You heard it right! The new Daft Punk figures are set to electrify Madame Tussauds New York in celebration of the 10th anniversary of Random Access Memories.

French electronic music duo Daft Punk will “Get Lucky” with new figures at Madame Tussauds New York, the world’s famous wax museum.  The figures will live behind the DJ booth in the glitzy Glow party area. The room was inspired by New York’s famous party scene.

They will be there with stars like Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, Matthew McConaughey, and Rihanna.

Madame Tussauds gives fans another chance to meet famous people and shows that even the most famous people in the world are “Human After All.”

Madame Tussauds teamed up with the French DJ group Maison Disco to take over the popular Brooklyn club Avant Gardner.

The immersive event called guests to a night of live electronic music with an enhanced audiovisual experience. The show was the chance to reveal Daft Punk’s dual-figure.

In honor of their shared French roots, both Madame Tussauds and Maison Disco played timeless French House music from the 1990s and played a retrospective of the DJ duo’s career.

If you’re going to visit the Madame Tussauds Museum, you’ll notice the two figures are styled in custom-tailored replicas of Saint Laurent’s black sequined Le Smoking tuxedo suits designed by Hedi Slimane for Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories project.

Their last album came out 10 years ago this year. Each DJs wear matching replica gloves and gold and silver pyramid pendant chains. This shows the attention to detail that went into making the figures “Alive“.

As Daft Punk and Madame Tussauds both share French origins, this collaboration is a testament to the innovation and artistic brilliance of those that came before us and the ability of music and art to transcend global boundaries. We’re honored to welcome fans from ‘Around the World’ to the attraction to see their idols ‘One More Time’ and celebrate the legacy of Daft Punk and French House music. – Ben Shapiro, Marketing Executive at Madame Tussauds New York
