Longtime Philadelphia Eagle to perform two additional shows in November

PHILADELPHIA — Aug. 27, 2018 — Following the success of his two sold-out shows this past weekend, Jon Dorenbos will continue to inspire Philadelphia fans with his “magic” life story at The Event Center at SugarHouse Casino on Friday, Nov. 2, and Saturday, Nov. 3, at 8 p.m. Tickets for “An Evening With Jon Dorenbos” go on sale Friday, Aug. 31, and cost from $45 to $65.

Also available for purchase is a $125 VIP meet-and-greet pass for an up-close and personal after-show performance by the NFL’s “magic man.” This includes a premium seat for the main show, which offers an intimate look into Dorenbos’ football career, entertaining magic and inspirational life story. Guests must be 21 years or older to buy these limited, exclusive tickets.

“It’s been awesome to continue to share my life story at SugarHouse for all of the Philly fans,” said Dorenbos. “This past weekend was incredible — I’m definitely excited for two more shows in The Event Center!”

“We are thrilled to welcome Jon Dorenbos and his inspirational show back to SugarHouse,” said Cheryl Duhon, general manager of SugarHouse Casino. “His interactive magic and storytelling engage audiences for a fun-filled and memorable evening.”

Dorenbos played in the NFL for 14 years, 11 of which were with the Philadelphia Eagles. In fall 2016, Dorenbos astounded the judges of “America’s Got Talent” with his combination of magic and uplifting stories stemming from his difficult childhood. His unique performances earned him a spot in the finals and a third-place finish in the competition among tens of thousands of contestants.

Practicing illusions since the age of 12, Dorenbos is a master magician who incorporates comedy and the love of football into his performances. Audiences experience a deeply personal and engaging show and discover the magic that has shaped Dorenbos’ life. From struggles turned into successes to lighthearted stories from the locker room when he was an Eagles player, Dorenbos delivers a night filled with fun yet insightful storytelling.
