BBC Studios and FKP Scorpio UK have announced “Planet Earth III Live in Concert” is coming to U.K. audiences with three performances at London Wembley OVO Arena and Manchester AO Arena in October. 

Following the critically acclaimed and successful “Blue Planet II” and “Planet Earth II Live in Concert” arena tours, the “Planet Earth III Live in Concert” will include footage from the latest television series produced by the BBC Studios Natural History Unit, which will be shown in 4K ultra high definition on a gigantic LED screen. The accompanying concert will feature the music score by Oscar winner, Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea and Sara Barone for Bleeding Fingers Music, performed by the City of Prague Philharmonic orchestra. 

Hans Zimmer and his team at Bleeding Fingers also worked in collaboration with Brit-winning and Grammy-nominated band, Bastille, for the music score and Mercury Prize Award nominated singer-songwriter, RAYE.  

“Creating scores for any of the BBC’s Natural History series is always an honor for me as there are no more epic stories than those occurring naturally every day in our own planet’s ecosystem,” says Zimmer. “For ‘Planet Earth III’ it’s been a further privilege to work with the incredible world class talents of Bastille who created wonderful vocals on the soundscape for the series, and RAYE with her  beautiful, poignant prequal track.”

The concert experience will take audiences to every corner of the planet, from deserts and grasslands, through forests, along coastlines and into the depths of the ocean, with extraordinary stories of animal dramas that are thrilling, funny and sometimes heartbreaking. As always, the natural world continues to surprise, and this concert will show how animals are adapting in extraordinary ways to survive new challenges at this crucial time in history where humans play a central role. 

The series itself was filmed over 1,904 days, in 43 countries and across six continents.  

“‘Planet Earth III’ is about the resilience and adaptability of nature, and the remarkable animals that are changing their lives to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world dominated more than ever by a powerful force: us,” says Mike Gunton, executive producer, “Planet Earth III” television series. “It’s full of surprise and wonder but seen from a new perspective.” 

“After the successful ‘Blue Planet II’ and ‘Planet Earth II Live In Concert’ tours, we are delighted to continue our partnership with FKP Scorpio and bring the amazing Planet Earth III to London and Manchester, showcasing the BBC’s groundbreaking natural history content on the stage for fans to enjoy once again,” says Dominic Walker, global business director, BBC Studios. 

Promoted by FKP Scorpio UK, the London show will feature a matinee and evening performance at London OVO Wembley arena on Saturday, Oct. 5 with the Manchester AO arena performance taking place on Sunday, Oct. 6. Pre-sale tickets will be available starting Feb. 20 and general tickets will be available Feb. 23.
