Read Siegfried's Statement on the passing of Roy Horn 1944 - 2020
“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. There could be no Siegfried without Roy, and no Roy without Siegfried. 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.”

Siegfried and Roy headlined at the Mirage Resort and Casino in Las Vegas from 1990 until 2003. The show was regarded as the most-visited show in Las Vegas when a career-ending injury ended both magicians careers.
Siegfried and Roy were born in Germany and met on a cruise ship. They emigrated to the United States and together became Las Vegas Icons and the world's most famed magic-duo.
