The preparation of a new Criss Angel show does not mean the magician has made MINDFREAK disappear.

It’s going to be a beautiful show that’s going to speak to all pretty much all walks of life. … A show that celebrates life, and the value of life, and how one boy named Christopher who had big dreams was able to persevere through trials and tribulations to see this dream become bigger and better than ever. I think that’s a sentiment that everyone can relate to.” …
