In the last 7 years or so the only Oscar that I think was deserved is Gravity by Steven price. By the way hybrid it was a tough comment for me. Thanks to all people here who think it was.<br>I totally agree that the music fit the movie perfectly Hans always did great job in this but as a standalone music for me and again (for me) the docking in interstellar do all the job on Dunkirk ( I mean suspense) so for me all Dunkirk soundtrack = docking in interstellar.<br>quote: "This score is nothing compared to interstellar or even to POTC 3."<br><br>How do you know or how do you judge? By musical complexity, number of themes, etc.? I think the Dunkirk score perfectly serves the movie - which is what it's supposed to do.<br><br>Hans' last and only Oscar-wining score was Lion King, and that one wasn't so remarkable either - on its own. So it would kind of make sense for a score like Dunkirk to get him the award.<br><br>After all, when it comes to the academy, I don't think they look at a score in isolation - like we do as Zimmer fans - but rather how well it serves the film. If they love a film and let it win best picture and other categories, it's very likely they'll also give it "best original score".Great this is geting a release!<br>I am from Greece and the same is Nikos Mastorakis, the director.<br>He always recalls working with Hans Zimmer and Stanley Myers here.Ultimate masterpiece... 8-) lolVery impressed with the music from this season. Enjoying listening to it.there doesn’t seem to be much of the main theme used ?
man, i think i haven't listened to "A Dark Knight" deep enough. so many things i picked up from listening to it recently. oh by the way, it's Dunkirk that's making me go back and listen to the old scores.One of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 21st C. Mr. Zimmer please make this original London recording available in a cd (320kbps) or a lostless version to be able to enjoy its full beauty. The version on YouTube is just muddy cruddy. And the version on the Prague cd is not a chorus of this caliber. Plz plz plz! Gratefully, Philip...why is Eric Whitacre's credit being omitted?Music is royal and grand and the show is very good. Looking forward to more seasonsGreat score! Lots of fun.
Your Majesty is addictive and could listen to this also day long.Was Theme is last year ?Now, what do you thinnk anout the score?<br><br>There are two things that made me underappreciate the score: first these full credits (upset that perhaps a good track might havenot been written by POwell himself) and the fact that Powell will score Han Solo (expectation that this might be a trial score)<br><br>But,<br><br>"Madrid Finale" is clearly 5 star track, and so many nods to classical era of film score.<br><br>There are 4 themes that i can gather:<br>Ferdinand theme <br>Flower Theme<br>"Caring" theme<br>and "bad guy" theme<br>and all of them are good ( not as powerful as HTTYD though)<br><br>But, i find some action writing to be quite generic ( Anthony B Willis is to blame i guess)<br><br>Suffice to say that this is already a 4 star score because this is as subtle as you can get from hyperactive Powell's animation scoresThis score is BRILLIANT.Just started watching this season and the music is spot on especially the Princess Margaret episode. Gregson-Williams and Balfe have create a great score to this season.more intamint and emotional than before@Bob<br><br>Thank you for the enlightment, I will consider opening my wrists for misconduct in the next few days, thank you very much... :o<br><br><br><br>Ok seriously though, you guys should know that if there's one guy that could not care less about awards... it's Hans... :)
I am really enjoying his season of the Crown.a big balfe influence in this season with hints of Churchil and Genius I think. Really excellent music/ it's me@ds "Ramin is also doing a lot of projects but is far, far behind in terms of styles and creativity."<br> <br>I think the same for Jablonsky, Zanelli, XL, Jackman and Mancina.@macejko<br><br>"All the time he acts like the hottest shit in town, refusing to score basically everything they offer him"<br><br>You said in another comment that you never read an interview with Powell, so not reason you take that kind of conclusion of your character.<br><br>"The man hides in a cave, doesn't evolve at all and for some mysterious reason he is still revered like a second coming of Jesus Christ."<br>Powell is a clearly talented composer. He suffered criticism at the beginning of his career by sounding like Zimmer, but soon showed substance. And much more than that created an identifiable style, which today is reference to other scores of modern animations (which may be good or bad to depend on of the point of view).<br>Today he is an established composer and it is common for these composers to move away for a few years or even close their careers without many explanations for the public. In recent years we watched the estrangement of Silvestri, Horner, Williams and in the past we saw Faltemeyer, Bill Conti and Brad Fiedel drop their careers when they were at the top of the game.<br><br>" Say anything you will about Lorne Balfe, but at least he is working his ass off and slowly getting better and better"<br><br>As they said in another comment, you're compared to newbies and veterans. Balfe's having the opportunity of his life now. Take it or leave it. There's no choice. Powell, as well as Zimmer others, on the other hand, is a "senior member" of the club. He can afford to go away for a few years to resolve comprehensible personal problems without affecting the hard work he has developed in the last 20 years. Will Balfe continue to be so creative in 10 or 15 years?<br><br>@ds<br><br>"<br>Powell has nothing to prove, he has already mastered all genres"<br><br>That's funny, but it's fair. Powell Is a good composer. Not the best, far from it. Your style really narrows your work down, but we can say that from all the composers out there. So it's not a problem.The problem is he wants to limit his work to animations and fantasy.because he abhors gratuitous violence.<br><br>@george<br><br>". Although, I hate to say it, we could say the same for Zimmer in my opinion"<br><br>Zimmer's at the end of his career. All the other composers when they arrived at 60 years (with the exception of JNH, Goldsmith and Morricone) reduced the amount of projects per year and went on to choose their work best. It's a natural way.Over the years, it tends to get worse with one exception here and there. Don't keep expectations like he's in his prime<br><br>"he has "nothing more to prove", he is creatively dead."<br><br><br>Powell will work with a little more frequently in the coming years (or not) that only depends on his ambitions. However, frankly, he's never going to do three again. 4.5. 6 projects in a year. It takes a lot of motivation for that.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>Just listened to the whole thing, kind of a let down. Nothing interessting except for some action moments. Don’t even recall hearing some sort of theme. Overall it was like listening to Cars 4: Spanish World Cup.

Wanted to write a review about the show I visited last friday in Oberhausen.

I had high expectations but this was absolutely amazing. For people who are still having doubts, the tracklist as Hybrid confirmed was played at Oberhausen. Rain Man was not played tho, and why? They wanted to play something from Prince because the band felt like doing something for Prince. This was absolutely shocking, what an amazing performance.

The pleasure the band had in doing the whole performance and especially Purple Rain (it at least has Rain from Rain Man in it :D) was amazing to see. The musical power they have and capabilities, world class.

The sound was good as well, was sitting at row 11 right in the middle and I was afraid that the sound was not that great since i read some comments about that here from other locations. PERFECT in Oberhausen from my POV.

Best performance: 160BPM from Angels & Demons (Im not a real fan of the song but this weas extremely well performed)
Best part (exclusive Purple Rain: Gladiator and Lion King, the vocals were stunning.
Best suprise: PRUPLE RAIN + Johnny Marr (I did not expect him to be there).
Worst part: Hearing that Ann Marie (Calhoun) Simpson is married to Mike Einziger two weeks ago (LUCKY GUY).

Last but not least: The Tech guys, I saw how they instantly got moving after the concert was closed, that was some high level shit. I think within an hour everything was gone, in trucks and on the road to Paris. Thank you tech guys for an amazxing night

Thank you Hans, thanks Hybrid with feeding us all information on here.

Best night of my life.

I saw him live in Berlin last night! The concert was an extremely entertaining experience. Very Hans. He's a great host, as likeable as you would expect given his interviews (although it's curious that he has quite a thick accent in both English and German...a true third culture kid, I guess! :p ) He was wearing a T-shirt that said "Lord forgive me for my synths", for starters. And, of course, everything was mixed in an exceedingly loud drum-heavy wall-of-sound kind of way. That was a little irritating at some points: the drums particularly drowned everything else out in "Why So Serious" and robbed it of a lot of its scrappy anarchic character, and I'm not sure "Journey to the Line" and "No Time for Caution" needed massive rock drum kit at their respective climaxes. "Electro" lost a lot of the layers that make that piece so interesting, too (no bassoon! frown ). And I was never quite sure how much of what I was hearing was being generated onstage by actual instruments and how much was being piped through (since the choir was only men and the "orchestra" consisted of maybe a dozen people, quite a substantial amount). But on the other hand - all of that just is Hans. I guess! :P

I thought it was interesting that the concert was, other than the really early stuff sprinkled throughout like Rain Man, True Romance and Driving Miss Daisy, roughly divided up into the "older-school" melodic/thematic/"hook"-y, outwardly emotional, fun Zimmer stuff in the first half (Crimson Tide, Da Vinci Code, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lion King, Sherlock Holmes, Gladiator etc), and then switched over into the nu-Hans minimalist stuff for the second (The Dark Knight, Man of Steel, Inception, The Thin Red Line, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Interstellar etc). The result was a pretty big difference in enjoyment of the two halves; it was all fun, of course, but the Zimmer music I truly love was mostly in the first half. Pirates of the Caribbean made for a far stronger close to the first half, in my opinion, than Inception for the second. The crowd was particularly responsive to Gladiator, Pirates, The Lion King, The Dark Knight and Inception, unsurprisingly - but I think it was Pirates that got the loudest applause and cheers of all.

Most entertaining person to watch onstage was Richard Harvey, who played the clarinet solo from Driving Miss Daisy with tons of personality and even put on a bicorne hat for Pirates. :D Runner up in that category was drummer Satnam Ramgotra with his epic beard and dazzling white suit.

I was fairly happy with the selection of pieces, too. I mean, realistically speaking they were never going to play Cool Runnings or A League of Their Own. I did hold out slim, sadly-unfulfilled hopes for The Prince of Egypt, King Arthur and/or The Last Samurai, and was actually a little surprised in retrospect that nothing from Backdraft was played. But there's only so much time in an evening, I guess! I personally could have done with a little less Batman or Inception to compensate ("Mombasa", eesh. Hate that track), but people simply expect to hear that stuff.

All in all, we had a great time. Even those flaws I pointed out - of course, if you don't have a pretty significant soft spot for Zimmer in the first place (and I do), it's entirely possible you'll walk away with far more mixed feelings (or even outright annoyance). For my part, they didn't really bother me because they stem in large part from Zimmer's musical personality. For better or for worse, the concert really was a purely Hans experience, a once-in-a-lifetime kind of deal that I think is worth the fairly steep ticket prices.

Ds2016-04-21 12:49:05
Thanks for your report Edmund, glad you enjoyed it!! As you say this concert is just pure Hans. And that's why it's so amazing. High production value, extremely good musicians, impeccable rendition of the music, wall of sound - and nice, warm speeches.

As for Mombasa, it's funny you mention it because I'm not a fan of that track either (I like it, but not my favourite from Inception), but I thought the live rendition was terrific, one of the highlights. Maybe it has to do with the way it was mixed, but anyway.

Frenchans2016-04-24 12:43:39
Agree with you Edmund, the first part of the concert was really intense. I loved Gladiator, Da Vinci Code, Crimson Tide and POTC: I could not hold my tears! The second part, however, much less. The battery was too present for my taste. I was disappointed by Batman, and what a pity that Hans spoke during Aurora. Inception part, although played well, I was not packed , but it's a matter of taste. I hope that if in the future it getting a tour he will play other songs (Last Samurai , King Arthur, Rush, Contender, more of Thin Red Line, more of Da Vinci Code...)
But, I do not regret to have attended this concert. I finally saw my idol and that's wonderful :D

Dear Hans Zimmer,

I was there last night in Paris on April 23th when you performed for us. Being a big fan of yours i couldn't expect more from you. You are exactly as you are, a genius but also a great human being. Thank you so much for your amazing performance and thanks to your entire crew ! My only deception : i wasn't able to shake your hand and thank you personnally.
For almost 3 hours i was in a completely different world with nothing but emotion and greatness.
Thanks Hans! Vielen Dank und viel Spass während dein Tour.

Hello -

I am coming from London to the show in Paris on Saturday evening. One of my party has fallen ill today unfortunately and so him and his girlfriend can't come.

So we have 2 tickets to sell...

As they are paper tickets there is not enough time to sell them on Viagogo (where i bought them from) as they need time to recieve and then redistribute the tickets.

They are 111.50 Euros each but we would accept an offer for the pair. Otherwise they will go to waste!

If you wish to purchase them we would have to meet in person outside the venue - please contact me on if you are interested.

Hey Hybrid,

What is the daily schedule for Hans and his band?
Do they travel to the next town right after the concert or do they stay over night? What do they do on their free days - practice or sightseeing?

How long does it take to set-up the stage for the concert? I noticed their are b2b concerts without any free days. So the stage crew has to work the whole night, first they need to remove the stage, drive all the equipment to the new venue and then they need to set-up the new stage... or how does it work?

Hybrid Soldier2016-04-21 15:56:26
They usually depart to the other city in bus a couple of hours after the show.

The tech guys depart even before and start to set up the stage the moment the arrive...

It is nonsense to play music from the movie Spider-Man, Rain Man, True Romance and Driving Miss Daisy. They could and should play music from the movies THE ROCK (IMHO the best SCORE), The Last Samurai, Pearl Harbor and more of the Man of Steel, Interstellar, Inception (528491, Dream Within a Dream), Gladiator (Barbarian Horde, The Might Of Rome) and Dark Knight (I'm not a hero, a dark Knight)

Ds2016-04-19 21:46:36
Lol rigth it s a nonsense to play the music that defined HZ in the beginning of his career... Many people know and love those scores. This concert is a nice overview of Hans' career through different genres, there is a bit of everything.

You wanted The Rock, you had Crimson Tide. You wanted Pearl Harbor? You got The Thin Red Line. You wanted The Last Samurai? You got Gladiator. And the rest? You got it :-)

Edmund Meinerts2016-04-20 10:46:51
I'm not, like, a huge fan of that score or anything, but I would be very sad if they didn't play Rain Man or Driving Miss Daisy. Those two are super important scores to Zimmer's career; without them, he probably would have fizzled and died sometime in the mid-90s and none of us would even be here. I'm glad the concert at least attempts to be an overview of his entire career (still missing A LOT of great, wouldn't it be nuts if they played The Final Game from A League of Their Own? They'd need a whole extra ensemble!), and not just the popular, overplayed Nolan/Pirates/Gladiator/Man of Steel stuff.

I'll report back from Berlin tonight! :D

how long did the concert in mannheim take?

Just scroll down a bit, this question has been answered countless times :-)

Officially it starts at 20h and ends at 22h40. In Brussels there was a 20min delay, so it ended around 23h.

Don't plan your train too early because there can be delays and with the crowd you never know when you'll be out :-p

Hi all,

how long usually do recent concerts take? 2 hours?3 hours?

I need to check the train plan, since my place is far from the concert's place.

The Dark Knight was disappointing. Too much of Why so serious and Bane and so little from Batman. And even that, the drums were soooo loud that the strings have been so silent. So what i only heard were the beat, nothing else from the Batman music. I only could imagine what they're actually playing. They should have put the volume of the drums down.

Spiderman (Electro) was also a huge disappointment. Actually i can't understand why that was choosed to be played. Surely he has so much more to choose instead of that horrible cue.

Other then that, to see him live is unbeatable and unforgettable. I am so thankful to have seen him live. He was so nervous and it was so likeable to see him acting like a child sometimes haha.

Ds2016-04-19 13:19:06
Haha, my friends told me the same about Batman. Too much drums hiding the rest of the music. I didn't mind but I can understand. It's a rock reworking, not the actual cue played live.

TASM2 I have to disagree, it was so damn powerful. The choir in surround was great, and the climax was a blast. I definitely understand why they play that one, it seems made for a rock concert! ... and a lot of fun to play on stage :-p

Troberan2016-04-19 13:35:26
well for Spiderman, it's then a thing of taste. i didn't like it ^^ but if others liked it, then i'm glad he chosed it, so everyone could have their favorite in the show. :)

for batman, i understand that it can't be like the cue on my disk. still i was very surprised how near other cues have sounded to the original. but batman was just tooooo volumed drums. no critics of the drums itself. the drumer was a beast haha, but it overtuned the music like you're saying, especially the batman part way to much, so i couldn't hear anything but the drums. it was a bit annoying ^^

where have your friends have been listening it? and you were in brussels right? how was the sound there?

Ds2016-04-19 15:09:09
Yep I was in Brussels, and my friends were with me :-p

The sound was the biggest I've ever heard, rock concerts included. Saw Muse in the same location a few weeks earlier, even they didn't have that huge freaking sound. I was in awe throughout, literally!

Beendruckendes Konzert, zweifelsohne. Highlights waren DA VINCI CODE, LION KING, GLADIATOR und THE DARK KNIGHT. Allerdings war das eigentliche Thema von THE DARK KNIGHT viel zu kurz. vermisst habe ich THE ROCK und PEARL HARBOR. Ich hätte mir mehr seichtere Klänge und mehr Gefühl gewünscht, stattdessen ähnelte es phansenweise eher einem Rock Konzert, meine Erwartungen wurden nicht erfüllt.

5 dates in the 'U.K' but NONE IN SCOTLAND?
Come on Mr Zimmer! I've loved your music since Miami Vice but this sucks!

One dates in Glasgow?? Surely you have time

trent easton navarro 2016-03-31 17:12:34
Zimmer never worked on Miami Vice, but who knows, maybe Jan Hammer has time to come to Scotland

Scott2016-04-01 03:32:05
Trent Easton navarro ...

Hans did do work on Miami vice, not all MV scoring was JH. Please do your research before calling bullsh*t on someone's comment. Nothing worse than someone dousing someone else's flame to try and make their own shine brighter...

Scotland date would have been great! SECC Hydro would do nicely?! &#128077;

Randy Waston2016-04-01 15:35:02

Besides Hammer, Tim Truman and John Peterson scored several episodes. But there's no listing of Mr. Zimmer working on any episode.

So tell us, for which episode(s) did Zimmer write the music?

Patrick2016-04-03 17:36:48
Well,... nearly... not the series, but kind of the movie: ht tp://www.hans-zimmer. com/index.php?rub=disco&id=746 ;-)

Siobhan2016-04-18 13:20:27
Im from Scotland too, I was hoping there would be a concert here too. Luckily manchester isn't too far away. I can't wait to go, hopefully he will come to Scotland one day :D

One of the best nights of my life. I was moved to tears on more than one occasion. Thank you Mr Zimmer for writing such amazing music.

Ds2016-04-15 01:19:36
The sound in Palais 12 was so fucking huge, i'm still shaking. Loved the extended versions of The Thin Red Line and No Time For Caution. The speech during Aurora was so touching and resonated with the recent events in Belgium, it got a standing ovation. I didnt think they could possibly improve on the 2014 London shows.... But they definitely did! Many thanks and congrats to Hans and his incredible team!!

PS: i really really hope Hans sees this post!!

Patrak2016-04-17 15:09:17
I totally agree Ds, the sound in Palais 12 is really something.

I really didn't know what to expect, 16 years after Ghent, and I was blown away.

The setlist is perfect and covers 30 years of music beautifully.

Personal highlight : The Dark Night Medley
I didn't know it was possible to play "Why So Serious?" live.
Simply amazing !

The last part of the concert, so The Dark Knight + Interstellar + Inception is just... well, I haven't find the words yet.

I've got my tickets for one of the Luxemburg dates next month, I can't wait to live this dream a second time !

Thanks Mr. Zimmer

SuperZ2016-04-18 11:42:40
I do not agree - the sound in Palais 12 was at times... terrible! Certainly during the 2nd part of the concert where the sound system seemed to have trouble handling low frequencies. Bad PA mixing i think. The guys operating the follow spots where not quiet awake :-/
Apart from this technical "bummer", the concert was a "blast" - I can only hope they have/are recording the concert in HD, so we'll be able to experience the magic of Zimmer over and over again.
Thanks Mr. Zimmer for your great music - it really touches the hart of my soul!

Wow, yesterday in Mannheim! Unbelievable. Who knows the names of the two female violinist?

Hale2016-04-17 15:00:48
Ann Marie Simpson and Rosanda Filanda.
The cellist is Tina Guo.
Amazing band!!

Mr Tweedy2016-04-17 18:05:36
It's Ann Marie Simpson and Rusanda Panfili, actually ! :)

Mannheim was very emotional. To be back again in Germany for the first time, you have seen how nervous Hans was. And it was special that he spoke all the time german to us. Remembering his father, the dedication to the friends of his father who came to see Hans in Mannheim, was something very special. The speech for Heath Ledger, Aurora and the world itself was very touching aswell. Show itself was outstanding and i loved every second of it. To see him performing, to see everyone from the band, was absolutely amazing! Thank you very much for these moments, which i will never forget!

rawchris2016-04-18 10:44:45
@Batman: I totally agree with you. First of all, I was very surprised he was speaking german all the time. I didn't accept that. Remembering his father, thanking his ex-employees on that night and speaking of his childhood made that night very, very personal. The Aurora speech was very, very deep and touching. I was crying the whole song, I couldn't keep control of myself.
I think, he was really very nervous about "coming home" for the first time. But he did very well. For me personal, this was one of the greatest moment in my life. Thank you Hans Zimmer for bringing this to Germany and let us be part of it!
