How the public reacts to new trends in music and technology will be a defining moment for the music industry as it looks to shift how deceased artists are portrayed, and some reaction should be generated tonight.

Queen guitarist Brian May revealed in an interview with the BBC that there would a “visual representation” of the Queen’s late front man and legend Freddie Mercury during a London performance of the musical We Will Rock You tonight, though he stopped short of calling the ”effect” a hologram. May describes it as“an optical illusion of sorts.” So a hologram May, right?

“It’s a little unfortunate they did that thing (hologram) with Tupac as we’ve been trying to make Freddie appear on the stage for quite a while,” May continued. ”(This style) 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.”

May was also quoted as saying, “People will come out saying, ‘did we actually see Freddie?”

What do you think Playmakers? Will this hologram trend continue and is it a good thing?
