David Blaine UK Tour

Postby AJM » March 28th, 2019, 2:49 pm

I see David Blaine will be visiting these shores with his Real or Magic Tour. He will be in Edinburgh on June 5th.

Would welcome thoughts on whether this is a show worth seeing.

Cheers

Haven’t been able to see it yet, but everyone I know (including those often critical of Blaine) who have seen it says it’s really great.

Saw him here in Huntsville last summer. Excellent show, well worth seeing.

I criticized David on several occasions, and therefore was completely blindsided by his show. I really did feel that this was how people must have felt when watching Houdini. It's a great show. I saw nothing early on in his career that prepared me for the charisma and energy he throws off onstage and the way he connects with an audience. Not to mention the insanity of doing what he does in the show almost nightly.
You MUST see it.

Booked for Manchester. It was Richard's enthusiastic review in GENII that made me want to see the show.

Read Jon Racherbaumer's piece about Blaine in a back issue of Genii (I forget the issue date), and I suspect you'll be willing to do just about anything to see his Real or Magic show. If I had the money, I'd fly myself to England to see it because it sounds like a once in a lifetime experience.
