Lance Burton Injured -- Can't Make Pain Disappear

5/11/2009 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lance BurtonLance Burton is pulling the plug on several upcoming magic shows after breaking his right foot during a recent performance in Vegas -- but the more important question ... WTF is going on in that town?

The world famous magician -- who's also one of the highest paid performers in Sin City -- hurt himself so badly, he'll need surgery to recover. His rep says he'll be out of commission 'til June.

Obviously, Burton's busted footsie doesn't compare to the Danny Gans tragedy ... but if you're Carrot Top, might be a good time to get outta town.

Hmm, a broken foot, surgery, and only out until June, doesn't seem all that tragic to me....but I know he does many a show in Vegas so that's alot of $$$ out for this hotel and him (but really he's been there so long, like he's actually going to miss it -- ugh not).

At least his mom and dad moved closer to him last month. His dad was my parrish priest.

If you've every had a broken foot, and there may be more than one bone broken on him, and surgery, yes he can be outta commisons for 6-8 weeks. And its painful and even puffy after you get out of the cast.

Saw Lance's show at the Monte Carlo last summer. Loved his show;very family-oriented. He even pulls kids on stage during one segment. Hope he's feeling better soon.

Huh??? Lance's Father William (Bill) passed away a few yars go and his Mother Helma still lives in KY. I think you have the wrong performer.
