One of the most ground-breaking arena tours of all time, Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of 'The War of the Worlds' - Alive on Stage is to make its return to the UK next year, stopping at The O2 on Saturday 15 December 2018.
Nearly 40 years on, based on HG Wells' dark Victorian tale, Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of The Worlds remains a firm favourite to millions around the world. Commanding the stage, Jeff Wayne returns to the podium to conduct the 9-piece Black Smoke Band and 36-piece ULLAdubULLA strings, while Liam Neeson retains his role in 3D holography as The Journalist, with an exciting full cast to be announced soon.
