HORIZONS: A 21st CENTURY SPACE ODYSSEY

World-renowned physicist, Professor Brian Cox, will bring his immersive live experience, Horizons: A 21st Century Space Odyssey, to San Francisco's Golden Gate Theatre (1 Taylor Street, San Francisco) for one-night only on Tuesday June 14, 2022, as part of his world tour. Tickets for Professor Cox go on sale on Thursday, October 7 at 10AM PT at broadwaysf.com.

From April through June 2022, Horizons will tour to theaters in 29 cities throughout North America. The tour will also visit arenas and theaters throughout the U.K., Europe, Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia. The North American tour is produced by WestBeth Entertainment.

"I loved the 2019 world tour because it gave me the opportunity to discuss the most profound ideas with tens of thousands of people in front of the most spectacular images of the Universe," stated Professor Cox. "When the tour was over, I immediately started thinking about how I could delve deeper, tell an even more profound story and make the show even more spectacular. I'm very excited about what has emerged! I hope the evening will make people think about how fortunate and precious we are, how strange and wonderful our Universe is, and the limitless future we have to look forward to if we make the right choices over the coming decades."

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, venues 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 civilization, 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.

Brian will once again be joined by co-host of The Infinite Monkey Cage and award-winning comedian Robin Ince, perhaps the only collection of sentient atoms in the observable Universe capable of overseeing a Q&A with an audience of 2,000 people whilst wearing an old cardigan.

Professor Brian Cox CBE is Professor of Particle Physics at The University of Manchester, The Royal Society Professor for Public Engagement in Science and a Fellow of the Royal Society. As a broadcaster, he has presented a number of highly acclaimed science programs for the BBC including Wonders of the Solar System, Forces of Nature, Stargazing Live and, in 2019, The Planets. He is credited with boosting the popularity of subjects such as astronomy and physics and has garnered a host of accolades for his TV work, including two Royal Television Society awards and a Peabody Award for Wonders of the Solar System.
