Queen fans are in for a surprise... frontman Freddie Mercury will "appear" on stage during a special performance of West End musical We Will Rock You, Brian May has revealed.

The show will celebrate its 10th anniversary this year and bosses have been plotting ways to make the production memorable for fans.

Mercury, who died in 1991, to be part of the celebration will appear in the form of ''optical illusion of sorts", similar to that used of late rapper Tupac Shakur during Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's Coachella festival set last month.

May told the BBC: "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 special performance will take place on Monday (May 14) at London's Dominion Theatre - and Robert De Niro, one of the show's producers, will also be making an appearance.

May adds:"There is a certain person who's coming that's intimately associated with getting the production on in the first place - our friend Bob from Los Angeles. We call him Bob so we don't get too overcome with his stardom."
