Freddie Mercury Is Going To Perform In Queen Musical!!!

Freddie Mercury optical illusion performing

Tupac isn't the only long gone musical icon that is miraculously performing again. We just heard that Freddie Mercury is coming back from the grave to the stage too!

Unlike Tupac's recent Coachella collaboration with Snoop Dogg, the legendary frontman of Queen will NOT be seen as a hologram, but rather "an optical illusion."

We're not exactly sure what that means, but it's probably going to be pretty cool because guitarist Brian May said, "People will come out saying, 'did we actually see Freddie?”'

The stunt will take place on May 14th at London's Dominion Theatre during the 10th anniversary of the musical We Will Rock You, a show based on the band's music.

It turns out that the band has been planning for Freddie to appear on stage again for quite some time. Brian May was actually a little bummed that Dr. Dre beat Queen to the punch with the Tupac hologram and explained:

"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. The hologram technique is something we've looked at ourselves but I think probably for a show that runs eight shows a week it's not really practical.”

You win some, you lose some. However, the fans of the artists being brought back to life through technology are the REAL winners because that's who this is all really for, right?

We're completely stoked for Freddie to come back and hope that we get a chance to see this "opitcal illusion" in action one day!

    the "tupac hologram" wasn't a really a hologram it was also an optical illusion. so freddie mercury's upcoming performance is pretty much gonna be the same technology. Brian May was just trying to be technical so most likely everyone is still gonna call it the freddie mercury hologram.
