The War of The Worlds website in conjunction with Universal have launched a Microsite for the DVD in effort to promote it. This mini site is specifically designed to celebrate the new release and is dedicated to all news and updates surrounding the release, including a link to purchase the product. Fans will enjoy looking at a spectacular slideshow of images from Tour 2006 and other interesting content. To access the Microsite from the Homepage, simply click on the area indicated. The Microsite will then open in a new window.

For our more dedicated fans we will shortly be launching the ULLA! Club. Members of the club will have access to exclusive content including:

The chat room will open at 10:00 p.m. GMT and will close at 11:30p.m. The main topic of the chat will be the release of the DVD and the Live Tour. We encourage all site members to post questions to the site in advance of the chat. This will help us gauge the volume of questions and eliminate duplication at the same time. Further details on the chat will be announced soon on the website.
