MGM-Mirage: Duo is not coming back

LAS VEGAS -- Just weeks after performer Roy Horn of the famed "Siegfried & Roy" duo was mauled onstage at the Mirage by one of the act's signature white tigers, MGM-Mirage senior vice president Alan Feldman acknowledged that there was "not any possibility" of the pair returning to their stage.

The MGM-Mirage management will need "a long time to try to figure out" what to do with the space that was the 1,504-seat Siegfried & Roy Theatre, he said.

The stage was custom-built for the show and isn't suitable for any other act.

Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Horn signed a lifetime contract with the Mirage in 2001 and racked up more than 5,700 performances of their show since they opened at the resort in 1990.
