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.
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.
