Jesus Christ Superstar Returns to London
And so the wait is over and last night we discovered who was going to joing Mel C, Tim Minchin and Chris Moyles on the arena stages for the UK tour of Jesus Christ Superstar.
UPDATE: Jesus Christ Superstar Theatre Breaks are no longer available
Congratulations to Ben Forster who beat thousands to win the marathon casting auditions held on ITV in front of millions over the last two weeks. He beat Roger and Rory in the final and will now go on to play the role of Jesus Christ at the O2 on 22 and 23 September 2012.

WEMBLEY ARENA UPDATE: We now have Theatre Breaks including best seats for the return of Jesus Christ Superstar to London when it plays Wmbley Arena on 17 October 2012 Book Now
The huge stadium tour being planned by Lord Lloyd Webber comes as the icing on the cake to a musical year like no other, as production announcements including The Bodyguard, Viva Forever and Cabaret have already made 2012 the Year of the Musical.
Between the four of them we are set to enjoy a purple patch of musical entertainment – and that is on top of the smash hit shows that are already in town.
But back to the point. Following on from the success of TV casting shows such as “You’re The One That I want,” “How do you solve a problem like Maria?” and more recently “Over the Rainbow,” Lord Lloyd Webber’s new reality TV show was just as exciting as we watched him search for his “Superstar”.
We are over-joyed to still have availablility for our Jesus Christ Superstar and Hotel theatre breaks – just on the news alone that comedian and Matilda the Musical writer, Tim Minchin, will star as Judas set ticket touts a gagging. Then Sporty Spice, Mel C, was set up as Mary Magdeline and the icing on the cake was the surprise casting of Radio One DJ Chris Moyles as King Herod!
We know he can sing a bit because he came third on Celebrity X Factor and of course as breakfast DJ he holds the ear of the nations youth (and a few of us 40 year olds) but he famously hates musicals!
The show will premiere at London’s O2 Arena before embarking on its UK tour calling at arenas in Glasgow, Newcastle, Belfast, Dublin, Manchester, Nottingham, Liverpool, Sheffield and Birmingham – so it will be kill or cure for Moyles.
London Theatre Breaks for Jesus Christ Superstar include second price lower tier tickets at The O2 plus overnight accommodation in the stylish Cavendish London hotel.
