UK adventurer Bear Grylls, well known for his show Man vs Wild, will present a live stage show in New Zealand in November following sold out performances in Australia and the UK.
As one of the most recognised faces of adventure, Grylls will share his experiences of survival in some of the world's toughest jungles, mountains and deserts during the two-hour show. Audiences will also see footage and hear stories from his time with the SAS, the French Foreign Legion, Everest and more of Grylls' hair-raising adventures. The show will also contain on-stage action, fire, and bug-eating.
After breaking his back in three places in a parachuting accident, doctors doubted Grylls would walk again. He fought his way to recovery, and two years later entered the Guinness Book of Records as one of the youngest climbers ever to summit, aged 23. He has since led ground-breaking expeditions across the world, raising millions of dollars for children's charities in the process.
Grylls is also the author of fourteen books, including the number one bestseller Mud Sweat & Tears.
His TV show Man vs Wild, where he parachutes into remote locations and claws his way back to civilisation, is one of the most watched shows on the planet, reaching viewers in more than 200 countries with an estimated audience of 1.2 billion.
Earlier this year, Grylls has been fired from the Discovery Channel "due to a continuing contractual dispute", the channel stated.
Last year, Grylls praised the actions of a ten-year-old Kiwi boy - a big fan of the reality-show adventurer - who trudged through 21km of bush after getting lost.
