Madame Tussauds Washington, DC will welcome three distinct figures of legendary music icon, Michael Jackson, for the all-new experience, ‘HIStory: The Legacy of Michael Jackson.’ On Monday, August 29, 2016 at 5:00p.m., the attraction will unveil the three MJ replicas alongside memorabilia from his heyday at the Mansion on O Street. As a celebration for the King of Pop, guests can wander the Mansion posing with MJ’s figures, learning new things about the pop icon and enjoying so with a drink in hand on what would have been his 58th birthday.
Each figure in the experience embodies a different, prominent chapter in Jackson’s career – The Jackson 5, ‘Bad’ and ‘HIStory’. The youngest figure of the bunch depicts Michael in his earliest stage as a member of Jackson 5, as he dons a psychedelic yellow 60’s inspired outfit and his iconic afro. Michael’s ‘Bad’ figure is modeled straight from his notorious music video, dressed in a black jumpsuit decorated with gold buckles and a microphone in hand. The third figure is based on MJ’s ninth studio album, ‘HIStory’, featuring Jackson in the ‘90s, wearing an all-black uniform, a silver armor-like vest, complete with a headset microphone.
Jackson was a known fan of Madame Tussauds and visited a number of the wax attractions around the world throughout his life. He was often seen posing with not only figures of himself but also those of his personal idols including Charlie Chaplin. To date, there have been 18 figures of Michael Jackson created in the Madame Tussauds estate. Remarkably, Jackson features in more attractions than any other celebrity (not including Madame Tussaud herself).
