The Illusionists, biggest selling magic show in the world, will be coming to the UK in the autumn.

Starting in Blackpool at the Opera House and finishing with two London dates at Hammersmith Apollo, the tour across the country will include a performance at Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall on October 2.

The Illusionists launched in January 2012 with a sellout season at Sydney Opera House reaching an audience of 31,000 in nine days, then went on and “wowed” Mexico City with an audience of 42,000 in eight days.

The hand-picked cast of internationally renowned illusionists come together to create a blockbuster stage show featuring a stunning mix of outrageous and unbelievable illusions many of which have never before been seen.

It is now the UK’s turn to be encapsulated by these jaw-dropping acts of levitation, mind-reading, disappearance and escapes from the collection of performers dubbed ‘the greatest magical troupe in the world’ by Jonathan Ross.

The Illusionists are made up of Dan Sperry - The Anti Conjurer, Kevin James – The Inventor , Andrew Basso – The Escapolgist, Phillip Escoffey – The Mentalist and Mark Kalin - The Gentleman.

In addition, the team includes Jeff Hobson – The Trickster and Jinger Leigh – The Enchantress.
