Hans Zimmer and Johnny Marr perform eight-minute medley of The Dark Knight Trilogy score — watch

The German composer is currently performing across Europe amid his first tour

    Hans Zimmer might be done scoring superhero films, but he’s certainly open to performing them. On Wednesday night, the legendary German composer tipped off his first proper tour at London’s The SSE Arena, where he entertained the crowd with various selections of his iconic scores.

    Naturally, he revisited his work on Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy. For eight minutes, Zimmer, alongside guitarist Johnny Marr, conjured up the pulsing, frantic, and sweeping beats that helped turn Gotham City into an unpredictable war zone, and fortunately for you, some fan captured all of it to hear.

    Below, you can stream the performance, shake your head at the crazy setlist, and revisit our recent interview with the maestro. Us Americans will just have to keep our fingers crossed that he does something similar stateside.
