Zimmer is also scheduled to perform during the second weekend of Coachella on Sunday, April 23. These two festival dates are part of his career-spanning “Hans Zimmer Revealed” tour.

“Performing a concert series like this is something that I have always wanted to do, and I am thrilled to kick off these west coast dates, visit Australia and return to Europe where we had so much fun playing in the summer,” Zimmer said in an official statement when the tour was announced. “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.”
