No More Siegfried & Roy
Beloved illusionist duo SIEGFRIED & ROY have officially announced their retirement over six years after ROY HORN was savaged onstage in Las Vegas by his pet tiger.
Siegfried Fischbacher made the announcement that the act is no more in a German publication on Tuesday (05Jan09), explaining there will be "no comeback".
The duo ended its run at The Mirage after Horn was left partially paralyzed following the white tiger attack in 2003.
The pair maintained the tiger was trying to drag Horn to safety after he suffered a heart attack during the show.
It is not known what will become of the duo's menagerie of animals, which currently reside at Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage.
