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, UK promoter from FKP Scorpio 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.”
All previously purchased tickets remain valid for these new dates!
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 Planet Earth II 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.”

Liz had always been interested in biology and chemistry at school, and she went on to study Biochemistry at University. After graduating, she started a career as a TV presenter working on such shows as BBC One's Top of the Pops, before returning to her first love, science, and completing a Masters in Wild Animal Biology and Conservation. Liz's main interests during her studies were animal behaviour and intelligence and big cat conservation. She set up and carried out a research project on the diet of tigers in Bardia National Park, Nepal, which saw her come first in her class.
Liz's TV career has drawn heavily on her academic expertise. Recently, Liz has co-presented BBC One’s Blue Planet Live and the ground-breaking documentary Drowning in Plastic. She has also presented Should We Close Our Zoos in the latest series of Horizon and Big Animal Surgery, both for BBC Two.
Liz has previously been on our screens presenting the BBC One series Galapagos and Wild Alaska Live following the hugely successful Big Blue Live series in Monterey, California for the BBC, and for PBS in the USA.
Liz has also appeared in the series of Who Do You Think You Are? on BBC One and presented a wildlife series for BBC One about animal migrations called Nature’s Epic Journeys. Other TV credits include wildlife and animal behaviour programmes Super Smart Animals, Animals in Love, Animals through the Night: Sleepover at the Zoo, Operation Snow Tiger and Animal Odd Couples; science series Horizon, Stargazing Live and Bang Goes the Theory; documentaries Egypt's Lost Cities, Museum of Life and Science Friction; and ITV's popular Countrywise.
In addition to her TV work, Liz is a conference facilitator and awards host, and has hosted various high profile events, including the UK's National Science and Engineering Competition Awards and the Natural History Museum's prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards.
Liz was also recently awarded an Honorary Fellowship of the British Science Association.
