If you ever had the opportunity to see them perform at The Mirage in Las Vegas, you know “Siegfried & Roy” put on an awesome show. Unfortunately, Roy Horn might forever be most famous for being attacked by one of his pet tigers.
On Friday, Roy died due to complications from COVID-19.
From Fox News:
“Today, the world has lost one of the greats of magic, but I have lost my best friend,” Siegfried Fischbacher said in a statement obtained by Fox News. “From the moment we met, I knew Roy and I, together, would change the world. There could be no Siegfried without Roy, and no Roy without Siegfried.
Siegfried added, “Roy was a fighter his whole life including during these final days. I give my heartfelt appreciation to the team of doctors, nurses and staff at Mountain View Hospital who worked heroically against this insidious virus that ultimately took Roy’s life.“

This is sad.
Soon after I got to Vegas, there were no bigger stars on the Strip than Siegfried and Roy.

I’ll be honest – based on current 2020 options available, I really thought that Carole Baskin would be his cause of death before Covid-19.
Rip. 🙁 #siegfriedandroy

Roy Horn, one half of magic duo Siegfried & Roy, passed away today of complications from COVID-19. Seeing those shows with my family in Vegas when I was younger was always fun and so memorable. My condolences to his family & fans alike. Stay well out there. 😞🐯 #SiegfriedandRoy pic.twitter.com/QbAxVLbwzD
