In 1978 Jeff Wayne composed and produced one of the most groundbreaking and best-selling musical works of all time.

The War of The Worlds Live is a spectacular mix of live music, theatre, multi-media and visual arts on a grand scale. Written by
Thirty years the music was considered to be revolutionary, changed the face of music in a BIG way! Why did Jeff Wayne chose to do War of the Worlds? because he was taught by his father to compose what Jeff would love and adapt to, Jeff of course loved war of the worlds.
I read the book it was interesting I played the game, it was great I watched the 1953 movie, it was the most awful adaption I've ever seen.
I have seen the 2005 movie, I wanted to love it but it kinda flopped on me.
But the Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds musical version, OK pararell to the book in some parts but the result was still the same.
THE WAR OF THE WORLDS HAS BEEN BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE!!! I admire how the music was structured, the violins at the beginning, the incredible vocals, amazing actors/singers and of course it was impressive how they brought Richard Burton back to life. Practically, they have reunited the old with the new to recreate the power of The War of the Worlds by Jeff Wayne.
Thirty years, Jeff, I admire your valiant efforts and unmeasurable patience. You are and still a legend in those who keep attempting to bring back war of the worlds, Well Done!
