Queen Doesn't Want To Tour With Freddie Hologram
The musical, built of course around the music and "spirit" of Queen, tells a fantastical tale on music and the influence of new digital technology on rock and roll as it takes place in a dystopian future where everything is programmed and nothing sounds human anymore.
Even though it's purely fictional the satirical approach of the show paints a picture of what many cynics might see as the path rock music is taking. "It's a fantasy, but it's based on the history of rock and roll where you are, and the future of rock and roll," he said.
May also spoke at length about the idea of another Queen tour featuring a hologram of Freddie Mercury, who would "perform" right along with the band. May doesn't like the idea, mainly because it would make him, Roger Taylor and the others feel more like an exhibit at the Museum of Science than a rock concert.
"I don't want to be touring with a hologram," he said. "It makes you feel like museum pieces, and we're not fossils, we're alive."
May added that it "just wouldn't feel right" and that he finds it more interesting to tour with a similar-sounding live singer like Adam Lambert anyway. more on this story
