Jesus Christ Superstar
Following the sensational Manchester opening night, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's legendary rock classic Jesus Christ Superstar returns to the Manchester Arena on Sunday 7 October. Tickets, priced from £45.00 - £65.00, are on sale now.
Doors are due to open at 6.00pm and the show will start at 8.00pm prompt, ending at approximately 10.10pm.
ITV's 'Superstar' winner Ben Forster will be joined on stage in Manchester by award-winning musical comedian Tim Minchin as Judas Iscariot, three million album selling pop icon and former Spice Girl Melanie C as Mary Magdalene and BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show host Chris Moyles as King Herod in what is set to be one of the biggest and most impressive arena tours to hit the UK.
Speaking ahead of the second Manchester show, Andrew
Lloyd Webber said: "Jesus Christ Superstar began life
as an album followed by a sell-out arena tour of the US. Our
very first show was at the Civic Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania,
where we played to over 13,000 people. Tim and I have always
wanted to take Superstar back to its roots and we are both
delighted that it will finally play an arena tour in the UK in
venues where many of the world's great rock acts have gone
before. We're thrilled to have such great talent in the
cast for the new show - they are all true ambassadors of UK
entertainment. The re-mastered album sounds fantastic and we hope
that fans both old and new will enjoy it."
Tim Minchin added: "As a huge fan of Jesus Christ Superstar, I've always thought it needed three key things: a big cast and band; loads of volume; and me playing Judas. I've been in two small productions of the show, and understudied the big man both times. I am really bloody excited about this."
Jesus Christ Superstar is a worldwide phenomenon, portraying the story of the last seven days of Christ leading up to his crucifixion, and featuring hit songs such as Superstar, I Don't Know How To Love Him, Heaven On Their Minds and Hosanna.
