US – The Mirage pays homage to the legacy of Siegfried & RoyBy Lewis - 28 August 2020
As The Mirage reopened its doors to the public this week, guests now turn off the Las Vegas Strip onto Siegfried & Roy Drive when they arrive at the property.
The street was officially renamed for the Masters of Illusion, who were renown for their record-setting performance run at the resort from 1990-2003. Roy Horn died earlier this year, at the age of 75, due to complications from Covid-19.
“I’m touched by this honor and I know Roy, if he were here, would love to see our names permanently placed above The Strip,” commented Siegfried. “The Mirage was our performance home for so many years and this city has always meant so much to both of us.”
The new street name was unveiled in conjunction with the reopening of The Mirage after a five-month closure due to the global pandemic.
MGM Resorts CEO Bill Hornbuckle, said: “Siegfried & Roy helped us launch The Mirage and it is fitting their legacy helps us reopen today. Their incredible show played a tremendous role putting The Mirage on the map. Today, we put them on the Las Vegas map, forever.”
