Expect the unexpected when Dynamo descends on the Sun Arena.
Expect the unexpected when Dynamo unleashes his Seeing is Believing Live SA Tour at the Sun Arena, Time Square South Africa in May 2018.
“We have no idea what to expect or what Dynamo has in store for his fans when he kicks off his first ever live South African tour at the Sun Arena. But, we have no doubt, it will be an extraordinary and mind boggling show,” says Brett Hoppé, General Manager at Time Square South Africa in Menlyn Maine.
Dynamo is known the world for his super human, mind blowing tricks. He’s walked on water across the river Thames, levitated in front of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro and walked down the outside of the L.A times building; he’s predicted the Soccer World Cup outcome and taken a trip on the side of a bus.
Dynamo says of his stage venture: “After four series of Magician Impossible I was ready for a new challenge and for a long time I wanted to take my show to the stage. Like I did for magic on TV, the live magic show offers fans an entertainment experience never seen before. I can’t wait to amaze South African audiences with what I have in store for them.”
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. In a short time he quickly established himself as one of the world’s most popular and best loved magicians, with his TV series airing in over 180 territories worldwide, reaching over 400 million cumulative viewers globally. He’s the first magician in history to headline the world famous O2 in London and he was awarded the highest accolade by the magic circle with his promotion to Member of the Inner Magic Circle with Gold Star, a position only held by 300 magicians worldwide.
After the hit television series, Dynamo’s Seeing is Believing stage show quickly erupted from a 10-date run into a year-long world tour as Dynamo spread his magic and filled arenas by playing 127 shows with over 600 000 plus tickets sold making it one of the largest scale magic shows in the world. Dynamo “fever” spread resulting in the highly successful Dynamo UK tour that sold out on 400 000 tickets and the Australia tour sold out on 100 000 tickets. Not only has he redefined the shape of modern magic for the millennial generation much like Blaine in the late 1990s and David Copperfield in the 1980s; Dynamo’s approach to large scale illusion (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.
It is this impact that has helped Dynamo transcend the world of magic to become a bona fide pop culture icon, with giants from the worlds of music, film and sport enthralled by his performances. Brad Pitt made a surprise visit to watch Dynamo’s live show with his kids as did fashion icon Kate Moss and artist Damien Hirst. Will Smith called Dynamo’s performance “absolutely astonishing” and Cristiano Ronaldo and Jay-Z have both hired him to perform at private functions.
His South African tour begins at the new Sun Arena at Time Square, Menlyn Maine, Pretoria on Friday, 11 May 2018 at 20h00 followed by two shows on Saturday, 12 May 2018 at 15h00 and 20h00 and one show on Sunday, 13 May 2018 at 15h00. He then moves on to Cape Town.
