Canadian magician Darcy Oake will be heading out on his first ever Nationwide UK tour with a series of thrilling live shows. Emerging in the world of illusion as a new generation of contemporary mysticism he has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting performers in magic right now.
In June 2014 over 200 million viewers tuned in to Britain’s Got Talent to witness the birth of a phenomenon: the unveiling of an electrifying new illusionist, Darcy Oake. From sleight of hand to death-defying escapades, this master magician grabbed the world’s attention, ushering in an exciting new era of an age-old art form. Darcy is a performance artist whose modern interpretation gratifies the hunger of audiences seeking spectacle and nail-biting feats of illusion. Inspired by classic sleights of hand techniques, Darcy transports the crowd to another dimension with exhilarating visuals and logic-defying exploits.
Since delving into the craft at the age of only eight, Darcy’s fresh approach has earned him multiple awards, including the prestigious People’s Choice Gold Medal, which he received from the Pacific Coast Association of Magicians. He has since gone on to become an international magic champion and headlined at the iconic Magic Castle, made numerous international television appearances, toured the globe and will now headline his first ever UK tour this Autumn.
After wowing the judges in this year’s Britain’s Got Talent Darcy Oake is back on screen with his very own one-hour magic special, Darcy Oake: Edge of Reality (Saturday 27th December, 9.50pm, ITV). Hosted by Christine Bleakley, this magical extravaganza takes place at the historic Blackpool Opera House and is full of breath-taking, logic-bending illusions in the grand old tradition of stage magic fused with Darcy’s modern twist.
Following the huge success of the live show Darcy is set to bring Edge of Reality on the road in 2015 with an exciting tour that gives his fans the opportunity to see his powerful skills up close and personal. In what promises to be a spectacular and unique live stage production, prepare to be amazed! The first leg of Darcy’s live tour will kick off in Sheffield and see him perform regionally across the UK with a grand finale at London’s Eventim Apollo.
