The famous Baker Street attraction is sharing these images to announce the creation of a new figure of the musical icon, a second Davie Bowie figure, in honour of his contribution to British music – to be unveiled in March 2022.

Madame Tussauds London has released never-before-seen images from David Bowie’s 1983 sitting.

David Bowiewho was born and grew up in London, had his first figure unveiled in 1983 during the height of his Let’s Dance era. Bowie was heavily involved in the original creation of his likeness, attending a sitting with Madame Tussauds London artists in June 1983 to provide hundreds of precise measurements, hair and skin colour references to ensure complete accuracy right down to the anisocoria that gave Bowie his signature gaze.

Named the ‘greatest rock star ever’ by Rolling Stone magazine, Bowie’s new figure will both honour and celebrate his immortal body of work and ongoing legacy and will be one of the exciting figures set to join Madame Tussauds London’s reimagined music zone, billed as a unique festival experience, launching in March 2022
