Kid Rock, the multi-platinum artist with album sales over 26 million, received another highly regarded accolade – a Madame Tussauds Wax Figure. The American singer, rapper, songwriter, musician and record producer came face to face with his wax figure at Kid Rock’s Third Annual Fish Fry recently held in Nashville, Tennessee on 6th October.
The $250,000 wax figure is dressed in a black custom made tracksuit with his alter ego name ‘Bobby Shazam’ embroidered on the back. His ‘American Badass’ belt buckle was also replicated which features a gold eagle with diamond inlaid wings. The figure is a permanent fixture within the Rock Bar setting alongside other musical icons such as Jimi Hendrix and Bruce Springsteen within Madame Tussauds Nashville, which opened in April in Opry Mills.
Kid Rock took time out of his busy recording schedule in April 2016 to meet a team of artists which flew over from London to Nashville to measure and photograph the All Summer Long singer for the hyper realistic wax portrait.
Kelly Field, General Manager of Madame Tussauds Nashville said “We are so delighted to officially unveil the figure of Kid Rock. The figure plays an important part within our attraction and we are absolutely certain that it will be a hit with fans and guests alike when they come in for that special photograph with him.”
At Madame Tussauds Nashville, guests are encouraged to have fun with the famous stars from musical genres such as Country, Rock n Roll, Blues and Pop. Additional figures hitting the stage at Madame Tussauds Nashville include Minnie Pearl, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley, Little Jimmy Dickens, Stevie Wonder, Louis Armstrong, Johnny Cash and CMT Nashville’s Rayna Jaymes and Deacon Claybourne.
