American illusionist David Blaine to come for his first show here on Sept 8

Famed American illusionist David Blaine will be attempting to fool Singapore audiences with some of his latest mind-boggling tricks at a live show here on Sept 8.

To be held at the Compass Ballroom at Resorts World Sentosa, the 41-year-old's upcoming show here is part of his David Blaine: Real Or Magic world tour, which makes pit stops in Asia for the first time.

Blaine started out as a street magician in the 1990s, but has since gained fame for putting on large-scale public stunts, including being buried alive in an underground box for seven days, as well as standing atop a 30m-tall pillar for 35 hours without any harness.

Tickets for his Singapore show are priced from $88 to $188, and are available through TicketBooth (go to or call 6296-2929).
