Jesus Christ Superstar tour, including Tampa stop, canceled

A production of Jesus Christ Superstar that was scheduled for a June 15 stop at the Tampa Bay Times Forum has been canceled.

The production had a peculiar cast that included former Sex Pistol John Lydon, a.k.a. Johnny Rotten (as King Herod), Incubus singer Brandon Boyd (as Judas), Destiny's Child's Michelle Williams (as Mary) and 'N Sync's JC Chasez (as Pontius Pilate). British actor Ben Forster was to play Jesus.

A news release from the Forum on Friday gave no reason for the tour's cancellation, which was set to begin in just over a week.

Tickets bought online and over the phone will be automatically refunded. Other tickets will be refunded at point of sale.
