Jeff Wayne said: "For over four decades now I’ve lived out a dream of bringing the true story of HG Wells dark Victorian tale to listeners and audiences from around the world, while pushing technology to the limit both sonically and visually as time has moved on. In 2019 we launched The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience in Central London, combining, immersive theatre, virtual and, augmented realities, holograms and other cuttingedge technology; giving audiences the chance to live through the Martian invasion of 1898. Now our newest arena production combines these elements within the live performance medium, for an even more unique, emotional and at times, scary experience.”
