Marti Pellow Joining Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds Tour

Wet, Wet,Wet singer and front man  Marti Pellow is playing the Narrator in the Tour of Willy Russell's Blood Brothers until 24th November and he then will be joining the cast of Jeff Wayne’s new Musical Version of The War of The Worlds: The New Generation - Alive on Stage which kicks off at Dublin 02 Arena on 29th November.

He will be  playing The Voice of Humanity alongside Jason Donovan as Parson Nathaniel,  Kerry Ellis as his wife Beth and  Kaiser Chiefs’ Ricky Wilson as the The Artilleryman.

Marti said: “I am so looking forward to working on Jeff Wayne's classic, The War of The Worlds. I think Jeff's idea of the New Generation is wonderful, it says to me The War of The Worlds is still about that original amazing piece - but it's also about turning new people on to Jeff's vision, it delivers so much more to the original fans and will massively inspire new ones.As a songwriter I get it big time - but as a punter too, watching this show, it will simply blow you away! Jeff's team have put together a production that is second to none - embracing today's technology but never losing sight of the star of the show and the songs - that's why it was a big "yes" from me”
Hollywood star Liam Neeson will appear in the holographic role of The Journalist, taking over from Richard Burton.
