Anita Rani said of the addition of the second show; "The response to the upcoming tour has been fantastic and it’s really exciting that there will now be a second matinee show in London at the O2 Arena and I can’t wait to be a part of this exciting new live chapter of the Blue Planet story.”
Bringing the wonders and mysteries of the planet’s oceans and its inhabitants to the arena stage, Blue Planet II – Live In Concert will present a selection of incredible visuals from the BAFTA Award winning BBC One landmark series, highlighting the amazing natural wonders of our blue planet in breath-taking detail, projected on a giant state of the art 4K Ultra HD LED screen.
The concert will feature exciting visuals from the show including the now infamous Tusk fish, the Crab and Eel rock pool chase and the ‘folklore-turned-reality’ Sea Lion tuna hunt, to mention but a few. The Blue Planet II television show was the most watched TV programme of 2017 in the United Kingdom, reaching 37.6 million viewers.
The UK & Eire arena tour is committed to reducing its environmental impact. All of the arena venues have long term goals to reduce the use of plastic, lower carbon footprints, reduce energy consumption and improve awareness.
During the filming of the Blue Planet II television programme, film crews embarked on 125 expeditions, travelled to 39 countries and spent over 6,000 hours of deep sea diving armed with the latest state of the art equipment. Take a deep breath and
discover a whole new world hidden beneath the surface of the sea.Hosted by Anita Rani, the Blue Planet II – Live In Concert will allow the audience to share and enjoy this voyage of discovery in an epic live audio-visual experience unlike any other.
