Criss Angel CUT HIS HAIR! Whaaa happened?
Sorry. Had to get that superficial tidbit out. Now on to more serious matters…
Illusionist Criss Angel was rushed to the hospital after passing out during his double-straightjacket act on Friday evening.
About 20 minutes into his MINDFREAK LIVE! show at the Luxor hotel, Criss dangled upside down while attempting to escape the straightjacket, but lost consciousness and was promptly lowered to the stage.
The curtain closed and guests where ushered out.
A rep for Criss said: “Criss Angel routinely performs some of the world’s most dangerous illusions and escapes live on stage. During Friday evening’s performance, while attempting his famed upside down straitjacket escape while suspended by his feet, he lost consciousness. He was lowered to the stage and rushed to the hospital where he was evaluated and released early this morning. He is undergoing additional testing today and while it is not yet certain, it is his hope to return to the stage in his hit show MINDFREAK LIVE! at Luxor Las Vegas tonight. He is grateful for the outpouring of love and concern from his fans around the world.”
Criss was released from the hospital but was unable to attend a scheduled appearance at a fundraiser for Make-A-Wish of Southern Nevada on Saturday morning. A rep for HELP, the non-profit organization that Criss founded to help find a cure for pediatric cancer, presented a $100,000 donation. Criss founded HELP after his two-year-old son, Johnny, was diagnosed with cancer. Johnny is now in remission.
He returned to the stage Saturday night and successfully completed the straightjacket stunt.
Members of the audience expressed their concern on social media, and shared that they were given full refunds.
Praying for @CrissAngel they had to cancel the show when he went limp doing a straight jacket trick, while suspended in air.
