Dubai: The multiple Academy Award-winning, renowned German composer, Mr. Hans Zimmer, will bring his breath-taking new European tour Hans Zimmer Live to Dubai in January 2023. The composer is the creator of some of the most iconic soundtracks in movie history.

The Hans Zimmer Live show has been performing to sold-out crowds with newly arranged music from his most well-known compositions. This music includes hits from The Lion King, Gladiator, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Dune, the 2021 Academy Award-nominated science-fiction epic filmed in Abu Dhabi. Fans throughout the Middle East will now be able to take part in this musical event for the first time.

The special one-off concert showcasing two and a half hours of brand-new and reimagined arrangements from the Oscar-winning composer’s illustrious back catalogue will be held at Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena on January 27, 2023. Mr. Zimmer will perform the arrangements live on stage with a large orchestra and his incredible live band, along with dancers.

The Dubai Department of Economy and Tourism (DET) is bringing Hans Zimmer Live to the UAE as part of its Dubai Presents series. It will be one of the final performances of the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF), which takes place all across the City from December 2022 to 29 January 2023.

I’m thrilled to bring Hans Zimmer Live to Dubai for the very first time. As one of the world’s most exciting and dynamic cities that’s home to over 200 nationalities, this is a great opportunity to speak to a multicultural global audience in the universal language of music. It seems fitting to bring our show to such an extraordinary city, and treat its people to an unforgettable evening of music and entertainment.

Mr. Hans Zimmer commented.

Meanwhile, Mr. Issam Kazim, CEO, of Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing, observed that, “Hans Zimmer is one of the all-time music greats and it’s an honour that Dubai will be the first place in the Middle East to host his renowned live show. Hosting this concert further reinforces Dubai’s position as a global events hub for award-winning international artists to perform and we will continue to work with our stakeholders to further enhance our event offerings in line with the vision of His Highness, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai the best place in the world to live in and work. We very much look to welcoming Hans Zimmer and his orchestra to Dubai next January for what will be an incredible concert.”
