War Of The Worlds Live

Episode 1 of 1

In 1978, acclaimed musician Jeff Wayne composed and produced the best-selling concept album The Musical Version of the War of the Worlds. In 2006, this seminal work of progressive/literary rock was brought to the stage for the first time, playing to sold-out arenas across the United Kingdom. This program, recorded at London's Wembley Arena, is a spectacular mix of music, theatre, multimedia and visual arts on a grand scale, combining original performers, including Jeff Wayne, Justin Hayward, Chris Thompson and even the late Richard Burton, with a new cast, full orchestra and an unforgettable fully operational 30-foot Martian fighting machine!
