The award-winning composer will now kick off his UK shows at Dublin’s 3Arena on March 20, 2022, followed by London’s O2 Arena on March 23, 2022 and Manchester Arena on March 24, 2022.
The rest of his European shows have also been moved to spring 2022. All original tickets will remain valid.
“As much as I would have loved to play live for you all across Europe next year with the Hans Zimmer Live band, our orchestra and choir, we have made the difficult decision to delay the tour until 2022,” Zimmer said in a statement.
“We are all convinced that this is the only way to offer you, as well as us, a great and safe live tour for everyone. See you in 2022!”

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that Hans Zimmer used FaceTime to oversee the recording of ‘Eclipse’, a cover of the Pink Floyd classic that the Dune composer arranged for the film.
The closing track to Pink Floyd’s ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ (1973), has been reimagined by Zimmer for Denis Villeneuve’s forthcoming adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel. Last month the first trailer for the sci-fi epic was released, soundtracked by Zimmer’s rendition.
