INDIANAPOLIS -- Magician David Blaine has postponed his scheduled Wednesday night performance in Indianapolis.
Blaine announced on his Facebook page that the show is being postponed "due to a family bereavement."
He was scheduled to perform at The Murat Theatre at Old National Centre.
Blaine is known for mesmerizing audiences with his magic, illusions, and stunts.
He's been buried alive for a week, encased inside a six-ton block of ice for three days, and had over one million volts discharged at him continuously for 72 hours from seven Tesla coils.
