One Direction Wax World Tour Announced!
It's true! We've just confirmed that all five members of the phenomenally successful band, One Direction, are to be created as wax figures!
The figures will form a touring attraction which will kick off in three Madame Tussauds venues:
- London (18th April - 11th July 2013)
- New York (19th July - 11th October 2013)
- Sydney (24th October 2013 - 28th January 2014)
We have been overwhelmed by requests for us to feature One Direction. The boys have been top of the most wanted personalities list in London, New York and Sydney for the last 12 months, so we are delighted we can now bring their figures to each of these cities in a special ‘world tour’.
Louis, Liam, Harry, Zayn and Niall have been involved throughout the sculpting process and our studios team have had great fun working with them, taking hundreds of precise measurements and discussing the style their figures will be portrayed in.

Delighted to be getting waxed, Harry commented, "We're just kind of a bit overwhelmed. We've been to Madame Tussauds and seen the kind of people who are in there. It's crazy to think that we will be up there with them". Niall added, "We were super excited to find out that they were making us and that people felt we were worthy of figures.”
"An amazing honour"
Louis commented on how honoured he felt, "I think it's going to be quite weird to see yourself as a wax figure.
"But it’s an amazing honour to be there. If you look at some of the names that are in there. We are very proud."
"We actually first heard when we were over at Madame Tussauds looking at the figures so we were even more like WOW we're going to get one of these made. And they are so amazing as well!" added Liam.
