Hi, quick query:

At my school, I was thinking of asking to do a performance of the war of the worlds, but then I thought of all the dribble of copyright, and just thought I would ask if we could perform it?

We might not be doing it at all yet (which is highly likely, I might add), and if we can't that's fine! It would be nice to do though.

Talk to your teachers about it, and if they do decide to investigate further, get in touch with the team over at Jeff Wayne Music. It's quite an expensive show to produce, and there are a lot of conditions that must be met, but it'd be incredibly rewarding if you can pull it off!

My God, you make me feel awful for asking now! 'An expensive show to produce' and 'conditions to be met!' Heavens, I feel so helpless!

Only joking! I know the copyright issues are serious ones, and I accept that, and we won't lift a finger to perform it unless you guys are happy to give us the get-go. If you're happy with it, I'm happy with it. I'll see what my teach has got to say in next music lesson!

Keep posted!

Ta muchly,

OK, thanks, I have sent the all-important e-mail now, and am awaiting a reply.
Thanks for the help so far, I will speak with my music teacher about it on Monday, and confirm it with her, and we will see where it will go from there.

I perform TWoTW's live every night in my shower, also next door probably hears it. My God I hope I'm not breaking any copyright laws. I'll be forwarding an email to Jeff next time I take a shower just to be on the safe side.

Good luck- I hope your school pulls it off!

I think its  brilliant that schools are playing TWOTW music and keeping the flame alive through future generations.

It is fantastic for pupils as it truly gives the school kids a chance to really explore the avenues of the music and express your feelings too,

I say 'Go for it' ... it is so worthwhile.

It will be a show you will always rememebr and look back upon in future years!

All hugs xxox

Thanks for the support, and AMEN LOXLEY! I think it's great that people agree with me! Twotw is so great, but whenever I speak about it, people moan, so I hope we CAN pull it off, so people can appreciate what is my entire childhood!

(As in the first post, we are still only thinking about it! We may not get the chance to pull it off!)

By the way, I sent the e-mail on Sunday, and was wondering how long I will need to wait for a reply?

Hi there,

I would imagine with all the publicity going on for the promotion of the tour, I'd give it a couple of weeks....if not hear by then, then I'd write again and ask them if there was sme sort of answer forthcoming?

They are usually very good, but it is ahugley busy time right now.

all hugs,Loxley xx
