Professor Brian Cox Comes to Auckland

Professor Brian Cox Comes to Auckland
for the First Time – Tickets on Sale Next Week

Following the Guinness World Record-breaking tour of the UK and Europe, Professor Brian Cox brings the world’s most successful and significant science show to New Zealand in November, for the first time. It will play at the ASB Theatre in Auckland on Tuesday 7 November.

“The massive screens of this show do justice to the astonishing images of the universe from the Hubble Space Telescope and spacecraft like the Cassini orbit around Saturn,” said Prof Brian Cox. “The success of the tour in the UK and Europe also means that hundreds of thousands of people were interested enough in physics to come and watch a live show about it, and that’s an encouraging thought for the future!”

Guinness World Records Editor-in-Chief, Craig Glenday, said, “It’s a testament to Brian’s huge popularity that his show, Prof Brian Cox Live, has been able to sell 150,000 tickets in the UK and Europe, including in large venues such as Wembley Arena, which are usually reserved for pop stars and sporting events.” Brian Cox is one of the world’s foremost communicators of all things scientific. His innate ability to make highly complex matters entertaining and easy to contemplate has made his scientific television shows groundbreaking in their audience reach and accessibility.

Joining Brian on stage will be British comedian, actor and writer Robin Ince, Brian’s co-host on the BBC Radio 4’s The Infinite Monkey Cage.

Professor Brian Cox OBE is a British particle physicist at the University of Manchester and Royal Society Professor for Public Engagement in Science. He carried out research at the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Switzerland and the HI experiment at DESY in Hamburg.
