"Queen guitarist Brian May has revealed that Freddie Mercury will "appear" on stage during a special performance of West End musical We Will Rock You.
He told the BBC that the production team had been working on ways to give the late singer a presence during its 10th anniversary show for some time.
May stressed the new "effect" was not a hologram, calling it "an optical illusion of sorts".
"People will come out saying, 'did we actually see Freddie?'" he added.
The guitarist hinted the musical might employ a similar technique to the one used to make the late rapper Tupac Shakur perform on stage at the Coachella music festival last month.
"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.
"[That 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 quite practical." ......."

The whole evening is going to be a belter - 10th year anniversary gala performance with celebs galore, rock n' roll party dress code, after show party with band and maybe Freddie appearing - what could be better?
See you on Monday, come up and say Hello Barb.

Not sure if we ordinary fans are invited to the "aftershow party with band", Gary. I definitely want to meet you again, we can arrange something in a private conversation.

All hilariously on point sarcasm aside... If FM's instructions to Jim Beach are accurate...then at least "his beloved....(Laughs) musical" will be fine.

I can only hope Brian will become a hologram soon - you can turn a hologram off without anyone complaining.
