X Japan’s Yoshiki Unveils His Wax Figure at Madame Tussauds

Yoshiki, leader of legendary visual rock band X Japan, attended the unveiling ceremony of his wax figure in Madame Tussauds Hong Kong earlier this week. Astonished by the striking resemblance and lifelikeness of his wax figure which is being shown in Hong Kong for a limited time only, Yoshiki couldn’t help asking himself, “Am I looking in a mirror?”

Considered Asia’s most influential musical artist and biggest rock icon, Yoshiki is a songwriter, drummer, classically trained pianist and composer. He is the leader of one of Japan’s most successful rock bands, X Japan, which has sold more than 30 million singles and albums combined and filled the 55,000-seat Toyko Dome a record 18 times. In addition, X Japan recently won a Revolver Golden Gods Award as Best International Band. Beyond X Japan, Yoshiki’s diverse musical achievements range from composing and conducting for the 2005 World Expo’s opening ceremonies, to writing the theme song for the Golden Globe Awards that aired in 190 countries earlier this year.

Yoshiki’s wax figure is dressed in one of the rocker’s and took approximately four months from the first sitting to completion. Madame Tussauds’ team flew to Paris and London to get Yoshiki’s accurate measurements right down to the finest details like his eye color and hair style. Hundreds of photos were taken as reference. “When I met ‘the other me’ for the first time in Tokyo last year,” said Yoshiki during the ceremony,” I was amazed by the true resemblance. It looks exactly like me! And I feel honored to have my wax figure exhibited in Hong Kong. It has been months since I last visited Hong Kong to meet the media and my beloved fans here. Today is definitely an important moment I have been looking forward to”, said Yoshiki.

The wax figure of Yoshiki will be displayed in Madame Tussauds Hong Kong from May 26 through to the end of 2012.
