Michael Palin - Live On Stage: Erebus, Python and Other Stories will be linked to the paperback publication of his latest book, Erebus: The Story of A Ship.
The Monty Python star will visit 12 venues around England, beginning in Bournemouth on 7th June and ending in Bath on 7th July.
The tour promoters explain: "In the first part of the show, Palin brings to life the thrilling story of HMS Erebus, the tough little ship that took on the Antarctic and the Arctic in the 1840s, and which was the subject of his latest bestselling book. His richly illustrated talk conveys the triumph and tragedy of the ship's short and doomed life, and what it was about it that made him so keen to tell its story.
"In the second half, Michael tells his own life story, including how his three favourite subjects at school (Geography, History and Comedy) have shaped his life, from Monty Python to Ripping Yarns and the many television travel series that have taken him all around the world, from the North Pole to North Korea.
"With previously unseen footage and previously untold stories, Michael shows how comedy and adventure have been natural bedfellows during a rich and diverse career."
Erebus: the Story of a Ship is out now in hardback and due to be published by Arrow in paperback on 30th May. The tour will be supported by local bookshops and signed copies of his books will be available to buy.
