With a festive twist…

The Illusionists graced us with their magical appearance back in 2015 and they are returning to Abu Dhabi this year in December with a whole new brunch of tricks up their sleeves.

The world-renowned magic group will be performing at Etihad Arena on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island for three days from Friday, December 8 to 10. Ticket prices start from Dhs95 and are available here.

Yes, we know that the festive month is long away, but we foresee that The Illusionists: Magic of the Holidays will be one that fans of magic won’t want to miss. Their performances have been known to leave the audience scratching their heads and gasping, “How did they do that?”.  Since it is the holiday season, the show will feature magic with a festive twist.

The production will feature some of the most talented and creative magicians from around the world who push the boundaries of traditional magic shows. The Illusionists incorporate technology, comedy, and even… audience participation.

You can expect disappearing acts (and reappearances in unexpected places), mind-reading feats and daring acts that will leave you on the edge of your seats.

Have little ones? Don’t need to hire a sitter as audience members of all ages are welcome to catch the show, too. Do note, little ones over the age of two require a ticket.

The show has been seen by millions of people around the world, so you don’t want to miss out.

Upcoming shows in Abu Dhabi

December is quite a few months away (though we expect it to pass by in the blink of an eye), but there are plenty of other shows to look forward to.

At Etihad Arena, there’s Monster Jam taking place this weekend on May 13 and 14, rock & roll icons Guns N’ Roses are headlining on  June 1, and Paw Patrol will be wagging their tails on stage from June 8 to June 11. Check out all the performances for the rest of the year here.
