See the Beatles exhibit at Madame Tussauds Sydney
18 Jul 2014
There's the chance to see waxworks of The Beatles in Sydney at the moment.
The city's branch of Madame Tussauds is currently home to a late 1960s themed wax version of the well-known group.
The sculptures have come to Sydney from Tokyo as part of a tour and are set to head to San Francisco come September, meaning their time in Oz is limited.
Visitors can stand with George, Paul, Ringo and John and create a personalised LP cover at the museum.
Madame Tussauds has a long history with The Beatles. They were the first rock group to become waxworks for the museum brand and first had sittings with it as far back as 1964.
The Beatles are perhaps the world's most famous band, behind hits like Please Please Me and Get Back.
Madame Tussauds is far from the only museum in Sydney, of course. As you would expect from such a famous location, there are a wide range of places to see exhibits there, such as the Museum of Sydney on the corner of Phillip and Bridge Streets and The Australian Museum.
The Beatles Tour Sydney
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah - The Beatles are back in Australia!
50 years after their first visit to Australia, Sydney welcomes George, John, Paul and Ringo again. Celebrating their arrival, The Beatles ‘walked’ in line across a pedestrian crossing in front of Sydney’s Opera House to re-enact the iconic Abbey Road album cover.
Back on tour, just like they were in 1964, the fab four have just landed from Tokyo and will be part of an interactive exhibit at Madame Tussauds in Darling Harbour. The visit will be for a limited time only however, as the group will jet off to San Francisco for the last leg of their tour in September.
The exhibit features the band in their late 1960s-era styling and allows fans to stand in line with the band to create their very own personalised album cover.
Just like their whirlwind tour five decades ago, these four iconic wax figures will only be on show at Madame Tussauds Sydney for a limited time. Not only can guests interact with the famous four, but can also recreate a moment of Beatles history in their very own Abbey Road album cover.
An Iconic Band
Madame Tussauds first held sittings with The Beatles in 1964, and were the first ever rock band to be featured at Madame Tussauds. For the new touring figures, the Madame Tussauds studio team have used a combination of the sitting measurements and additional image research including a number of image references from the 1969 Abbey Road photo shoot. The style of the figures is based on their styling around the time, not long before the band's dissolution in 1970.
