“I'm here to sing with the King of the Jews – who could ask for anything more?” said John Lydon, once known as the Sex Pistols’ combustible Johnny Rotten, at an announcement of a bizarre arena tour of “Jesus Christ Superstar” due to hit the BB&T Center this summer.
Indeed, I don’t remember anyone asking for it, but this new version of the rock opera about the last days of Jesus (music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Tim Rice) has the potential to be oddly entertaining, thanks to a potpourri of pop stars you’d never think to put on the same stage.
Among the 50 cast members and musicians gathering on June 13 in Sunrise will be Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child as Mary Magdalene, Brandon Boyd of the rock band Incubus as Judas Iscariot, 'N Sync's JC Chasez as Pontius Pilate and Lydon (currently of the resuscitated Public Image Ltd.) as King Herod.
British reality-TV celebrity Ben Forster will reprise the role of Jesus, which he has played in British and Australian dates on the tour.
Tickets for “Jesus Christ Superstar” at the BB&T Center go on sale 10 a.m. Friday at JesusChristSuperstar.com. Price range is $44.50-$224.50.
