I Bet Old H.G Never Envisaged This..
Jeff Wayne's musical version of the Wells sci-fi classic War of the Worlds has always been a favourite record of mine, ever since I heard it way back in 1978. I must have listened to it hundreds of times by now and often sing along to it in my own special style. Meaning I can't sing!
Gail & I saw this spectacle a couple of years ago and it was great. I'm in two minds whether to book tickets to see it again, as they are rather expensive. It's on at the Ice Arena, whose acoustics for music are quite bad. It is only a skating rink after all, even though many top acts have performed there. But it is too echoy for my liking.
I had to take a photo of this giant advertising poster though as a memento of a great album.
