An optical illusion will appear in a performance of We Will Rock You this week
Brian May has revealed to the BBC that a new "effect" was going to be used at the 10th anniversary performance of the musical, We Will Rock You, tonight.
May revealed that 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."
