I don't think it is a good idea to wait much longer for releasing it, cause the hype will decrease. Now they would sell more I think.
I keep wondering about it myself..! And I'm getting worried that it will not happen. Why can't they give us anything about Wembley Audio release???
I contacted the Harvey Goldsmith's website to see if they had any information, I received a reply which stated,
"We are currently waiting on the final release date from our team in the US, which we're hoping will be soon. They're working really hard to get it finished for everyone as soon as they can, as we can't wait to share it with all the fans across the globe. As soon as we have further information or a release date we'll be posting about it on our social channels. So keep an eye out.
So sounds like is going happen just a matter of when, really looking forward to listening to the whole show again.
I repeated that it was on the way OVER & OVER AGAIN...
Be patient... When there's news you'll know...
@Hybrid Soldier Do you know if it will be released as FLAC?
Hello! It's me! I was wondering if there is any interview or statement of Hans Zimmer after his tour? He disappeared so quickly. I know there are upcoming projects like the CD and Blu-ray of his concert and the CD with artists who perform his music. But is there anything he said about his tour? How he felt during and after his tour. If he could imagine doing it again or does he prefer using the time for composing instead? I read that he wanted to do some holidays in Germany after his tour. Is that the case now or is he already busy with new projects? Thank you in advance you lovely Zimmerlisteners
I think at least we can expect some interviews about that on the bluray release!
Are there any plans for a 2017 tour in UK? The dates for my location conflicted with my Dad's 60th birthday so I was completely gutted that I couldn't go. Hans dominates my playlist on a daily basis!
What kind of dad celebrates his birthday 5 times in 2 months? :o :o :o
The awesome one :D On the other hand, UK is pretty big, so maybe for some people it's a struggle to go to another city if it's pretty far. I did not stop me to go to the neighbour country though (about 600 km). :D
Does anybody know something about the Live-CD? I mean the tour is over now it's time to publish the Wembley record. :)
This fall - audio. Sometime in 2017 - video.
That's the first time in weeks I see a somewhat specific release date of the Wembly audio... Do you have a source by any chance?
Yes, the source is the booklet I bought in Zimmer's concert. It says "Coming this autumn - the recording event of the year! / The Landmark new album with stunning new arrangements". I'm not a 100% sure this is THE Wembley record, but I don't think they would release two albums that would be basically identical - the best of (live)... This one's also available for the pre-order now. The album is titled ''Hans Zimmer - The Classics" however, but the artwork is to be changed (it's what was written on the booklet I have) so maybe the title will be changed as well... Oh, there you go, just checked the date on Amazon - 14th of October.
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hans-Zimmer-Classics/dp/B01DP426UE/ ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1466851410&sr=8-4&keywords=hans+zimme r
Oh, and the source for the video (blu-ray) release is basically IMDb.
Aaaaah, this is a totally different album! This is just a compilation of HZ greatest hits performed by different artists. Nothing to do with the concert recording itself.
Oh, okay then. It still seems strange to me though - why release ''The Classics'' album at all, when there will be a live concert CD? By the way, I just checked on IMDb that the realease for the blu-ray (if I understand correctly) is 14th of February, 2017. So maybe the audio will come together, or a bit sooner. I still hope for the autumn of this year.
Yeah, it's also pretty strange that they would advertise an album by other artists in the live show booklet (or did HZ work on that album as well?) and not mention the live recording itself. It really feels like they're letting this slide... I sincerely hope I'm wrong but just a message to clarify things wouldn't hurt them right? Judging by this website, and the Twitter and Facebook-page of HZLive, a LOT of people are begging for this release and the Blu-ray as well. So what's all this radio silence about?
increase the hype, so they can charge you a higher price for it, when they're going to release it and everybody is soooooo happy that they indeed released it. nothing but marketing bs.
Yeah, you're probably right... Maybe the whole thing worked out better than they expected and after releasing the first track they thought 'wait a minute, let's have them craving for this a bit longer'? I mean, it does work, but they also risk that people start to wander off because the 'OMG that show was so amazing'-ecstasy doesn't last forever... Not that I didn't love it -totally did-, but I think that if they were selling the cd at the concert or directly after the last show, I would've been more hyped to buy it than say 3 months afterwards... But that's just how I feel about these things...
Hi, Will there be later a Bluray disc available of the concert? The one in Budapest was truly an incredible experience and I'd like to "relive" it at home over and over again.
It's planned. Don't ask me when... lol
So I guess the iTunes release of the Wembley show is purely and simply cancelled, and we'll get something together with the blu-ray? Or is the Wembley release still planned?
Wembley is for audio, Prague is for video.
hybrid any idea when audio is gonna get released? I got the first track through the code, wonder when rest will show up
Audio - any idea when they release it? ;)
Yeah, truth. Prague is for video. And i Am absolutelly happy I was there.....as i am from Czech republic, Prague. And having standing ovation already before break after Pirates of the Caribbean....that is gonna be great atmosphere for DVD !
According to IMDB, the blu-ray might get released in feb 2017. But I wouldn't bet money on it ;)
Aaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!! 14 februari 2017
Any news when the audio is going to be released PLEASE
I also am looking for when the Wembley audio will be released, is there any information you can give us Hybrid Soldier,
I have the opening medley from the dropcard and the quality is amazing, looking forward to when can get the rest
As a long time fan an follower of Hans Zimmer's music, I am wondering, did everyone who's visiting this page get to see this concert?
I can tell you that you missed out big time if you didn't. I watched the concert in London in 2014 and it was even better this time when I watched it in Manchester. THIS is the way to experience Hans Zimmer's music - played out LOUD at BIG arenas, and it was arranged in such a way that fans will enjoy it to the max. Compared to the album versions the music in the show is more driven by percussion (drums and cymbals more present) and will appeal especially to those who like the "rock side" of Hans. I was afraid that his music would not sound good live due to it's nature of lots of digital processing, but they sure proved me wrong. There was never a dull moment in this concert.
The stage was filled with brilliant musicians who did a show on their own, like Tina Guo, Ann Marie Simpson, Aleksey Igudesman and many more. Satnam Ramgotra kicked ass on the drums. The musicality and energy they brought out on this show was nothing short of amazing.
The biggest highlight for me was Electro, with Johnny Marr playing it with the exact right sound. If you thought it rocked on the album, well, let me put it this way; I challenge any heavy metal band to do that one better, it lifted the roof off the arena.
Other highlights that has to be mentioned is Crimson Tide, The Pirates Suite and The Dark Knight. It's like they've watched all the clips on YouTube where other bands have covered these melodies and decided let's make an arrangement so awesome that no one will ever manage to make it more awesome!
I really hope this tour will continue. I am sure there will be no problem filling up the arenas again.
I really hope he does another tour as i was unable to make his 2016 tour. I do feel like i missed out big time. The videos on you-tube of the concert are amazing and i plan to see him live one day. Wondering if he would visit and perform in Australia.
Hi to all the Hans's community, I and my husband were on Orange France last Sunday for the final concert. Wahooo!! we're still intensely touched by that so special night and in a so special place. Thanks to all of you ! I have to say that imperfections were perfect and what you give to us unforgettable! Interstellar under the stars was so, so emotional … and Inception,..., there's no word to express my feelings!! Mister Zimmer. your music may be composed in a dark studio but must be heard outside in the nature ! During the concert Birds and wind were dancing with the vibrations of your music ....and me too ! Thank you so much for your creative channel, blessed and inspiring. Nb : we waited till 3:30 am to thank you, in vain... so i do it now! Thank you to give what you receive.
That last show in Orange really was for the fans! Extended runtime, with so much more anecdotes and stories from Hans, more music (Thelma & Louise, such a nice addition), a unique location, and a great and shining friendship uniting all these people on the stage. Everyone was having fun, and the whole thing felt like a celebration, full of joy and sadness at the same time.
The outstanding performance of The Da Vinci Code gave me my biggest goosebumps ever, I thought my arms were going to explode! And the last few notes of Time... felt like Hans was playing them for the very last time. Incredibly pure and beautiful.
I spent 20 hours in my car this weekend, but it was worth every single second of it. I feel so grateful for attending this concert. Sorry for the long post, I'm still in a dream... very hard to get back to the reality after such a night! From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU Hans Zimmer!
I wanted to go to the concert in Orange but was sold out :( Which seemed a bit strange as I looked at some pictures from the concert online where there was a number of empty seats/spaces.
Do you remember which other tracks they played that was outside the regular program?
In Manchester they played
- Opening Medley (Driving Miss Daisy (Theme) / Sherlock Holmes (Discombobulate) / Madagascar 2 (Rescue)) - Crimson Tide + Angels & Demons (Roll Tide / 160 BPM) - Gladiator (Progeny / The Wheat / The Battle / Honor Him / Now We Are Free) - The Da Vinci Code (Chevalier de Sangreal/503) - The Lion King (Circle Of Life opening / Lea Halalela / King Of The Pride Rock) - POTC Medley (Jack Sparrow / Love Suite / Up is Down / He’s A Pirate)
- True Romance (Theme) - Medley Rain Man (End Titles) - Man Of Steel (What Are You Going To Do) - The Thin Red Line (Journey to the Line) - Spider Man 2 (Electro) - The Dark Knight Medley (Joker / Like A Dog Chasing Cars / Moody Bruce / The End/Aurora) - Interstellar (Day One / Cornfield Chase / No Time For Caution / Stay) - Inception Medley (Dream Is Collapsing / Mombasa / Time)
There were indeed free seats at the right and left, I think they didn't put them for sale, maybe because the view was too limited? Don't know.
The setlist was ordered slightly differently, and there was one extra track:
- Opening Medley (Driving Miss Daisy (Theme) / Sherlock Holmes (Discombobulate) / Madagascar 2 (Rescue)) - Gladiator (Progeny / The Wheat / The Battle / Honor Him / Now We Are Free) - Thelma & Louise (Thunderbird) - Medley Rain Man (End Titles) - True Romance (Theme) - The Da Vinci Code (Chevalier de Sangreal/503) - The Lion King (Circle Of Life opening / Lea Halalela / King Of The Pride Rock) - POTC Medley (Jack Sparrow / Love Suite / Up is Down / He’s A Pirate)
- The Thin Red Line (Journey to the Line) - Crimson Tide + Angels & Demons (Roll Tide / 160 BPM) - Man Of Steel (What Are You Going To Do) - Spider Man 2 (Electro) - The Dark Knight Medley (Joker / Like A Dog Chasing Cars / Moody Bruce / The End/Aurora) - Interstellar (Day One / Cornfield Chase / No Time For Caution / Stay) - Inception Medley (Half Remembered Dream / Dream Is Collapsing / Mombasa / Time)
I don't think they played "Progeny" from Gladiator. They started straight with The Wheat.
Un grand merci pour le concert du zénith de ROUEN ,je suis venu du DOUBS pour vous voir et vous avez réaliser une prestation de grande qualité....Merci Mr ZIMMER et a bientôt en concert en FRANCE j'espère???
What an unbelievable show tonight... The location was gorgeons, the crowd was crazy, and Hans and his band gave it all they had, almost 3h30 of show! This being the finale, there was a lot of emotion... Almost cried when Hans played the last notes of Time. This concert combined the huge sound of this tour, and the intimity of the Revealed shows: definitely the very best show I have seen.
Also, Ron Howard was there, and the way The Da Vinci Code was played for him was very, very moving. I also had the chance to meet Steve Mazzarro's charming parents, who couldn't believe I perfectly knew who their son was and which movie he worked on. I had the pleasure to tell them how much we HZ fans love Steve!
Best night of my life. Memories forever!
"I also had the chance to meet Steve Mazzarro's charming parents, who couldn't believe I perfectly knew who their son was and which movie he worked on. I had the pleasure to tell them how much we HZ fans love Steve!"
Out of the next 6 concerts in France, 4 are sold out... I didn't know HZ was such a phenomenon in France!!
the French are full of culture, it does not surprises me! hans zimmer is known worldwide. the french are fans and an expert on classical music and film. it is indisputable country of culture, love, and gastronomy. But against the French is a dirty character (not all) hahahaha
I discovered Hans Zimmer's music at a screening of Rain man, many many years ago, while I was a student. Since then I bought all his recordings. That's why having the rare privilege to see and listen to Hans in a concert in Paris was such a great pleasure. I was absolutly living a dream during the the first part of the concert, a little less during the second part, because I am not a huge fan of the super heros movies he did recently. But Johny Marr was were, even if Hans-Zimmer.com said he will not be present (???). Fabulous musicians on stage... I am going to see again Hans in Nantes on the 02 june 2016. Can someone in this site transfert my demand to Hans of listen in Nantes to one more track coming from his so marvelous scores of the 90's and 2000 years... And with such a great singer as Lebo M on stage, why not Mother Africa from the Power of one ?
Yeah or "The Journey" from Tears of the Sun!! That one would sound amazing in concert, and it'd be a nice fit right after the Lion King.
Unfortunately they have a gig every 2 days (or sometimes everyday), so there's 0,001% chance they'll find the time to include another track into the show. It's not about "just playing another song", it requires a looot of preparation from all people involved...
Tonight Hans will be in Nantes. I hope this concert will be as good as the Paris one. Great music and great artists again...
I got to meet and greet hans in Manchester arena . It was my third time seeing him on this tour . I had seen him in Prague,Dublin and now I got to meet him in Manchester . I am not a person to put up reviews etc but I have to tell people what hans zimmer is really like to meet . I have met a lot of famous people - they were OK but weren't very friendly butthey were busy on tour etc.Hans zimmer will always Be my no1. I have never met such a charming ,engaging ,friendly and genuine Person . He even thanked me for coming to the concert. Such a lovely lovely guy . They say never meet your heroes . I'm afraid I have to disagree with that . Hans zimmer is one of the nicest people I've ever met . Good for you Hanz
Absolutely'! My husband and I also attended this tour 3 times, Graz,Vienna and Rotterdam!i was since 20 years his fan,but my husband since the day of the concert in Graz. My husband fell so much in love of Hans's music and couldn't wait for the next concert. Therefore we drove to Vienna the day after and looked for tickets in Rotterdam week later. This is the power of music!
I think Hans Zimmer is one of the great movie soundtrack composers. I was so looking forward to listen to him live on his concert tour on 09 May 2016 in Zurich at Hallenstadion. My partner and I were there and couldn't stand how loud it was. My partner complained to whoever he found first from one of the technicians, and one thing they said was 'they don't want to be involved with sound'. Anyways after the interval we tried to stay longer but we left. It's a shame. We couldn't hear the music we only heard a "sound soup", sound blending in each other into one pile. I'm sorry for Hans Zimmer, the musicians and the audience. The music was almost unrecognizable due to the bad mixing.
So either that particular location was designed like shit (it happens to many large concert halls, it wouldn't be surprising), either you've never attended any rock concert in your whole life.
But don't blame the mixing, the sound engineers working on this tour are geniuses. When I saw that concert, the sound was simply glorious, perfectly mixed. Loud, yes, but each layer was audible.
Yes, Zurich Hallenstadion is well known for a shit acoustic and I did attend a rock concert before and Hans Zimmer's music is not a rock music if you know what I mean.
In that case that's too bad... Zimmer's music deserves so much more than a shitty acoustic. But in such conditions, sound engineers are no magicians, you can't blame them or blame Zimmer...
As for the rock music part, Hans has always been a rocker. Of course he uses much more instruments than the average rock band, and borrows elements from many genres, but the spirit and feel of his music is closer to rock music than symphonic music.
Well I have seen couple of rock acts in Zurich hallen stadion and those have been OK.
But Hans Zimmer was awesome yesterday ! Wow, just wow... But yeahs like Ds said, it's close to rock and loud. I know acoustic isn't great there, but Hans, his orchestra and sound engineers did a great job.
Sad to hear you couldn't enjoy it.
THE soup is served i guess. listening on YouTube from different locations and more or less like phones quality. I hear that THE mix is pretty good, You can hear everybody who's playing. That Some acoustics are really bad in Some locations yes there are huge differences, not to blame THE guys to Who do THE mix, .(play less loud?? No that wouldn't work since THE problem is THE problem stadium, then iTS like You get A beer whats only 1/3 has of filling, incomplete feeling.. Thing that would upset me is bright or harsh sound.... This has never happened with Hans as hè dont like that as well. I like to know more why You left ? Is pretty serious to me ;))
friend of the sound guy
I saw the show on sunday in Manchester and it sounded glorious. I have worked with the FOH person before and let me tell you, he is at the top of his game.
