Hans Zimmer, Hollywood’s most in demand and innovative film music composer whose 100 film scores have made over $24 billion at the box office, has added two additional shows to his European Summer Tour in the UK.
Hans, whose music can currently be heard in BBC 1’s ‘Planet Earth II’ and the Netflix phenomenon ‘The Crown’ will be joined onstage at The SSE Hydro Glasgow by his 15 piece studio band, along with an orchestra and choir bringing the total number of musicians on stage to over 60.
‘Hans Zimmer Live On Tour’ will be a multi-layered experience for concertgoers and a must-see concert event, featuring career-spanning music from Zimmer's multi-decade career.
Hans’s first ever tour ‘Hans Zimmer On Tour’ in 2016 kicked off with a sold-out two night run at London’s Wembley Arena before embarking on a 33-city run that included shows in major European cities including, Paris, Berlin, Munich, Prague, Geneva, Dublin and Vienna to name just a few.
The ‘Hans Zimmer Live On Tour’ concerts will be in two parts: the first being some of Zimmer’s classic movie scores including GLADIATOR, THE LION KING and PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN and more and the second featuring re-imagined versions of some classic scores such as THE DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY and INCEPTION with special guests from the rock and pop world.
“Performing a concert series like this is something that I have always wanted to do, and I am thrilled to kick off these west coast dates, visit Australia and return to Europe where we had so much fun playing in the summer.” said Zimmer. “I am very excited to get some of my very talented friends together and give our audiences an experience unlike any concert they have ever been to before.”
