Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of The Worlds – Alive on Stage returns to UK arenas next year to celebrate its 40th ANNIVERSARY, at the Newcastle Metro

Radio Arena on Saturday 1st December 2018.

Conducted by Jeff Wayne, with the 9-piece Black Smoke Band and 36-piece ULLAdubULLA Strings, the most ambitious production yet will ‘break through the fourth wall’ to bring the action closer to the audience for a most captivating and immersive experience.

The show, which is mixed live in Surround Sound, will also feature Liam Neeson in 3D holography, the incredible 3-tonne 35-foot tall Martian Fighting Machine firing real flames, the incineration of a cast member in full view of the audience, and a ground-breaking levitation effect! Full cast to be announced soon!

Nearly 40 years on, Jeff Wayne's double album has grown into a true classic, and has sold over 15 million records worldwide, with two International hit singles – 'Forever Autumn' and 'The Eve of The War', spending over 330 weeks in the UK album charts. It has 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.

DON’T MISS your chance to experience this spectacular Arena production and join the 40 YEAR celebrations!

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 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…
