Madame Tussauds Unveils New David Bowie Waxwork
Created in partnership with Bowie’s estate, the figure depicts the late musician in full Ziggy Stardust regalia. It was made using information from the star’s 1983 sitting, and is the second Bowie waxwork to feature at the museum. Fans of the icon of sound and vision will recognise the Starman’s signature red hairstyle, cosmic jumpsuit and celestial make-up.

The addition of the Ziggy Stardust completes Madame Tussauds London’s revamped Music Festival zone, which also features models of Jimi Hendrix, Stormzy, Ed Sheeran, Beyoncé, Dua Lipa, Amy Winehouse and Little Mix.
Tim Waters, General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, said in a statement: “David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust transcends generations and music genres, making him the ultimate headliner to launch our new Music Festival zone.
“We were honoured to work with his estate in what would have been his 75th year and play our small part in keeping his inimitable legacy alive for generations to come.
“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.”
