If you think you see Freddie Mercury in the next few days, it might not just be Sacha Baron Cohen preparing for that biopic.
Queen guitarist Brian May revealed in an interview with the BBC that there would indeed be a visual representation of the late singer during a London performance of the musical We Will Rock You on May 14, though he abstained from calling the “effect” a hologram. In his words, Mercury’s rising will be “an optical illusion of sorts.” If you ask us, that sounds French for hologram.
And a damn good one, apparently. Said May, “People will come out saying, ‘did we actually see Freddie?’”
