Now that pop singer Sam Smith has found massive success in the music industry, it’s about time he’s honored with his very own wax statue. Later this month, the wax museum at the Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco will be unveiling a brand new wax Sam Smith to their “Music Zone.”
According to Business Wire, Madame Tussauds announced Sam Smith will be showing up among wax figures of other music icons like Elton John — including some more recently-famous musicians like Adele. The wax Sam Smith will be available for public viewing by August 10 of this year.
The General Manager of Madame Tussauds, Chris Connors, released the following statement about bringing a lifelike Sam Smith statue to the attraction.
“Madame Tussauds is honored to celebrate Sam Smith’s musical accomplishments here in San Francisco and to welcome him into our effervescent Music room. We can’t wait to offer his fans a chance to get up close to one of the best-loved singers of his generation.”
To tease the new addition to the wax museum, Madame Tussauds has released several photos and a video of Sam Smith being measured for his replica, including comparing his real eyes to the glass eyes that will be going in the sculpture. You can see Sam Smith getting the full treatment below.
According to Radio Alice, the opening of the Sam Smith wax sculpture will appropriately take place right after the singer performs at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park music festival, meaning the man himself will be in town for the unveiling.
Despite the fact that Sam Smith’s success in music has earned him the honor of a wax statue, the singer has recently decided to take a break from music to spend more time with his family. Sam Smith claims his parents have barely had the chance to speak with their son since he started touring in support of his chart-topping album In The Lonely Hour, and a few months of recovery from throat surgery made the pop star realize just how much he needs to take more time off.
Madame Tussauds San Francisco boasts some of the most lifelike wax replicas of A-list Hollywood stars, including musicians, movie stars, TV personalities, sports legends and other famous faces. For more information on the wax museum, visit the official Madame Tussauds website.
