Note from artist, Ian Berry: "Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of ‘The War of the Worlds’ – Alive on Stage is back in London. I've seen it twice already over the years and was brought up on it by my dad. For anyone who doesn't like the idea of a musical, this is something pretty special and everyone should enjoy - especially as my friend Newton Faulkner has been cast as the sung thoughts of The Journalist. Going back to the records store - a special release to mark the 40th Anniversary of the iconic masterpiece, ‘Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of The Worlds’, they have reissued the original 1978 double 12’’ vinyl album, and the artwork on this album and inside the booklet by Geoff Taylor is incredible."

The show will again feature a stellar cast with Jeff Wayne returning 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.

Star of stage and screen Jason Donovan returns to the role of Parson Nathaniel alongside West End actress Carrie Hope Fletcher as Beth, his wife. Actor and theatre star Adam Garcia will debut as The Artilleryman, British singer–songwriter Newton Faulkner will perform The Sung Thoughts of The Journalist, Inglorious front man Nathan James will play The Voice of Humanity, with Anna–Marie Wayne reprising her role as Carrie, The Journalist’s Fiancée.
