Former Philadelphia Eagle returns to The Event Center for two nights only

PHILADELPHIA — May 29, 2018 — After performing for sold-out crowds and receiving standing ovations earlier this year, longtime Eagle Jon Dorenbos returns to SugarHouse Casino this summer for two inspirational magic shows. “An Evening with Jon Dorenbos” will entertain Philadelphia fans in The Event Center on Friday, Aug. 24, and Saturday, Aug. 25, at 8 p.m. Tickets for his must-see performances go on sale Friday, June 1, and cost from $45 to $65.

Also available for purchase is a $95 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.

“The Event Center at SugarHouse Casino is a fantastic venue with a lot of energy — I love it here,” said Jon Dorenbos. “Philly has the best fans, and I can’t wait to continue sharing my story!”

 “We are ecstatic to welcome back a Philadelphia fan favorite for two more spectacular shows,” said Linda Powers, vice president of marketing at SugarHouse Casino. “Jon Dorenbos continues to keep audiences entertained and on the edge of their seats — and after all, Philly Loves a Winner!”

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.
