I do love this, it's a fantastic audio compilation. I haven't been lucky enough to see it in theatre or anything, but just sat down working away with this playing is good enough for now ^^

Got the original version on LP. Getting a bit scratchy now but definately the best version also had the book but that got loaned out and never returned.

I know it was the "final arena tour" but they may do it again sometime and this should be on your bucket list.
I hadn't researched the show before I saw it so I had no pre conceived idea what to expect.
I have to say it was brilliant, I was not disappointed in any way. Its a fusion of cinema, live actors and the band and orchestra, all being conducted by Jeff himself.
Oh and the Martian fighting machine trying to kill the audience, absolutely brilliant.
