David Blaine is back in London says the Daily Mail. According to the article, "On a rare trip to London, illusionist David Blaine is going back to his roots - executing brilliant tricks with a pack of cards. Over dinner at Scott's in Mayfair, where guests included tailor Ozwald Boateng and TV host Claudia Winkleman, the New Yorker's sleight of hand allowed him to rip up a card and make it reappear untorn, 'bend' a 10p piece and munch on a wine glass." In addition he's reported to be scouting venues for a three month UK tour slated for 2011 with The Roadhouse being a standout favorite. "I like intimacy,' Blaine said. 'It helps the audience believe in what you are doing." The Magic Man may also make a trip to the annual Blackpool convention. • Kudos to iTricks for also covering a story deeply buried in another news piece.
