David Blaine brings magic to Bournemouth International Centre

Magician, illusionist, and stunt artist, David Blaine will appear at the BIC on 15 June 2019


Having revolutionised modern magic and mesmerized audiences – magician, illusionist, and stunt artist, David Blaine will appear at the BIC on 15 June 2019.

Produced by Live Nation, Real or Magic is Blaine’s first-ever UK and Ireland tour.

His one-man show brings his unique brand of entertainment, promising to be an unforgettable interactive experience that both shocks and amazes.

His performance combines his world-famous sleight of hand with his death-defying endurance acts. No two shows will be exactly the same.

David Blaine single-handedly redefined magic after producing and directing his original television special Street Magic when he was just 23. Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller called it “the best TV magic special ever done.” Bringing his up close and personal brand of magic to the stage resulted in sold out performances across the United States and Canada.

Blaine was buried alive in a clear coffin in New York City for one week. The following year he stood inside a six-ton block of ice for 63 hours with no food or sleep. In 2002, he spent 36 hours standing atop a 30-metre pillar without a safety net, suffering a concussion after leaping 10 storeys into a pile of cardboard boxes. He survived for 73 hours with over one million volts of electricity discharged at him continuously from Tesla coils. Blaine endured 44 days of starvation inside a glass box suspended by a crane near the River Thames in London. When it was all over, he emerged forever changed. In 2006, he lived underwater for a week in a sphere-shaped aquarium at Lincoln Centre in New York City. He then attempted to break the world record for breath holding, resulting in emergency divers pulling him out to save his life.

Blaine has performed for US presidents and other international leaders and prominent figures.
