Watch Hans Zimmer melt minds with scores from The Dark Night and Inception at Coachella

One of the most surprising acts at this year’s Coachella bill was definitely Hans Zimmer – but fuck did the man bring it. CoS described his performance as “a distinct privilege to witness such a master in action,” and video footage of the set absolutely confirms this.

Hans Zimmer

Hans Zimmer is a goddamn rock star. Watch him melt minds with scores from The Dark Knight and Inception at Coachella.

His interpretations of the Dark Knight and Inception scores (which featured a full orchestra and band) were nothing short of transcendental and you can watch both below.

In the videos Zimmer performs a selection of material from The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, including Why So Serious?, Like a Dog Chasing Cars, and Bane Suite.

Also check out a two Inception tracks in the form of Dream is Collapsing and Mombasa, as well as music from the Pirates of the Caribbean.

Zimmer is touring here in May and you should probably buy tickets.
