A message from the organiser:
BBC Studios and concert promoter FKP Scorpio UK have announced a further update to their previously rescheduled Planet Earth II Live In Concert arena tour of the UK & Ireland.
The original 2020 tour was previously postponed twice and rescheduled to March 2021 following government advice and the closure of venues across the UK, as part of the nationwide effort to combat the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Due to the continuing uncertainty regarding the unlocking of mass gatherings for arena events in the entertainment sector, it has been decided to reschedule the shows again to March 2022, a touring period which will provide greater optimism and safety for a return to normality. The health and safety of our audience is absolutely paramount.
Barry Campbell, the MD of promoter FKP Scorpio UK commented, “Due to the continuing uncertainty around indoor arena mass gatherings, we felt it was necessary to move our Planet Earth II Live In Concert tour once again to March 2022. We make these changes with a heavy heart but it is very important to us that the public should feel safe and be able to attend the shows without any safety worries. We promise it will be a fantastic tour well worth waiting for and thank all ticket purchasers for their patience and understanding in these most difficult times”.
These spectacular live concerts will be hosted by science and natural history TV presenter Liz Bonnin, with behind the scenes insights from Mike Gunton, the executive producer of the BAFTA and EMMY® award-winning BBC television series.
Featuring breath taking specially-selected footage shown in 4K ultra high-definition on a gigantic LED screen, the City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Matthew Freeman, will perform the remarkable music by Oscar winner Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea & Jasha Klebe for Bleeding Fingers Music.
Says host Liz Bonnin "2020 has been incredibly difficult for everyone and we are reeling from the impact of this pandemic. Our hope is that, once we begin to recover from this extraordinary situation, our tour can play a small part in offering joy, healing and optimism. It will be an uplifting experience, celebrating the majesty of life and all the beauty and wonder that Mother Earth has to offer. I'm all the more excited to be able to share it with you.”
All previously purchased tickets shall remain valid for these rescheduled dates.
