Queen's Freddie Mercury To Be Resurrected On Stage

.
(Classic Rock) Queen guitarist Brian May has confirmed the band will use a Freddie Mercury hologram on a West End theatre stage and vows people will wonder if they really saw the star.

A digital projection will appear next week to mark the tenth anniversary of the band's musical We Will Rock You. The guitarist tells the BBC: "It's a little unfortunate they did that thing with Tupac as we've been trying to make Freddie appear on the stage for quite a while."

May points out the effect does not produce a true hologram and adds the musical won't use the technique employed at Coachella. "It's something we've looked at ourselves," he explains, "But I think probably for a show that runs eight shows a week, it's not really quite practical."
