Thrill-seekers will be in for a treat when hardcore adventurer Bear Grylls travels to Dublin for his first live tour.

Titled Endeavour, the show will recreate some of his most thrilling real-life encounters from some of the toughest places in the world.

Using state-of-the-art technology and featuring an array of aerial stunts, Bear will be hoping to dazzle Irish audiences with tales of his former glories from around the globe.

"I can't wait to get back over to Dublin and Ireland. It's been too long," he said.

He said that the interactive event, which he has created himself, is a project "that has consumed me for the last year".

Going from daring feats of swimming in shark- infested waters to surviving the inhospitable environment of Everest, he has promised a real treat in store for adrenalin junkies.

The former SAS officer said that audiences will get to witness "some of the greatest and most unknown feats of exploration in history".

Grylls will be joined on stage by Cirque du Soleil aerial artists and stunt crews.

He said that the show was a "truly uplifting experience" and he was so proud of it.

He also had high praise for the winner of his Mission Survive show, namely Howth native Vogue Williams.

The TV star said that Vogue really proved her mettle during the gruelling journey through the Costa Rican jungle last year, telling RTE's Ryan Tubridy that she was "an incredibly worthy winner".

His show will come to the 3Arena on October 19. Tickets will go on sale this Friday at 9am.
