Legendary film composer Hans Zimmer announces first-ever tour

The European trek kicks off next April at London's SSE Arena


After decades of iconic soundtracks and scores, legendary German composer Hans Zimmer has finally announced his first-ever tour.

The European trek kicks off next year on April 16th at London’s SSE Arena and continues for 17 more dates before wrapping up in Bulgaria on May 16th at Sofia’s Stadthalle.

“Performing a tour like this is something that I have always wanted to do, and I am thrilled that the time has finally come,” Zimmer explains in a press release. “I am very excited to get some of my very talented friends together and give our audiences an experience unlike any concert they have ever been to before.”

In 2014, Zimmer sold out two nights at London’s Hammersmith Apollo, where he shared the stage alongside guests Johnny Marr and Pharrell Williams.

Zimmer has previously scored the works of several veteran filmmakers, from Ridley Scott to Christopher Nolan to Barry Levinson. Here’s an abbreviated list: Inception, Gladiator, Interstellar, 12 Years a SlaveThe Dark Knight trilogy, The Lion King, Rain Man, The Thin Red Line, et al.
