Freddie Mercury Hologram Coming to West End's WE WILL ROCK YOU
According to the BBC, Queen frontman Freddie Mercury will be making a return to the stage the West End production of WE WILL ROCK YOU- via hologram. Mercury, who passed away in 1991, will appear in an optical illusion for the show's upcoming 10th anniversary. Queen's Brian May told the BBC that the hologram "is something we've looked at ourselves but I think probably for a show that runs eight shows a week it's not really quite practical."
He continued: "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."
