First ever live tour of New Zealand!

"The undisputed king of magic." - The Times

He's walked on water across the river Thames, levitated above the Shard, walked down the outside of the LA Times Building, made a car appear from light beams, predicted the Soccer World Cup outcome and taken a flight on the side of a bus.

Now, global television star and award-winning magician, Dynamo, is in New Zealand this week to announce his forthcoming first time ever 'Seeing Is Believing' Live New Zealand Tour.

TEG Dainty President and CEO Paul Dainty said he is thrilled to welcome the 'Seeing Is Believing' superstar to New Zealand for the first time: "Dynamo is a supreme master in the art of magic and has made unique connections with a global audience who have truly taken him to their hearts. The 'Seeing Is Believing' tour is one of the biggest box office of recent times, and it's a privilege to be working with a man of the people who has become the rockstar magician of this generation. It's a spectacular full production show and to say there's a wow factor would be an understatement! This is entertainment of the very highest order."
