Bear Grylls' Live Stage Show Coming to NZ


Following sell out performances in Australia and the UK Adventurer Bear Grylls will present his live stage show in New Zealand this November.

Bear Grylls has become one of the most recognised faces of adventure worldwide. He is the star of the global hit TV show Man vs. Wild and the author of fourteen books, including the number one bestseller Mud Sweat & Tears.

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 Mount Everest, aged only 23. He has since led ground-breaking expeditions across the world, raising millions of dollars for children’s charities in the process.

Bear’s story of progressing from a broken back in hospital to the summit of the world's highest mountain is one that touches people globally. His never say die attitude and his quest for adventure runs through everything Bear does

During the 2 hour live show Bear will share his experiences of survival in some of the world’s toughest jungles, mountains and deserts. Audiences will also see footage and hear stories from his time with the SAS, the French Foreign Legion, Everest and many more of Bear’s hair-raising adventures.

Bear is known by millions of people across the world as the daredevil who crossed the Arctic ocean in an inflatable boat, flew a powered paraglider above Mount Everest, and of course slept inside a camel carcass and ate yak eyeballs to show us how to survive!

This live show will be a rare opportunity to see Bear Grylls up close and personal, and hear his incredible and inspirational tales first hand.

Grylls’ TV show Man vs. Wild, where he parachutes into remote locations and claws his way back to civilization, 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.

Appointed as the youngest ever Chief Scout to the Scout Association, a black belt in Karate and featured in People Magazine’s ‘Sexiest Men’ list, Grylls enthralls audiences worldwide.

If you have ever dreamt of high-adventure and want to know what it takes to achieve your dreams, then come and hear first hand from the man who embodies survival, the wild, and of course eating the impossible!

The show contains on-stage action, fire, bug-eating and much more… be warned!

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
