Brandon Boyd from Incubus and Johnny Rotten join Jesus Christ Superstar cast

by Otto Man

"Jesus Christ Superstar" is being resurrected for a North American arena tour this summer. The performance is being headlined by Johnny Rotten from the Sex Pistols as King Herod, Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child as Mary Magdalene, Brandon Boyd of Incubus as Judas and JC Chasez of 'N Sync as Pontius Pilate. Winner of the U.K. talent contest, "Superstar" Ben Forster will play Jesus. The musical was written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice and follows the last days of Jesus. It starts a 54-city tour on June 9th. At a press conference last Friday, Williams, Forster and Boyd sang a few songs and Rotten threw out bananas to the media.
