Find yourself humming some tracks from The Lion King? That’s a Zimmer. Blaring out the horn-filled soundtrack of Christopher Nolan’s Inception? You best believe that’s a Zimmer. Now, for the first time ever in the UK, Zimmer will be performing a concert series in the UK. “Hans Zimmer Revealed” will play October 10th and 11th at the Eventim Hammersmith Apollo in London, and will feature both classic movie scores alongside re-imagined movie scores with special guests from the halls of rock and pop music.
