McFadden set for War of Worlds musical

The former Westlife member will join Australian singer/actor Jason Donovan in Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds, which is returning for a sixth and final trek of the UK and the Republic of Ireland in 2014.

He will perform The Sung Thoughts of The Journalist, a character played by Ballymena manLiam Neeson, who will appear as a 3D holograph as featured in previous runs of the hit show.

The singer says: "I've long been a fan of The War of The Worlds and am so excited to be involved in the tour.

"It's a true honour to be involved in this electrifying show and to be joining such an exciting cast, including singing the thoughts of The Journalist, who is played by one of my all-time Irish heroes, Liam Neeson ...

"This will be a totally new experience for me which is both terrifying and exhilarating!"

Jason Donovan will reprise his role as disturbed religious man Parson Nathaniel, while Les Miserables actress/singer Carrie Hope Fletcher has also signed up for the production, which is based on Jeff Wayne's 1978 concept album.

The new tour will kick off in Dublin next November.
