Magician David Blaine Announces North American Run


LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Magician David Blaine is hitting the road this spring for an extensive run of North American dates.

The Live Nation-produced ‘David Blaine Live’ tour kicks off on May 6th at the San Diego Civic Center in sunny Calfornia and runs through mid-July when it wraps with a pair of shows at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn on July 12 & 14th.

Blaine is known for his fusion of both magic and physical stunt work which include being buried alive in New York City for a week, encased inside a six-ton block of ice for three days, surviving standing atop a 100ft tall pillar in Bryant Park for 36 hours without a safety net, enduring 44 days inside a transparent box in London on nothing but water, and living within one million volts discharged at him continuously for 72 hours from seven Tesla coils.

Blaine also spent one week submerged in a sphere-shaped aquarium at Lincoln Center, after which he broke the world record for breath-holding live on the Oprah Winfrey show where he held his breath for over 17 minutes.
