David Blaine is packing up and moving to the desert.
The Brooklyn-born magician announced Sunday that he was postponing an upcoming balloon stunt as well as moving to event from New York City to Arizona.
“David Blaine Ascension is beyond anything that I could’ve imagined,” the illusionist wrote on Twitter. “It’s also really complex so it will now take place in Arizona.”
Blaine called Arizona “the most beautiful backdrop that I’ve ever seen in my life,” in an accompanying video previewing the stunt where he hopes to reach about 18,000 feet suspended only by 52 weather balloons.
