"Jesus Christ Superstar" Tour Had "Horrific"...

Posted by - 02:13 PM on 06/07/14
The Jesus Christ Superstar tour failed due to "horrific" ticket sales.
Conceived as a 54-city arena tour, the show boasted a cast of Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd, John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten) of the Sex Pistols, íN Syncís JC Chasez and Destinyís Child singer Michelle Williams. Despite the enduring popularity of the music and a well-executed April announcement featuring the cast and producers, the production never caught on with the public.

aw. I would've gone if I hadn't had to work when it was here. I'm a dweeb and I was excited for JC.

They could have done the show in residency in vegas or broadway at a third of the cost for like 3 to 5 months and made a profit...

I hear they're planning on resurrecting it anyway. That's kind of his thing.

Who thought it was a good idea to do this in arenas?

Were I employed, I would have definitely paid to check this out. The soundtrack for JCS is phenomenal.

i;m honestly surprised. I feel like these shows would have nearly sold out due to the cast.

Makes sense. The broadway crowd will 1. never go to see shows in an arena because they know it will sound like shit. and 2. know that none of these people have experience with broadway and thus will be shit.
