Pop idol turned science hero, Professor Brian Cox, lands his latest tour Horizons at Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena this autumn.

What is the nature of space and time? Why does the universe exist? How did life begin, how rare might it be and what is the significance of life in the cosmos? What does it mean to live a small, finite life in a vast, eternal universe? If you ever lie awake at night asking yourself these questions, then you’re not alone.

Proving that science can be sexy, Professor Brian Cox has gone global since moving from TV to live shows which take his audience on a journey through complex ideas and theories, all set to mind blowing images of outer space.

An ever-present personality on British television, the Oldham-born professor of particle physics is well known for presenting programmes such as The Planets, Wonders of Life, Stargazing Live and Forces of Nature. He has also appeared as a panellist on the comedy show QI, and as himself on an episode of Doctor Who.

Brian says that the new live show Horizons will be a dazzling cinematic journey; a story of how we came to be and what we can become. Using state of the art LED screen technology, the M&S Bank Arena – next to Royal Albert Dock – will be filled with images of far-away galaxies, alien worlds, supermassive black holes and a time before the Big Bang. Deep questions will be explored using the latest advances in our understanding of quantum theory, black holes, biology, planetary science, astronomy and cosmology.

Brian will once again be joined on tour by award-winning comedian Robin Ince, co-host of his popular podcast The Infinite Monkey Cage. Whether you’re a science boffin or an amateur astronomer, Professor Brian Cox – Horizons looks set to be a thrilling adventure for all ages, to infinity and beyond.
