According to this report, he did. But from what I have heard it didn't work too well, if indeed at all!

[Quote from above Daily Mail report]

"And the night wouldn't be complete without the presence of one of rock's greatest front men, Freddie Mercury. He died aged 45 in 1991 but last night he appeared on stage in the form of a hologram, just like late rapper Tupac did on stage at the Coachella Festival last month."

have been looking around for anybody who may have posted a clip on youtube with the Freddie "appearance" but nobody has posted anything and some of the comments suggest that he did not appear

Wow, DeNero's wife looks like a tranny. I forgot about his "involvement" in WWRY.

I guess he put up some dough, but I remember at the presser when he was asked what his favourite Queen song and he looked panicked as he tried to think of one.

Apparantly he (freddie) appeared at the very end of Boh Rap but even on the clip i have seen i cant see him, unless a professional clip comes out that will be better

That pic of DeNiro laughing along with Brian and Roger is AWESOME.

Definitely a keeper.

So the hologram didn't work then? Very 'Spinal Tap'.

Just one small line "anyway the wind blows" was played from tape. But where was that holo-Fred?

Brian lied again probably.

shamar to jest tak, ze Brian mówil od poczatku, ze to nie jest hologram tylko 'iluzja'...mówil, ze to niby bedzie porównywalnie dobre jak hologram 2Paca ale to jest gówno prawda...w ogóle tego typu iluzje trwaja po te kilka sekund chyba ... oni na pewno tego od lat nie przygotowywali bo jakby to mieli tyle robic to predzej by ozywili Freddiego ... tam sie chyba pokazal zarys Freddiego albo czegos co niby mialo go przypominac ... nic wielkiego ... póki nie bedzie nagrania dobrego to lipa ... ale ta 'iluzja' teraz ma byc pokazywana co kazde 'anyway the wind blows' na kazdym musicalu WWRY, wedlug Briana hologram byl niepozyteczny jesli w tygodniu graja 8 wystepów chyba czy jakos tak bo jakos tak gadal nie wiem czy tam w miesiacu ... raczej w miesiacu... u dagi na forum poczytaj co MK napisal co Brian robil gdy on poprosil go o autograf ...

Most likely it was a ruse by Brian to get Publicity for WWRY and its anniversary and what better way to get than to announce that Freddie will appear by way of hologram/optical illusion/whatever it was and then only have maybe 2-3 seconds of him "appear"

@ Kacio -

I know that wasn't real hologram so I wrote "hologram". The same way Pac's thing wasn't real hologram.

Then it wasn't big deal (as Brian says) but just cheap 3 seconds FX trick ruined by light and smoke (as people says).

No-one record it. Was it so bad that they haven't noticed ?
