Blue Planet 2 live in concert
Written by Scott McGerty on 4th June 2018
Blue Planet II is coming to Newcastle in a new arena show.
Blue Planet II – Live In Concert – will present a selection of stunning visuals from the television series, highlighting the incredible natural wonders of our blue planet in breath-taking detail, projected on a state of the art 200 square metre 4K Ultra HD LED screen.
Accompanied by the original immersive music score by Bleeding Fingers Music, the concert will be performed live by a full symphony orchestra.
A fantastical journey from icy polar seas to pulsating coral reefs, from the luminous deep sea to enormous kelp forests: immerse yourself with Blue Planet II – Live In Concert, a simply breath-taking and epic show that you will never forget.
The UK arena tour is a live adaptation of a television story that began some 20 years ago when a team of wildlife filmmakers from the BBC’s Natural History Unit set out to make a television series on the world’s oceans, the breadth and scale of which had never been seen before.
Now, a generation later, the Natural History Unit has once again dived deep into the blue underworld, providing the audience with a completely new perspective on our oceans, coasts and coral ecosystems – full of mystery, surprise, and startling revelations.
During the four-year filming of Blue Planet II, the teams embarked on 125 expeditions, travelled to 39 countries, filmed on all continents and in every ocean.
They spent 6,000 hours deep-sea diving, 1,000 of which were on underwater boats. Logistically, some of these expeditions could be compared to a trip into space – such was the effort.
In the process, the camera teams encountered creatures that appeared so strange that they really did seem to come from a different planet.
Tickets go on sale on the 8th of June from here.
