Jeff Wayne talks to Ed Wellman

Click here to listen again to the interview

Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds, released in 1977, was one of the classic albums of the 1970s. Based on HG Wells' famous book, it spent nearly 6 years in the UK album charts and reached number 1 in 11 countries.

Now back thanks to phenomenal demand, Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of The Worlds - Alive on Stage! is set to return to major arenas around the UK and Europe in 2010/2011. Following the hugely successful and critically acclaimed sell-out arena tours in 2006, 2007 and 2009, Jeff will star in the highly anticipated new production which will be invading the UK and Europe from November 2010, along with stars such as Jason Donovan, Atomic Kitten's Liz McClarnon, X-Factor's Rhydian, and Moody Blues' Justin Hayward, who sang "Forever Autumn" on the original soundtrack.
