Revolutionary magician David Blaine is bringing his Real or Magic' tour to Edinburgh Playhouse this June!
About David Blaine
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Revolutionary magician David Blaine has confirmed details of his first ever UK tour.
The Real or Magic tour comes to Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham, Bournemouth and London in June 2019.
Known for his close-up street magic and elaborate, often dangerous stunts, David Blaine is one of the most recognisable and pioneering magicians currently performing.
A regular on television screens, David burst onto the scene with his self-directed and produced TV special Street Magic when he was just 23. Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller described the show as “the best TV magic special ever done”.
Blaine is known for his self-described “endurance art”, pushing his body to the limits in often death-defying situations.
In 1999, Blaine spent one week buried alive inside a clear coffin in New York City and the following year stood inside a six-tonne block of ice for 63 hours with no food or sleep.
In 2002, again in New York City, the magician spent 36 hours standing on top of a 30-metre tall pillar with no safety net.
The magician received huge attention from the UK press the following year with his Above the Below stunt, which saw the performer sealed inside a plexiglass box above London’s River Thames for 44 days.
Blaine’s special Real or Magic aired on TV in 2013 and featured the magician performing tricks on celebrities such as Bryan Cranston, Robert De Niro, Harrison Ford, Katy Perry, Olivia Munn, Kanye West, Jamie Foxx and more.
