Hahaha this is just crazy, I am delighted to see how well this tour is doing. Are some shows sold out already?
The 2 shows in Paris are sold out, so they even added one at 14:00 on the sunday (2 the same day !).
One show added to Graz in Austria as well !
That's amazing! In Brussels it is not sold out yet, but almost. It's pissing me off, it sells well so they keep adding more and more rows in the front category, so proportionally my seats are getting further and further from the stage...
Any idea how long is the show gonna last, how many hours? I'm guessing 2 hours. I just bought the early show in Paris on 24 april. I'll be getting there a few days before the show, but I could leave the city the same day if I go to airport around 6PM, I'm not sure If I'll have the time that's why I'm asking. Thanks.
Count on something between 2h and 2h30 :-) It was like that in London at least.
I really wish a concert somewhere in Baltic States please, my mother really wish to attend to this concert, and I want to buy her a ticket as a present on Christmas or simply as a present for mother that really wish to see things that normally we can't because of financially it's not enough.
Poland is closest, I know, but to get there from Latvia is so difficult for her, and it will get costly for her, but all I want is a ticket for her, and it's easier with a bus to get around Baltic States, and more cheaply. I'm only 21, I still don't have my own vehicle, but I do have a license. If I had my own car, it wouldn't be a problem. I just really wish to get her a ticket, but to get from here to any country outside is difficult, she knows only Russian language as foreign language, barely English too, but it wont do the trick to get her home or anything.
So please, try to consider making appearance somewhere in Baltic States, would be perfect in Latvia as a middle country, or maybe somewhere on west side of Russia, same Moscow maybe.

Bought tickets off worldticketshop.com for the Paris show. Can someone please put my mind at ease and assure me they are legit! I know I may freaking out for no reason but I just want there to be no problems
Do so hope he plays something from Last Samurai - hopefully Safe Passage or Idyll's End - but anything will be wonderful.
oh hell yes, my favorite would be small measure of peace. but anything of last samurai would be epic!
I totally agree. Sadly, The Last Samurai (as well as other scores from the same period such as King Arthur, Pearl Harbor or Spirit) was missing from the Hans Zimmer Revealed concerts last year.
The "Revealed" show was mostly addressed to die-hard fans like us, who knew everything from Hans' career. But this European tour will attract many casual listeners... and I think most of them are in love with The Last Samurai and they really expect to hear it live (much more than The Amazing Spider Man 2 for instance).
I hope our contact (aka Hybrid Soldier) is somehow able to pass the word to Hans' ears :-p
Would love to hear small measure of peace performed
i hope not to hear any techno sound-experiments like on spiderman. last samurai? awesome! thin red line? awesome! gladiator? awesome! pearl harbor? awesome! lion king? awesome!
i loved also the 'naya & ethan' cue from mi2, which was played in gent.
as for the newer scores, inception (time), interstellar, dark knight,...
will there be a release of the list which will be played in the concerts? and anyone know how long this will be?
You will know the list right after the first concert :-p
I guess there won't be much changing compared to last year.
We dont need much change because it was already amazing. I just hope for a little extension :-p
a little change is needed. no one wants to hear spiderman. small measure of peace from last samurai would be indeed very intersting to hear. but maybe it's too difficult to play it live for zimmer?
and like Ds said, an extension would be great :)
The thing is Spidey 2 is even advertised on the HZLive website... So I doubt they'll remove it...
Of course they'll keep it and honestly TASM2 is a great score imo, and the live performance was so cool. I guess it is also really fun to play. I'm glad they'll keep that one!
So, yeah, obviously you're wrong that "nobody wants to hear spiderman" :p
Well know that Hans is aware of the Last Samurai request... Doesn't mean it'll happen, but he knows ! lol
Hahahaha Hybrid you just made my day!! I think Hans is a really nice guy, he'll figure it out! :-)
Yes yes yeeeees! Now this would be the climax of the concert!!! Thank you Hybrid for speaking for us, i reaaaally hope he puts in Last Samurai in the programm. Crossing the fingers....
Thanks Hybrid, you're the man! Very curious if it works out :)
- Opening Medley (Driving Miss Daisy (Theme) / Sherlock Holmes (Discombobulate) / Madagascar 2 (Rescue)) - Crimson Angel (Medley Crimson Tide (Roll Tide) / Angels & Demons (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) / Green Card (Instinct) - Man Of Steel (What Are You Going To Do) - The Thin Red Line (Journey to the Line) - Spider Man 2 (Elektro) - The Dark Knight Medley (Joker / Like A Dog Chasing Cars / Moody Bruce / The End) - Inception Medley (Dream Is Collapsing / Mombasa / Time)
That was it... :)
You know, as I was there I discussed with the musical director Peter Asher and as he said and everyone can understand it, you can't put everything or please everyone !
But really, even if it could be difficult (Organ...), adding Interstellar MUST be done !! lol
Surprised The End was performed in Dark Knight medley, thought Rise would have been that's the best from TDKR soundtrack, imo
agree that Interstellar should be added
"The End" was actually "Aurora", I think. It was playing in the background while Hans gave a speech about the events of Aurora.
I agree that you can't put everything, but I'm pretty sure much more people know The Last Samurai than Green Card for instance.
Anyway it's pointless to argue as it's not going to change anything... unless Hans is reading it, in that case I'll continue to speak about King Arthur/Last Samurai all day long :-p
Well I've been inceptioning him with Rush for over a year, but that's probably not gonna happen either... lol
Rush would sound amazing, and i dont think it would be too difficult to plan as only a rock section is needed.... i dont see why Hans would disagree :-p
I would love to hear some of his compositions for big orchestra, e.g. Marry Me Suite, Prince of Egypt, King Arthur. Those would make great in a show like this. HZ Revealed was more of a Rock/Pop compilation.
I so agree, Rush live would be amazing! "Lost But Won" and "1976"especially.
Also, along side Rush I think the King Arthur soundtrack is too good not to be played live! Anything from the score would be amazing.
I'm still hoping that Hans will play the complete score of The Thin red Line (including bootlegs, especially bootlegs !). I know I'm dreaming... :D
Seriously, Hans, forget TASM2 or Driving Miss Daisy. Remember the violin in Daniel's 9th Cipher, the choral in On the Road !
Hybrid: How about a Poll for the Fans? Hans loved involving his fans, just like in TDKR, and here he can listen to the fans what should be played. As its hard to choose which cue it should be played, the option would be instead which movie should be played. Let's say the 10 movies with the most votings, should be played then live.
It would be seriously a shame, if Last Samurai and King Arthur would not have a chance to be presented.
And time should be enough to prepare something new...
