This won’t be your parents’ or your kids’ Halloween. Miami's popular House of Horror Haunted Carnival will host a performance by red hot duo The Chainsmokers as part of its annual Halloween celebration. On Wednesday (Oct. 5), though, organizers announced that the gig -- initially scheduled for Oct. 6 -- will actually take place a few days after the holiday. "With an abundance of caution, we are postponing @TheChainsmokers concert to Fri., Nov. 4th," they tweeted, noting that they are putting off the show due to potential damage from Hurricane Matthew.


Giving Halloween a touch of dance is totally appropriate for the Miami-based attraction, which last year  hosted a show by Calvin Harris. The Chainsmokers' performance comes in what’s been their most successful year; their single “Closer,” featuring Halsey is currently at No. 1 on the Hot 100.

Also performing October 6 are Daya and Zara Larsson. House of Horror, named one of USA Today’s top 10 Halloween events, has been hosting scariness for 16 years.
