Yeah, Yeah, Yeah – The Beatles Are Back in Australia

July 2, 2014 Attraction No Comments Email Email

50 years after their first visit to Australia, Sydney has welcomed George, John, Paul and Ringo again. Celebrating their arrival, The Beatles ‘walked’ in line across a pedestrian crossing in front of Sydney’s Opera House to re-enact the iconic Abbey Road album cover.  

Back on tour, just like they were in 1964, the fab four have just landed from Tokyo and will be part of an interactive exhibit at Madame Tussauds in Darling Harbour. The visit will be for a limited time only however, as the group will jet off to San Francisco for the last leg of their tour in September.

The exhibit features the band in their late 1960s-era styling and allows fans to stand in line with the band to create their very own personalised album cover.

“Just like their whirlwind tour five decades ago, these four iconic wax figures will only be on show at Madame Tussauds Sydney for a limited time. Not only can guests interact with the famous four, but can also recreate a moment of Beatles history in their very own Abbey Road album cover,” comments Quinn Clarke, General Manager, Madame Tussauds Sydney.

Madame Tussauds first held sittings with The Beatles in 1964, and were the first ever rock band to be featured at Madame Tussauds. For the new touring figures, the Madame Tussauds studio team have used a combination of the sitting measurements and additional image research including a number of image references from the 1969 Abbey Road photo shoot. The style of the figures is based on their styling around the time, not long before the band’s dissolution in 1970.

There’s something for everyone these holidays at Madame Tussauds Sydney.  As well as Beatle-maniacs being able to re-live Abbey Road and create their own album cover photo with the fab four, soccer fans, who can’t get enough World Cup action can jump on the field to take on Beckham and Ronaldo in the brand new interactive soccer set.
