Freddie Mercury To Take the Stage with Queen

Posted by - 12:22 PM on 05/12/12
It looks like a Freddie Mercury hologram will take the stage with Queen when the band performs next Monday for a special show commemorating the 10th anniversary of the hit jukebox musical We Will Rock You.
From the Article"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," guitarist Brian May told the BBC, adding that Mercury's hologram will not employ the same technology used by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg to bring the late rapper to life at Coachella last month.

May wouldn't elaborate, but called the "effect" being used "an optical illusion of sorts."

The future: No one ever really dies, they just cease to live and we immediately replace them with holograms!

That's okay, we can just make a hologram of it.
