Post Malone with his wax figure | Madame Tussauds Las Vegas

The music world is abuzz with excitement as Madame Tussauds Las Vegas unveils the first-ever wax figure of Billboard’s current leading artist, Post Malone. Known for his genre-blending music and unique style, Post Malone has now cemented his place in pop culture history with this remarkable wax tribute. And where better to launch this one-of-a-kind wax figure than backstage at Post Malone’s debut at Gov Ball?!

On Friday, June 7, 2024, just after taking the stage for a rockstar performance that further solidified Post Malone space in the country genre, the Madame Tussauds team surprised the performer with a backstage meet-and-greet of his very own wax twin. Matching the huge smile of his wax figure, Post Malone was overwhelmed with excitement when he saw just how identical his figure was to himself.

“Are you f**cking kidding me?!” he exclaimed as he saw the wax figure for the first time. “I literally thought that was a person!” Post Malone was impressed with just how accurate his new wax figure was. “Oh my god!’ he repeated again.

Upon further inspection, Post Malone was “blown away” with the details on his wax figure, from using real hair - so real that the GRAMMY-nominated artist joked the Madame Tussauds team used real hair from his shower (they didn’t!) - and capturing the details in his tattoos ever-so-perfectly. “How do you do that?” he wondered in awe.

Post Malone’s mother also got to participate in the surprise backstage at Gov Ball. When asked what his mom would think about his new wax figure, Post Malone knew she’d love it - “I think she’ll want it,” he said. Who wouldn’t want more face time with the ever-so-busy Post Malone who has already topped the Billboard charts three times this year. 

When his mom got the chance to get up close and personal with the figure, she was truly shocked. “It’s awesome!” she exclaimed. 

The excitement around the wax figure was palpable at Gov Ball, where fans couldn't stop talking about it. Post Malone's performance at the festival was already a highlight, and the unveiling of his wax figure added an extra layer of excitement. It's clear that Post Malone's influence is not just in his music but also in how he connects with his audience through various mediums.

A Stunning Tribute to a Modern Icon

Stepping into Madame Tussauds Las Vegas is like stepping into the world of celebrities and icons, and the addition of Post Malone's wax figure adds a fresh, electrifying energy to the mix. Crafted with impeccable detail, the wax figure captures Post Malone's signature tattoos, his eclectic fashion sense, and that unmistakable charisma that fans adore. From his vibrant face tattoos to his relaxed, yet stylish attire, every element is meticulously replicated to honor the artist's unique persona.

Painters and sculptors meticulously crafted every hair, tattoo, and detail onto the figure - including the hair on his mole as Post Malone pointed out - to bring the charisma and charm of this award-winning artist to life. Post Malone’s wax figure is dressed in a black Tom Ford suede jacket, turtleneck jumper, black jeans, cowboy boots and crystalized belt. The singer donated the ensemble, replicating the iconic look he wore during his musical guest debut on Saturday Night Live in May 2022. Additional figure details include Chrome Hearts hoop earrings and ring, and in true Post Malone fashion, a beer-filled red cup.

Post Malone's wax figure will be part of a custom set inspired by the artist himself equipped with a neon pong table for Madame Tussauds Las Vegas to shoot their shot against the "Beerbongs & Bentley's" wax star. 

A Phenomenal Music Career

Post Malone, whose real name is Austin Richard Post, burst onto the music scene with his debut single "White Iverson" in 2015, and since then, he has been unstoppable.

His versatility is highlighted as he adapts his style to blend seamlessly with his collaborators, often taking a backseat to let their unique sounds shine. Despite his forays into various genres, Malone's pivot to country music seems to be his most successful move. His debut performances at the Country Music Association Awards, Stagecoach Music Festival and Gov Ball have solidified his presence on the Country charts, indicating that country might be a natural fit for his evolving musical journey.
