Professor Brian Cox Space Odyssey arena tour postponed until 2022

Professor Brian Cox to embark on a new tour in 2021, find out how to get tickets

New show Horizons: A 2021 Space Odyssey is set to take audiences on a dazzling cinematic journey, telling the story of how we came to be

Professor Brian Cox has announced that his new touring show Horizons: A 2021 Space Odyssey has been delayed to 2022. Tickets for the tour are on general sale now.

Organisers for the event stated, 'We want to ensure all ticketholders can attend and therefore the full schedule of shows will go ahead on alternate dates next year, from 29th August-2nd October 2022. Any ticketholders unable to attend the newly scheduled date will be entitled to a full refund.'

Horizons is set to take audiences on a dazzling cinematic journey, telling the story of how we came to be and what we can become on earth. State of the art LED screens will transform UK arenas into far-away galaxies, alien worlds and transport science fans to the time of the Big Bang.

Professor Brian Cox broke two Guinness World Records with his previous sell-out world tour, and will no doubt come close this time around. The Prof. never shies from askings life's big questions and the new show will contemplate: What is the nature of space and time? Why does the Universe exist? What does it mean to live a small, finite life in a vast, eternal universe?

Cox will explore these questions and share the latest advances in our understanding of quantum theory, black holes, biology, planetary science, astronomy and cosmology with his fans.

Horizons celebrates our civilisation, its music, art, philosophy and science and provides an optimistic vision of the future. Brian is joined by co-host of The Infinite Monkey Cage and award-winning comedian Robin Ince. Ince will oversee a Q&A at each show giving an audience of 10,000 people the chance to put questions to the Professor.
