|Queen: We Will Recreate You|

It was only a matter of time till another iconic performer rose from the grave to receive the same awe inspiring and slightly controversial treatment as rapper 2pac did at Coachella. The next deceased artist slated for this venture of technological wonder is none other than former charismatic Queen singer, Freddie Mercury, who passed all the way back in 1991.
The big reveal, for better or worse, will take place at the tenth anniversary of the band's musical "We Will Rock You."It’s stated by guitarist Brian May that though similar in showmanship, Mercury will not appear as a hologram, but merely an optical illusion that "reunites" with the stage.
Apparently this desire of sorts has been in the making way before the recent milestone was even a pipe dream. It’s uncertain if this will be a single outing, due to staggering costs, but on May 14th spectators will feast their eyes on Mercury’s likeness at London’s Dominion Theatre. The possibility of future performances will depend on the success of the event.
Brian May y u no honor bandmate's legacy???
this stuff is silly.
2.0Pac was more than enough

i love queen, but this is stupid
Digging: Daylight - Jar
this is weird and just feels wrong tbh
It's cool that the tech is good enough to recreate things, doesn't mean it should be used though.
Digging: Marilyn Manson - Born Villain
We can rebuild him....we have the technology
What the fuck .................
Honestly I think all this stuff is cool as hell.
It would be stupid for bands to go around touring with holograms or whatever they are, but I think everyone is lying who says they arent at least interested to see some of these dead dudes up on stage again, even just one time.

Forget some zombie apocalypse. It's gonna be freakin' holograms and shit.

Just wait, Nirvana will get this treatment too.
I really can't say that I'm a big fan of this idea.

Oh I'm not either, but The possibility of future performances will depend on the success of the event leads me to believe they're curious about how this will sell; if it takes off I could easily see Nirvana happen.
queen has typically been very anal about who gets the okay to use
anything from their catalog. they've done it to protect the legacy of
freddie mercury, so they say, so this is rather hypocritical. they're
already making a big screen biopic, is that not enough to honor him?
Brian May is such a berk
Doing this with Nirvana would give me the chills
I don't understand any of this controversy or disapproval. I highly doubt Freddie would be upset about this if he knew it was going to happen after he died/was told it was happening back on earth from the afterlife.
This hologram shit needs to stop.
first time with pac didn't bug me but it's on the way to being stupid.
there's absolutely no way dave grohl would ever agree to a Cobain holo. ever.
but courtney totally would and doesn't she control some of his shit.
Yeah looks like Cobain is next.
who would go see nirvana without dave and krist? especially considering the fact that dave will likely be vocally against any such event... do you remember dave's grammy speech?
Just because you can doesn't mean you should!
"do you remember dave's grammy speech?"
what did he say?
"To me this award means a lot because it shows that the human element of music is what's important. Singing into a microphone and learning to play an instrument and learning to do your craft, that's the most important thing for people to do.
"It's not about being perfect, it's not about sounding absolutely correct, it's not about what goes on in a computer. It's about what goes on in here [your heart] and what goes on in here [your head]."
Recently I saw an article on comcast.net that the Jacksons are looking to make a holo version of Michael Jackson to bring on a couple shows with them or something.
I wonder what version of black or white michael jackson they'll pick.
I was wondering the same thing andcas
New musicians think they are competing with every twat who has internet connection...
If only it was that simple. Be prepared to compete with the legendary dead now, too.
The money will go to, like, Sony, or Apple image projectors or some shit. You guys are really deadset on fucking up culture, every last one of you
You guys probably sound a lot like early detractors of various technology such as being able to record video or even audio.
If any of you have a Queen concert album or DVD you enjoy, I especially find this ironic. I see this as just another way to relive something, or get the next best thing to it if you weren't there to see it at the time.
I would much rather not ever see a singer I idolize perform than watch a recreated hologram of him.
There is no soul, there is no interaction, there is no show. Instead of fabricating moments of a dead performer, go out and let another living one surprise you
Assuming this trend continues Michael Jackson is a surefire resurrection.
"You guys probably sound a lot like early detractors of various technology such as being able to record video or even audio."
one major difference, that was necessary, this is definitely not.
yeah there's a difference between recording a song you wrote and bringing dead musicians back to the stage in hologramatic form.
rimmer wasn't happy until he became hard light, and we're a long way off that.
Courtneys trying to make a deal for a Cobain hologram as we speak.
^oh god no, really? that's the last straw, she must've killed him.
Till is when you take an implement such as a tiller or a shovel, work it into the earth, and break up the top soil.
'til is a contraction of until.
Pull the sticks out of your asses, after seeing the Tupac performance, I'd say this is a good way to honor Freddie Mercury not dishonor him.
Sounds kinda cool to me.
"one major difference, that was necessary, this is definitely not."
That, sir, is a riot.
I maybe speaking for myself here, but i'd rather keep the performer in my memory rather than recreate a fake version of him.
People are going to want this technology sometime decades down the road to use in order to remember their loved ones in a new way that might make them feel happy to have so ya'll might as well get used to the idea of this happening in one fashion or another.
I won't. It would probably make me more depressed to be honest. How could you be happy with a fake recreation of someone.
I wouldn't myself lol
Like my comment if you sang "WE WILL RE-CRE-ATE YOU!" in your head.
Tehe rate and subscribe!
whar es liek butotn
yeah, if this becomes more popular they'll definitely bring back the king of poop
"Like my comment if you sang "WE WILL RE-CRE-ATE YOU!" in your head."
I so did that, although it didn't go as smoothly
you guys picked up on my play of the title. good job.
Money makes the world go around.
Don't know what to think about this...
