Movie fans know the music of Hans Zimmer thanks to blockbusters like “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “The Dark Knight” and “The Lion King” featuring his scores. Fans in the Dallas area will get a special chance to hear his scores and other musical creations live when he comes to the Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie on July 13. Tickets for this special concert event are on sale now here through AXS.

Hans Zimmer started out his career in the ‘70s working in new wave bands and reaching limited success before he started to write and conduct film scores in the ‘80s. Some of Zimmer’s early work included “Moonlighting” and “My Beautiful Laundrette.” His career really took off when he scored “Rain Man” and “Driving Miss Daisy,” two movies that won Oscars for Best Picture. Hans Zimmer finally won his own Academy Award for his score to “The Lion King” in 1994.

The Hans Zimmer tour this summer will play shows in the United States, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. The concerts themselves are broken up into two sections, the first being classical movie scores and the second as re-imaginings of classic scores with guests from the pop and rock world.
