Holograms of some of the biggest stars in music history, including Freddie Mercury, John Lennon, Morrissey and Jimi Hendrix will be part of a new London museum, due to open in 2014.

The Music Hall Of Fame in Camden, North London will give visitors the opportunity to perform with holograms of some of the biggest names in music of all time - and visitors will be able to take home their performance on a DVD as a souvenir of their visit, and interaction with their icon of choice.

"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," says project manager Lee Bennett in an interview with The Evening Standard. "I was at Coachella watching Tupac and it blew people's minds."

The Tupac hologram appeared at Coachella Festival in 2012, and was followed by one of Paloma Faith (despite not being dead).

"You can go and perform with your favourite bands - you can be up there with Nirvana, you can be up there with Morrissey on stage," adds Camden mayor, Jonathan Simpson, speaking of the project.
