Hans Zimmer Unveils First-Ever Tour

Hans Zimmer Unveils First-Ever Tour
Iconic German composer Hans Zimmer is responsible for the scores behind some of Hollywood's biggest and best loved films. Now, after decades of work providing award-winning musical accompaniment to works like The Lion King, Gladiator and The Dark Knight trilogy, Zimmer has announced plans to embark on his first-ever live tour.
 
Unfortunately North American fans won't be given the chance to see the show on their home continent, but the trek will take Zimmer through Europe with stops across the UK, Germany, France and Poland. The string of shows kicks off in London on April 6 and will come to a close in Sofia, Bulgaria, on May 16.
 
"Performing a tour like this is something that I have always wanted to do, and I am thrilled that the time has finally come," Zimmer said in a press release. "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."
 
Zimmer has previously collaborated with high-profile artists like Pharrell and Johnny Marr, inviting both artists on stage during a pair of 2014 live performances at London's Hammersmith Apollo.
