Will Stapleton, front man of the fast-rising British rock band Jettblack will join the cast of Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of ‘The War of The Worlds - Alive on Stage!’ for The New Generation tour.

Fresh off the back of a headline tour with Jettblack, Will is looking forward to hitting the stage alongside a new and exciting cast performing the role of The Voice of Humanity.
Will says, “It’s an honour to even be considered for a role like this let alone getting the part. I can’t wait to put my own stamp on the role of The Voice of Humanity whose track ‘Thunder Child’ is the climatic song that ends Act 1.  I’m raring to get on stage”
Will joins an all-star cast including Marti Pellow as The Sung Thoughts of The Journalist, Jason Donovan playing Parson Nathaniel, and Kerry Ellis as his wife, Beth. Also confirmed is Kaiser Chiefs’ Ricky Wilson in the role of The Artilleryman.
You can buy tickets here:
Internationally acclaimed actor Liam Neeson completes the cast and will be seen in the new production in 3D holography portraying the role of George Herbert, The Journalist, taking over from Richard Burton’s iconic narration on the original album, and previous tours.  The groundbreaking, full body, live action 3D hologram is an extraordinary performance from Liam, who interacts with the live performers, including passing objects between hologram and reality!
Jeff Wayne says,“Over the years, I’ve been privileged to have had the participation of some truly great artists. For me, the real bonus is that I’ve always been a true fan of those who have come on board; to me it’s not been ‘work’, just great fun.
As our Journalist I’m thrilled to have attracted Liam Neeson to my New Generation productions. He has, so-to-speak, been handed the ‘baton’ from Richard Burton, and I believe audiences and listeners alike will find Liam’s interpretation no less compelling.
For this next arena tour with Ricky Wilson, Jason Donovan, Kerry Ellis, Marti Pellow and Will Stapleton, they each have a magic that draws audiences to them and I welcome them all to ‘The War of The Worlds’.
