INCREDIBLE! from Jake Richardson, 13/10/14
My favorite composer of all time! Played all the big blockbusters: Dark Knight, Man of Steel, Pirates of the Caribbean, Amazing Spider-man 2, Crimson Tide, Gladiator, The Thin Red Line to name but a few. Happy to hear a number of variations such as the Joker/Banes theme for Batman, a suite of scores from Pirates and the awesome Electro theme from Spider-man. A haunting memorial to those who died in the Aurora shooting and encore of Inception and Time finished the night perfectly.

Excellent from Debbie, 13/10/14
Great concert with some amazing movie themes, lovely surprise to have Pharrell appear for a couple songs too which really mixed it up, having the choir was fantastic and really made the music.

Maestro! from Diana Alves Costa, 13/10/14
What a concert! I loved every minute of it. Mr. Zimmer can do no wrong. From The Thin Red Line to Inception, the Lion King and the tribute to the Aurora victims... I couldnt keep my fingers and feet still. Although he didnt play anything from The Last Samurai, my favourite score, the show flowed perfectly and the ending with Time was just superb. Thank you so much for the experience!!

An absolute must watch from Ian Hulme, 13/10/14
Best concert of my life. Hans was an entertainer from opening to close, playing various instruments and giving us an insight into his past with his stories and shared music experiences. What a guy.

The most magical night of my life from Ijlal Hassan, 13/10/14
Hans Zimmer is my all time favourite composer so seeing him live in a concert for the first time was heavenly and feelings were beyond description. He played all his greatest hits accompanied by an amazing band of musicians. His concert tickets cannot be priced with money. I can willingly spend £1000 even if I have to.

The concert was incredible, the music enchanting and the light effects awesome and astonishing! I enjoyed also the location, cool and comfortable. The place is also easy to find from the tube station!

AWESOME... a word often overused, b... from kaf, 13/10/14
what a treat to have been to this concert... like reliving the highlights of great movies solidly for a few hours, but getting to see the talent behind it perform it right there in front of you. Hans relaxed & comedic commentary (though difficult to hear through the ongoing applause of the audience) revealed a great personality and appreciation for the team of artists around him. I now feel like a junkie though, wanting more and more... the music so adrenaline packed/emotional and uplifting, that when it finished I felt like my life had ceased to exist... if I could have a soundtrack written for my life... I know who Id want to compose it

I put this moment - here! from Alan OShea, 13/10/14
Now that the (star)dust has settled and I reflect back on an experience of a lifetime, a true moment of pleasure, I am in awe. Sometimes its hard to believe it actually happened. To be present at the final show of Before the Dawn, to witness what was an amazing performance by Kate Bush and company was an absolute privilege. I thought this would never happen. It did, and I am eternally grateful. A wonderful evening. Congratulations to all involved, on and off stage. You put on a brilliant show. You must be so proud. I will carry this memory for a long time. AOS

Amazing from Mrs D Bull, 13/10/14
Had a fantastic night at the Hanz Zimmer concert. Would highly recommend. The full orchestra with choir charged the atmosphere with an amazing quality sound. Fans of Dark Knight and Pirates of the Caribbean would love this.

Truly Epic!!!! from Karl and Joanne, 13/10/14
Once in a lifetime event to see Hans Zimmer and his band with an orchestra and choir backing them up composing and performing soundtracks from the greatest movies around. It gave us goosebumps to see and hear. Just amazing!!!

The greatest show I have ever exper... from Becky E, 13/10/14
I have been anticipating this ever since the dates were announced earlier this year. And HZ delivered beyond my wildest expectations. All musicians and special guests were fantastic. The show moved along at a great pace with a whole range of music and emotions; I laughed, I cried, I danced. HZ is a genius. I feel really privileged to have attended the show. Part of me is savouring the fact that it was a once-in-a-lifetime event... but the other part is screaming for HZ to do more of this, so that I can relive the whole thing!

UTTERLY BRILLIANT from Booch!, 13/10/14
Simply THE best live event Ive ever been to. Sure, Im a big Hans fan, but Ive been going to gigs/shows/etc for 20+ years. Ive been to small shows, big shows, festivals, classical concerts, you name it... This just blew everything out of the water. The number of musicians was astounding, the sound was immense. The spread of music he played touched all the major themes youd know immediately were his, sometimes without even realising Id bet. With a smattering of special guests, including Johnny Marr and Pharrell Williams, who also somehow managed to twist Hans arm to play his own song Happy with full orchestral accompaniment there was not a foot put out of place. Im still in awe of the drummer, who for me was the stand out musician. I laughed, I cried - which took me by surprise, I reminisced, felt like I was in the movies (if I closed my eyes) and just did not want it to end. I really hope the artists read these reviews. Hans, if you do... You HAVE to come back and do a tour of the UK!! The single downside to the whole evening, was not being able to hear the mans anecdotes clearly between tracks because the applause they received was just so loud! I can Ive with it, but the bits I did here made him sound very humble and clearly a very funny and likeable individual. Kudos all around, well worth it. I just hope he does more dates next time around the UK giving more people the chance to take it all in around the country. Such a shame Interstellar hasnt been released yet, Id have loved to have had a sneak at some of the forthcoming music from it.

MIND BLOWING CONCERT from Rua Luja, 13/10/14
Hans Zimmer & friends was the best concert I have experienced, an absolute outstanding musical whirlwind by all. The main man Himself Hans Zimmer was just a humble artist with endless talent! The orchestra, drummers, choir, violinist, guitarist, others, were all FANTASTIC! Hans Zimmer is just a talented LEGEND! I travelled all the way from Manchester to take my son (15) who is a massive fan and this was the best concert I have ever been to! Loved it !! I would travel a distance to watch hans Zimmer again!

Truly Awesome! from Alex, 13/10/14
This was just incredible. Great showman and the music was superb. Far better live than it could ever be on film. The reveal of more and more bans, orchestras and choirs was magic. I want to go again! The standing ovations in one night and he deserved every one.

A Magical, Inspirational, Emotional... from Kenny H, 13/10/14
Hans Zimmer took to the London Stage and he and his band/orchestra/choir singers delivered a magical performance that was a delight for our ears and even our eyes! This man is a master of his craft and his music is iconic and transforms the movies that he has scored into works of pure art. Delivering wonderful pieces from Crimson tide, The Lion King, Pirates of the Caribbean, Superman, The Dark Knight, The Thin Red Line etc... to name but a few! There was also special guest appearances from the artists who helped him including Lebo M who did the opening zulu vocals in the lion (A World First since they recorded the song back in the early 90s) and a very special appearance by the multi-talented Pharrell Williams who performed Happy with Hanss Orchestra and then proceeded to do Electro from the Amazing Spiderman 2. It was an absolutely wonderful night, one that I shall never forget! If Hans came back to do a concert tomorrow, I would be first in line to buy tickets!
