Where are Torchwood when you need them? (Probably at a John Barrowman concert.)
The touring version of Jeff Wayne's album The War Of The Worlds, complete with enormous Martian tripod, returns to British stages in June 2009 and they have just added concerts in Cardiff's CIA and London's O2 to their schedule. The tour will take in venues from Aberdeen to Bournemouth.
Based on the 1978 double album, the concert is a live performance of the story and music complete with CGI effects projected onto wide screen behind the orchestra plus an enormous talking head "hologram" representing the album's narrator, the late Richard Burton. For anyone who enjoyed the album over the last thirty years, the concert is both an impressive live recreation of it as well as providing a CGI prequel set on Mars itself.
More details of the tour are on the War of the Worlds website.
