Siegfried & Roy’s ABC Special Airs this Friday, March 6

If you were not among the 1,100 guests paying upwards of $7,500 for a ticket at the Bellagio last Saturday evening in Las Vegas when the Keep Memory Alive organization had their gala fundraiser for the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo siegried2Center for Brain Health that featured the supposedly last performance from Las Vegas iconic entertainers Siegfried & Roy, there’s still hope.  And even if you did attend, it’s well worth it to watch the hour-long “20/20” news magazine special on “Siegfried & Roy:  The Magic Returns” that airs at 9 p.m. this Friday, March 5, on KTNV-TV, Channel 13. 

ABC News’ Elizabeth Vargas visits with Roy Horn and Siegfried Fischbacher in their Las Vegas home and hears about the grueling five years endured by both of them since Montecore, the massive white Bengal tiger, mauled Horn during a 2003 performance at The Mirage.  Siegfried went through ‘caregivers syndrome’ – when people who take care of other forget to take care of themselves – and is reported on as well.
