Toronto fans of David Blaine have the chance to catch his North American summer tour with two shows back to back at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts this week.
We had a chance to attend the first show last night and it was truly incredible to see his famous stunts in real life. The majority of the tricks allowed for audience members to join him on stage, so if youre lucky you may get to be a part the show.
Tonights show included tricks that even celebrities like Drake and Jimmy Fallon can’t keep their cool for such as coughing up a frog (that’s alive – no big deal) piercing through his arm, sewing his mouth shut and the insanely long breath hold while submerged in a tank of water.
In between the different acts, Blaine explained the significance of each stunt and shared his personal childhood memories. It was inspiring hearing him tell his life story and sharing the difficulty growing up in a time where his mother was raising him under financial struggles and having been born with abnormalities in his legs. These struggles only pushed him harder and taught him to resist the pain and persevere towards his goals.
