‘Bear Grylls: Mud, Sweat and Tears Live’ kicks off with two shows on May 1st and 2nd in New York City before going across America. Tickets are now on sale at beargryllslive.com, Ticketmaster.com and AEGLive.com.
Bear Grylls, the star of Man vs Wild, one of the most watched TV shows on the planet, will take to the stage to share his epic stories of adventure and survival. The tour will see Bear recount experiences ranging from his journey to the summit of Mount Everest to never before seen footage and an intimate behind the scenes look at his hit TV show.
“The stage show gives fans a chance to hear first hand stories of some of my toughest adventures: from Mount Everest and the Arctic, to the French Foreign Legion, 21 SAS and more. We then hit the Man vs Wild journey: how the show came about and some of the real highs and lows of tackling many of the world’s toughest jungles, deserts and mountains,” said Grylls. “Above all though, it’s a fun show that the entire family can enjoy!”
With aerial stunts, snakes and fire, the master of outdoor survival shares some of his most memorable moments from the wild.
Author of the number One UK Best-selling book, Mud, Sweat and Tears, the book will hit bookshelves across America on May 1, 2012.
As Bear recounts, “I had a hunger to push myself, and I found out that I could dig very deep when I needed to. I don’t really know where or how this hunger came about, but I had it. I call it the ‘fire’… and I soon realized that I was beginning to be able to do stuff that no one else at school could do, and it felt good.” — From Mud, Sweat, and Tears.

More about Mud, Sweat & Tears
Bear Grylls is a man who has always sought the ultimate in adventure. Growing up on an island off Britain’s windswept coast, he was taught by his father to sail and climb at an early age. Inevitably, it wasn’t long before Bear was sneaking out of school to lead all-night climbing expeditions.
As a teenager at Eton College, he found identity and purpose through both mountaineering and martial arts, which led the young adventurer to the foothills of the mighty Himalaya and a karate grandmaster’s remote training camp in Japan. Upon returning home, he embarked upon the notoriously grueling selection course for the British Special Forces to join the elite SAS unit — a journey that was to push him to the very limits of physical and mental endurance.
Then disaster struck. In a horrific free-fall parachuting accident in Africa, Bear broke his back in three places. It was touch and go whether he would walk again. However, only eighteen months later and defying doctors’ expectations, a twenty-three-year-old Bear became one of the youngest ever climbers to scale Mt. Everest, the world’s highest summit. But this was just the beginning of his many extraordinary adventures .
Known and admired by millions as the star of Man Vs. Wild, Bear Grylls has survived where few would dare to go. Now, for the first time, Bear tells the story of his action-packed life. Gripping, moving and wildly exhilarating, Mud, Sweat and Tears is a must-read for adrenalin junkies and armchair explorers alike.
