Tyler Henry takes the stage May 29 at Mahaffey Theater.

ST. PETERSBURG — Hollywood medium Tyler Henry will present his “Life Lessons I’ve Learned from the Dearly Departed” Wednesday, May 29, 7:30 p.m., at Duke Energy Center for the Arts – Mahaffey Theater, 400 First St. S., St. Petersburg.

Tickets start at $39.50. Call 727-300-2000 or visit TheMahaffey.com.

Henry is the star of E! Entertainment’s hit television show “Hollywood Medium.” For the first time, Tampa Bay area audiences will be treated to his new live show. This exclusive show will feature Henry discussing his unique gift and how it affects his everyday life. The show also features a multi-media video presentation and lecture as well as live readings and audience Q&A.

According to his official website, Henry began receiving intuitive mental images when, at age 10, he foretold his grandmother’s death. In the years that followed, he cultivated his gift, sometimes by “reading” his classmates. During this time, word began to spread around his small hometown of Hanford, California.

As a teenager, Henry began thinking of a way to incorporate his gift into a career. He graduated high school early and began taking college classes to become a hospice nurse as he believed his calling was to help people comfortably transition to the other side. At the same time, he continued to improve his ability by doing private readings at a local bookstore.

Eventually, word of his talents reached Los Angeles where well-known celebrities began to request private readings. When Henry saw they shared the same feelings of loss and grief as all of his other clients, he recognized a kind of unspoken commonality between all people. As his clientele began to expand, an opportunity presented itself to bring his work to a much larger audience.
