A new museum, called The Music Hall of Fame, is set to open in Camden, London next year, and will feature interactive holograms of a number of living and dead music stars.

Queen's Freddie Mercury, John Lennon, Morrissey and Jimi Hendrix will all be rendered in holographic form and visitors to the museum will be able to interact with the holograms, 'performing' with the stars. They will then be able to purchase footage of their meeting on DVD.

Speaking to The Evening Standard, the museum's project manager Lee Bennett likened the experience to the Tupac hologram which took to the stage during Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre's headline set at last year's Coachella festival in California. He commented: "You could be transported back to a specific moment of music or play with artists who are no longer alive, even playing back-to-back with a hologram. I was at Coachella watching Tupac and it blew people's minds."
