This summer, feel all the power and the glory of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Jesus Christ Superstar in the most awe-inspiring North American arena tour ever staged, experiencing the rock music phenomenon that has entertained audiences worldwide for 40 years.

Brandon Boyd, Grammy®-nominated lead vocalist of rock band Incubus, is confirmed for the role of Judas Iscariot, Grammy®-nominated singer and former *NSYNC member, JC Chasez will play Pontius Pilate, Grammy® Award-winner and former member of Destiny’s Child, Michelle Williams, will take the female lead as Mary Magdalene, English frontman of Public Image Ltd (PiL) and Sex Pistols member, John (Rotten) Lydon will play King Herod, and introducing British actor and singer, Ben Forster, who won the UK’s ITV Superstar competition in 2012, and played the lead role in the UK and Australian arena tours of Jesus Christ Superstar, who will reprise his role as Jesus.

This North American tour of more than 50 cities will kick off in New Orleans’ Lakefront Arena on June 9, to then spread the word to Toronto, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City and many more venues, before bringing the house down at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Arena on August 17.

I was baffled by this, and I'm even more so now that I see it's doing an arena that holds like 20-30,000 people

Lmfao this would be sort of surreal to see

I mean, all in all it's a pretty good musical when you get down to it. It's a random cast, but it may be okay. :eyes:

They were fucking expensive!

Funny because I walk through the Air Canada Center in Toronto every day and it was only this past week they put up a huge 10x20 poster advertising the show. And it's even funnier because I can't stand Johnny Rotten.
