About this deal

A positive review was published by Ben Ostrander in the science-fiction magazine The Space Gamer, who thought the album was "magnificent" and despite some differences between the record and the original novel, it "is a kind of rock/radio play with modern interpretations" and is "better than most crap on TV, and makes for a fun evening around the stereo. Burton had already committed to start work on Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977) in Los Angeles after the Equus run, so Wayne organised to record the narration there to avoid further delays. In 2006, fans of the album were finally able to see the music bought to life in a grandiose arena spectacular.

Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds, The Final Arena Tour at The LG Arena, Birmingham, UK". With its unique orchestration combing prog rock (rock that is heavily influenced by classical music) and disco elements, the album was an huge success. Believe me, if like me, you grew up and spent many a hazy evening with your personal headphones and cassette of WOTW,( ha ha, showing my age ! The new song for the 40th Anniversary tour, which was first seen in the 2016 West End production, was a reprise of "Forever Autumn".It ran from 8 February to 30 April 2016 [31] and featured direction by Bob Thompson, an onstage orchestra conducted by Jeff Wayne, and Liam Neeson as the Journalist in the usual 3D holography. Wayne had to convince the guest artists that they were the right performers for their role, and got them keen to carry out their parts.

Epilogue (Part 2)" was influenced by the Viking program, which saw two space probes land on Mars in 1976. This captivating and must-own spectacular is accompanied by exclusive behind the scenes interviews with Liam Neeson, Marti Pellow and Jeff Wayne on DVD and additional interviews with the rest of the cast including Jason Donovan and Ricky Wilson. This release was dedicated to Falzon, who died on 23 June 2020 from germ cell cancer, and included link to a donation page for the Chris O'Brien Lifehouse where he was treated. In March 2020, Jeff Wayne announced a new tour of The War of the Worlds for 2021 with new technological advances being added to the production.This single CD release was largely made of tracks from the original remix album, with some additional new remixes by Tom Middleton and DJ Keltech, and hip-hop versions of two tracks by DJ Zube. On 18 November 2011, Jeff Wayne announced at a press conference in London that there was to be a new release of his musical version of H.

Initially Wayne had Carlos Santana record guitar riffs and hooks to interpret the Martian's heat-ray, but his involvement ended after one day when Santana's manager spotted an issue in the contract and certain requests could not be met.Nathaniel resolves to confront the 'demons', believing that he has been chosen to destroy them with his prayers and holy cross.
