‘Superstar’ arena tour hitting US

– The 1970s rock opera “Jesus Christ Superstar” is being resurrected for a North American arena rock tour this summer, led by a former boy band member, an R&B siren and a punk icon.

The musical written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice about the last days of Jesus will start a 54-city tour June 9 in New Orleans.

It will star punk legend John “Johnny Rotten” Lydon as King Herod, Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child as Mary Magdalene, Brandon Boyd of Incubus as Judas and JC Chasez of ’N Sync as Pontius Pilate. Ben Forster, the winner of the U.K.’s prime-time contest show “Superstar,” will play the son of God.

“I’m looking forward to the experience,” said Chasez. “This is honestly my first theater experience so I’m being thrown into the fire a bit. But I’m excited because the fact that we’re doing something that feels pretty unique.”

The tour will start at Lakefront Arena in New Orleans and include stops in Indianapolis, Detroit, Los Angeles, Chicago, St. Louis, Phoenix, Seattle, Las Vegas, Denver, New York City, and Boston

The tour ends in Philadelphia on Aug. 16.
