ThxSeville, The Bait, Ambrose Welcomes Nyah, Chimera Myth, Beach Fight, Ambrose Dies.Can we stop? I agree with the other guy more in his points, but it's clear that this is gonna keep going nowhere if you're gonna be so overly defensive about something that you claim is merely subjective.But here we are, calling dog-humping, Decepticon testicles, and mommy-on-pot-brownies "challenging the viewer."<br>======================<br><br><br>Why do Bay naysayers pretend that Bay only directs TF movies? It's very interesting...... Pretty much all complaints against Bay are connected to the TF movies.<br><br>Newsflash: Bay was a proven and very successful action filmmaker wayyyyyyyyyyyyy before TF1. <br><br>So no, "challenging the viewer" is not about Transformers. You chose to focus on these movies. Not me. I was actually reffering to Bay movies like The Island and especially Pain and Gain. <br><br>But I guess you like to talk only about Transformers.....Good for you. But that's not how a discussion works. <br><br><br>===================<br>Instead of accepting that your love of Bay is nothing more than a opinion, just as my claim that he misses the point of what makes action movies fun is, you turn into an overly-defensive nut, desperately quoting every opinion piece under the sun to pretend your opinion is some statistically-backed fact. I've seen you do this every time someone talks shit about Bay around here. It's psychotic.<br>===================<br><br><br>So let me get this straight: trying to be as objective as possible, in a non-threating way, quoting people who actually know what they're talking about and certainly not treating my opinion as fact, makes me......psychotic? <br><br>Wow! Just wow!<br><br>Next time, I'll just act like a complete jerk, insulting everyone and everything. For you, that is apparently the normal behavior.<br><br><br>======<br>Bad movies make money. Everyone knows that, and everyone knows that's not proof of quality.<br>=======<br><br>Reviews, RT scores, and crappy film blog "think pieces" are also not proof of quality. Also, a "bad" movie to you is the greatest movie for the guy walking next to you on the street. As Kevin Smith said: "Every movie is someone's favorite movie". <br><br>Let's try to keep that in mind.<br><br><br>============<br>That's not just a domestic bomb, that's a bomb altogether.<br>============<br><br>Really?<br><br>Then what do you have to say about Pacific Rim 1. I present to you.......the pure numbers:<br><br>Budget: $200 million. And that doesn't include the marketing cost.<br>Worldwide gross: $411,002,906<br><br>So that flick, according to you, turned a profit.......but TLK - budget of also $200 million and with a worldwide gross of $605 million..........is a bomb?<br><br>Wow! Just.....wow!Yeah lol back then only Harold was confirmed.
Can you tell me a names of cues, that was been on Klaus website?Formality indeed. Complicated ! lol<br><br>You can bet Blake Neely didn't need anyone to "write" those 10 seconds !! lolI always found these credits to be a bit confusing. Klaus Badelt is credited on almost every cue, even when his themes don't appear and another additional composer is credited as well. I thought maybe it was just a formality that Zimmer and Badelt were credited everywhere (I mean, how much could they be involved on a cue like "Welcome to the Caribbean"?), but then "No real ship" and "Sword Fight Pt. 2" have no Badelt for some reason. Does someone know a bit more about this?well the composer confirmed he is working on it to be released very soon<br>"It's funny tho......people always complain how Hollywood plays it safe and how movies don't take chances..........but when a movie with tonal shifts that challenge the viewer and offer something bold shows up, people bitch and complain."<br><br>I didn't think it was possible for a Bay fan of all people to be this insufferably pretentious.<br><br>I thought that was more Snyder fanboy territory.<br><br>But here we are, calling dog-humping, Decepticon testicles, and mommy-on-pot-brownies "challenging the viewer."<br><br>Kudos, man.  Kudos.<br><br>You can hide behind however many fallacies you want.  If "Not to me" and "You do you" didn't give it away early on in this thread, I DIDN'T try to treat my opinions as fact.<br><br>But that doesn't mean I'm going to add a little "IMO" at the end of every goddamn sentence just to coddle you. <br><br>On the flip-side, consistently making appeals to authority and popularity, "B-b-but Spielberg said!", "B-b-but the Forbes poll said!" don't make you objective.<br><br>Y'know, it's funny.  When I listed off better blockbuster examples, you could've very easily just argued against them on the level of the films themselves, and everything would've been fine.<br><br>Sure, you would've just claimed you can't see the action at night sooner, which is rich when you praise the film series that puts the subjects of its action scenes OUT OF FOCUS every other shot, but hey, that's just honest opinions versus honest opinions.<br><br>But using two belated half-assed sequels from different, less talented directors that lost most of the appeal of the first movies, as some sorta litmus test for how well-liked the first movies were, is the biggest bunch of bullshit I've ever heard.  That's not objectivity, that's not even confusing correlation with causation, that's saying 1+2=4.<br><br>That's the real joke here.  Instead of accepting that your love of Bay is nothing more than a opinion, just as my claim that he misses the point of what makes action movies fun is, you turn into an overly-defensive nut, desperately quoting every opinion piece under the sun to pretend your opinion is some statistically-backed fact.  I've seen you do this every time someone talks shit about Bay around here.  It's psychotic.<br><br>Bad movies make money.  Everyone knows that, and everyone knows that's not proof of quality.  But if that's the kinda road you wanna go down, I guess movies like Avatar, The Force Awakens, or all the Avengers movies, are "objectively" better movies in every conceivable way than anything Bay has made in his entire career.  I mean, CLEARLY those films must have a bolder style and push more boundaries.<br><br>Why else would more people watch and rewatch them, right?<br><br>Reasonable causation is for those goshdarn geek journos.<br><br>And by the way, The Last Knight lost money.  Period.  Almost 100M according to Paramount themselves.<br><br>That's not just a domestic bomb, that's a bomb altogether.<br><br>Have a nice day.
Siding with the guy that lied through his teeth to feign objectivity seems like a bad call.<br>==================<br><br>Kinda ironic, coming from you....but I'll take it as a compliment. Thank you! <br><br>And yes, he sides with me because what I say is common sense. For whatever reason, you have these strong negative feelings toward Bay films and those feelings blind you to some pretty obvious truths. <br><br>Have to say tho - for a 'hater' you sure know A LOT about him, his style and his movies. <br><br>Just admit it - you are a huge Bay fan but you just want to score some points with the snobbish internet crowd. <br><br><br><br>============<br>In any case, modern Bay and Snyder don't deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Fury Road.<br>============<br><br>Oh, you're one of THOSE people......"Fury Roaaaaaaaaad is DA BEST FILM EVAAAAAAAA".<br><br>Let me guess: you also think that Nolan is the greatest director/person of all time. On par with Jesus himself. <br><br><br><br>==========<br>What DOES matter is scripts with razor focus, sharp pacing, witty and/or charming humor (if it wants humor, that is), and characters likable enough to carry us through the narrative.<br>==========<br><br>Which is what Transformers 1 is. <br><br>Which is why the movie connected with audiences. It was - at its heart - a story about a boy and his car. Even the most jaded critics enjoyed that aspect.<br><br><br>=============<br>And again, the likes of Pacific Rim, or 300, or the first Pirates of the Caribbean, or the first Kingsmen, or John Wick, or most Guy Ritchie films, or the better fourth of superhero films, illustrate that Bay and Snyder have no excuse.<br>=============<br><br>Excuse? For what?<br><br>My friend, you do realize that Bay in particular is one of the most powerful and successful filmmakers of all time, right? He is the second highest-grossing director of all time (domestically), only behind Spielberg. You can dismiss box office success all you want but you don't get to where Bay is if you're not good at your job. <br><br>Snyder is nowhere near Bay, in terms of success and influence. Personally, I don't care much about him. <br><br><br>P.S. Guy Ritchie (and Edgar Wright) are huge Bay fans. Ask yourself why. <br><br><br>===============<br>They just aren't very good filmmakers on the whole<br>===============<br><br>Your opinion.<br><br>I disagree.Bay walks the lines between being self-serious and comical, but his films aren't well=written enough to serve the former, or witty enough to serve the latter, and the end-result is droll and annoying.<br>====================<br><br>You sure you're not a "writer" for one of those ridiculous geek sites like Collider, Screen Rant or Slash Film? Because you sound a lot like one of those "beloved" writers. <br><br>Anyway......Yes, Bay's movies always walk that line but whether that works or not is........Yes! a matter of opinion. For me, Pain and Gain is one of the best modern satires while for you it is - I'm guessing - "droll and annoying".<br><br>It's funny tho......people always complain how Hollywood plays it safe and how movies don't take chances..........but when a movie with tonal shifts that challenge the viewer and offer something bold shows up, people bitch and complain. <br><br>Some of you folks are indeed very hard to please. <br><br><br>===============<br>The first POTC earns it. The Bad Boys 2 doesn't. Infinity War earns it. TF 1/2/3/4/5 doesn't.<br>==============<br><br>Okay, now that statement is the best joke of the year! Thank you for the good laugh! Really! Oh, and I've definitely argued with you before, my friend. You are clearly one of those ten Bay haters from the IMDb forums who claim to hate everything the man does, yet they have seen EVERYTHING he had done. Why is that, I wonder?<br><br><br>===========<br>Fitting, as Synder and Bay are cut from a very similar cloth. Difference is, unless we're talking Man of Steel, I'd sooner rely on Snyder for consistently good action sequences<br>===========<br><br>Well, I would trust Spielberg on this. Because it was Spielberg who said, and I quote: "Michael (Bay) is one of the greatest action directors. He has the best eye in Hollywood." Spielberg works with a lot of directors. But he never said anything like that about any other director. So clearly he means what he says about Bay. And....you know......unlike most people, Speilberg actually knows a thing or two about filmmaking. <br><br><br>================<br>300 didn't try to start a franchise. It was a one-off adaptation of a graphic novel in the same vein as Sin City, and was successful. They tried to make a cash-grab sequel almost a decade later, without Snyder, and it failed. That's hardly the first film's fault.<br>================<br><br>It is a clear proof that people weren't that excited to visit this world again. And mind you, that happened with the first sequel! Talk about a one-time thing, huh?<br><br>At the same time, Bay made FOUR Transformers movies - with different casts - before there were any signs of audience fatigue. <br><br>That speaks for itself.<br><br>===========<br>Pacific Rim suffered from lackluster marketing, and yet still managed to turn a profit and attract a strong following.<br>==========<br><br>Excuses, excuses, excuses.....So you can display all the excuses in the world for Pac Rim but when it comes to Transformers, you don't accept anything. <br><br>Double standard much?<br><br>P.S. That "strong following" is on the internet. The same following that was supposed to make Scott Pillgrim a huge hit. Everyone knows that internet hype is not real-world hype. I know very well the type of people who act as if Pac Rim is the best thing since sliced bread. Total geeks who are angry that Transformers is much more popular and much more successful than Del Toro's "let's shoot all the robot fights in pitch black so audiences can't see shit" movie.  <br><br>Also, let's not pretend that Pac Rim is a universally beloved film. You know very well that there are A LOT of detractors as well. That's what you get when people can't tell what's going on during the movie because you shot it all at night. Just like that Godzilla movie. <br><br><br>============<br>Versus something like Transformers, which has piggybacked on an established IP, relentless marketing campaigns and tie-ins, and a fairly consistent release schedule. And even then, recycling the same bullshit eventually took its toll.<br>============<br><br><br>Wrong.<br><br>Do you read Forbes? You should. Because it's a place where objective people write. It ain't a stupid militant film geek site like Ain't it Cool News or Screen Rant.<br><br>Forbes published multiple articles explaining in great detail why the Transformers movies were successful EXACTLY because they were directed by Bay. Whether you like it or not, my friend, Bay is a brand. He is an auteur. There were multiple polls before the first two Transformers movies and Bay being the director was one of the main reasons for people to watch the movies. <br><br>But I guess you missed all of that, huh?<br><br>How convenient.<br><br><br>==============<br>Friendly reminder that AoE also relied on China (more pathetically then even Pacific Rim did) to compensate for diminishing domestic returns. To say nothing of TLK outright bombing.<br>==============<br><br>First: according to ACTUAL real data, the only TF movie that was saved by China is.......Bumblebee! Yeah, you better believe it. Go to Deadline and Forbes and read it for yourself.<br><br>Second: TLK bombed domestically, yes. <br>But not internationally. No one with actual knowledge of the situation refers to that movie as an international "bomb". Besides, there were 4 super successful TF movies before TLK. So Bay got nothing to prove. He already created one of the biggfest film franchises in history. <br><br>How many directors can say that?<br><br><br><br>==================<br>I know you like debunking Bay naysayers with "facts and logic," but it helps to not be grossly disingenuous while doing it<br>==================<br><br><br>Goes both ways, my friend. But unlike most naysayers, I don't treat my own personal opinions as facts. And if I'm being "disingenuous" then I don't even know what to say about some Bay haters who refuse to accept even the most obvious facts and truths.nopeYou realize there is a very easy and free method to get the music from that site, dont you?Random thought but this got me thinking about Zanelli's history with fantasy.<br><br>Whatever happened to his score for Delgo?  I know it's been accused of being super derivative of his other works anyways but still, it's weird to see a RCP score just drop off the face of the Earth like that.
There's just something really charming about seeing a prototype for a famous future theme showing up in an old score.<br><br>Or in PotC's case, SCORES.The only ones I've seen properly confirmed are the cues Badelt had listed on his website. The issue with everything else is that there's certain themes that's been associated with certain people, but aren't credited for every appearance. Not to mention that I've never really seen much official credits elsewhere, so I take any that I've seen with a grain of salt.This comment was made before that was properly confirmed, so he was likely going to do it solo at the time.I thought Hans was collaborating with Faltermayer For Top Gun 2From both ASCAP and GEMA

Toronto Concert Fan reply Replies: 0 || 2017-08-02 21:13:59
Namaste Hans!
What an incredible 1st half of the concert last night in Toronto!

I have high sensitivities to sound, lights, smells, and a few other elements.
Just would like to let you know that even though I brought my dark sunglasses for the bit of strobe lights I was expecting, it didn't help too much when some of the numbers in the 2nd half seemed to be bombarded with strobe lights!
It actually didn't leave a good feel, by the end of the concert. I realize it is not all about me, but as we were leaving, my son, daughter and I heard some people in the elevator on the way out, that they were also affected by the overwhelming strobe lights! Lady said she got a headache from it! My son wasn't feeling well, but he came because he loves your music so much, as my daughter.

Anyway Sir, your music is so great, it does not need strobe lights,they actually take away some of the high quality of your music because they are so distracting.

GREAT DRUMMER!!!! OMG!!!! What an amazing energy he has!
Your talks in between the music was GREAT to listen to, and deeply inspiring!

The one piece that brought me to tears was the theme from DeVinci Code, and that was just the violin playing in the beginning, simple and moving!

THANK YOU HANS ZIMMER for your MUSIC, CREATIVITY, and SHARING with the WORLD!!!!

Good Blessings to you and your loved ones, and all the other artists and crew behind the scenes, who make the in front the scenes happen!

I have been a fan for years and your concert in Columbia, MD was one of the best shows I have been to in a very long time.
Your orchestra sounded amazing. I dont know how you keep nailing it year after year.
Thank you.

Atlanta Concert - Tuesday, July 18th, 2017.

The concert was good last night, but not great. Re: there was a preponderance of bass that "washed out" the sound of all the instruments and detracted from the overall music. Wish I could have told him. The bass was so powerful that my wife's chest actually hurt afterward! Absolutely wonderful music and as a musician, I can really appreciate the talent, but the bass needs to be taken down several notches. Don't know if he'll ever see this. Actually listening to the Da Vinci Code score right now.

Dear Hanz,

I was at the Canandaigua concert last night, and I just wanted to say that your music reached across the world and touched me. I can't believe that a persona such as yourself would appear just an hour away from my tiny home town in rural upstate New York.

It's been my dream to write music for film for a long time, and I'm on my way to Malibu for college to study music. I've been afraid of failure in the impossible music industry, but your powerful concert reminded me that if I don't at least give music a try, I will live an empty life. Just like you said, a musician's life isn't a bad life. The challenge is incredible and the rewards sometimes slim, but in the end, it's a life with meaning, a life with something to believe in. Your music renewed that belief in me, for better or for worse.

I just wanted to let you know that, and thank you for being humble enough to come all the way out to the middle of nowhere just to bring us a little hope in the world.

Dear Hans,

I'm french and drove 400 km to be in Nîmes on june the 24th and I've never felt so lucky than this day.
To see and to hear your musicians and you playing was a dream. I fell in love with your music when I was about 15 and had tears in my eyes when hearing the Rain Man theme.
You're a great composer M. Zimmer and a great man. Respectful to your musicians and audience.

I hope you'll be back in France soon, not just for me but for all those who couldn't see you until then and, even if I have more kilometers to drive, I'll do them easily to have the chance to see you again on stage.

Affectionately.

Live on Tour - Antwerpen 2017

Dear Hans

the experiment whom I have just lived this day was fabulous, you and your orchestra did nothing but climb levels throughout this extraordinary concert and I hope that it will climb of them others during the rest of your round and your life.

During all the concert, I did nothing but admire your work which is stunning like your production and your fastener towards your orchestra and your public .

Pirate of the Caribbean was brilliant especially the solos of Tina Guo, I had even shivers of them on my chair like for Gladiator, Inception, The Dark knight Small channels without forgetting celebrates it King lion where one was pleased immense to hear the voice of Mr Lebo M (Lebohang Morake) at the time of the beginning of the music.

I hope to re-examine you one day on the Belgian territory for your next round while hoping that there is one of them.

I wish you a good wind for your future productions, it was a pleasure of listening to you and to see you in truth even if I were far from the scene and it will be always a pleasure of listening to your musics.

Sincere greetings still a large whole thank you for what you do and courage for the continuation.

Durant tout le concert, je n'ai fait qu'admirer votre travail qui est époustouflant ainsi que votre mise en sc&#232;ne et votre attache envers votre orchestre et votre public

Live Tour Sound Levels - Glasgow edition

Leaving this comment here as not sure where else one would feedback on such things but...

I was at the show in Glasgow last night (18/06/2017) and sadly had a similar experience to quite a few of the posters below. The sound levels were really, really off and made the melody inaudible for most of the concert. For the first half of the concert it seemed there was some effort to counteract this (i.e. the pieces would find their level about half way through each one) but the second half of the concert was just a wall of sound. For example, The Wonder Woman Theme ("Is She With You?") was utterly unrecognizable except that Hans Zimmer made reference to it once the piece ended. It made me sad that all the build, nuance and explosive musical climax that HZ and his team are known for were lost in the cacophony.
I left feeling really angry and to be honest angry for the performers most of all. You can see that they play their socks off, are ridiculously talented and love what they do, but they were greatly misrepresented by the poor levels last night.

To be clear, I saw this concert last year in another city and it was amazing. When the music is allowed to shine it is truly wonderful. So my issue was with the poor sound quality rather than the music selection itself. I find it quite shocking that for a tour that has been going for well over a year, with a set running order, talented musicians and crew, and with the technology that we now have, that the sound could be such a disaster.

That being said, if you get a chance go see this tour. The lighting and staging are done well. Hans' anecdotes are charming and the musicians are a joy to watch. When the sound levels are on point the music is powerful and moving, and if you are fan of his body of work you really need to hear Hans Zimmer's compositions live.

Thanks you for cheering me up in London on the 16th June. My Dad had a near fatal heart attack at the age of 85. He's only just alive but insisted I came to the concert at the SSE. Although a sad time you helped me get through the day and night. Gladiator was done so beautifully that night I balled my eyes out throughout the performance.

Your're an inspiration and one the greats.

I saw Hidden Figures this weekend and as a former adolescent NASA geek from the 60's I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and the stories. There were only two places in the film where the music grabbed my attention. Those times were after John Glenn's lift-off as he climbed into orbit and when he had his ticker tape parade. Can you tell me, is that a snippet of Carmen Ohio I am hearing?" If so, it is a great tribute to Sen. Glenn and his love for the Buckeye State. If not, chalk it up to failing hearing and an vivid imagination.

I caught Carmen, Ohio too. Awesome!


MissouriBuckeye2017-02-01 21:01:21
Having been a member of the OSU Marching Band, I assure you that you did hear the first 5-6 notes of "Carmen, Ohio" (the Ohio State alma mater) during the launch sequence.

Glenn himself went to Muskingum College, about 50 miles away from Ohio State. I don't know what their alma meter is.

Dear Mr Zimmer,

I would also like to join the comments about the concert in Budapest. I traveled with my mother from Novi Sad, Serbia and we bought the best tickets available, since we are both devoted fans. My mother started following Your work since she was a teen from the early 80s and she introduced me to movie scores for the first time when I was a child. Ever since, we listened to every new score with great admiration and excitement and we were hoping to have the opportunity to hear the live performance.

Finally, we bought the tickets for Budapest, but instead of the long anticipated evening filled with divine beauty of music, we were devastated during the second part of the concert.

The first part was truly what You are known for and what people want and expect to hear. I must say that the theme from the Gladiator moved me deeply and it represented the high-peak of the evening. The themes from The Lion King and the DaVinci Code were simply perfect and incredibly emotional as well. I would especially like to praise the solo sections of Ms Tina and Mr Lebo.

From all the magnificent and beautiful themes from King Arthur (which I consider inevitable to perform), Pearl Harbor, Rush, Spirit the Stallion of the Cimarron, The Last of the Samurai and Tears of the Sun and many many others, the setlist of the second part of the concert was a painful disappointment.

Instead of blissful peace it brought nothing but aggression and destruction with that much emphasis on the electric guitar. It is the type of music that goes quite well with the superhero movies, nevertheless we expected more themes with the symphonic orchestra instead of all that electronics. When I came home, the first thing I did was to listen to the good old themes I mentioned above, just to erase the memory of the evening before.

However, I would go to the concert again without a second thought if the setlist would be modified and performed with more acoustic instruments and piano to represent the very best of Your work, which is how You initially won the audience.

All of the above was said and written in hope that You will take these remarks and the comments of Your longterm fans in consideration.

Yours faithfully,
Sara

Oh ... I'm supposed to write in English ... this will be nothing :-) Sorry guys ... I want to talk about my emotions here ... I can not bend in the language ...

Oh... Ich soll in englisch schreiben... das wird nichts :-) Sorry Jungs... ich möchte hier über meine Emotionen Reden... da kann ich mich nicht in der Sprache Verbiegen...

Meine Freundin schenkte mir zum 50. Geburtstag Karten für Hans Zimmer in Leipzig... wir selber wohnen bei Köln... und wollten eigentlich 2016 ins Konzert nach Köln... leider hat es sich nicht ergeben und meine Freundin hat gemerkt, dass ich deswegen etwas traurig war... also dann nun 2017 die große Überraschung zum Geburtstag -> Karten für Hans Zimmer in Leipzig. Und ich kenne Leipzig. Eine tolle Stadt mit tollen Menschen... also riesen Freude... hat sie super gemacht.

Und was waren wir begeistert. Ich kann die negativen Kritiken hier nicht verstehen. Scheinen ja viele super Livemusiker dabei zu sein, die schon Konzerte ohne Ende gegeben haben, um sich hier als Fachmänner austauschen zu können... Ich sag dann gerne -> selber besser machen :-)

Aber natürlich kann auch ich Meckern ;-) Aber nicht wirklich... Das Konzert war großartig und wir waren drei Stunden lang Begeistert... und meine Freundin hat für Filmmusik nichts übrig... nun ist sie Hans Zimmer Fan... Wir waren von der ersten bis zur letzten Minuten wie elektrisiert... was bestimmt auch an der Bühnenshow gelegen hat... mit diesen fantastischen Musikern... einer besser als der anderen... und doch eine große musikalische Familie... Fantastisch... Herzlichen Glückwunsch Hans, dass Du dich mit so tollen Leuten umgeben kannst und so toll zusammenarbeiten könnt... Mein Traum - einmal mit Euch auf der Bühne stehen... ich kann nur kein Instrument... vielleicht Triangel ;-)

Ich habe mich schon als Kind für Filmmusik begeistert und hatte/habe eine entsprechend große LP/CD-Sammlung von Hunderten von Filmmusiken... In den Anfängen noch Ennio Morricone (wo das Konzert leider abgesagt wurde) John Williams, Nino Rota, John Berry, Henry Mancini... usw. und mit Rain Man gesellte sich die erste Hans Zimmer LP dazu... und da sind noch einige wundervolle dazu gekommen... Black Rain, Backdraft, Crimson Tide, usw.

...und hier kommt nun mein Meckern am Konzert... warum nur drei Stunden? Wer so viele tolle Filmmusik geschrieben hat kann doch Ruhig ein acht Stunden Konzert geben :-) Jeder Fan hat bestimmt die eine oder andere Filmmusik vermisst... so hätte ich wahnsinnig gerne etwas aus Rango gehört. Das Thema aus Rango würde sich auch perfekt für Live eignen... meine Meinung... Und ich wollte eigentlich in Leipzig nach dem Konzert noch "Zugabe Rango" rufen... aber Ihr hatte Euch den Feierabend redlich verdient. Da wurde über drei Stunden mit einer Leidenschaft und einem Einsatz ein Konzert zelebriert... Großartig!

Aber lieber Hans, warum will ich unbedingt Rango hören? Weil dies eine kleine Geschichte von mir ist... die Du, falls Du mal Rango in die Live-Liste mit aufnimmst, gerne erzählen kannst... was Fans von Dir beim Filmschauen denken... :-)
Ich habe damals mit meiner Freundin und ihren Kindern im Kino Rango gesehen... und habe mich die ganze Zeit gefragt "Verdammt. Vom wem ist diese geniale Filmmusik???" Wie gesagt, ich habe mich von Kindheit an für Filmmusik interessiert... und kannte auch einiges von Dir... aber ich überlegte "Morricone? Nein zu modern... Williams? Bestimmt nicht... Wer macht den noch Western Musiken? Horner? Passt auch nicht... und so grübelte ich über diese fantastische Musik, anstatt mir den Film anzuschauen :-) ...und als der Abspann kam... und alle Leute aufstanden und gehen wollten, blieb ich sitzen... Ich musste Wissen wer das Komponiert hatte - HANS ZIMMER! Ja klar... der Hans der kann's ;-) Am nächsten Tag hatte meine Sammlung eine neue CD

Lieber Hans... vielen Dank für das großartige Konzert. Der Dank gilt allen großartigen Musikern die an diesem Abend auf der Bühne waren und uns begeistert haben. Ein unvergessliches Erlebnis... und ich erzähle all meinen Freunden von diesem Erlebnis... Wir freuen uns noch auf ganz viele tolle Filmmusik von Dir und wünschen Euch allen das Beste...

Liebe Grüße

Henrike + Harry

Dear Hans Zimmer,

I just came home from your 2017.06.01 Budapest concert. I have to say that the first half of your concert was superb (which included Gladiator and Pirates of the Caribbean), but the second half was a huge disappointment. It resembled more a heavy metal concert than an actual symphonic concert. I could scarcely recognize any musical themes during the second half, seemed like you just left your talent in the first half. Also I deeply missed the music of King Arthur, which is one of your (if not) best score. Please next time try harder and leave out the heavy metal stuff, your audience loves you for your melodic orchestra and not the brainless bass.

Sincerely: Endre

Hello Hans Zimmer,

We visited your concert yesterday here in Budapest. Unfortunately it was a big disappointment. The first half was OK, but the second half was terrible. It was like a very loud heavy metal concert, we had to cover our ears and not just our ears, but we also had to close our eyes, because of the constant, annoying stroboscope. It was harmful for both eyes and ears and we have seen children and even a pregnant woman in the concert. I am sure it was not healthy for them either. We had to leave 10 minutes before the end because my wife got sick.

What a disappointment...

Regards, Peter

Dear Hans,

me and my wife visited the concert in Leipzig, Germany on May 24th 2017. We are big fans of Hans’ music and were in joyful anticipation to see him playing live some of our most favorite songs.

We had tickets for the best category right in front of the stage. By the way: we also visited John Williams and we have tickets for James Newton Howard as well.

But sadly this concert was a total disaster and we drove back home with nothing else than disappointment and anger. Compared to John Williams, where we were totally excited and told everybody about the great concert, we weren’t able to do this for the Hans Zimmer concert.

Let me explain in short, how we experienced this Hans’ concert.

1) Sound
The sound was horrible. The bass (especially sub-bass) was way to loud. Everything was booming, the sound was ‚muddy‘ and totally distorted. Vocals were hearable and understandable only if the band was playing very quitely.

At least, many people had to cover their ears because of the high loudness. And some people left the concert because of the bad sound. And just as a note: such high levels are harmful to health and if you like your fans to hear your music in the future, you shouldn’t kill their hearing ability!

Front of House was at the very end of the hall - so they didn’t hear how bad it was in front of the stage - and the most expensive seats.

I have to say this was no professional work. It seems like they just tried to kill any noise by turning up the volume to the max (like in the 80s) instead of optimizing sound and setup adjusted to the hall and the audience.

2) Lightshow and screen
The lightshow was a lowlight as well.

Almost the whole lightshow was based on strobe effects and flashing lights - no matter if the moving hads were flashing or the psychedelic moving images on the big screen were flickering and flashing. I was not able to watch this concert longer than a few seconds and then I had to close my eyes for a few seconds before I was able to watch again. Two hours of strobing and flickering lights, all the way from light to dark and back again in high frequencies was very exhausting. And it wasn’t only me. I saw a lot of people keeping their heads down and were watching the ground and not the stage.

Lucky me, I’m not an epileptic….

The big screen was used only for this irritating images and sometimes for pre-recorded! scenes, where some of the musicians were playing their instruments instead of showing the band or Hans’ playing live or if Hans’ is telling stories about the songs, his live or his friends and band colleagues.

At least this kind of lightshow and use of the big screen didn’t make it possible to see the artists faces. So it’s a bit like with the sound… You couldn’t hear them, but you couldn’t see them as well.


So why do you visit a concert? Right, to see the artist play and hear, what they play. Both wasn’t possible or a joy that day.

There are many clips on YouTube, where you can see and hear what we experienced. And no, the distorted sound is not caused by „bad mics“ of the smartphones...


I’m very sad to say this, but this was the worst concert of my live. I’m not able to tell anything good about this event - and everybody was expecting the total opposite. And to be honest - I wish I could get my money back, for the very first time in my live after visiting a concert. It was such a waste of time and money :(

Rick

Dear Hans Zimmer Team,
what is up with your Live-Tour sound? Almost all of the eventim-FanReports for your live tour talk about deafening bass, drowned-in-noise vocals, actually exploding speakers and people leaving early. I was in Leipzig, your technicians might remember the guy who asked them for earplugs.

I will alert the emissions-protection-bureau about this. Because submitting People to 100+dB without proper warning is actually illegal here.

In truth, I would like my money back.

Hello Hans Zimmer,

My boyfriend and i went to your concert in Forum yesterday.
My boyfriend have been a fan of you, since he was a teenager, renting your soundtracks in the public libary. He is 32 now. I gave his tickets for the show as a surprise and he had been talking about it every day for more than 2 months. He knows facts about dreams you had when you were younger, why you chose a certain tune and he has watched the thin red line at least a 1000 times, just for the music.
We came an hour early yesterday all ready and so happy. Then you began. Everyhing was wrong. The music was at least 25 % too loud. We had no chance what so ever to the seperat instruments. People were covering their ears most of the time. The light show was enough to make anyone get an epileptic seizure.
What we love about your music and you, is that you can create a universe with one sound. Yesterday was more like being at a heavy metal concert. You had no reason for the gospel singers, because you could not hear ONE word they were saying.
The last song you played, on the piano alone, was amazing. And half of the lion king and half of pirates o t c. But the rest sounded like being at copenhagen hell (a rock festival).
You have meant everything for my boyfriends musical taste. And he was so sad yesterday, because you completly shattered his idea of that.
We had to walk home instead of taking the train, because we were just so angry and had so much to talk about.

I am so so sorry about last night. I wish it had never heppened.
Regards Mille
