Hans Zimmer is to perform music he has composed for hit films including The Lion King and Gladiator at a series of live shows in the UK.
The Grammy, Golden Globe and Oscar-winning composer will perform his first ever concerts in the UK, with music from his well-known scores including Pirates Of The Caribbean, The Dark Knight Trilogy and Inception, Collider reported.
Hans said: "Performing a concert series like this is something that I have always wanted to do, and I am thrilled that that time has finally come. I am very excited to get some of my very talented friends together and give our audiences an experience unlike any concert they have ever been to before."
Hans Zimmer Revealed will run from October 10-11 at the Hammersmith Apollo in London, presented by Harvey Goldsmith.
Hans will be accompanied by a band of brilliant players mixing traditional orchestral instruments with rock and electronica, and will be joined by a few surprise special guests.
"I am honoured to have the opportunity to present Hans's concert series," stated Goldsmith. "Hans is a genius of our time, having thrilled millions of cinema goers with his amazing film scores. At last, Hans will reveal a collection of his finest scores to a live audience here in London."
