Freddie Mercury to 'join' 'We Will Rock You' cast

Friday May 11, 2012

Brian May has revealed that Freddie Mercury will return to the stage in optical illusion form. 

The guitarist told the BBC that Queen fans will be able to see the iconic star retake the stage during the tenth anniversary of hit musical We Will Rock You.

As the show celebrates its landmark the people behind it want to make the spectacle bigger and better than ever before.

Brian said: "People will come out saying, 'Did we actually see Freddie?'.

"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.

"(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."

The extra special performance will be held at the Dominion Theatre in London's West End on May 14.
