Mindblown presents 'Matt Tarrant - Unsolved' running as part of Adelaide Fringe Festival at Gluttony: The Flamingo at 8:10pm from 27th February until 18th March. After sold out shows in the last 6 Adelaide Fringe Festivals, Tarrant returns to Adelaide with a brand new show.
Tarrant's opening routine was amazing, playing different parts of songs with numbers in them and throwing out cards from a deck, without looking, that matched the number in the song. He did this fast and the audience was amazed. This set the bar high for the rest of the show. Next he invited Bruce to the stage, Bruce has incredible mind-reading abilities and has hoped he would one day get to perform in Australia. I forgot to mention Bruce is a mind reading goose. This was very comical, yet the crowd was impressed.
Tarrant's show is literally unsolvable, you don't leave thinking I know how he did that, you leave saying how did he do it and how is that even possible. He prerecords his predictions months in advance and then knows things about people that he couldn't possibly know. He asked for a volunteer who was female and had lost a grandparent. He talked about his grandmother and how much he loved her stories and how she always believed in him. He is genuine and real on stage and left the audience with special knowledge. He invited a female volunteer to the stage who recently lost her grandmother 'Joan'. He asked the volunteer to open a box on stage and inside was another box, followed by another box and finally a small bag. Inside the bag was a coin that had been engraved with the name, Joan.
He gave an envelope to one audience member to hold while he invited another audience member to the stage. He then blindfolded himself while she colored in a poster of the show with five colors. After she was done he asked for the envelope back and inside was his prediction about what colors she would use, and where, and it perfectly matched her poster, leaving you wondering how this is possible.
He always has a spectacular finale and this year he asked six random people to stand up and pick a number between 1 and 40. Then he read out the numbers on a lottery ticket he bought a month earlier and asked if for people who heard their number to call out 'yes'. All the numbers were called out and the crowd screamed and clapped for Tarrant. I've seen this man every year since 2014 and he still amazes me with new tricks each time. He is incredibly talented and has a witty approach that the crowd just loves.
Unsolved is a must see show - 5/5 Stars. Don't miss your chance to see 'Matt Tarrant - Unsolved' at this years Adelaide Fringe.
