Having hit big in the UK with stars such as Mel C, Tim Minchin and Chris Moyles, the updated version of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ will now take to the US for a 50 date tour.

It’s all star cast will contain former Sex Pistol John Lydon as King Herod, Brandon Boyd (Incubus) as Judas, Michelle Williams (Destiny’s Child) as Mary Magdalene and JC Chasez (‘N Sync) as Pontius Pilate.

Ben Forster, winner of ITV’s (relatively) recent ‘Superstar’ programme, will reprise his role as Jesus Christ from the UK iteration.
