Madame Tussauds & Freddie Mercury
Freddie's look is inspired by his outfit at his 1986 Wembley Stadium performance. An outfit fit for a King...or Queen!
Freddie's trademark ‘bottomless mic’ happened by accident, his mic stand snapped mid-performance at a show during his early career but he chose not to replace it!
