Magician David Blaine will be performing in Bakersfield this spring, and that's no trick!

The death-defying illusionist will be stopping at the Rabobank Theater on May 7 as part of his "David Blaine Live" tour.

Tickets go on sale to the public Friday at noon on and Citi credit card holders will be able to get their tickets early, Tuesday at 10 a.m. through Thursday at 10 p.m. Go to for tickets and more information. 

More than just a magician, Blaine is also known for his stunt work and endurance performances, like the 73 hours he had an electric discharge of one million volts directed at him from seven Tesla coils in 2012, or the seven days and nights he spent underwater in 2006. 

The show in Bakersfield will be interactive and promises to "shock and awe" the audience, according to a press release. 

Tickets will be sold for $23, $47, $67, $77 and $97.
