Here's Everything You Need To Know About Jeff Wayne's The War Of The Worlds

Written by Matilda Buckingham / November 23, 2017

To celebrate 40 years of the iconic masterpiece, Jeff Wayne's The War of The Worlds will be heading out across the UK again in the new year and we're MEGA excited about it. Wanna know more about what to expect from the show? Well, you're in the right place...

Based on HG Wells' dark Victorian tale, Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of The Worlds was released back in 1978 and was a HUGE success selling over 15 MILLION records, spending over 330 WEEKS in the charts and receiving TWO Ivor Novello Awards. 2006 saw the album brought to life for it's first live tour and the show has been wowing audiences around the world since.

The upcoming tour will see Jeff Wayne return to the stage as conductor alongside Liam Neeson as The Journalist in 3D holography and an exciting full cast to be announced soon. Audiences will be taken closer to the action than EVER before with the show built around an arched bridge running through the arena providing the most captivating and immersive live experience to date. The tour will also see the return of an iconic 35-foot tall Martian Fighting Machine firing real flames, an 100-foot wide 'Animation Wall' with 2 hours of EPIC CGI, ground-breaking levitation effects and a whooooole lot more.

In June 1978 my original double album was released. I had no idea if it would vanish as quickly as one can say… “ULLAdubULLA!”  But here I am today, soon to be celebrating its 40th Anniversary throughout 2018, culminating in what I believe will be the most exciting arena tour we’ve ever performed. No one would have believed…
