Deadly 60’s Steve Backshall to bring new ‘Ocean’ tour to Aberdeen
Steve Backshall will be bringing the sea to the stage with his new show Ocean – and Aberdeen fans will soon be able to book tickets to see the BAFTA-winning naturalist.
The 25-date tour will make a splash when it arrives in Aberdeen’s Music Hall on April 5 next year.
Steve’s new show has been described as a love letter to what he believes is the most exciting environment on our planet.
The explorer said: “It’s been five years since I last did a tour here in the UK, and we’ll be back bigger and bolder than ever. This time the show is full of stunts, tricks and experiments, looking to bring marine themes to life on stage.”
Covering more than 70% of our planet and producing 50% of the oxygen in the atmosphere, oceans help to regulate the global climate and will also be one of the topics discussed at COP26 which is currently taking place in Glasgow.
Show will feature stunts, experiments and props
Those interested in environmentalism will have a unique chance to learn more about what we need to do to save our seas. Stunts, experiments, props, cutting-edge science and big-screen footage from his two decades in TV will all help Steve to bring the icons of the “big blue” to life.
From great whites to great whales, and seals to sardine shoals, the show promises to be an opportunity for all the family to dive deep into the wonderful world beneath the waves.
Most recently, Steve, who is also a shark expert, has been teaching audiences more about the depths of our oceans in his new Sky Nature three-part series titled Shark with Steve Backshall.
He is arguably best known for BBC’s Deadly 60, tracking down 60 of the world’s deadliest animals.
Tickets for the Aberdeen show will go on sale on Friday November 5 here.

Review: Steve Backshall’s “Ocean” tour is a Splashing Success!
today 23 October 2023 61 5
Steve Backshall's "Ocean" captivates with thrilling underwater adventure.
Hold onto your snorkels, folks, because Steve Backshall’s new stage show, “Ocean,” is making waves across the UK! With his infectious enthusiasm and unparalleled knowledge of the deep blue, Backshall takes audiences on a thrilling underwater adventure like no other.
As a self-proclaimed fan of Backshall, my eight-year-old son, Charlie, was on cloud nine throughout the entire show. From the moment the lights dimmed, Steve had us hooked, mesmerized by his larger-than-life personality and captivating storytelling.
Giant screen and live animals bring ocean alive.
The stage comes alive with a colossal screen showcasing jaw-dropping footage of Steve’s exhilarating encounters with majestic sharks, playful dolphins, and awe-inspiring whales. It’s the closest you’ll get to swimming alongside these incredible creatures without getting wet! The on-stage science experiments, props, stunts, and tricks add an extra layer of excitement, making it an interactive experience that had both kids and adults on the edge of their seats.
But the real showstoppers? Life-size scale ocean giants that make guest appearances on stage! Steve knows just how difficult it is to comprehend the size and majesty of these animals truly, so he brings them to life right before our eyes. Trust me when I say, seeing these giants up close left us in absolute awe.
"Ocean" showcases deep sea, addresses environmental challenges, inspires.
“Ocean” isn’t just about showcasing the marvels of the deep sea. Steve addresses the challenges that marine creatures face and sheds light on the broader environmental issues our oceans are currently grappling with. It’s an important message beautifully woven into an unforgettable show, leaving the audience inspired and motivated to protect our precious marine ecosystems.
Steve Backshall’s passion and charisma are contagious, and watching him bring the ocean’s wonders to life is a sheer delight. So, grab your snorkel gear and dive headfirst into the adventure of a lifetime and book your tickets for “Ocean.” You won’t be disappointed!

‘That would be a pretty good life’: Steve Backshall reveals which animal he’d like to be reincarnated as
Steve Backshall loves his current one, but the animal enthusiast knows exactly what he would like to come back as in another life, should he get the chance.
The Surrey-born naturalist and wildlife presenter, 49, is all about the orca.
“That would be a pretty good life,” he told the Standard at the launch of the new BBC Earth Experience in London on Wednesday.
He added: “They are so intelligent, cooperative and they have highly developed language. I just think they are extraordinary.”
They are among the plethora of animals featured in the unique immersive experience, which showcases breathtaking footage from BBC Studio’s Seven Worlds, One Planet series accompanied with special narration by Sir David Attenborough .
Opening to the general public from March 30, it is housed in The Daikin Centre, a brand-new, purpose-built building in Earl’s Court, which is demountable and has been designed with a commitment to minimising environmental impact.
Speaking of his involvement, the dad-of-three who is married to Olympic rower Helen Glover , said: “I’m going to be fronting the educational aspect of the whole experience which will allow kids, teachers and school groups to come along and get a little bit extra.
“I think for most people coming along – certainly for me when I brought my kids, it was all about revelling in the glory and the wonder of the spectacle. But, we have an opportunity here to take it a step further than that and for kids to come and learn more about the animals themselves, how they fit into the environment, the habitats that we see them in and to maybe get a sense also of the challenges that those animals and their environments are facing.”
He fully believes that educating children about the wonders of our planet from a young age is vital to its survival.
He said: “We need to get young people to love the wild world because the very people that treasure it are the ones who are going to want to protect it. So the first thing we are going to have to do is to inspire them, to kind of bring them along with glory and majesty, then hopefully they will find their own ways to want to try and protect it.

“I think we have this groundswell of young activists – young people who are so much more aware of the environment than my generation ever was. My four-year-old, who is only in reception, already knows more about climate change, pollution and extinction than I learned in my entire schooling.
“It’s important because the world is facing more human threats than ever before,” he added.
Elsewhere, Backshall – who competed in the 2014 series of Strictly Come Dancing – has plenty to keep him busy.
He’s currently gearing up for a UK-wide tour in October focusing on oceans and ocean animals.
Excited to hit the road, he said: “We have life-size ocean giants on stage, we have a massive screen with amazing imagery from all the world’s seas and stage science and tricks and it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

There are bright paintings, mosaics, stained glass, bronze statues… Our Moscow metro tour includes the most impressive stations best architects and designers worked at - Ploshchad Revolutsii, Mayakovskaya, Komsomolskaya, Kievskaya, Novoslobodskaya and some others.

The guide will not only help you navigate the metro, but will also provide you with fascinating background tales for the images you see and a history of each station.
And there some stories to be told during the Moscow metro tour! The deepest station - Park Pobedy - is 84 metres under the ground with the world longest escalator of 140 meters. Parts of the so-called Metro-2, a secret strategic system of underground tunnels, was used for its construction.
During the Second World War the metro itself became a strategic asset: it was turned into the city's biggest bomb-shelter and one of the stations even became a library. 217 children were born here in 1941-1942! The metro is the most effective means of transport in the capital.
There are almost 200 stations 196 at the moment and trains run every 90 seconds! The guide of your Moscow metro tour can explain to you how to buy tickets and find your way if you plan to get around by yourself.
