Due out November 3rd on DVD, Blu-ray, 2CD, 4LP set and Deluxe Edition, Live in Prague documents Zimmer’s May 7th, 2016 performance featured Zimmer fronting a 72-piece ensemble that included the Czech National Symphonic Orchestra, a mixed choir and the Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, who collaborated with Zimmer on the scores for Inception and Amazing Spider-Man 2.
In a recent Rolling Stone interview, Zimmer revealed it was Marr who convinced him to leave the studio and finally hit the road.
“I had Johnny Marr and Pharrell,” Zimmer recalled. “I remember sitting on my couch, and I think they were sitting either side of me, and saying, ‘Come on Hans. You gotta get out of this room. One of these days, you have to look your audience in the eye. You not only have to look them in the eye, but in a funny way, you have to sort of say ‘thank you’ to them.'”
Live in Prague finds Zimmer leading selections from throughout his decades-long career, including medleys dedicated to his scores from the Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception, Interstellar, Pirates of the Caribbean, Gladiator and The Lion King.
The concert film will also receive a one-night-only theatrical release in October, although the exact date has not been announced.
