Never heard of Hans Zimmer before? Then you need to dig yourself out from the rock you’re living under. Chances are very good that you would have heard some of his work in the past. He’s the man who brought you the fantastic score for The Lion King, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Interstellar, Gladiator, Inception, Blade Runner 2049, The Ring and many more movies. In fact, he’s composed for over 150 movies to date. He’s also dipped his toes in the world of video games.
The first video game he composed for was Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in 2009 and has since worked on Crysis 2, Skylanders and FIFA 19. Come the early hours of Friday morning, 3.30 am SA time, he’ll be performing live at The Game Awards in Los Angeles. Expect him to tackle some classic numbers and for the hair to raise on your body as he’s doing it. We have a feeling it’s going to be something special.
Geoff Keighley confirmed this special guest on his Twitter account.
