Keith Barry returns to Athlone

Keith Barry is back, bringing his brand new show 'The Dark Side' around the country in January and February 2013 including a performance at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Athlone, on Friday, February 1.

Following on from his sold out '8 Deadly Sins' tour, Keith's new show will be his most controversial to date as he explores everything that encompasses 'The Dark Side'. Keith will take the audience on a theatrical rollercoaster ride where they will participate in astounding feats based around the occult, Ouija boards, remote viewing, past life regression, and unspeakable acts.  

He will open the door and invite the audience with him on this journey of exploration - are you brave enough to step through the door and journey with him?  

Unlike Keith's other shows, people can attend without the fear of being pulled on stage, as it is only the brave souls who openly volunteer to join Keith.

If you scare easily, then quite simply 'Don't come alone'. Keith said: "This show is a huge departure from my last show, The 8 Deadly Sins. With this latest venture I want to challenge people's belief systems and put them right inside the middle of a live thriller movie where they will have the wits scared out of them, but at the end of the show everyone goes home safe! I can't wait to open the door to The Dark Side - once in there anything can happen!"

'8 Deadly Sins' ended in September 2012 and saw Keith sell out 70 shows nationwide.

Keith served as a consultant on the new action thriller 'Now You See Me' which stars Woody Harrelson and Morgan Freeman and sees Keith play a cameo role in the film, which will be released mid 2013.2012 also saw Keith complete his first month long tour of Australia and New Zealand with a specially developed show 'Brain Hacker'.

The show toured all major cities with sold out audiences and standing ovations every night.

More recently, Keith signed a TV deal with one of Australia's most successful production companies which will take him back down under for four months to do a new TV series. 

Keith's hugely successful Discovery Channel TV show 'Deception with Keith Barry' has just started airing on Monday nights on TV station DMAX.

Work has now started on Keith's first book, as yet untitled, dealing with the sub conscious mind and our ability to programme it to help ourselves.

In 2009, Keith was awarded the prestigious Merlin Award for 'Mentalist of the Year 2009' from the International Magicians Society. Previous winners have included David Copperfield and Siegfreid & Roy.

Keith also earned the title 'Best Magician in Las Vegas 2009' as voted for by the Las Vegas Review Journal show critics.

Tickets for 'The Dark Side' are €30 including booking fee and are on sale now from usual outlets nationwide.
