Vegas mainstay magicians Penn & Teller are bringing their show to Atlanta for the first time in two decades October 10.
They will appear at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.
Tickets go on sale on Friday, February 8 at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster. Pre-sale starts at 10 a.m. Wednesday. Prices are $38 to $78 before fees.
For 18 years, Penn & Teller have performed at the Rio off the Strip in Vegas where they have their own theater seating 1,475 people. Their unique style of magic removes a partial curtain from the artifice of magic tricks while still doing magic tricks.
Penn Jillette, 63, is the gabby host. Teller, 70, is known for never saying anything on stage as if he were in a silent movie. They have worked together for 40 years.
They make regular TV appearances and are currently on the CW with “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” where magicians try to fool Penn & Teller. It has run five seasons.
They espoused a libertarian capitalist bent on their 2003-2010 Showtime show “Penn & Teller: Bull****.” It covered topics ranging from alien abduction to lie detectors to animal rights to organic food to the War on Drugs.
The last time Penn & Teller performed in Atlanta was at the Ferst Center at Georgia Tech in 1999.
