Beatles wax figures on world tour

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

The wax figures of 1960s British band Beatles are set to stroll from London's Abbey Road to Madame Tussauds here. To celebrate the 50th anniversary release of the band's first album.

"Please Please Me", which released in March 1963, the figures of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, late George Harrison and John Lennon, are now on a world tour. Popularly known as the "Fab Four", they went up to Sky Terrace 428 peak tower here for a 360-degree panoramic view across the city before continuing their walk along the classic "Abbey Road" setting at the city's Madame Tussauds. The setting is similar to their album "Abbey Road" cover, where the group traverse a zebra crossing . "The Beatles have always been an all-time favourite at the attraction," Kelly Mak, general manager of Madame Tussauds Hong Kong, said in a statement. "We are honoured to launch the new figures of the 'Fab Four' with the classic setting during this symbolic year, especially for all their fans out there. This is definitely an exciting addition to the attraction and we are looking to bring more new music icons to jam up the stage with them," Mak added. They will be on display from Tuesday till Feb 16, 2014.
