Having set two Guinness World Records with his previous sell-out World Tour, Professor Brian Cox returns to Australia in October 2022! Tickets are now on sale for Professor Brian Cox's brand-new live on-stage show Horizons: A 21st Century Space Odyssey. The biggest science show on the planet.


Presented by Lateral Events, Horizons will take audiences on a dazzling cinematic journey; a story of how we came to be and what we can become. 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.

Using state-of-the-art LED screen technology, arenas 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?


Professor Brian Cox will once again be joined by co-host of The Infinite Monkey Cage and award-winning comedian Robin Ince.
