A new arena show featuring music from BBC natural history series Planet Earth II will go on tour from next Spring.
Planet Earth II Live in Concert will feature acclaimed composer Hans Zimmer’s music, performed by the City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, along with 4K ultra high-definition footage from the BAFTA and Emmy award winning series.
Hosted by science and natural history TV presenter Liz Bonnin, the tour will run from 26th March through 4thApril 2020 and includes a London Matinee show at 2.30pm on Sunday, 29th March.
Zimmer said. “Planet Earth II is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever been involved in: some of the greatest action scenes ever put on film, some of the most emotional, epic, fragile scenes I’ve ever witnessed. Filmmaking at its absolute peak.”
Bonnin added: “I am so honoured to have the role of host on the Planet Earth II Live in Concert arena tour.
“The TV series included some absolutely breathtaking sequences – who can ever forget the marine iguana fighting for its life as it escaped those racer snakes?
“I will be just as thrilled as the audience to relive such magnificent scenes on the giant screen, accompanied by a spectacular 80-piece orchestra – it will certainly be an experience to remember!”
Mat Way, Global Director of Live Entertainment at BBC Studios, said: “After the very successful Blue Planet II tour we are delighted to partner with FKP Scorpio once again and bring Planet Earth II Live In Concert to the UK & Irish arenas, an incredible production bringing the BBC’s ground breaking footage to the stage for fans to enjoy.”
