Criss Angel Launches

Shortly before Christmas, I reported that injured illusionist Roy Horn had purchased two horses for magic partner Siegfried Fischbacher and him so that they could ride together and help in his recovery therapy. I am now delighted to report that Roy has accomplished his goal of being able to ride for an hour each day.

Thursday night at the opening of Vegas Magic Theater in the Gold Coast, Siegfried told me, “Roy is doing so well. He hit the 1-hour mark yesterday. He’s totally enjoying it. It is so good for him, and it’s amazing to see. Both of us -- and his therapists -- are really thrilled with his horse-riding progress. All very encouraging.”

Meantime, “Mindfreak” magician Criss Angel is warning South of the Border fans to beware of an unscrupulous promoter promising that our Luxor headliner will be in Mexico for shows.

Criss says he doesn’t know anything about it nor does his manager, and they aren’t leaving the Cirque du Soleil show “Believe” at the Luxor to travel there for magic performances. No Criss in Mexico, whatever the promoters say, so don’t buy their tickets.
