People Freaked Out When Hans Zimmer Dropped Some Lion King On Them At Coachella

Yahoo - Zimmer turned out to be the king of Coachella — unexpectedly upstaging other Sunday acts like 20-year-old Lorde and 29-year-old Kendrick Lamar, and attracting masses of millennials who practically openly wept and generally lost their minds over his performance. As a massive orchestra played Zimmer’s instantly recognizable movie scores (The Lion King, Inception, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Dark Knight, Gladiator — the veritable soundtrack of these raised-on-Netflix kids’ lives) under the desert stars, and as the show simultaneously live-streamed on YouTube, “Hans Zimmer” even became a trending topic on Twitter for several hours.

Absolutely awesome. They brought Hans Zimmer to perform at Coachella and he absolutely tore the house down. 2 weeks ago I blogged about how much I love movie scores and how I wanted to go see Hans Zimmer’s live show, and I guess I could not have been more right. The recipe for success seems to be take 30,000 20-30 year olds, hand them plentiful amounts of drugs and alcohol, and play the Lion King. I cannot imagine how hard those kids were tripping when Circle of Life started blasting while the lights were going crazy.

And not to mention he busted out all the hits. Pirates, Gladiator, Dark Knight, Inception. He melted minds out there.

Even Wonder Woman, whose score I’ve never heard, looks amazing. Must see type shit.

I’m scared to watch the full video of the Inception that I posted below because I want to see it for the first time when he comes to New York. No doubt I’ll be there. No doubt at all.

PS: Never change, white people. Never change.
