DYNAMO the undisputed king of magic brings his ‘SEEING IS BELIEVING’ Live tour to New Zealand for the first time ever in July.
One of the biggest global TV superstars in the world, and one of the largest box office tours of recent years – Dynamo is a man of the people who has become the rockstar magician of a generation!‘SEEING IS BELIEVING’ Live is a spectacular full production show with a WOW WOW WOW factor!!!
He’s walked on water across the river Thames, levitated above the Shard, walked down the outside of the LA Times Building, made a car appear from light beams, predicted the Soccer World Cup outcome and taken a flight on the side of a bus.
The ‘SEEING IS BELIEVING’ Live New Zealand Tour delivers its first show on Friday 20th July in Christchurch at Horncastle Arena, with a matinee performance on Saturday 21st July at Horncastle Arena, before heading to Auckland’s Spark Arena on Thursday 26th July.
Dynamo, whose real name is Steven Frayne, became a superstar of TV when his multiple award-winning television series ‘Magician Impossible’ quickly established him as one of the world’s most popular and best loved magicians. ‘Magician Impossible’ aired in over 180 territories worldwide, reaching over 400 million cumulative viewers globally.
Here in New Zealand, the first series topped the audience viewing figures for 2013 – our #1 most watched show on TV. Subsequent shows and series had audience figures through the roof with Dynamo having one of the most popular shows in New Zealand television history.
With his ‘SEEING IS BELIEVING’ Live Tour, Dynamo has taken his magic to unprecedented heights, performing 127 shows in over 10 countries to 600,000+ magic fans across the continents. This includes being the first magician in history to headline the legendary O2 Arena in London. He did this not once, but three times!
Over the last six years, Dynamo’s ascent from unknown, working class magician hailing from the poverty-stricken Delph Hill estate on the outskirts of Bradford, to multi-award-winning global superstar, has been nothing short of miraculous. Dynamo`s approach - the big stunts are never pre-publicised and use well known landmarks as their backdrop - has allowed him to connect with young people and re-energise the genre in a way not seen for a generation. He’s the closest thing to a real life, comic book, super hero you will ever meet on the street or see on the stage!
Dynamo’s show will leave you speechless, but SEEING IS BELIEVING!!! New Zealand fans will now have their chance to add a bit of that magic into their lives when Dynamo brings his ‘SEEING IS BELIEVING’ Live Tour to our shores in 2018!
