The BBC has the latest update on the continuing hologram-- excuse me, "optical illusion"-- story: The late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury will appear at a staging of the Queen musical "We Will Rock You" in London on May 14. Queen guitarist Brian May stressed that Mercury won't appear in the same hologrammed fashion as 2Pac, though. "It's an optical illusion of sorts", he told the BBC. "People will come out saying, 'did we actually see Freddie?'" I have a good answer for anyone asking that question.
Also, May is calling firsties on this one: "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", he said. This is just like the Russians and the Americans racing to land on the moon, all over again.
The musical performance will celebrate 10 years of showings of "We Will Rock You" at London's Dominion Theatre. Robert De Niro, who's produced the show in the past, is scheduled to make an appearance.
