Siegfried and Roy magician dies of complications from Covid-19

Share

Roy Horn, half of the popular Las Vegas animal and magic act Siegfried and Roy, died Friday of complications from the coronavirus, according to his publicist. He was 75 years old.

Roy Uwe Ludwig Horn and Siegfried Fischbacher began their upbeat performances in Europe, later becoming regulars in Las Vegas, where they would perform for four decades. 

Their revue ended after Horn was attacked on stage by a tiger named Mantecore in 2003, severing Horn’s spine. Horn was eventually able to walk again, but he and Siegfried would only perform together one more time — for a benefit — before retiring in 2010.

“Today, the world has lost one of the greats of magic, but I have lost my best friend,” Fischbacher said in a written statement. “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.”
