    Just read an article stating a possible link between opioid use/misuse and pancreatic cancer. The study covered cases followed between 1996 and 2016. Time was you didn't hear of it at all. The first time I heard of it was Michael Landon in the early 90s.

    I agree 100%. My wife and I saw him at the secret garden in February 2016. He could not have been more gracious; talking to (and taking photos with) any adult and doing basic magic for any youngster.
    Having lived in the Cincinnati area since 1985, I have had many opportunities to see/meet Pete Rose; I avoided most.

    And, having lost a wife, a father, and a father in law to cancer in the last six years, I definitely agree that cancer sucks rocks!

    Never saw their show, but they were in the audience when we attended WOW at the Rio in October 2019. They looked fairly good then and received a standing ovation after the show when the theatre announced it was Roy's birthday. Was a nice tribute.

    Hopeful that some of the technology used to fight covid might be reused towards cancer.

    RIP. I'm not a show person to any degree, but I wish I would have seen theirs.

    I missed him, but my wife and sister in law met him at the Secret Garden a couple of years ago. Said he was so gracious. RIP seig1.jpg

    It saddens me greatly to lose a living legend .Siegfried and Roy were great magicians, very sad but I am sure they will be remembered in magic history .

    I was fortunate enough to meet Siegfried three years ago while visiting the Secret Garden. He graciously posed for photos with my family and chatted with us for a long while. He was a legendary Vegas entertainer, and one of my biggest Vegas regrets was not seeing his show even though I had several opportunities to do so. I'm truly saddened about his passing.

    MIL saw the show in mid 90’s at mirage. She loved it.
    Sad state of affairs when you see so many posts of how nice and gracious he was.
    She had gone backstage for one of those meet and greet things. It took awhile. . Said he (both were) was most polite and it took forever as he was quite chatty :p But reportedly that’s the way it’s supposed to be anyway. :oops: Glad he went beyond expectations.
     
    I hate needles so we’ll have to see.......but dislike funerals more

    Sarmoti , they always said that in their show it meant: Siegfried and Roy masters of the illusion.

    Seriously. Years ago my eye doctor told me to see the iconic shows while they are still around. She had recently seen S&R.

    I have got to see Wayne Newton if it's not too late.
