As a warm-up for his show at the Palace Theatre tonight, David Blaine visited a local firehouse for some 'sleight of hand.'

We are pretty lucky to have so many great shows here in the Capital Region and it is really awesome when the stars not only come to perform but spend a little time in the community. David Blaine did just that today when he spent some time with the brave men and women of Albany Engine 5 Ladder 1 in the South End today!

David stopped in to say hello, and of course, perform a little sleight of hand for the crew on hand! Kudos to David for coming to Albany to perform, more kudos for spending a little time to show appreciation for some local heroes.

You can see David perform some of his legendary magic at the Palace Theatre tonight at 8pm. You can get tickets and info here.
