Following the unprecedented and well-received news of an appearance at the Coachella Music Festival, lauded film composer Hans Zimmer has announced further live appearances.
Zimmer will embark on a world tour starting in July. Find the North American portion of the dates here.
Although The Dark Knight composer isn’t new to touring – he took over 20 musicians out on the road in Europe – his North American appearances are somewhat of an anomaly in terms of big summer concerts, which are usually reserved for pop/rap/rock artists.
Zimmer told Billboard:
“I wanted to break the image of the film composer – the guy with the large black grand piano and the orchestra and the conductor – so I figured out a different way of doing it. I wanted to take away all the barriers between the audience and musicians and what I really wanted to do was celebrate the musicians.”
As one of the most prolific composers of our time, Zimmer has worked on the music of over 150 films since the 1980s, including The Lion King, the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Gladiator, Inception, The Last Emperor, Rain Man and Interstellar.
