Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd will betray his band/the Son of God for 50 dates on tour this summer in a new production of Andrew Lloyd Weber’s rock musical Jesus Christ Superstar. 

The “arena rock show” will also feature Boyd as Judas, Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams as Mary, ‘NSYNC emeritus JC Chasez as Pilate, and Public Image Ltd. and Sex Pistols punk legend John Lydon as King Herod.

Jesus Himself will be played by Ben Forster, who was the winner of UK’s reality contest show “Superstar,” similar to “Grease: You’re The One That I Want.”

Boyd and Williams performed “Superstar” on Good Morning America this morning, which you can watch below. Boyd said before the performance, “It’s completely new, and it’s incredible.”

Full dates for the tour are forthcoming, but the show will kick off June 9 in New Orleans. Get the full dates here.

Last year, Brandon Boyd released a solo album under the moniker Sons of the Sea, more recently he was accused of stalking Svetlana Shusterman, a contestant on 2006’s Real World 17: Key West. Shusterman filed a restraining order against the rocker. Boyd maintains he has never met her.
