‘Band Of Magicians’ tours NZ


The four hottest faces of modern magic are set to bring a night of awe-inspiring entertainment when magic supergroup ‘Band Of Magicians’ tours NZ across August and September 2015.

This revolutionary and utterly contemporary magic show is unlike anything New Zealand has seen before. The foursome execute increasing impossible feats that draw on their collective talents, delivering fans a show that far surpasses anything a magician can accomplish alone.

The show features the mind-bending tricks that have made them famous individually, new illusions created collectively, multimedia wizardry and audience interaction. 'Band of Magicians' is a must-see for the whole family.

Band of Magicians is made up of James Galea (AU), Ben Hanlin (UK), Brett Loudermilk (USA) and Adam Mada (AU). This magical foursome is set to blow kiwi audiences away as they tour the country from August 20th.

"I can’t wait to hit the stage with Band of Magicians, says UK based Ben Hanlin. “The other 3 magicians are great guys on and off stage and we have some awesome magic planned. I’m so excited about making my New Zealand debut in this show as I know it’s going to be brilliant!”
