young.”

After accepting his award, Tim Burton introduced the band saying “I love every song that they do. They’re beautiful, they’re my favorite band.”

As frontman Brandon Flowers mentions, Burton helped the Killers film two of their music videos. “Bones” was the first in 2006 followed by “Here with Me” in 2012. The latter starred Winona Ryder of Burton’s Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands as well as Stranger Things.

You can check out some footage of the event below.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal hit up the event, which you can check out in the player below.

More on Tim Burton

The Nightmare Before Christmas is, as usual, making its rounds in the news this spooky season. It has cerealshoes and coffee, and we may soon be able to add live-action remake to that list.

According to Moviehole, a source that has given the site credible and reliable information in the past tipped them that Disney wants “to do something with Nightmare Before Christmas – probably a sequel but live-action possible.”

This information was available back in February. Now, sources close to another site We Got This Covered Now, who, are the same ones who told us an Aladdin sequel was in development before it was later confirmed – have informed the world that the project is still in the works and is definitely happening.

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
