The man who wrote the themes for ‘Gladiator’, ‘The Lion King’, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ and of course ’80s quiz show ‘Going for Gold’, Super Hans finally gets his chance next year to say ‘hello, Wembley’. Zimmy and his ensemble mingle orchestral, rock and electronic elements, and he’s second only to John Williams when it comes to crowd-pleasing, roof-raising film music, so count on all the old favourites. Personally we’re hoping to hear ‘Muppet Treasure Island’.
Hans Zimmer and Clint Mansell: find out who’s the soundtrack supremo.

It was so loud, it was painful. 6 electric guitars and four drum kits, if you want to be literally blown away with excessive noise, this is the gig for you. I would've preferred Guns n' Roses though. At best, it was cheesey, at worst, my ears were assaulted.
Like Patty rightfully said, the acoustics in the SSE Arena were somewhat of a let down. Also, in my opinion, although the drummer was extremely talented, the drumming was excessive. I'm a big fan of Hans and I wanted to listen to the subtle sound of strings, brass and so on. After all, he's iconic for his melodic prowess. I'm being generous with 4/5, I think the finale of the show restored my admiration for him.
Hans Zimmer and his ensemble are very talented, for sure. Let down by the acoustics of Wembley Arena and the volume / balance mix... otherwise it would have been Five Stars. I would have loved to have heard the Crouch End Choir and some of the lead musicians over the wall of amplification. Mr Zimmer, please book The Royal Albert Hall next time.
Well what to say. the minute the concert ended I just wanted to redo it all again. Hard to go to a live concert and be given so much by one artist and his amazing band of musicians. Hair raising, emotional, powerful, enthralling, uplifting, poignant and ultimately satisfying. Angels and demons 160bpm was just mesmerising. Crimson tide and dark knight bombastic. Thin red line was hypnotizing. Zimmer also took time to talk to his audience. Felt I got to know the man behind the legend. A night I will never forget. Please Mr Zimmer come back to the UK soon. Legend. Vij from Leeds
I've been to many many hundreds of gigs. From huge names in massive venues to legends in intimate gigs playing to select audience. The performance last night from Hans Zimmer was by far the most incredible I have ever had the pleasure of witnessing.
From disturbing darkness to desperate love, passion, anarchy, angst, solitude, and elation. Zimmer's spanning talent left the audience deeply, emotionally effected.
Simple, yet stunning stage production reduced me to breathlessness. World class musicians playing such a tightly connected set list, they could not hide their unabashed joy. A choir so intense they gave you endless chills.
London was left in awe.
Zimmer is in a class of his own.
