Madame Tussauds London unveils new David Bowie waxwork

A new waxwork of David Bowie has been unveiled at Madame Tussauds in London as part of the attraction’s ‘Music Festival’ experience.

Created in partnership with Bowie’s estate, the figure depicts the late musician during his iconic Ziggy Stardust era. It was made using information from the star’s 1983 sitting, and marks the second Bowie waxwork to feature at the museum.

As for the newly-updated festival area, Waters continued: “With our new Music Festival experience, we’ve captured the magic of live music, with legends you literally could not see perform together anywhere else, in a way that only Madame Tussauds London could.

“There’s also the added bonus of no muddy fields or main-stage clashes to contend with.”
