Well I was fortunate enough to be a part of David's show on Dec.14 in Vancouver BC. I was one of the lucky people to be one of 3000 people to go on stage for "13" (his vanish of 13 audience members). Wow, what and experience.

However, here is the kicker. When I approached the stage I was asked if I was a Magician and I said "Yes" I am an IBM member of approx. 9 years and was immediately "Cleared?" to continue. At the top of the stair I was taken to stage right to have a seat on a stool and act as a witness to the vanish of the 13 other audience members (note another gentlemen was taken to stage left to do the same). I was curious as to the opinions of some members as to whether I was "excluded" from entering the illusion or whether I was a trusted individual that could play the part of a spectator without the fear of "blabbing.

I was at a vantage point where things could be seen that were not able to be seen from the audience's view, but after the effect I was simply returned to my seat without further discussion, whereas the other members were taken backstage and spoken to about the importance of keeping the secret and given 3 suggestions on how to tell others what they had experienced.

Anyways, this post is long enough, just wondering if anyone elese has had the experience?
Regards,

Shawn

I saw the show in Edmonton on December 7 and one member of the Café was one of the 13 vanished and he said that they had to sign a piece of paper to keep the secret. Glad I made the first show because he was too exhausted to do them all in Edmonton. Smile Smile Smile Smile

That's funny because I am a juggler and I was pulled up on stage at a Micheal Moschen concert. A lot of my friends were there and they were waiting for me to steal the balls from him. After the show I talked with him and he was glad that I didn't in fact steal from him.

"and he said that they had to sign a piece of paper to keep the secret."

I think I would refuse and promise to call the local paper in the morning unless I was paid. Smile

Only joking...I think.

My girlfriend's dad was one of the 13 and still wont breathe a word. He did have to sign somthing but the reason he doesn't tell is because he and "David" are good friends now... Aparently Mr Copperfield spoke with each of them; they got 3 suggestions too, each based on what level of closeness the person asking is. In other words if it's a stranger you tell them this, if it's a friend you tell them this and if it's family you tell them etc. He still hasn't told his wife (my pseudo-mother in law). I love to bring it up and watch her turn red, it drives her nuts. Smile

Last year, I caught one of the balls, but because I'm not 18, I gave it to my mom (at the same time the music stopped.) She did the whole illusion, and said that they showed about 3 other plans that would also make the illusion work (to make them feel like they were really being let in on some secrets) and made them promise not to tell. But they didn't have to sign anything.

Hello!!
Well, I caught the small silver ball here in Germany (Stuttgart) got to go up on stage and right two letters (A and S) on David's Arm. Then I got to see his disappearance from behind, it was great!!! After the show an assistant took me backstage and I talked with David and Chris Kenner. Did anybody else catch the small Ball???

Didn't get to catch the small ball, but did get to see the "Flying". All I can say is "Fabulous!"

Hey Daff'!

Several years ago, I actually got to "play" with "Flying" after the show (I worked in the show locally, as a stage hand, 3 years in a row), on the closing night, as we were about to take it down...one of DC's crew had me help him pack up the "IT" (not really IT, but good enough), and was I amazed!

Even a few feet away, with no backdrop, you cannot see a thing! Talk about high-tech...John Gaughan's a genious! Too bad they retired that...it's the only rig like it I've ever seen...even Peter Foy was impressed from what I've heard.
