Arena Tour Of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR Airs On Channel 5 Tonight
The reimagined arena tour of Jesus Christ Superstar airs tonight on Channel 5 tonight at 11.35pm.
Filmed as an arena rock opera, the production boasts a star-studded line-up which includes award-winning musical comedian Tim Minchin in the role of Judas Iscariot; pop icon and former Spice Girl Melanie C as Mary Magdalene; DJ Chris Moyles in his stage debut as King Herod; and Ben Forster, winner of primetime TV talent search Superstar, taking on the title role of Jesus.
The inaugural run in September 2012 was seen by over 150,000 people, breaking previous audience records, with 74,000 fans seeing the show on its opening weekend. After a tour in Australia, it returned to the UK in 2013.
