Blake Shelton Wax Figure Revealed on “TODAY” Show in Celebration of “The Voice” Premiere
Country superstar’s first wax figure appears on TODAY show
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 1, 2017) – Madame Tussauds, the world-renowned wax attraction slated to open its newest location in Nashville on April 14, and the “TODAY” show joined forces to reveal a never-before-seen Blake Shelton wax figure. In celebration of the premiere of “The Voice,” where Shelton is a judge, TODAY debuted the “Boys ‘Round Here” singer’s first-ever wax figure.
Blake Shelton’s life-like figure, which portrays the country superstar in present day, is outfitted in a pair of leather boots donated by Shelton himself along with a custom-made Takamine P5DC WB guitar modeled after his choice guitar. Shelton’s figure will appear in the backstage area of the attraction, positioned casually on a couch, allowing fans to kick back with the “Neon Lights” singer. His figure will be a permanent fixture at the Nashville attraction when it opens on April 14.
Each Madame Tussauds figure is truly a work of art, involving teams of professional artists and sculptors who spend months on extensive research and take more than 300 measurements to recreate world-famous icons, to achieve the kind of astonishing realism that has been at the heart of the 250-year Madame Tussauds legacy.
With a completely different concept, the attraction in Nashville will be the company’s first offering in the U.S. that focuses solely on music icons that have shaped America’s musical landscape. Guests are encouraged to have fun with the famous stars from musical genres such as Country, Rock n Roll, Jazz, Blues and Pop.
Additional figures hitting the stage at Madame Tussauds Nashville include Beyoncé, Billie Holiday, Blake Shelton, Bob Dylan, Carrie Underwood, Ella Fitzgerald, Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Cash, Katy Perry, Keith Urban, Kenny Rogers, Little Jimmy Dickens, Louis Armstrong, Miley Cyrus, Minnie Pearl, Rayna Jaymes & Deacon Claybourne, Rihanna, Stevie Wonder and Taylor Swift. More artists will be added to the bill within the coming weeks.
Guests can save $5 off the regular price by purchasing early bird tickets to the attraction.
