Magician and Former Philadelphia Eagles Long Snapper Jon Dorenbos Returns to Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia on October 1


PHILADELPHIA (August 19, 2022) – With a magical act and a magnetic personality, former Philadelphia Eagles Long Snapper, Jon Dorenbos triumphantly returns to the Event Center at Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia on Saturday, October 1, 2022. Guests will get to experience the magic of this “America’s Got Talent” finalist first-hand when he returns to the City of Brotherly Love.

Jon Dorenbos played 14 seasons in the NFL, notably making the Pro Bowl twice as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. In 2016, Jon competed on “America’s Got Talent” where he showcased his skills as a slight-of-hand magician, making it to the finals and placing third overall in the competition amongst tens of thousands of competitors. He then put his talent on display as a guest on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” who quickly became one of his biggest fans and advocates. Jon has appeared on Ellen’s show in various capacities as well as on NBC’s “TODAY.” He retired from the NFL after he was diagnosed with a life-threatening heart condition requiring emergency open-heart surgery.

Known for his great sense of humor and positive outlook on life, Jon uses his skills as a magician and his incredible life story to inspire audiences around the world. He wrote a book entitled Life Is Magic that draws a roadmap for how to shut that self-doubting voice up by choosing happiness.

“I am thrilled to return to one of my favorite cities, Philadelphia,” Dorenbos said. “Philadelphians have always been the best, most loyal fans in football, in magic and on ‘America’s Got Talent.’ Returning to the Stadium District, my second home for so many years, to perform at Live! Philadelphia is just perfection. You can’t beat the energy in Philadelphia on an Eagles home game weekend.”

Dorenbos is currently headlining “America’s Got Talent Las Vegas LIVE” through September 11. He is performing to sold-out crowds with a cast comprised of previous winners, finalists, golden buzzer acts and fan-favorite talent.

The Live! Event Center is a new multi-use meeting, concert and event venue that will feature some of the nation’s best touring acts, comedians, championship boxing and other show-stopping entertainment at Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia. Upcoming headliners include:
