Matt Fraser said he didn’t need any “powers of prediction” to know one day he would be playing the 2,000-seat stage venue at Hard Rock Northern Indiana in Gary.

To date, Fraser has already played capacity crowds when previously booked at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tampa, Hard Rock Atlantic City, Hard Rock Cincinnati, Hard Rock Sacramento and Hard Rock Biloxi.

“It was just a matter of time, and now, here I am,” said 32-year-old Fraser by telephone with his distinct Rhode Island accent, the same delivery means for his psychic relays of messages from deceased loved ones to clients and audiences.

“I was just in the Chicago area on March 14 for a similar event at Genesee Theatre in Waukegan. I love when I get to come to the Midwest. I’m sharing a gift to be able to communicate with the other side”

At 7 p.m. April 11, Fraser is bringing “his gift” to audiences at Hard Rock Casino Northern Indiana, and he said he is excited “about the energy he will capture from the gathered guests.”

“It’s not possible to get to every person in a theater who has questions, but I sure do my best to meet as many people as possible,” Fraser said.

Fraser established fans and followers when E! network premiered his 10-episode reality series “Meet the Frasers” in January 2020.

His original career was in the medical field as a trained emergency medical technician, but Fraser said he always knew he had other talents he had yet to explore.

“Even from a young age, I had the sense that I was able to communicate in a way that was beyond the ordinary,” Fraser said.

“I always knew I had a talent for healing, be it physical or help others to better understand themselves and those around them.”

He published his first book “The Secrets to Unlocking Your Psychic Ability” in 2012 and then a second book in 2020 titled “When Heaven Calls.”

His most recent book, “We Never Die: Secrets of the Afterlife,” was published in August 2022, which was a New York Times bestseller.

Fraser just finished his fourth book titled “Don’t Wait Till You’re Dead: Spirits’ Advice from the Afterlife,” which will be released in fall 2024.

Of his many television appearances, including “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” “Red Table Talk with Gloria Estefan” and “Real Housewives of New York,” Fraser said a 2021 appearance on the discussion talk show “The Doctors” ranks as his favorite on-air moment.

“Since I spent my earlier career in the medical field, I’ve always loved the TV talk show ‘The Doctors’ and grew up watching it,” Fraser said.

“To have the chance to be a guest on that show was something extra special for me.”

Emphasizing the difference and contrasts of ages’ old astrology, charting the stars to predict and prophesize, Fraser said he didn’t grow up reading his horoscope.

“I always sensed I had a special gift to communicate with those who have gone before us, but I spent much of my youth ignoring my abilities,” Fraser said.

“The first time I really started to think about cultivating my talent was during my senior year in high school when a bunch of friends all decided to go see a psychic, and I went with them.”

As for crossing paths with “psychic friends” and contemporaries, Fraser said he is friendly with Theresa Caputo, known as The Long Island Medium, and Tyler Henry, the latter of whom brought his own psychic stage event to Hard Rock Casino Northern Indiana in November 2022 before a sold-out audience.

“Theresa and Tyler are really the only two other psychics who travel and tour as I do to bring our stage events to audiences,” Fraser said.

“But anyone familiar with all three of us realize how different our techniques are and also our stage style for interacting with audiences.”

Fraser said he is offered appearances and guest star opportunities for television, but declines if “they are not my style or brand.”

“My work is all about healing and feeling closure to talk to those loved ones who we never had final time with for unfinished thoughts and messages,” Fraser said.

“But I get all of these offers to be on haunted and ghost themed television shows, and I’m just not interested. I want others to feel good and hopeful about what I’m telling them, not scared with scary music playing as the overlay while I’m talking on camera.”
