Magician and illusionist David Blaine is back on television in a one-hour special on ABC tonight. The special features his cutting-edge, thrilling and unbelievable tricks, along with death-defying stunts. And, several A-list celebrities come along for the ride. Blaine recently dished about the special in an interview with People, revealing that:
It’s been three years in the making to be honest. The first part was learning how to do all sorts of new things that I’ve never done before. Things that were historical pieces of magic. Things that were legendary stories in magic where the actual performers took their secrets to the grave. You see the progress of learning these for the first time. You’ll see behind the scenes and how I work on the magic effect and then you see me go out into the real world and use these new pieces of magic. I look for amazing and truthful responses from people of all walks of life.
Blaine will be embarking on his first world tour following the special. Check out all the details on tonight’s show below.
