MCFadden will perform The Sung Thoughts of The Journalist, a character played by Liam 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!"
