JEFF WAYNE’S MUSICAL VERSION OF THE WAR OF THE WORLD’S 40TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR

 

HG Wells dark and gothic tale comes to the Metro Radio Arena and it brings with it a star studded cast. Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of The Worlds remains a firm favourite to millions around the world.

 

The show will again feature a stellar cast with Jeff Wayne returning to the podium to conduct the 9-piece Black Smoke Band and 36-piece ULLAdubULLA Strings, while Liam Neeson retains his role in 3D holography as The Journalist.

 

Star of stage and screen Jason Donovan returns to the role of Parson Nathaniel alongside West End actress Carrie Hope Fletcher as Beth, his wife. Actor and theatre star Adam Garcia will debut as The Artilleryman, British singer-songwriter Newton Faulkner will perform The Sung Thoughts of The Journalist, Inglorious front man Nathan James will play The Voice of Humanity, with Anna-Marie Wayne reprising her role as Carrie, The Journalist’s Fiancée.

 

Built around a huge arched bridge running through the centre of the arena brings the action closer to the audience for a most captivating and immersive experience.

This production, mixed live in Surround Sound, will once again feature:

  • The iconic 3-tonne, 35-foot tall Martian Fighting Machine firing real flame Heat Rays at the audience.
  • A 100-foot wide 'Animation Wall' with 2 hours of cutting edge CGI.
  • A ground-breaking levitation effect.
  • The incineration of a cast member in full view of the audience.
  • Leaf drops over the audience.

…and much, much more!
