Re: 377: MAGIC Live! Day Four Podcast Update

Re: Eugene Burger Has Died at 78

Eugene was one of the true giants in magic ... such fond memories of the events during the teen weekends at the World Magic Seminar. No matter who you were - beginner or pro - Eugene treated everyone as if they were the most important person in the room. A gentle soul who will be sorely missed.

Whilst I'm sure the tour will be successful - you can't but help feel that his management missed a beat here. This "live" tour is almost 10 years too late ...

It's also interesting to contrast the mega-arenas that Dynamo was playing vs the small theatres Blaine is doing.
