"In 1971 Andrew and I were thrilled by the first-ever Jesus Christ Superstar tour of the United States," said Tim Rice. "We certainly did not imagine then that 43 years later we would be witnessing another America-wide tour of our first big hit show. We are delighted and grateful that enthusiasm for Superstar has been maintained over the years and this new production presents the work in its most powerful format - as a true rock experience."
