Hans Zimmer honours those who died in Grenfell Tower fire at emotional Wembley gig

He also vowed to donate all proceeds to those effected

Hans Zimmer paid tribute to London and those who died in the Grenfell Tower fire during at emotional gig at The SSE Arena Wembley. Check out footage and the setlist below.

Backed by Johnny Marr’s son Nile and an all-star orchestra, Zimmer delivered an epic 39-song set of soundtrack score songs from films including ‘Inception’, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’, ‘Gladiator’, ‘The Lion King’, ‘Interstellar’ and many more – as well as reuniting with Trevor Horn to perform The Buggles’ classic hit ‘Video Killed The Radio Star’.

“I don’t know how to not mention what happened yesterday,” Zimmer told the crowd before performing ‘Roll Tide’ from ‘The Crimson Tide’, “but when a tragedy happens you all pull together.”


Touched by how people had spent their “hard earned money to be here tonight,” Zimmer then vowed to give all of the proceeds from the show to those effected by the Grenfell Tower blaze. He then said “We are all London” while receiving a standing ovation.

In an evening where he also paid tribute to the victims of the London and Manchester terror attacks, as well as sharing fond memories of the late Heath Ledger, Zimmer also did right on once being too ‘grumpy in the middle of a movie’ to join The Buggles on stage and run through ‘Video Killed The Radio Star’.
