The two concerts, which are entitled ‘Hans Zimmer Revealed’, will be held at London’s Eventim Hammersmith Apollo, and will feature Zimmer alongside a band of classical, pop and electronic musicians.
Zimmer himself commented: “Performing a concert series like this is something that I have always wanted to do, and I am thrilled that that time has finally come.”
“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.”
The concerts will be presented by legendary promoter Harvey Goldsmith, who commented: “Hans is a genius of our time, having thrilled millions of cinema goers with his amazing film scores. At last, Hans will reveal a collection of his finest scores to a live audience here in London.”
The first half of each concert will feature renditions of classic Zimmer scores like Gladiator and The Lion King, while the second half will consist of reworked versions of other scores, featuring guest musicians from the pop and rock world (Zimmer has, notably, a close working relationship with Pharrell Williams).
