Very cool! War Of The World's was probably my first musical album and started my love for rock too (the solo in Thunderchild is one of my favourites). It's a shame I missed that show reallySaw Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of the War of the Worlds live in Birmingham tonight. I have been a fan of the album since I was about 8 or 9, it was the album that got me into "rock music" really, and remains my favourite album of all time, and own multiple versions of it - 4 variations on vinyl (2 original, the highlights, and The New Generation), the original on CD, the remix CD, and two live DVDs. I managed, somehow to miss every arena tour Jeff did of the production since 2006, and I remember being distraught when I missed the then titled "final arena tour" in 2014. However, I did catch the West End transfer in 2016, which was a great experience but I felt it lacked the major theatrics that the arena shows provided. So when this 40th anniversary tour was announced, I knew it was my chance finally to see it in arena setting. Oh boy, the show was amazing. The music, the production, the performers (even Jason Donavon). It was everything I had hoped and more. What surprised me the most also, was how packed the venue was, for a sci fi prog rock album about an alien invasion, selling out arenas 40 years later isn't bad going, which gives me hope for more tours in the future.
