Steve Aoki Visits His Madame Tussauds Wax Figure at Level Up at MGM Grand, Thursday, March 22

Steve Aoki was spotted with a familiar face Thursday, March 22 before his performance at Hakkasan Nightclub at MGM Grand: his own. The Grammy-nominated international DJ and producer visited his recently unveiled Madame Tussauds wax figure at Level Up before making his way into the club for his headlining show. The figure remained on display throughout the night, allowing fans to take photos as they passed, before returning to Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.

Madame Tussauds Las Vegas unveiled its new DJ Experience featuring Steve Aoki Tuesday, March 6, when the DJ himself became the first person to cake himself in wax form, before treating fans to a live set to launch the dance-party installation.

 

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.

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.

Photos: Trey Smith Celebrates his 21st Birthday at LAVO with Family

Sunday night Trey Smith, aka DJ ACE, celebrated his 21st birthday at LAVO in Las Vegas.  Trey arrived looking dashing in a suit and was joined by dad Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, siblings Jaden and Willow, Trey’s mom Sheree Zampino and her husband former NFL pro Terrell Fletcher, along with a large group of extended family and friends in LAVO’s main dining room.  They sang “Happy Birthday” to the guest of honor and dad Will was even seen goofing around and showing off some dance moves as the family gathered for photos.

Much of the group made their way up to the nightclub, where Trey manned the decks, spinning a skillful EDM set that had the whole club dancing.  A live feed of the nightclub action was streamed into the restaurant downstairs so Jaden and Willow could be a part of the night even though they are under 21.  Trey thanked everyone for showing up while his dad danced just behind the DJ booth.  As the clock struck midnight, Will jumped in the booth and got on the mic to wish his son a happy birthday while cryo guns blasted and confetti filled the air. A proud Will beamed, shooting video from the DJ booth of clubgoers dancing and the younger Smith was surprised with a cake as the crowd cheered.
