IT has been over 20 years since Madonna graced Australian shores, and after years of rumours and hopes that she would return, the Queen of Pop is set to make an appearance in the form of not just one, but three wax figures at Madame Tussauds Sydney.
The three styles of the iconic performer and prominent gay icon represent Madonna from her most recent MDNA tour, as well as her Sticky and Sweet tour and the Like a Virgin look adored by fans around the world.
The wax incarnation inspired by her MDNA tour shows her in a dramatic performance pose wearing a fitted pin-striped trouser suit with a striking black metallic leather corset. The second figure portrays Madonna at the outset of her meteoric rise to fame in her 1984 MTV Like a Virgin bridal outfit, while the third shows her in the knee-high black boots, black satin jacket, fingerless gloves and cane from her Sticky and Sweet tour.
To have three different figures of one female performer is a first for Madame Tussauds Sydney.
“We are very lucky to be able to bring together these three extremely striking portrayals of one of the most influential and iconic contemporary music artists of all time and we know fans are going to relish the opportunity to meet not one BUT three Madonnas,” the museum’s website states.
The wax figures will be joining a cast of other popular gay icons, including Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and of course Australia’s own Kylie Minogue.
The Madonna figures will be on exhibition until October 2014. For details, click here.
