NORFOLK — Illusionist and street magic performer David Blaine is bringing his bag of tricks to Norfolk this summer on his first North American tour.

Blaine is set to perform his one-man show at Chrysler Hall on Sunday, July 9.

Known for amusing celebrities, street crowds and performing peculiar stunts with a calm vocal tone, Blaine was once electrocuted for 72 hours straight, buried alive, frozen and held his breath underwater for 17 minutes.

Tickets go on sale Friday, March 31 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at the the Scope box office, online, or by calling 800-745-3000.
