Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of War of the Worlds - Manchester Evening News Arena




Here are some Pictures from Manchester Evening News Arena two days ago. The show that ended with the fighting machine listing in a some what not indented manor. The out out from Manchester wen really well. We were finding our Paul Mathiews trailer quite difficult to pack properly with out the use of load bars. Thankfully now we've got a proper rock and roll trailer and the process is much easier and takes half the time.

Right now you find me half way though Act 1 at Cardiff International Arena, after a nice restful day off we tipped the PA truck at 9am and the whole day has been much more pleasant because of it. Baring in mind we only tipped at 11 in Manchester and the whole day we we were right up against it. So today everything went really well. The show however has been another story, already we've had the bar beat counter stop on me, one of the backing keyboard tracks go one sided. Who says live entertainment isn't live or exciting?

Just passing on my thanks for a great night to all the crew for Tuesday in Cardiff.
Out of interest how much of the keyboard parts are played live and how much are automated?

Thanks I'm glad you enjoyed the show. The vast majority of the keyboard parts are live, from the Muse Research Receptors and a Akai S3200 for the sound effects. There is only one stereo part that is from track and it is only used in a few parts of the show.
