Cairns Tourism News

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

In a history making event the star of ‘XTREME ILLUSIONS’ will predict the winner and the score of the Taipans vs Tigers basketball game on New Years Eve 2009.

On Monday December 28th, three days before the game, Sam Powers will make his prediction on paper in full view of local news camera crews
inside the Zinc FM studios. The radio host will sign the paper to ensure that the prediction cannot be switched or changed before the game. The
prediction will then be sealed inside a clear jar and locked inside a steel box. The steel box will be locked into a glass box making it impossible for
anyone to tamper with the prediction before the game.

“All my life I have been having premonitions and lately they’re becoming too real to ignore. I have been working on this stunt for five years and
NYE will be the first time I have ever tried it.” says Powers. Sam Powers and the Reef Hotel Casino are giving everyone attending the NYE game the chance to win $1000 of prizes if they can guess the winner. Every attendee will put their name and chosen team into a barrel before
the game starts. After Powers reveals his prediction, a lucky spectator will have their name pulled out. If they chose the winning team they take
home the prizes

Sam Powers will be the first magician in Australian History to predict the outcome of a major sporting event three days in advance, seal the prediction into a clear jar, lock the jar into a steel box and lock the steel box into a glass box and then hand it over to security. This approach leaves no avenue for ‘trickery’. Who is Sam Powers?

Genius, gorgeous and generous! Sam Power’s accomplishments within his ‘craft’ are undeniable and his inclusion as one of CLEO’s Bachelors of the Year (2006) is noteworthy – but it is also his philanthropic heart that we should not underestimate.

Check out his credentials! Five times Magician of the Year, twice nominated Entertainer of the Year in two different categories, appearances in 16 countries and television appearances with audiences to the tune of over ten million viewers. Most notably, Sam has raised an incredible $2 million for over 100 charities in his 14 year career.

Returning from a record breaking nationwide tour and a stint in Las Vegas, he is now in Cairns with his breathtaking new show, ‘XTREME ILLUSIONS’ which was recently voted “Best Theatre Show 2009” by his peers. Sam continues to raise money for charity during his extended season in Cairns. It’s easy to tell that Sam loves animals when you see how he interacts with them in his live show and he will use his magic to help ‘Animals Australia’ end the horrific practices used in Factory Farmed Pigs and Battery Hen Farms by donating funds from
merchandise sales.

About Xtreme Illusions – A Night of Breathtaking Magic

Prepare yourself for an action packed NIGHT OF BREATHTAKING MAGIC with Sam Powers in Xtreme Illusions, Australia's ONLY resident illusion show.

Xtreme Illusions is a dazzling Las Vegas style grand illusion show featuring spectacular illusions, stunning assistants, mind blowing magic and hysterical audience participation. Powers is a Multi-Award Winning ‘Magician of the Year’ and has entertained the likes of Elton John, Nicole Kidman and Jamie Foxx. Sam Powers Live at Velvet Underground in the Reef Hotel Casino, Cairns, Australia

Show Times - Monday to Sat 7:30pm. Rated PG
