news We are proud to confirm John Lydon will be playing King Herod in the North American arena tour of Jesus Christ Superstar this summer.

"I’m here to sing with the King of the Jews, who could ask for anything more?" - John Lydon

The 54-city tour will kick off in New Orleans’ Lakefront Arena on June 9th - taking in the likes of Toronto, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, New York City and many more cities - before closing at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Arena on August 17th. See the official Jesus Christ Superstar website for full dates...

John will be joined by Brandon Boyd of Incubus (Judas Iscariot), JC Chasez from NSYNC (Pontius Pilate) and Michelle Williams from Destiny’s Child (Mary Magdalene); along with British actor and singer Ben Forster (Jesus Christ) in Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s new arena rock production of the long established stage show.

Set in the present day and updated for a 21st-century audience, Jesus Christ Superstar is a live two-hour rock concert with over 50 cast and musicians performing a dramatization of the last seven days in the life of Jesus of Nazareth. Told from the point of view of Jesus’s friend Judas Iscariot, the original story from The Bible is reflected through our modern society to bring the Gospels to life using contemporary costumes plus arena-scale lighting and video effects that demonstrate the eternal power of this timeless story.

Tickets for the first 22 shows, New Orleans through Edmonton, will be on sale beginning Friday, April 11 via the Jesus Christ Superstar website. Also see the JCS Twitter and Facebook pages to hear about exclusive pre-sale opportunities.

We are pleased to confirm that John Lydon is working on a new autobiography. The - as yet untitled book - is scheduled for a hardback release via publishers Simon & Schuster in October 2014. John will be writing the book with British music journalist Andrew Perry.

John Lydon: "This book is basically about the life of a serious risk-taker. I make things safe for other people to follow on in my wake. I’m a stand-up-and-be-counted fella – but that’s in a world where nobody seems to be able to count."
