Las Vegas Strip magician Lance Burton canceled the Tuesday, April 13th performance to attend his mother’s funeral.
Lance Burton’s spokesperson said Hilma Burton, 73, died peacefully in her sleep at her home in Columbia, Ky. Lance Burton will attend her funeral and return for his show Wednesday, April 14, at the Monte Carlo.
According to the Las Vegas Fox affiliate, Lance Burton has no deal in the works other than to take time to fish and possibly produce a film based on a script written by the Magician himself.
The 50-year-old headliner announced this week that he is ending his run at the resort after nearly 14 years. Burton’s final show will be Sept. 4.
