Christian Lee, a finalist from Britain’s Got Talent in 2016, is headlining a touring magic show in the UK. Britain’s Got Magic will play shows from East Sussex to West Yorkshire over the coming months. The website has the full schedule and ticket information.
Lee took the international stage with a run on the television competition, but he’s also built a strong following on YouTube with his blend of magic and comedy. He’ll be joined by a rotating roster of guest performers at the different stops around the UK. For tonight’s performance in Lincoln, for instance, he’s sharing the stage with Oliver Tabor and Max Somerset. Both magicians have solid accolades on their resumes, and if this is a sign of what’s to come, this tour is shaping up to offer a good night of fun for magic fans.

After taking a few months to rest and recuperate (swallowing live frogs can take a lot out of you, apparently), star magician David Blaine is back on the tour circuit with a whole new slate of appearances throughout North America in 2018.
According to LiveNation.com, tickets for David Blaine Live will go on sale on Friday, March 2 at 12pm PST. Stops on Blaine’s tour include a swath of California appearances, kicking off the tour in San Diego, then Bakersfield, Fresno, San Jose, and Hollywood. Other locations include Mesa, Arizona, a few stops in Canada in Vancouver and Toronto, Orlando, Brooklyn, Chicago, and more.
No word on ticket pricing or what exactly this new tour will entail, but considering we got to see Blaine perform a secret new trick at GeniiCon 2017, there’s a good possibility you’ll see some new material on this tour. Blaine’s website has been overhauled recently to incorporate space for details on his new tour, but the link to purchase tickets currently redirects back to the home page – this will hopefully be sorted out shortly.
While you’re waiting for tickets to go on sale, why not check out our coverage of Blaine’s interview at GeniiCon 2017? Learn about how he scoured Liberia for five years to find out the source of a trick, how he nearly set himself on fire in front of a bunch of Microsoft employees, and watch the video below to see what other magicians thought of his appearance at last year’s convention.
