“Performing a concert series like this is something that I have always wanted to do, and I am thrilled to kick off these west coast dates, visit Australia and return to Europe where we had so much fun playing in the summer.” said Zimmer. “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.”

At last, Hans will reveal a collection of his finest scores to a live audience.”
