You Knew It Was Coming: Hologram Freddie Mercury Will Soon Take The Stage With Queen

So we’re now beginning to see what Hologram Tupac — in addition to a possible Hologram Tupac tour — has wrought: Freddie Mercury will be taking the stage with Queen in an upcoming performance in London. Just don’t call him a hologram, okay?

Reports the BBC:

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…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.

F*ck you, Brian May — we will call him “Hologram Freddie Mercury” and you will like it! The resurrection performance will take place May 14 at London’s Dominion Theatre.

I’m telling you this is only the beginning — we’ve not even scratched the surface with this freakshow. Just wait until Ronald Reagan comes trotting across the stage at every GOP convention from here to eternity.
