The illusionist, who gained worldwide publicity by seemingly hovering 15ft off the ground alongside a moving double decker bus in London, flew into Sydney yesterday and is due to travel to Melbourne at the end of the week
He will appear on Channel 7s Sunrise breakfast show tomorrow morning and TV producers are encouraging Sydneysiders to go to the Plaza in Martin Place, in the city’s CBD, from 8am. He will also provide some distraction for office workers at lunchtime at the same place between 12pm and 1pm.
INGDirect who is sponsoring the Sydney event has promised the audience will be treated to some ‘gobsmacking’ magic.
The Bradford-born illusionist, whose real name is Steven Frayne, has attracted a host of celebrity fans with his stunts, including Manchester United’s soccer star Rio Ferdinand, comedian Matt Lucas and actress Lindsey Lohan, who have all appeared on his TV show Dynamo: Mission Impossible. With Lohan and Lucas, Dynamo appeared to make them levitate.
However, one of his most incredible tricks was ‘walking across water’ on the River Thames. He appeared to walk a distance of around 100 metres towards the middle of the Thames before being picked up by a police boat.
He also left onlookers stunned when he asked doormen at a party in London to hold his coat to screen him from view and then he seemingly walked through a solid glass window pane into the street and walked off.
Other stunts include diving from the top of the LA Times building and stopping in a horizontal position just before the ground and lifting 155kg weights at a gym, despite his slight frame.
But despite his amazing talent, some of the best moments of Frayne’s popular TV show, is watching the horrified faces of those witnessing his stunts.
On Twitter Dynamo, aged 30, who has more than a million followers, seemed to be excited at the prospect of coming to Australia, prior to his arrival when he tweeted: “Morning #Dynamites about to fly to Australia. Shout out to all my Australian followers!!!”
