LAS VEGAS - Four years after retiring, illusionists Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Horn say they may just reappear.

The German-born performers' long-running "Siegfried & Roy" production ended in October 2003 when Horn was critically injured on stage by a tiger.

"A good magician never lets the cat out of the bag," Horn told the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Friday for a story about the pair's possible return to show business. "Act surprised when you hear about it."

The tiger sank its teeth into Horn's neck and dragged him off stage in front of a horrified audience at The Mirage, ending one of the most successful casino shows in Las Vegas history.

Siegfried, 68, said retirement has had its hurdles.

"The stage is my life. It took some adjustment. I was really not ready for it," he said.

Siegfried said he marvels at Horn's dedication to his recovery regimen, which includes daily rehabilitation and trips to a gym three times a week, including games of racquetball....

Neither one are exactly spring chickens anymore, not that they are ready for the home either, but the gruel of a nightly performance and rehersals and the work it takes to put on such shows, I don't really see them returning to for any length of time. Maybe some short , smaller, return to say they did it, but I don't expect to see anything near the run they previously had.
I admire both as performers, but unless I'm mistaken Seigfried is 68, by the time they could get a big show back into production at least another year will pass, and at 69, the grind of a huge daily production stage show is not condusive to getting up bright and perky the next morning.
"Now here's the man with the 25 cent hands, that two bit magician..."

So they don't do a grind show with white tigers ... doesn't mean they can't take the stage and be entertaining. I'd pay to see it.

I agree. They didn't always use animals in their acts. I love to see someone overcome the odds.

There was a rumor they were going to do a show with Darren Romeo. Maybe now that his show is done, they'll recruit Hans Klok?
