Media Invite: A Night of Magic at Raffles with Joe Labero

Last Saturday afternoon, Daddy Li and I watched our first ever magic show!

Following the success of 'Incanto' in 2013 and 'A Night of Magic At Raffles' in 2014, Joe Labero has returned to Singapore with a brand new fiery show from 16 January - 22 February 2015. The famous four-time Merlin Award Winner together with fire artistes, Burnt Out Punks definitely dazzled us audience that afternoon!

I've only ever seen magic shows on the television, and that was when I was a kid. In fact, my dad even got someone to teach me a few magic tricks before! But all that's very different, so being able to watch a magic show live was definitely a whole other experience.

Even though it was a two-hour show, the normal me would have been complaining mid-way through about when the performance is going to end or that my bum is hurting and that I need to move around..well, no complains! From the levitation tricks, chain sawing a man in half, and even  watching Joe Labero escape being crushed by a "claw" in 60 seconds, it just made us want to see more. The entire performance went so seamlessly even with the huge props required for the different tricks. What's more, Joe Labero and the Burnt Out Punks did such a fantastic job entertaining and interacting with the audience which made the show that much more fun to watch.

We were left fascinated from the numerous magic tricks and illusions by Joe Labero as well as the fire and acrobatic performance by Burnt Out Punks that most of the time I was trying to figure out how they did it while Daddy Li was sitting there in awe and clapping away! Like seriously now, Daddy Li doesn't usually get impressed very easily, so to see him clapping away, it's kind of a sign that this show's definitely worth catching!

If you are thinking of catching Joe Labero and the Burnt Out Punks create a fiery punk circus show that combines old favourites with brand new illusions whilst taming nature's most powerful element - fire, you can purchase tickets to catch A Night Of Magic at Raffles via SISTIC.
