War Of The Worlds

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!

Jeff Wayne said:
“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 we are today, celebrating its 40th Anniversary and seeing the newly re-mastered original double album sitting on top of the UK vinyl album charts.

And later this year I believe we’ll be performing the most exciting arena tour to date, with a most exciting cast, all of us getting ready to do battle with the Martians later this year. No one would have believed…”
