  • I loved it and I’m a big fan of Hans Zimmer.
  • Only thing wrong was the spotlight that couldn't be turned off unfortunately
  • The musicians were amazing. Unfortunately the fact that the zoos spotlight was on the entire show and they couldn't turn it off made the ambiance suffer.
  • Great experience, spotlight was on the whole performance though but great experience overall
  • Great music and venue. Technical issues are understandable, but for a “candlelight” concert, there should have been a way to turn off the spotlight that took away from the experience and ambiance.
  • The seats were super uncomfortable but the show was so amazing! They had some technical difficulties with the lights but it was still amazing! 10/10
  • I wish the Zoo had turned off the stage light so we could’ve gotten the full experience
  • We had a great time listening to The Best of Hans Zimmer! My only critique would be for the host to opt for an indoor venue as there was a dust storm rolling in. The musicians’ mics were picking up the wind and some of the candle went rolling onstage.
  • If only the spot light would have turned off then I could have experienced the true atmosphere of a candle light show! The 4 string quartet was excellent though.
  • Wish it was louder for the back
