Marti Pellow cancels stage shows in Germany
Former Wet Wet Wet frontman Marti Pellow has axed two performances of a stage show based on Jeff Wayne's Musical Version Of The War Of The Worlds. The Scottish singer, who has become a theatre star in recent years, plays The Journalist in the arena show created from the composer's updated rock album retelling of H. G. Wells' novel The War of the Worlds. The record's release has been postponed in Germany, so bosses behind the tour decided to scrap two of the planned stage shows in Hamburg and Munich. A statement posted on Pellow's page reads, "Due to the postponement of The War Of The Worlds album in Germany, the shows in Hamburg and Munich have been cancelled. The other three shows will still go ahead - 4th January Oberhausen Arena, 5th January O2 World Berlin, 7th January Nuremberg Arena."
