Freddie Mercury to come alive at Queen showMay 13th, 2012 - 8:38 am ICT by IANS
London, May 13 (IANS) British rock band Queen has planned a special treat for their fans at their upcoming 10th anniversary show — an optical illusion that will make their late vocalist Freddie Mercury’s image come alive for the audience.
The band’s guitarist Brian May confirmed they will present a projection of Mercury’s image by using a special effect, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“People will come out saying, ‘did we actually see Freddie?’,” said May.
“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,” he said.
Other than Queen, bands like TLC and Jackson 5 have plans to do similar things in memory of their late members. The former want to bring back Left Eye to life, while the latter plan to resurrect Michael Jackson through special effects.
