Grammy, Golden Globe and Academy Award-winning composer Hans Zimmer announced New Zealand and Australia arena shows today for his new concert experience ‘Hans Zimmer Revealed.’
Hot on the heels of his recently announced European tour dates, Zimmer will perform five shows in May with shows at Auckland’s Vector Arena, Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena, Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena, the Brisbane Entertainment Centre and Perth Arena.
‘Hans Zimmer Revealed’ is a multi-layered experience for concertgoers and a must-see concert event, featuring career-spanning music from Zimmer's multi-decade career. The tour kicked off earlier this year with a sold-out two night run at London’s Wembley Arenabefore embarking on a 33-city run that featured shows in major European cities including London, Paris, Munich, Prague, Geneva, Dublin and Vienna. The tour received rave reviews in every city.
The concert 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 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 visit Australia and New Zealand 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.”
