Anyone knows if Hans create a dvd/bluray of this magnificent concert of 6th april??
There will be a live stream tonight (7/4/2016): htt ps://youtu.be/-4wCzTJL9Hg
Do you know at what time the stream will begin? Thanks!
Apparently there will be an album of 6th of April available to purchase from iTunes on 20th of April. Those who were at the gig, were given card to get a free download of opening medley. But when you type in the web address, info pops up about the whole show! And don't get too excited about streaming tonight - it's a fake. Don't bother.
Hi!! I have a question. Will be possible to get Hans's autograph (or photo with him) somewhere on the Live Tour 2016?
There are meet and great packages available. No idea whether they are on every concert or how much they all are. The Birmingham one is £205 + booking fees.
Don't know why code appeared, was supposed to say Two hundred and five pounds.
So, the only way how to see and talk with Hans (and get the autograph and stuff) is through those packages?
I can't say for certain as I really don't know. I'm sure someone with some knowledge would confirm. I can only guess that the package is the only way to get a guaranteed meeting with him. At concerts this big there is normally really tough security which keeps concert goers well away from the star.
Yea. I understand. Thank You anyway. The reason why I'm asking is 'cause a few days ago I was at a Simple Plan concert in Prague and after the concert the band came out of the hall and we were able to take photos with them and stuff.. But It's true, that Hans Zimmer is a kinda different type of musician, so I guess it's not going to be that easy..
I've always had a lot of luck with bands in small venues coming out afterwards. More times than not I've managed to meet them. These big venues have always been very different but they've been much bigger artists. I honestly can't see there being much luck of meeting him outside of the packages I'm afraid :/
I managed to pick up a signed poster from one of the London concerts. It was pre-signed and I have no idea who actually signed it or whether it was that autosign device. Am sure he is far too busy to sign a lot of posters.
Yeah, I completely agree. With bands in small venues it's always easier. There is better chance to meet them and talk to them somewhere... But the sort of big concerts where are nearly one hundred thousand fans... It's almost impossible. But we'll see. Maybe there will be some way how to meet Hans.
The thing with your poster, I don't think, it was autosigh device or so... I think, Hans does have some time to sign at least some of the posters. :-) For example look here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aD_qUAT-Muo
Does anyone know the approx length/finish time?
Except of special offers with meet and greet, on each concert, there are 5 random programs (15£, incl. download code for the recording of the concert some days later) signed by him. You need to be very lucky!
Will the show go on in Brussels still given recent events?
I guess, yeah... Johnny Hallyday has 2 shows this week-end at the same place, they have been maintained. They're just gonna up the security. I don't think Brussels is more risky than any other big city in Europe... these people are everywhere!
I am happy that he comes to Luxembourg. It will be great moment for me, because it is my favorite composer. Since over 25 years, i buy everything that he has composed or arranged. Not only soundtracks but also for special events or publicity. I try to find everything. I hope that he takes the time after the concert to sign some autographs. Hans du bist der beste und ganz Luxemburg wartet auf dich.
Any news about if and how and what Hans is including something from The Last Samurai in his programm? I hope the silence is not to calm everyone down and when it's to late to argue that he couldn't add something in the tour. we NEED to hear something from the Last Samurai. It would be a world premiere and one of his most beautifuls compositions!
