Jeff Wayne’s ‘The War of The Worlds’ returns to UK arenas in 2021

Posted Filed under

Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of ‘The War of The Worlds’ – Alive on Stage is back next year!

Based on HG Wells’ dark Victorian tale, the hit show returns to arenas across the UK in 2021, including two performances at Brighton Centre on 5th April.

Jeff Wayne commented: “For over four decades now I’ve lived out a dream of bringing the true story of HG Wells dark Victorian tale to listeners and audiences from around the world, while pushing technology to the limit both sonically and visually as time has moved on.

“In 2019 we launched The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience in Central London. combining, immersive theatre, virtual and, augmented realities, holograms and other cutting-edge technology; giving audiences the chance to live through the Martian invasion of 1898.

“Now our newest arena production combines these elements within the live performance medium, for an even more unique, emotional and at times, scary experience.”

The 2021 tour includes the return of Liam Neeson in 3D holography as George Herbert, the iconic 3-tonne, 35-foot tall Martian Fighting Machine firing real flame Heat Rays at the audience, the 9-piece Black Smoke Band and ULLAdubULLA symphonic string orchestra, now with the added incineration of a cast member in full view of the audience (seriously).
