Katy Perry in Montreal
Katy Perry in Montreal – Katy Perry has sold more than 100 million albums around the world; now she is in Montreal—sort of— thanks to the sculpting abilities of Eric Saint Chaffray and the Grévin team. The wax lookalike of the pop star was unveiled this past Wednesday with many of her fans in attendance.
The process to complete the wax ‘twin’ of Katy Perry took six months. She is presented wearing her “iconic Prismatic World Tour outfits.” At the unveiling of the wax sculpture Kathleen Payette, chief executive at the Grévin Museum said: “We are so excited to welcome Katy Perry to Grévin Montreal. Her wax figure is completely inspired by her colourful pop universe, and we are overjoyed with the result.
We sincerely hope her fans in Quebec—and all over the world—will be happy!” (Indeed the artist will be performing in Montreal very soon at the Bell Centre, so her wax figure is a good anticipation of the ‘real thing’ coming soon).
The Grévin Museum is located on the 5th floor of the Montreal Eaton Centre, metro McGill, and it is managed by the Compagnie des Alpes. It opened in Montreal in 2013, and since then there have been similar establishments open in Prague, Seoul, and Vevey.
Opening hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets are $22 for adults, $20.50 for seniors, $16 for children 6 to 12 years old. $18 for teenagers and students, and free for children under 6.
