Broken Wand - Roy Horn

Postby Mandrake » May 9th, '20, 10:40



Roy Horn, a member of the long-running magic duo Siegfried and Roy, has died aged 75 after contracting coronavirus. Roy and his German compatriot, Siegfried Fischbacher, were known for including including white tigers and other animals in their act.

They first worked in Las Vegas in 1967, and in 1990 began a run at the Mirage Hotel that lasted nearly 14 years. Roy was forced to stop performing in 2003 after a white tiger attacked him during one of their shows.

"Today, the world has lost one of the greats of magic, but I have lost my best friend," Mr Fischbacher said in a statement. "From the moment we met, I knew Roy and I, together, would change the world."
