Following the success of the recent Blue Planet II Live In Concert tour, producers have today announced that ‘Planet Earth II Live in Concert‘ will embark on an 8-date UK and Ireland arena tour in Spring 2020.
The concerts will feature breathtaking, specially-selected footage shown in 4K Ultra HD on a gigantic LED screen, with the City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Matthew Freeman, playing the series’ remarkable score by Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea and Jasha Klebe for Bleeding Fingers Music.
The Planet Earth II Live in Concert arena tour will be hosted by science and natural history TV presenter Liz Bonnin.
In this spectacular, audiences across the UK get to rub shoulders with our acrobatic primate cousins in the steaming jungles of Madagascar, race alongside fearsome hunting lions in the remote sandy deserts of Namibia, face stormy Antarctic seas with a family of penguins and feel the raw tension as a baby iguana tries to escape the clutches of deadly racer snakes.
And they will no doubt tap their toes along with dancing grizzly bears and be swept away by the bravery of a mother snow leopard.

Looking ahead to the tour, Liz said:
“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!”
