Flying pianos, levitating women, grand illusions, women emerging from fire and vanishing, escapes, comedy magic and beautiful dancers with Cirque du Soleil style transitions are just some of the acts that will entertain you at Masters of Illusion, now on its 3rd tour (

The show comes to Harrah’s Atlantic City on February 13th, 20th, and 27th of this month.

 

Only the best, most unique, amusing, astounding and amazing performers have been chosen to perform in Masters of Illusion, who include Rick Thomas, Ed Alonzo, Jonathan Pendragon, Greg Gleason, Michael Turco, Farrell Dillon, Spencer Horsman, Michael Finney, Peter Gossamer, John Cassidy and Drexus.

 

Currently America’s largest touring magic and illusion show with a cast of 25 people housed and supported on the road by 2 buses and 2 semi-53’ trucks. The live tour premiered in September 2011 and is on its 3rd season.

  Live to perform

The tour has played 80 shows in 46 venues, 26 states, 5 countries and 3 continents. The show begins with an audience interactive video.

Audience members become part of the live act as they are called on stage to assist with the illusions.

 

The award winning cast has been brought together to perform live to itsMasters of Illusion’s huge worldwide television audience. Masters of Illusion will have 13 new TV episodes to air in early 2014 on the CW network.

 

Alternative rock band, Live, will perform at Revel Casino Hotel’s Ovation Hall on Friday, June 20, at 9pm.  

 

Live's catalog is filled with hits such as "Lightning Crashes", "I Alone", "All Over You", and "Lakini's Juice"—which remained pillars of the nineties both musically and culturally. "The Dolphin's Cry" and "Overcome" ushered the group into the 21st century triumphantly. Live's got a whole new crop of songs on the horizon for 2013 that carry the same poetry, power, and passion as the group’s hits that have sold over 22 million albums worldwide and become a veritable concert juggernaut.

 

The York, Pennsylvania legends burst on to the burgeoning alternative scene in 1991 with their major label debut, Mental Jewelry. The band—lead guitarist Chad Taylor, bassist Patrick Dahlheimer, drummer Chad Gracey, and founding vocalist Ed Kowalczyk—infused heartfelt melodies with raw energy for an inimitable style that stood out from the early nineties pack. Live's sophomore set, Throwing Copper, reached #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and eventually surpassed sales of 10 million in merely two years. Rolling Stone and MTV both dubbed the album "One of the 25 Greatest Rock Albums of All-Time", while tastemakers from Spin to The New York Times lauded it with equal praise.
