Hans Zimmer’s interest in music began early when he moved to the UK and met established film composer Stanley Myers where they collaborated on films such as My Beautiful Laundrette. In 1988, Hans’ solo work for Rain Man earned him his first Academy Award Nomination for Best Original Score.
From this point Hans has scored more than 120 films which have, combined, grossed over 24 billion dollars at the worldwide box office. He has been honored with an Academy Award®, two Golden Globes®, three Grammys®, an American Music Award and a Tony® Award. His most recent Academy Award nomination for Interstellar marks his 10th career Oscar nomination. In 2003, ASCAP presented him with the prestigious Henry Mancini Award for Lifetime Achievement for his impressive and influential body of work. He also received his Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2010. In 2014, Hans was honored with the Zurich Film Festival Lifetime Achievement Award.
The 2017 tour comes back by popular demand from the 2016 shows across Europe. The sell out shows were rapturously received by critics and the public alike. Incredibly in a Hollywood career that has spanned decades, these were Hans’s first full shows and were made even more special by the appearance of two of Zimmer’s collaborators guitarist Johnny Marr and Pharrell Williams.
Like the Hammersmith shows, ‘Hans Zimmer Live On Tour’ will be a visual spectacular designed and lit by the world-renowned lighting designer Marc Brickman. Marc has worked with everyone from Pink Floyd to Nine Inch Nails to Barbra Streisand and is responsible for the lighting of the Empire State Building in New York. The Hans Zimmer show will not only sound unlike any other it will also look unlike any other

So, what it looks like there's No Rain Man in the set, please bring Richard harvey back and rain man, please... so this new eustache Guy, known for Yanni performances and annoying waving in the air alot, i hope it's a temporary thing, why does he want to participate in every part. I got nervous.... If you seen the new opening: driving miss daisy, with a modified saxophone or something, you get something like: englishman in new york jazzy notes,..... i dont like iT, U see from everybody's body language That he is not accepted yet, Thx ...
He played Rain Man in L.A. and it was fantastic. Pedro is phenomenal.
Ok Thx for the info!
Hi Mk... I truly have no idea what you are talking about... Sorry you don't like me, but I am the winds soloist for the 2017 world tour. It is amazing that you do not find ANYTHING good in what I do [?]... just makes me wonder. And concerning "the band has not accepted him yet" you could not be more wrong [please ask the band members... they will tell you how they feel about me]. I see you have your preferences & I respect that, yet many others differ from your opinion. Anyhow, sorry, but I'm not "temporary thing" & I'm in for the whole tour... God bless you!
Mr. Eustache, it's really you? It's your first grand concert tour? What the difference between studio work and live shows?
Hi Michael, ...no, this is not my first "grand tour"... I did 11 years with Yanni [1995->2006], & beg. 2017 --before coming with Hans-- I did all six weeks of international tour with Ramin Djawadi's "Game of Thrones-Live"... I have toured with other artists from the international community [diva Persian super-star Googoosh, Alex Acuña, and others...] & as a guest to many other artists [Riadh Fehri-Tunisia; Ara Gevorgyan-Armenia; Michel Fadel-Lebanon, etc.]. In live performance we have a direct connection with the audience... recording in the studio is a completely different dynamic... yet my reality is the same in both: I play with all my heart for the Creator of the universe--live or in the studio--that remains the same!
Well, you always get a second chance of course. Good luck!
No in my opinion it's not the true pedro eustache just a person behind his screen :) but I like the style of pedro and I hate to hear it live in Paris because I like what it does :)
Less = more, Hans doesn't need improvised jazz notes added in driving miss daisy and so on.. they we're never there in the first place, this player feels most of the time as a fall by the wayside......
Pirates. Has gone Well in las Vegas, Ok it Will go better and better in time...
i do like the Dudok, Thats not what i Saïd ... the point is always trying to find More notes in the theme/ part he must play, You can't. Push iT to much...... Thats not Hans zimmer's philosophy, A. Fifth wheel on. A car. We shall see it's not easy to do a new tour........ "creator of the universe. God". There's No such thing. As god, Or. Actually Hè is standing on the podium. Called. Hans!
Well here is my last response... this is beyond absurd... & I feel Mr MK is somebody with a weird agenda posing as a fan. Yes, I AM THE REAL PEDRO EUSTACHE [not somebody "posing" for me] & I truly think this is useless... specially with people impossible to exchange honest, constructive opinions with... Please, whoever MK is, please, before you "tear me down" do your homework, & check out what God has blessed me with [yes, even if you don't believe in him, he is real tome... WHEN I ALMOST COMMITTED SUICIDED AFTER MY DAUGHTER—THREE-YEARS OF AGE— DIED OF BRAIN CANCER, JESUS SAVED MY LIVE, SIR!! YES, HE IS THAT REAL TO ME... IN SPITE OF YOUR MOCKERY & DISRESPECTFUL SARCASM... you might be surprised… I have composed & performed a 47 minute long, 12 movement concerto for 21 solo wind instruments of the world with Mtro. Gustavo Dudamel & his extraordinary orchestra, for example, in which I perform Raga Todi in a unique 15-hole bansuri built by myself, or when I mix a fugue Bach-style with Spanish “Bulería” Flamenca, or use a “mirror-form” in the Armenian piece in which the actual musical orchestral score—literally!—‘draws’ the silhouette of mount Ararat, the symbol of Armenia, or a 21/8 piece for the Easter-European section that starts with 12 upright basses slapping & doing ‘pizzicato Bartok’, or etc… you get the picture!!…] or recording three times with Mtro John Williams [missed the fourth time just now: “Star Wars VIII” due to being in world tour w Hans,,, (recordings where in May 2 & 4)—besides MANY other movie scores with Hans, John Powell, John Debney, James-Newton Howard, etc... or building more than 100 instruments, including unique instruments that nobody else in the world has, after doing research in acoustics with highly specialized Ph, D’s in flute & wind acoustics like Dr. John Coltman & Dr. Peter Hoekje, for example… & etc, ETC… My point: this is ridiculous!! I do not have to defend myself from such absurdity... Ah, forgot to mention: I just finished a 242 pages long book on "How to Write our Own Cadenzas in Mozart Style", or my studies of “Musical Phenomenology” with Mtro Markand Thakar--disciple of the genius Sergiu Celibidache--or that I have more than 7 years of Symphonic experience, studied Indian classical music with luminaries like Pnd Ravi Shankar—yes, THE legendary, iconic, irreplaceable & historic Ravi Shankar!— & Pndt. Hariprasad Chaurasia... but wait... I'm wasting my time!!… Mr MK might not even know who these geniuses are!… He just thinks I am a "jazz player”… such rubbish!! …And concerning your mockery of the Creator, please do not make public your ignorance in such an obvious way... THE GREATEST MUSICIAN IN ALL HISTORY: J.S. BACH SAID THAT MUSIC EXISTS TO "GLORIFY GOD & TO SUBLIMATE THE HUMAN SOUL'... but of course, you might not even know who J. S. Bach is… So, I will refrain from honoring your absurdly useless, empty, & strangely biased criticism... And no, sorry, I love Hans, BUT HE IS NOT GOD... He is a wonderful human being with great talent & wonderful heart... Only God is GOD--whether you believe on Him or not--May GOD BLESS YOU sir!! I will not waist more of my time in this... Blessings to all!!
Well i'm sorry for your loss,........ Mr Eustache, there's nothing you could do.
i Don't know If your real or not real, anyone with any name can write whatever he wants... on this forum..... I Don't know why you want to confront yourself with fans, it's something i would never do. Also this looks like a copy paste situation from pedroflute.com/
I never known you had a impressive career, cheers for that...... i Will gladly take in an in depth look......surely the talent is there.....
But as a hans zimmer fan i would n't take a quick tempered character who believes in god, i'm sorry... i wish you good luck though, i'll c u soon,..
So everybody can see> this person writing as Pedro eustache is mentally ill. This is not normal. Behaviour. I would say, ....
Anyone else saw his Coachella performance? He absolutely brought the house down.
I seriously wish he would release the versions of music he re-wrote. ESPECIALLY Like a dog chasing cars. That was fucking epic.
I still listing to it now, as it still can. I hope they release more parts of the show then only Inception. Go now further listin to the HD Quality :D
Yeah, it's true! By the way, anybody knows, who are two new amazing violinists in Hans's band?
Brunette is Leah Zeger, and the redhead is Molly Rodgers.
If you want the band setting :
On the back : Aicha Djidjelli - Nathan Stornetta - Nick Glennie-Smith - Satnam Ramgotra - Gary Kettel - Steve Mazzaro - Czarina Russell - Holly Madge
Front : Andy Pask - Leah Zeger - Molly Rodgers - Tina Guo - Nile Marr - Hans Zimmer - Yolanda Charles - Guthrie Govan - Pedro Eustache - Andy Page (and singers : Lebo M & Refi Sings)
There where Some faults here and there, i miss Richard Harvey though, Will hè come back for the european shows? I watched the show already 4 times. ,
I get nervous and almost hyperventilating from the the new player Dudok Guy, Playing the flute, man can someone tel HIM to slow down a bit, he wants to have alot of attention to himself, pushing too much...
People talked about Tina Guo and Rusanda Panfili being sexy, but Holly Madge...she is something else too.
Hi everyone, I would to ask to people who were present at the last year tour if there were some possibility to meet Hans (make a photo or some fan stuff with him). I really want to meet him and tell him how much I admire his work to the world film. :) thx, greetings from Czech Republic.
Èau já tam loni byl a ta možnost nìjak nebyla....možná na jiném místì - ale zrovna v O2 arénì tìžko.
Im not gonna ask about releasedates and stuff about the DVD/BluRay but what is the underlying process of this DVD/Bluray?
Part of the tour was a plan to film in one location (Prague) and release a DVD/Bluray for it? A studio was approached (Eagle Rock?) to film it and edit it? Did Hans want a DVD/Bluray or is it purely commercial? As well as will it have interviews/background etc or merely the show itself.
Would love to hear what you know about that project and what you want/can to share!
I don't know much to be honest. Even though we did film a lot of backstage things (which we put some of it in our various videos during the last tour), I have no idea what their plans with that material is, nor when they actually intend to release what they shot in Prague.
It's very blurry, they will tell you it WILL happen without giving any specifics or details. Maybe the new tour changed their plans, but they apparently thought about it very early after the last tour ended... Sorry I don't have much information, I'm just like you there... :)
Alright, thanks alot for your response, lets all wait and see what happends, loved the short backstage youtube's you guys made during the last tour.
What about the Wembley recording, what's happened to that? We were able to download the opening medley from the Dropcard and was told the rest would become available, was also told in June it was being worked on to be finished. Has that been shelved now because of the new tour?
please can the Wembley audio recording be released, coming up to a year ago now, as stated was told in June it was being worked on to be finished, what's happened?
