Roy Horn, superstar illusionist of the famous Siegfried and Roy Las Vegas magic show, was bit on the neck by a tiger on Friday night and was seriously injured. Immediately after the incident, Siegfried Fischbacher appeared on stage and told the 1,500 audience members the performance was canceled. Roy underwent emergency surgery last night and this morning he is still listed in critical condition.

The German-born pair perform six shows a week, 44 weeks per year and have been performing in Las Vegas for over 35 years. Their show is one of the most well known and most expensive in Las Vegas. In 2001, the duo signed a lifetime contract with the Mirage, but as of today the show is cancelled indefinitely.

Adding insult to injury, Roy Horn was attacked on the night of his 59th birthday.
