Explaining his motivation for The Supernaturalists, Criss Angel says: “While there are other ensemble shows out there, performing many of the same illusions that have been around for years, my goal is to redefine magic touring like Cirque du Soleil did for the circus.

About Criss Angel:
For over a decade, Criss Angel has dominated the world of magic as the biggest name on the planet. His visionary approach to the art escapes the confines of tradition and has given birth to a new breed of modern mysticism. From his role as star, creator, Executive Producer, and Director of his hugely successful A&E television series Criss Angel MINDFREAK, to his countless television specials, books, retail products, music CDs, and more, Criss has redefined magic for the 21st century.

Prior to the premiere of The Supernaturalists™ in 2015, Angel unveiled his second production—featuring his first performances outside of Las Vegas in more than six years—with MINDFREAK® Live! The show’s sold-out premiere run of 18 shows were a huge success, selling out one month prior to its opening. Ticket holders for MINDFREAK® Live! can expect to witness 90 minutes of the most spectacular original illusions ever performed--woven with a cast of the most talented specialty artists, original music via DJ, state of the art lighting, LED virtual world, special effects, and so much more.

All the while, Angel will continue his wildly successful residency show--which began in 2008 in partnership with Cirque du Soleil, Criss Angel BeLIEve--as the show celebrates its 7th anniversary this Halloween. BeLIEve performs nightly Wednesday through Sunday (eight-ten shows per week) at the Luxor Hotel and Casino. Criss’ partnership with Cirque du Soleil and MGM Resorts International (he serves as writer/director, illusion designer, and star) has resulted in it being the #1 best-selling live magic show in the world since its opening, and has had over 2500 performances. The Huffington Post’s Lee Speigel calls it “The Magic Event of a Lifetime.”

His acclaimed series MINDFREAK on A&E is the most successful magic show in television history, resulting in more hours of magic during prime time than any other magic show ever.
