Mat Franco Tickets/ Mat Franco Las Vegas
Mat Franco is the first and only magician to win NBC’s America’s Got Talent with a mix of eclectic tricks and illusions. At the age of 10, he started developing his own shows and performances and has been working to perfect his craft ever since. His journey has brought him to the LINQ Hotel & Casino, where he has been headlining Magic Reinvented Nightly for the past two years.
Like the name of his show suggests, no two performances are the same. From inventive magic tricks to pyrotechnic displays, to disappearing acts, Mat Franco finds a way to shock the audience every single time. Watch as he performs never-before-seen card tricks, illusions, and more.
If you’re brave enough, you can even participate in the show. At every performance, Mat calls upon audience volunteers to assist him in aweing the crowd. Get up on stage and help him as he uncovers secret tattoos, turns a dollar bill into a butterfly, and starts a never-ending flame.

Mat Franco Magic Reinvented Nightly
Mat Franco has a successful show on the Las Vegas Strip for the past year and a half in the newly remodeled Linq Casino and Hotel, which was the former Imperial Palace. His show is unlike any other on the Strip and pulls from many of the popular tricks he performed on AGT. The name of his show “Magic Reinvented Nightly” is the perfect title because, without giving away any surprises, every show is different but…oh, darn it, I really can’t say any more. But I do recommend the show. It is done with pure skill and personality. The focus is not on the props, dancers or music but focused on the performer himself. And he is riding high on the success of his TV appearances.
