MINDFREAK Live is a wildly entertaining show that seamlessly weaves sensibilities of theatrical performance and thrill of a magic show. Criss Angel’s take on the act of sawing a woman into two halves with a metal blade right in front of your eyes, with sparks flying from the stage amid screeches and screams is absolutely mind blowing. Angel carries over some of the classic illusions like asking an audience member to choose which of the eight motorcycles will appear in a box, as he makes it happen! The most astonishing and heart stopping act of the show is, of course, his own levitation at the end. The show is authentic, but surreal at the same time, ensuring that you are completely hypnotized.

Criss Angel MINDFREAK Live by Cirque du Soleil Reviews

“If there's one thing Angel has always been good at, it's the thought and calculation he puts into each live show. He's not driving to come up with something bigger, better or crazier simply to have that next big thing. Instead he produces a performance that plays to his strengths, inspirations and the message he wants to send.”

“There’s always something new in “Mindfreak Live” as Angel is constantly adjusting his show for his many fans that return again and again, but you’re always going to see the unbelievable illusions that he’s known for, including his famous floating finale where he hovers over and under a ladder and inside a plexiglass sphere. It’s exactly the kind of performance that makes you want to come back and watch it all over again”
