NEW YORK (AP) _ A new arena version of “Jesus Christ Superstar” starring punk legend John “Johnny Rotten” Lydon and Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child has abruptly cancelled its 54-city tour just days before its launch in New Orleans.

Producers quietly pulled the plug on the project Friday without explanation. Show publicist Fran Curtis did not return messages seeking a reason for the cancellation.

The tour was to start June 9 at Lakefront Arena in New Orleans and include stops in Detroit, Los Angeles, Chicago, St. Louis, Phoenix, Seattle, Las Vegas, Denver, New York City, Boston and Philadelphia.

    He is wealthy. Very wealthy. Doesn’t work, either. He doesn’t like Obama . He LIKES that income tax cut, though.

    Okay, working people – knowing the above should be all we need to know.

    we should be against. Simple as that.

    It’s such a shame…..the UK members of the cast are now campaigning to take the tour to Glastonbury. Their Twitter page is @JCSglasto !
