His TV special, Darcy Oake: Edge of Reality, will be screened on ITV, Saturday, December 27, at 9.50pm.
Hosted by Christine Bleakley, the magical extravaganza takes place at the historic Blackpool Opera House and is full of breath-taking, logic-bending illusions in the grand old tradition of stage magic fused with Darcy’s modern twist.
The Canadian born entertainer, who finished fifth in this year’s BGT final, says he is working on a whole new act for the live shows next year.
He said: “I couldn’t be more excited to tour the UK and perform in so many amazing and historic venues.
“This country has been so welcoming that it’s starting to feel like home, and I can’t wait to share these new illusions with my fans, who have helped make 2014 such a tremendous year for me. Let’s make 2015 unforgettable!”
Oake will be heading out on his first ever nationwide UK tour with a series of thrilling live shows.
Emerging in the world of illusion as a new generation of contemporary mysticism he has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting performers in magic right now.
In June over 200 million viewers tuned in to Britain’s Got Talent to witness the birth of a phenomenon: the unveiling of an electrifying new illusionist.
From sleight of hand to death-defying escapades, this master magician grabbed the world’s attention, ushering in an exciting new era of an age-old art form.
He is a performance artist whose modern interpretation gratifies the hunger of audiences seeking spectacle and nail-biting feats of illusion.
Inspired by classic sleights of hand techniques, Oake transports the crowd to another dimension with exhilarating visuals and logic-defying exploits.
Since delving into the craft at the age of only eight, his fresh approach has earned him multiple awards, including the prestigious People’s Choice Gold Medal, which he received from the Pacific Coast Association of Magicians.
He has since gone on to become an international magic champion and headlined at the iconic Magic Castle, made numerous international television appearances, toured the globe and will now headline his first ever UK tour this Autumn.
The first leg of Darcy’s live tour will kick off in Sheffield and see him perform regionally across the UK with a grand finale at London’s Eventim Apollo.
