The concert was filmed on 7 May 2016, during a hugely successful European tour. Zimmer was accompanied by a band, orchestra and choir – 72 musicians in total – including guitarist Johnny Marr. The staging included a ground breaking light show, stunning visuals and a state of the art sound system. Zimmer himself performs on multiple instruments and gives introductory insights to many of the pieces during the concert.
Zimmer’s multi-award winning career reaches back to the mid-’80s and he has developed close working relationships with renowned directors such as Ridley and Tony Scott, Michael Bay, Ron Howard, Gore Verbinski and Christopher Nolan.
His credits also include some of the most acclaimed TV series, such as The Crown and Planet Earth II.
