David Blaine's Dublin show moved to Bord Gáis Energy Theatre on new date

Magician David Blaine has moved his Dublin show from the 3Arena to the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, saying technical issues caused the switch.

The event had been scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 8 but it will now be held in the new venue on Sunday, June 9.

All tickets previously purchased for the 3Arena will be fully valid for the new date and venue.

Blaine's tour was announced last March and the Dublin show will be his first in Ireland.

The tour is described as “an experiment in and of itself”, with the promise that “no two shows will be exactly the same”.

A one-man show, his interactive performances will combine Blaine’s sleight of hand with his death-defying endurance acts.

The tour comes more than 15 years after Blaine spent 44 days suspended in a glass box over the River Thames.

He made headlines for the 2003 feat, during which he was on camera at all times and did not eat at all.

His other stunts have included being buried in a clear coffin for one week in 1999, and standing atop a 30-metre pillar without a safety net for 36 hours straight in 2002, both in New York City.

A limited number of tickets from €78 including booking and facility fees go on sale for the new date on Friday, May 24 at 9am.
