MARTI PELLOW JOINS ALL STAR CAST

IN THE ROLE OF THE VOICE OF HUMANITY

Award winning singer, songwriter, actor and performer, Marti Pellow, will join the cast of Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of The Worlds - Alive on Stage! for The New Generation Tour.

Marti first came to the attention of the British public as the lead singer of one of the most successful and acclaimed chart topping bands in British pop history - Wet Wet Wet . He has gone on to star in the West End and Broadway as well as touring productions that include Chicago, The Witches of Eastwick, Jekyll & Hyde and Blood Brothers.

A man of diverse talent who always excels in whatever he turns his hand to., Marti is thrilled to be a part of Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of The Worlds – Alive on Stage! The New Generation as The Voice of Humanity.

Marti says,

‘I am so looking forward to working on Jeff Wayne's classic, The War of The Worlds. I think Jeff's idea of the New Generation is wonderful....it says to me The War of The Worlds is still about that original amazing piece - but it's also about turning new people on to his vision, it delivers so much more to the original fans and will massively inspire new ones. And as a songwriter I get it big time - but as a punter too, watching this show, it will simply blow you away! Jeff's team have put together a production that is second to none - embracing today's technology but never losing sight of the star of the show, the songs and that's why it was a big "yes" from me. Finally with these new guest stars onboard - this is a must have ticket - bring it on - I can't wait!


In addition to Marti Pellow The New Generation production is shaping up to have its most stellar cast to date. Heading it up is acclaimed actor Liam Neeson who will appear in in 3D holography asGeorge Herbert,The Journalist, taking over from Richard Burton’s iconic narration.


The groundbreaking 3D holography will include Liam ‘on stage’ in full body, interaticng with live cast members, including ‘how did they do that’ moments where he passes objects between hologram and reality!

Also announced is Jason Donovan who will play Parson Nathaniel, with West End star Kerry Ellis portraying his wife, Beth, and Kaiser Chiefs’ Ricky Wilson as The Artilleryman. A final guest artist is still to be announced.

Jeff Wayne says,

“Over the years, I’ve been privileged to have had the participation of some truly great artists. For me, the real bonus is that I’ve always been a true fan of those who have come on board; to me it’s not been ‘work’, just great fun.

As our Journalist I’m thrilled to have attracted Liam Neeson to my New Generation productions. He has, so-to-speak, been handed the ‘baton’ from Richard Burton, and I believe audiences and listeners alike will find Liam’s interpretation no less compelling.

For this next arena tour with Ricky Wilson, Jason Donovan, Kerry Ellis and Marti Pellow they each have a magic that draws audiences to them and I welcome them all to The War of The Worlds.
