Having set two Guinness World Records with his previous sell-out World Tour, Professor Brian Cox is back with a brand-new, live-on-stage show Horizons - a 21st Century Space Odyssey, coming to the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre on October 21 and 22, 2022. 

Horizons takes audiences on 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, BCEC's Great Hall will be filled with images of far-away galaxies, alien worlds, supermassive black holes, and a time before the Big Bang.

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?  The deepest of questions will be explored using the latest advances in our understanding of quantum theory, black holes, biology, planetary science, astronomy and cosmology.

Horizons is a celebration of our civilisation, of our music, art, philosophy, and science; an optimistic vision of our future if we continue to explore nature with humility and to value ourselves and our fellow human beings.

The famous physicist will be joined by award-winning comedian Robin Ince (who co-hosts the BBC Radio 4 popular science series The Infinite Monkey Cage with Brian) for the most ambitious and spectacular show yet; one that will have audiences hooked on science more than ever!

Brian has also authored a series of best-selling books including the widely acclaimed Human Universe, and has been described as the natural successor for BBC’s scientific programming by both Sir David Attenborough and Patrick Moore.

Before his academic career, Brian was a keyboard player for the British bands D:Ream and Dare. D:Ream had a number one hit with ‘Things Can Only Get Better’ in 1994.
