The War of the Worlds, is a live stage show of Jeff Wayne’s LP 'Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds', released in 1978.
Beginning in the UK and Ireland in April 2006, Jeff Wayne conducted the musical score, whilst a virtual Richard Burton performed as the character of The Journalist, with Russell Watson appearing as Parson Nathaniel. The live show toured Australia and New Zealand in 2007, with Australian Idol runner-up Shannon Noll appearing as Parson Nathaniel. 2008 marked the 30th anniversary of the release of the album, which led to a ‘30th Anniversary’ tour of stage show with Jennifer Ellison as appearing as Beth. In 2010 and 2011, the show starred Rhydian Roberts as Parson Nathaniel, Jason Donovan as The Artilleryman and Liz McClarnon as Beth.
2012 saw Wayne release a second concept album, ‘Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds – The New Generation’, and it led to another massive musical tour. A virtual Liam Neeson starred as The Journalist, and Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson was announced as the Artilleryman. Marti Pellow was added to the cast, as Sung Thought of the Journalist.
The War of The Worlds live musical show will hit UK arenas in late 2018. Catch the show live by checking out the tour dates and ticket information on Stereoboard below.
