New for 2017, SSE Arena Wembley will host London Tech Week’s celebratory concert, featuring a live performance from Grammy and Oscar award winning film score composer, Hans Zimmer. As part of his global tour, Hans will incorporate the latest lighting and digital technology into his show to provide a striking visual concert experience.
Hans will be joined by his 15-piece studio band and choir to perform some of his most famous film score classics, including the Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lion King, Gladiator, Inception and a Dark Knight. Hans is a pioneer of technology and his method of integrating electronic music with traditional orchestral arrangements is now his signature sound. Tickets for this event can be purchased here.
Harvey Goldsmith CBE, Concert producer, promoter and London Tech Week ambassador, added: “London Tech Week is clearly becoming an important attraction for London. We are delighted to be working with London Tech Week by presenting Hans Zimmer Live at the SSE Wembley Arena on Thursday June 15th 2017. Hans has always been at the forefront in the drive to utilise new technology in music and is honoured to be associated with London Tech Week.”
Russ Shaw, founder of Tech London Advocates, comments: “London Tech Week is an opportunity to show the international tech community the wealth of talent, innovation and investment returns available in London’s digital sector. After three years of success, the festival is set to be bigger and better than ever in 2017, sending a clear message that London tech is open for business, aiming for significant growth and brimming with ambition.”
The iconic Alexandra Palace will stage the UK’s first professional drone race during London Tech Week 2017. The world’s premier race organizers, The Drone Racing League (DRL), will bring the elite race series to London as their championship event on 13th June. The event will be the first of its kind race in London, and the Sky Sports Mix broadcast will allow millions of fans across Ireland, Italy and the UK the opportunity to see some of DRL’s leading pilots race FPV (first person view) drones at speeds in excess of 90 mph drones around Alexandra Palace.
