Friday 15 March 2019
Tickets: £45.70 - £68.10

Live accompaniment by City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra
Conducted by Matthew Freeman
Music by Hans ZImme, Jacob Shea and David Fleming for Bleeding Fingers Music

BBC presenter Anita Rani has been announced as host for Blue Planet II – Live In Concert, ahead of a 13-date arena tour, at the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham on Friday 15 March.

A highly-respected TV personality, Anita Rani is a household name as one of the presenters of the BBC One series Countryfile, and regularly appears in and presents the BBC’s One Show. Anita has also presented programmes including Bollywood: The World’s Biggest Film Industry and Watchdog. In 2015 Anita was also a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing.

Rani said of narrating Blue Planet II – Live In Concert: “I am really honoured to have the role of host on the Blue Planet II Live In Concert arena tour. The TV series was such a fantastic and enlightening show and has really empowered society to view our oceans and environment with a great deal more care. I can’t wait to stand on stage with an 80-piece orchestra and huge screen showing some of that incredible Blue Planet II footage, it should be an amazing experience!”
Accompanied by the original immersive television music score by Bleeding Fingers Music, composed by Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea and David Fleming, the concert will be performed live by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, and conducted by Matthew Freeman.

Hans Zimmer said of composing the music for Blue Planet II – "The idea is to depict the abundance of life as well as the movements and vibrations of the ocean. By using the orchestra in an unconventional way, we wanted to create ‘living’ chords that ebb and flow throughout the series”. (Hans Zimmer)

Bringing the wonders and mysteries of the planet’s oceans and its inhabitants to the UK 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 are committed to reducing 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 program, 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 an enjoy this voyage of discovery in an epic live audio-visual experience unlike any other.
