One of the world's best magicians of all time will be coming to Manila.
Magician David Blaine, a man who has wowed, spooked and intrigued audiences with his magic tricks is set to cast a spell on Filipinos on September 12 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Real or Magic will be his first ever show in the country. This 90-minuter live performance will feature various tricks that have caught everyone’s attention, as seen in his videos of “street magic” performances. The 41-year-old magician’s Manila stopover is part of his first Asian tour.
The show’s title references Blaine’s TV special last year in which he performed inexplicable tricks to the stupefaction of celebrities such as Will Smith, Kanye West, Ricky Gervais, Katy Perry and Harrison Ford.
Born in New York, Blaine rose to fame when he debuted his magic in 1997. He is best known for his high-profile feats of endurance, and has made his name as a performer of street and close-up magic. Blaine later took his magic to another level by performing death-defying performances inspired by his idol, Harry Houdini. This includes endurance stunts such as living in a glass box for days, submerging himself in 4,000 pounds of water for over one week and standing on a 100-foot pillar for 35 hours.
The magician has been called our generation’s greatest, Pinoys should be the judge.
