Are all the new generation stars going to be live on stage (with the exception of liam)?

Am I really going to be in the front row with gary barlow, maverick sabre, joss stone, alex clare and ricky wilson only a few feet away???

All the news today has made me wish it was December already, what a fantastic line up, I think the new cast will be brilliant and I cant wait to hear it all.

Ricky wilson is doing the tour and cd
Joss stone, maverick saber, Alex Clare are defiantly not there as their parts have been cast. The people will be Kerry Ellis, Jason Donovan, Marti Pellow instead. I have a feeling judging by a tweet from gray Barlow that he is only on the cd but that is to be confirmed by the admins.

the tweet: "I'm honoured to be a guest on The War of the Worlds record.I've always loved this album and I'm the biggest fan of its creator Jeff Wayne"

Well I was Hoping for more of the cast from the recording to be in the live show.

It seems to make the new recording a waste of time, Jeff could just have put more work into creating a bigger and better live show which could tour the world while introducing the new voices/dialogue/score as it went on.

I feel slightly cheated as I'm not going to see the new generation cast live.

If Gary does appear live then it will at least be living up to the first generation with nearly half the original voices present on stage from the recording.

I know the new generation has been done to raise the money to keep the live show alive but more thought should have been put into linking the two projects.

enough rant..... still looking forward to hearing the new recording,

and cant wait to see the new show

peace

What it looks like from here is:


The Journalist
Liam Neeson

The Sung Thoughts of The Journalist
A:Gary Barlow
L: TBA

Parson Nathaniel
A:Maverick Sabre
L:Jason Donovan

Beth, Parson Nathaniel's Wife
A:Joss Stone
L: Kerry Ellis

The Artilleryman
A:Ricky Wilson
L:Ricky Wilson

The Voice of Humanity
A:Alex Clare
L:Marti Pellow




I guess that the live show and the album have slightly different requirements and Mr Wayne has gone for what he feels is best for each

I wonder why Marti Pellow has switched roles?!

I've never heard of Jettblack before, I'll have to look them up.

Looks like they have been going a few years...there's a few of their videos on youtube.....Will Stapleton has a look of a young Ronnie James Dio...
