We know flights and hotels were booked. We feel for everyone from the fans to the cast and crew who were a joy to work with. If we knew more we would tell you…

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."

We are looking for never before seen photographs as well as film and video footage of PiL and John Lydon from any time period. If you have ANYTHING that you think may be of interest please drop us a note. You will be credited in the end titles if we use your footage. 

Do you have a snapshot at The Rainbow on Christmas 1978?

Do you have a photo souvenir of the infamous Ritz riot show? Do you have a picture with or without John showing your injuries after being hit by a flying object!

Did you shoot video of John signing your PiL records at the Monsters of Alternative Rock Tour in 1989?

We know PiL fans are most creative people. Your ongoing support is greatly appreciated. We salute you lollypop mob.
