John Lydon w/ PiL at Hammerstein in 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
John Lydon

Jesus Christ Superstar, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's famous rock opera that's been around for over four decades, is returning to the road for a 50+ tour of the US and Canada in June, July and August. The tour will feature Incubus singer Brandon Boyd (as Judas Iscariot), "NSYNC's JC Chasez (as Pontius Pilate), Destiny's Child's Michelle Williams (as Mary Magdalene), and -- wait for it... Sex Pistols/Public Image Ltd. singer John "Rotten" Lydon as King Herod. It also features Britain's Ben Forster as Jesus (who has already played the role in the UK and Australian tours).

The tour comes to NYC on August 5 at Madison Square Garden. Tickets for all dates go on sale Friday, April 11. All dates are listed below...
