Liam Neeson in Jeff Wayne’s The War of the Worlds The New Generation

A new arena tour is kicking off at the end of 2012 of Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of the Worlds The New Generation.  There will also be a new updated recording of the show which will be released by Sony in June 2012.

Tickets go on sale at 09:00 on 23rd November for Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of the Worlds the New Generation.

The tour dates/venues I have so far are:  Liverpool Echo Arena/1st December, Wembley Arena/6th December, MEN Arena Manchester/8th December, O2 Arena London/15th December and the Brighton Centre 16th December 2012 plus Cardiff, Nottingham, Birmingham, Sheffield, Newcastle, Glasgow, Bournemouth - dates to follow.

In the last tour George Herbert the journalist was represented by Richard Burton in the form of an  11’ high holographic head hovering over the stage.

Liam Neeson will also appear on a hologram which he has already taken four days to shoot, but this time his whole body will also appear at stage level with the other actors.  The role has also been extended as Burton had 74 sequences  and Neeson has 90.

Some of other the artistes on the album and in the tour are cast but Wayne is waiting until all confirmed and will make a further announcement in the New Year.
