John Lydon cast as King Herod. :noclue:

In the comments section on FB someone posted about casting Peter Murphy as Pontius Pilate. :lol:

Too bad Perry wasn't cast in this.


John Lydon will tour North American arenas this summer, but not with Public Image Ltd. or the Sex Pistols — no, the erstwhile Johnny Rotten will play King Herod in a new touring production of the Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice classic “Jesus Christ Superstar” that also will feature members of Incubus, *NSYNC and Destiny’s Child.

The production, announced Friday, will hit 54 cities between June 9 and Aug. 17 (see full dates), and will find Lydon joined by Incubus’ Brandon Boyd (Judas Iscariot), *NSYNC’s JC Chasez (Pontius Pilate) and Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child (Mary Magdalene). British actor and singer Ben Forster will play Jesus.

Lydon, in a news release, says of the role:

“I’m here to sing with the King of the Jews, who could ask for anything more?”

Below, check out a preview video.


Tickets range from $45.00 to $225.00 with a limited number of Gold Circle seats and VIP Experience packages available. Additional ticket fees may apply.
