Hypnotist Matt Hale: Top Fun 80's Spectacular 5***** - One4Review
one4review | On 10, Aug 2023
The big stage and almost sell out performance certainly promised a lot. Everyone loves a hypnotist but combine that with the very popular genre of the 80’s begs the question, could it live up to everyone’s eager expectations, absolutely!
As soon as you enter, the background music is of course the 80’s and the vibe in the arena is the feeling of an imminent party about to happen. Hale bursts on to the stage and the extravaganza begins, some 80’s classics played and Hale’s high level of energy instantly rubs off on you. He tests the audience with a quick 80’s Q&A in relation 80’s movie quotes before inviting volunteers on to the stage to be hypnotised.
Once the volunteers are selected and hypnotised, the show begins and moves along at a steady pace. Without spoiling the show, the volunteers, as expected, are subjected to various antics sending the audience into hysterics! The volunteers are the stars of the show directed by Hale throughout.
The finale is a joyous sing along incorporating the music of a whole host of 80’s artists including Michael Jackson, Queen, Kenny Loggins and Guns N Roses to name but a few.
‘A fun filled show that takes you back to the good times and has you on your feet dancing and singing to the music’
