Fans were excited by surprise guest performer Desiigner, who joined Aoki on stage for a special rendition of “MIC Drop” and “Panda,” but the night’s showstopper was the DJ’s mother, Chizuru Aoki, who took to the stage to cheer on her son and celebrate the unveiling of his wax figure.

Following his set, Aoki participated in a meet and greet, and gave an encore performance of “I Love It When You Cry,” after meeting a fan visiting from Austria donning a tattoo of the song’s title.

“Being at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas means a lot. Vegas is my home now and I play here all the time,” said Aoki. “To be on the Strip at Madame Tussauds, where my fans can visit and get behind the decks with my wax figure, is a big deal. I’m going to come by every day and check myself out.”

In true Aoki-style, his figure holds laser cannons that project digital beams around the room and wears customized denim pants from his own Dim Mak collection.

Steve Aoki met with Madame Tussauds artists in May 2017 for a sitting where they took more than 200 hundred measurements and photographs to perfectly match his body, face, skin, hair and teeth. His figure joins Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, Will Smith, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and more at the Las Vegas attraction.
