Legendary Las Vegas entertainer Roy Horn died from complications of COVID-19.
Horn's longtime performing partner, Siegfried Fischbacher said, “Today, the world has lost one of the greats of magic, but I have lost my best friend. From the moment we met, I knew Roy and I, together, would change the world.”
Siegfried and Roy were known for their spectacular illusion show in Las Vegas that featured big cats. Horn was infamously attacked on-stage at The Mirage by a tiger in 2003.
Although the production closed after the incident, Siegfried and Roy were still two of the most famous magicians in the world.
“There could be no Siegfried without Roy, and no Roy without Siegfried,” Fischbacher said. “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 Mountian View Hospital who worked heroically against this insidious virus that ultimately took Roy’s life.” Roy Horn was 75 years-old.
