DON’T MISS the spectacular FINAL Arena Tour of Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of The Worlds – Alive on Stage in 2014, throughout the UK!
Conducted by Jeff Wayne, the most ambitious production yet will feature Liam Neeson in 3D holography, Jason Donovan as Parson Nathaniel, Westlife’s Brian McFadden as The Sung Thoughts of The Journalist, Les Miserables’ Carrie Hope Fletcher as Beth, Parson Nathaniel’s Wife, the 36-piece ULLAdubULLA Strings and the 9-piece Black Smoke Band.

The show, which is mixed live in Surround Sound, features remarkable special effects, including the incredible 3-tonne 35-foot tall Martian Fighting Machine firing real flames into the Arena, a 100 foot wide “animation wall” with 2 hours of cutting edge CGI, the incineration of a cast member in front of the audience’s eyes, a ground-breaking levitation effect and much, much more!
Jeff Wayne's double album has sold over 15 million records around the globe, spawned two International hit singles – 'Forever Autumn' and 'The Eve of The War', spending over 330 weeks in the UK album charts, and also won two prestigious UK Ivor Novello Awards, the US Best Recording in Science Fiction and Fantasy, and for Jeff, Classic Rock's 'Showman of The Year' Award.

Jeff Wayne said: “Bringing The War of The Worlds to life in many of the world’s finest arenas has been the most amazing experience, both musically and technologically. However, the time is right to take The War of The Worlds in new directions after the 2014 tour. All I can say for the future of TWOTW is – Watch this space!”
Westlife Star Brian McFadden is excited about being involved in the show. He commented:
“I’ve long been a fan of The War of The Worlds and am so excited to be involved in the tour. It’s a true honour to be involved in this electrifying show and to be joining such an exciting cast, including singing the thoughts of The Journalist, who is played by one of my Irish heroes, Liam Neeson. It’s also a thrill to be performing the two international Hit Singles “The Eve of The War” and “Forever Autumn”. I can’t wait for the tour to start – it’s going to be incredible!”
Jason Donovan said he was delighted to be reprising his role as Parson Nathaniel having played it last year. He said:
“The War of The Worlds is a classic. This production is on a scale like nothing I have ever done before – the effects are breath-taking both in front and behind the stage! It’s also one of the most enjoyable, most exciting and most memorable musical productions of all time. It’s a true honour to be returning for the third time, especially as this is the final Arena tour.”
Les Miserables star Carrie Hope Fletcher, who also has a significant YouTube following, and whose brother, Tom Fletcher, is McFly’s guitarist, said: “I’m delighted to have been cast as Beth, Parson Nathaniel’s wife: I genuinely can’t wait to get started. My family and I grew up listening to the album and now I’m going to be a part of it. My character levitates and disappears into thin air in full view of the audience, so that’s rather exciting too!”
