Zimmer played 34 tracks on the first date of his North American tour.

Legendary composer Hans Zimmer kicked off his first-ever North American tour with an amazing 34-song performance that spanned the composer’s entire 40 year career.

Zimmer is the musical mastermind behind some of the most revered film scores of our time including Gladiator, The Dark Knight trilogy, Inception, The Lion King and Interstellar.
