Such a bloody shame I couldn't make it to the Palais 12 gig :( Good to hear there is going to be a cd release, that eases the pain a bit... Does anyone know if they're planning to do a blu-ray/dvd release as well?
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.
Just came home from the concert in Oberhausen. IT WAS AMAZING!!! Hans Zimmer and his band played a tribute to Prince. Purple Rain. You should see it on YouTube. Goosebumps! Thank you Hans Zimmer for two and a half hours epicness in my ears. It was a great moment seeing you live :)
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?
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...
Is there going to be a audio or video release of this concert? And is there any more information about the new collection coming this fall?
There will be an audio recording coming up around June (Download voucher for the first part comes with the show booklet). Source: Show booklet seller at Mannheim
Huh in Brussels I got a voucher for a download coming May 20th! It's a recording from the first Wembley show.

Thx DS for the info, then I'll wait for the concert in Zurich :)
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)
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 :-)
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 stuff...man, 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
Rain man and driving miss daisy are part of the program so don't worry :)
Hans back to the roots. This was an amazing night at SAP Arena in Mannheim, Germany. Should have known better and book tickets for the other locations in Germany as well. To all guys out there with tickets for the upcoming shows: Fasten your seatbelt, you will never forget this journey into sound. Thanks to Hans a dream came true, had been waiting for 25 years, was worth it!
Cant wait, friday it is!
See u then, got myself another ticket for Friday. A 3 hours drive, but who cares?
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
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.
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
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?
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
Zimmer never worked on Miami Vice, but who knows, maybe Jan Hammer has time to come to Scotland
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?! 👍
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?
Well,... nearly... not the series, but kind of the movie: ht tp://www.hans-zimmer. com/index.php?rub=disco&id=746 ;-)
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.
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!!
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
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?
Ann Marie Simpson and Rosanda Filanda. The cellist is Tina Guo. Amazing band!!
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!
@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!
WOW ! Such a f***ing show yesterday in Brussels ! I can't believe I was there to live that experience ! It is definitely one of the best concerts I have ever been. Such an energy !!! Congratulations to Hans and the whole team of musicians to bring the film music to us in such a way. For those who would hesitate to pay the quite expensive ticket, it worths every single euro of it ! I would pay it once more without hesitation to see it again !
CAREFUL potential SPOILER below !!!!!!!! Does any one know if it is a real "portabble" church organ ?
Well you can, there are plenty of shows in Luxemburg, Germany, France, really not far from Brussels :-p
No the church Organ is fake :P youtube.com/watch?v=RK_82ZFxo38
Hey thanks for the info and the video Johnny ! The problem with Hans, he always pushes further the boundaries ! this is why I would not be surprised if it was a real one :)
I enjoyed the show in Birmingham, but I would have enjoyed it much more if the volume had been turned down somewhat. Maybe it's just me (I never go to arena gigs or rock concerts of any kind and always hear symphony or chamber music live) but I thought it was much too loud. Did anyone else think this?
I loved the show and I though the volume was fine considering I was on the 3rd row from front. I thought the lighting could have been dimmed, too much strobe in the second half. Gotta say though I was disappointed with the meet and greet, no autographs and the tour manager can't even take a decent photo. Very disappointed in that one. Hans could have at least signed one. Maybe it was up to management but hans is his own person and could have done it.
........I did see him signing before the show and after though which made it even more annoying that he didn't sign during the meet and greet.
01 - Intro Medley (Driving Miss Daisy theme / Sherlock Holmes Discombobulate / Madagascar Rescue Me) 02 - Crimson Angels Medley (Roll Tide rearranged / 160 BPM) 03 - Gladiator Medley (The Wheat / The Battle / Honor Him / Now We Are Free) 04 - Da Vinci Code (Chevalier de Sangreal) 05 - The Lion King Medley (Opening / Lea Halelela / King of Pride Rock ending) 06 - Pirates Of The Caribbean Medley (Jack Sparrow / Love Suite (basically One Day + Up Is Down) / He's A Pirate)

The new arrangement of Thin Red Line is so great, much better than in 2014...
Loved the thin red line. The whole concert was amazing and there is definitely a big difference between this and Hammersmith. TDK was completely amazing, absolutely loved the graphics, it was so clever and a great design. Can't wait to see it again next week. Think they have done a great job and should be proud - the set list works well.
So they dropped Green Card. It's the only one for which I don't mind :-)
Very nice to see they played "Stay" as well, the youtube video I saw ended after "No Time For Caution"! They definitely chose the strongest pieces from that movie, great selection.
trent easton navarro
Shame they dropped Green Card, love that score. Not a fan of the Electro Suite, other than that a very solid setlist. Looking forward to it!
Too bad Black Hawk Down is not here. I'm sure that could've fit.
OMG Hybrid you were right once again... The new arrangement of TTRL is just... amazing. Can't wait for next week, I hope the sound will be as good as in Wembley!
No Black Rain? Broken Arrow ? Injection or Nick and Masa from M:I-2 or Batman V Superman ? Damn it Hans.
Who ever is going to the Concert tonight, 06/04/2016. what was the list of songs played in the concert? or does anybody have the list?
And Ofcourse have a lot of fun ;)
Check out 'setlist.fm'.
I'm going tomorrow night!
Playlist exactly the same as HZ Revealed (+ Interstellar)
Opening (Miss Daisy, Sherlock Holmes, Madagascar) Crimson Tide Angels & Demons Gladiator DaVinci Code Lion King PotC Medley
True Romance Rain Man Man of Steel Thin Red Line Spiderman Batman Suite Interstellar
(it's just break, can't tell details about additional songs in 2nd half yet)
Also new compilation album announced this fall with re-recordings of Dark Knight, PotC, Gladiator, Interstellar etc with guest stars Lang Lang, Nigel Kennedy, Till Brönner, Lindsey Stirling, Amy Dickson and many more...
Nothing about The Last Samurai ? King Arthur ? :(
Additional info after the concert:
Dark Knight was extended with Aurora again, and there was no Despicable Me Song this time.
The same encore like in HZ Revealed.
No Last Samurai and no King Arthur, sorry ;-/
What a huuuuuge let down with Last Samurai. Actually a shame, he knew about the high demand for the last Samurai and he still hasn't considered it. There were also plenty of time to arrange everything, but no, tracklist hasn't changed even with the one of the revealed concert.
Sorry, but I'm very very upset
The thing is TLS just doesn't fit the concert... I mean, seriously, it's a rock concert, you would mostly get people sleep with about anything TLS, and I LOVE that score... lol
I totally agree with Hybrid Soldier! Yesterday I tried to imagine where TLS would fit into the whole playlist and the only Chance I found was at the very beginning, as Opener... but his current Opener is the way better choregraphed Alternative. So, to create the best Rock Concert experience - and it definitely is a Rock Concert - , TLS has no place.
By the way, in HZ Revealed in the Apollo Theater, I liked the first half a little better (from the sound mastering and sound Mix), in the 2nd half there was a little too much sound for this 'little' room. Now in the large arenas, the 2nd half is way better, the sound definitely rocks, because the playlist is definitely made for the very big Stage. I think the 2nd part even would fit into a Stadium. TLS is a great Soundtrack, but it would be the weakest part here.
@ Hybrid: I have to disagree. A rock concert with Lion King, Gladiator, The Thin Red Line and TDKR-Aurora? I don't think you can call it a rock concert with these choices. This argument doesn't work actually, especially with playing Aurora, which is the most sleepy cue ever from him.
And that TLS doesn't fit in the programm, i have to disagree aswell. Especially with having Tina Guo in there, this was a HUGE chance to play it and to blow everyone out with an emotional cue. If you don't want to play Small Measure of Piece, because it's sleepy, than make a suite with the heroic theme (which can be played a bit rock n roll style) and a solo part with an emotional piece of small measure.
It's just disappointing to see the same track-list as in the Reveal Concert, which looks more lazy then something that wouldn't have worked with the other tracks or style of the concert.
And especially after hearing the fans and their reaction that everyone would have wanted to hear last samurai, is again disappointing. It's not like we're seeing Zimmer many times, maybe it's his last Europe tour ever, and the first time after soooooooooooo many years. Many were looking forward to hear TLS, but sadly he chosed to ignore it.
Have to agree with Jane_Star: TLS would be as much of a fit as "Da Vinci Code" or "The Thin Red Line" for instance.
Not all pieces from that movie are sleepy. "Spectres In The Fog" could have easily fitted in.
But I wouldn't call it lazy. The "Revealed" shows were kind of a test. It worked well, so they are bringing this show to many more people across Europe. You don't have to consider it as a different concert.
I would have called it "lazy" if Interstellar hadn't been added, though :-p
Totally agree with Jane-Star ! If he plays The Thin Red Line , he may well also play The Last Samurai ! It's a shame ... Regarding Interstellar, what songs he plays ?
yup, have also to agree with others about tls. i can't understand that it shouldn't have worked in there when they play da vinci, thin red line, lion king, gladiator and aurora.
to call this choice "lazy" is indeed harsh, but i can understand what he/she is wanting to say with it. in the beginning this concert was advertised as a big concert, and that the revealed concert in comparisson was more like a private and so more rock influenced concert. with this europe tour it was told that we're getting the more bigger one blabla. what we're getting now is, oh well, the revealed concert again haha. and to shut some mouths, they've just put interstellar in there and that's it. so, they haven't really took their time to sit down and to work on something new, or hear the demand of last samurai. instead they just copied the track list what has already been played. to call this lazy, i don't know, but there could have been better choices for sure :)
btw, another tracklist from yesterday:
01. Driving / Discombobulate / Zoosters Breakout 02. Roll Tide / 160 BPM 03. The Wheat 04. Elysium 05. Now We Are Free 06. The Da Vinci Code (Specific song title unknown) 07. Circle Of Life / Under The Stars / Circle Of Life 08. Singapore / Mutiny / He's a Pirate
09. Main Theme (True Romance) 10. Main Theme (Rain Man) 11. What Are You Going to Do When You Are Not Saving the World? 12. Journey to the Line 13. You're That Spider Guy / Cold War 14. Why So Serious? / Fear Will Find You 15. Aurora 16. Cornfield Chase 17. Stay 18. Dream Is Collapsing 19. Mombasa 20. Time
Basejump, don't know where you found it, but this tracklist is fake, especially for the Pirates, Batman, Spider-Man and Interstellar ones.
And I can say that just by watching some videos on youtube.
Frenchans: it appears to be "Day One", "Cornfield Chase"... and FREAKING "NO TIME FOR CAUTION" !!!! :-)
Very good about Interstellar ! Anyone has the real playlist ?
For The Last Samurai, which Song would you have replaced from the playlist?
if you would ask me, than i would kick out The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Elektro) any time out for Last Samurai ^^
plus, if you look at hybrids track-list, then it would have worked out perfectly after the thin red line. after or before ttrl, no matter. these two scores are working beautifully together, even on a rock concert ;)
Thank you on the replies Awww… Wow little disappointed with the playlist. Was it the full orchestra or just small technical show with guests? How much would like to hear:- Rango Suite The last samurai: a Way of Life, a Hard Teacher, Ronin, Idyll’s End & The Way of the Sword (Hell the whole damn Album) Pirates of the Caribbean: The Kraken and Davy Jones & Two hornpipes (Tortuga) Batman begins: Molossus, Barbastella & Eptesicus TDK: I am Batman & Like a dog chasing Cars TDKR: Rise, Why do we Fall & Imagine the Fire Tears of the Sun & BVS remix of Beautiful Lie The Rock: Hummel gets the Rockets (opening scene) Man of steel: General Zod & Arcade
spiderman on the tracklist?? and then electro?? aweful choice sorry... spiderman has its moments, but would have prefered other scores like pearl harbor, king arthur, last samurai, tears of the sun, black hawk down...
@ Hybrid: you say last samurai has no place in a rock concert. but what has this techno music from spiderman to do in a rock concert?
@ Graham: never he would do a remix between BvS and Tears of the sun, because he would literally show the public how identical the themes are hrhrhr
To The Battlefield Red Warrior The Final Charge (2nd part) A Small Measure Of Peace (Ending)
A 12-15min suite with all those cues... I think as well, that those selections would have worked perfectly in this concert.
Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to the upcoming concerts and maybe Hans will play a special cue/suite for the German fans :) *fingers crossed*
Stop the drama about TLS, it's not there, it won't be there... I can name about 25 other things I wanted there which won't be... :P
Also missing: Rush.
Hybrid, if you say it's more like a rock concert, you would admit that "Rush" (the whole Japanese GP sequence, James Gets His Groove Back, .. ) has perfect material for such a concert...
1. We're frustrated, as we wished to hear that, and through you, our hopes got high that we can listen to it. We are aware now, that it isn't in the show, but don't tell people what they have to say or not. Let people exchange here their emotions and in this fact their frustration.
2. It's a difference what YOU wish and what MANY want. you're ONE person, while in this case with TLS there are MANY people asking for just ONE wish. i think with TLS it was also a symbol for all the other scores which hasn't been considered in the track-list. it would have been a fan-listening, but like said, this opportunity hasn't been considered. who knows, maybe he never heard about the high demand of it. have you really told him, that so many would have wanted to hear it?
trent easton navarro
Disappointed too see so many people bitching about the setlist.
How many film composers do you know who go on a massive tour like this? We all should be glad Hans is touring in the first place.
Sure, there are things on the setlist I don't care about and like Hybrid said, I could think of at least 25 scores I'd like to hear (Green Card, Broken Arrow and The Peacemaker to name a few). But it's a solid setlist that features films from all periods of Zimmer’s career. I for one can't wait to see this concert in Rotterdam!
But first Brian Tyler in London next month :D
Despite the absence of some major pieces, in my opinion it's a good playlist.
But I think he should propose a survey to get an overview of what is expected by fans.
It's an AMAZING setlist. I remember the sheer happiness I felt in London in 2014. Stuff may be missing, but it's a damn awesome experience. The quality level is so high that I trust Hans and his team if they chose not to include certain scores.
The purpose is to see Hans performing live and enjoy a great show. Not to hear every single Zimmer score performed live :-)
Hong long does the show/concert last? Thanks.
Count 2h30 with the intermission.
lol @ the idiots crying about tls, give me a fucking break. It's not even that memorable. The best parts were reworked into batman begins. He's not going to play it.
Lol @ bro who arrives one full week after the last complaint, brings it up and asks for a "fucking break".
