What’s On can reveal Criss Angel will launch his brand new MINDFREAK Live show at Dubai’s Hamdan Sports Complex this November. 


Star illusionist Criss Angel is leaving Las Vegas to launch a brand new live show in Dubai, it has been revealed.

Audiences in Dubai will get to see Angel perform the mind-boggling stunts in his new MINDFREAK Live show live on stage before anybody else in the world.

Angel’s MINDFREAK television show regularly attracted over 100million viewers per season, and was syndicated to over 90 countries around the globe. Online views of his YouTube clips have surpassed 250million.

The illusionist will be performing outside of Las Vegas for the first time in six years when he launches his brand new live show with a three night stint at the Hamdan Sports Complex, from November 12 to 14.

The 90-minute show will incorporate spectacular optical illusions, a cast of multi-talented artists, original music, dynamic lighting and dazzling special effects.

“I’m thrilled to have developed my new show MINDFREAK Live and honoured to be world-premiering it in one of the world’s most iconic cities, Dubai. It’s been more than six years since I have performed live outside of Las Vegas, and I’m looking forward to debuting this spectacular and unique family show in the Middle East,” said Angel.

Thomas Ovesen, COO of promoters Done Events, said that luring Criss Angel out of Las Vegas to launch a brand new show in Dubai was evidence of the “increasing global stature” of the city’s entertainment industry.

“The scale of this theatrical show simply would not have been possible previously, but with the great support of the Hamdan Sports Complex, we are immensely proud to produce the first live entertainment event ever staged at this venue, which – with some structural tweaks made for the impressive MINDFREAK Live shows – essentially gives Dubai a world-class, dual use entertainment and sporting venue.”

The show will run for three nights only from Wednesday 12 to Friday 14 November. Tickets cost Dhs350 and are available now from doneevents.com and all Virgin Megastores.
