The show will be Titled “David Blaine: Real or Magic?” the show will reportedly explore the boundary between reality and illusion, with Blaine performing some of his most famous illusions for audiences. This will be the first time that Blaine has had a residency show in Las Vegas – he has performed in other parts of the world, including New York, London, and Toronto.
In a statement released today, he said that he is set to launch a new Las Vegas residency. The show, which is set to debut in 2020, will be called "David Blaine: Live and will see the performer attempt some of his most iconic illusions live on stage.
"Las Vegas has always been a place where I could push the boundaries of my magic further than anywhere else in the world," said Blaine in a statement. "I can't wait to bring my new show to the stage at the MGM Grand and blow people's minds."
"I'm eager to have the option to construct something other than what's expected than anything at any point been done," Blaine recently told PEOPLE magazine.
David Blaine Live will incorporate a portion of the entertainer's exemplary stunts, alongside new tricks he's energized so that fans might see. But since of the perilous idea of his work, Blaine will just perform one end of the week out of every month for a long time.
"For quite a long time, Vegas has been making offers, and incredible offers. The issue with my show," Blaine makes sense of, "is the show that I fantasy about doing genuinely isn't possible a large number of evenings. It's excessively risky."
That is the very reason Blaine picked the Resorts World Theater for his very first Las Vegas residency. The new setting — which opened in December 2021 and holds a limit of 5000 — permits Blaine "to have the remarkable viewpoint of the things that I've generally envisioned doing in a performance center yet never been able to make," he says.
