The first ever UK arena tour of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s legendary rock classic Jesus Christ Superstar.
Award-winning musical comedian Tim Minchin – also the co-writer of West End smash musical Matilda – is confirmed for the role of Judas Iscariot. Three million album selling pop icon and former Spice Girl Melanie C will take the only female lead as Mary Magdalene, and BBC Radio 1′s Breakfast Show host Chris Moyles will make his major stage debut as King Herod, in what is set to be one of the biggest and most impressive arena tours to hit the UK.
The ITV primetime show Superstar will give the UK public the chance to decide who will play the starring role of Jesus, with a panel of live show judges led by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Celebrating 40 years since it first opened in London’s West End, the Jesus Christ Superstar arena tour kicks off this September.
Tickets will be posted out one week before the event.
