PROFESSOR Brian Cox is promising to bring a science show to rival a rock concert to Brighton.

Having set two Guinness World Record titles with his previous sell-out live tour, Professor Cox has said visit to the Brighton Centre will be even bigger and better.

But star struck science fans will have a long wait as his visit to the city is not until February 2019

The rock star physicist said: “On the last tour I loved talking about astronomy and cosmology in very large venues that usually only host rock bands. The great advantage was the ability to use vast, state of the art screens to display images of the cosmos as we’ve never seen them before. 30 meter-wide images from the Hubble Space Telescope are certainly something to behold. On this new tour, I’m going to go a step further with the technology, to the horror of my promoter because it’ll be expensive. But it’ll be spectacular as well, and I hope it’ll offer people a completely new perspective on our place in the Universe.”

Professor Cox went from pop star to superstar star gazer - swapping his life as the keyboard player in D-Ream to become a professor of particle physics at the University of Manchester and fellow of the Royal Society.

His show will present challenging ideas accessible to all, exploring the vast, possibly infinite universe and our place within it from earth to the edges of the cosmos.

He will be joined on stage comedian Robin Ince and fans will be given the chance to ask any questions to every show unique.

Professor Brian Cox Live 2019, will be at the Brighton Centre on February 26, 2019.
