Legendary Hollywood composer Hans Zimmer is touring Australia in October

What do the following films have in common: The Lion King, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Blade Runner 2049, Inception, Rain Man, Gladiator and Pirates of the The Caribbean?

They are all bona fide classics, of course, but a better answer is that they were all scored by legendary Hollywood composer Hans Zimmer.

Zimmer, who has won Grammy, Golden Globe and Academy Awards, will arrive in Australia in October for arena shows to be held in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

Here’s how a reviewer from The Independent described a 2017 version of the show:

“While the likes of John Williams would stand before an orchestra, conducting proceedings, Zimmer marches around the stage with a guitar in hand, playing side-by-side with other members of the incredibly talented band…

The songs, of course, are incredible themselves, but are given new life by the immense performance. Tracks from Gladiator come early, pulsating through the hall and leaving goosebumps. Circle of Life from The Lion King leaves the audience stunned.”
