MADAME TUSSAUDS HONG KONG UNVEILS JJ LIN WAX FIGURE
- Tuesday 6th July 2021
- Madame Tussauds Hong Kong
- New Wax Figure
(Hong Kong, 6 July 2021) Multi-talented Mandopop superstar, JJ Lin, is the first ever Asian artiste to be honoured with his very own Madame Tussauds touring wax figure. Following the success of his permanent wax figures in Singapore and Chongqing, Madame Tussauds collaborates with JJ once again, featuring his new wax figure dressed in his Sanctuary World Tour outfit. The wax figure makes its debut in Hong Kong, before embarking on Asia tour to all Madame Tussauds attractions.
This latest collaboration between Madame Tussauds Hong Kong and JJ Lin’s Sanctuary World Tour is set to inject new energy into the attraction. Ms BoBo Yu, head of Marketing of Madame Tussauds Hong Kong, “Due to the pandemic, JJ hasn’t been able to fly and appear for events in person. But we know that fans have been hoping to see him for a really long time now, so we hope that this new wax figure will be the next closest thing that fans can look forward to. After the Hong Kong stop, the next stops will be in other attractions in Asia. JJ is definitely our Asian pride and choice!”
First ever virtual unveiling of wax figure
JJ’s Sanctuary World Tour which commenced in 2018, will conclude in the highly anticipated Sanctuary Finale online concert that will be globally broadcast this coming Saturday, 10 July. Last night (5 July), the award-winning singer-songwriter and producer took to his Instagram Live to meet with fans, and to do a live demonstration on how to better enjoy their concert experience this Saturday with its eponymous interactive wristband. In a surprising twist, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong joined in the live session, and both parties virtually unveiled JJ’s wax figure (wearing the Sanctuary Finale concert wristband as well), with JJ excitedly quipping, “This is too real!”
The playful singer reminded fans not to touch his fringe when they do visit and take photos with his wax figure. The session also saw wax figures of JJ’s close friends, Jay Chou and Jackson Wang, sporting the same interactive luminous wristbands for the concert. With all their wristbands in hand, JJ proceeded to perform a few of his hit songs to test its interactivity. Of the wax figure, JJ enthused, “I’m very excited for fans to meet my doppelganger. This is yet another beautiful memory added to Sanctuary World Tour”. Before the Instagram Live session ended, JJ also added, “This is the first time, and likely the only time you’ll get a chance to take a selfie with me in my concert outfit”.
