AVICII WAX FIGURE UNVEILED AT MADAME TUSSAUDS
October 8, 2019
It was only a matter of time before Madame Tussauds unveiled a wax figure of EDM legend Avicii.
Yesterday Madame Tussauds NY exhibited the iconic DJ’s wax figure with fans gathering to honor the moment. According to Billboard, the making of Avicii’s wax figure was slightly different as generally over 200 measurement are taken of the person. In this case, “Designers instead studied hours and hours of footage, catching Avicii at as many angles as they could to create the proper dimensions and to really capture the vibrant energy with which the DJ and producer delivered his most memorable performances.”
Tom Middleton, general manager of Madame Tussauds NY, said “We are always looking to create those celebrities who have made a significant impact on their field, and I think that it’s easy to see that Avicii is one of the most iconic musicians of our generation,” adding “For us, it was the perfect opportunity in conjunction with his family to really celebrate his life and his career and allow guests to relive some of this icon’s most notable performances.”
Tim Bergling’s parents, Klas Bergling and Anki Lidén gave a lot of inputs and were “deeply involved” in honoring their son. The exhibit even showcased some of the icon’s most memorable shows.
