You might remember that, this autumn, Tim had a little* role in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s UK touring arena production of Jesus Christ Superstar as Judas Iscariot.

If you missed the tour or simply want to relive the experience then you’ll like this – the DVD of the show is out today! Filmed over two nights at Birmingham’s NIA, this modern reworking of the rock opera sees the last days of Jesus set amongst the London riots.

You can pick up the DVD (or Blu-Ray, if you like seeing every bead of sweat on Tim’s face) from all good retailers, both online and offline.

If you’re outside the UK, there are plans afoot to release it internationally early next year.

Anyway, enough of the talking, here are some clips so you can see what you’ll be getting!

Damned For All Time

Gethesemane

King Herod’s Song

Judas’ Death

Superstar

I saw the show in Manchester on 30th September, you were beyond amazing. Seeing you descend from the ceiling will stay as one of the greatest moments of my life. Brilliant, bloody brilliant.

Tiiiiim. Tim, Tim Tim. JCS came through the post on Monday. I watched it as soon as I got home from college. I’d been feeling down* all week, and seeing how far you’d come and how amazing you are and how you STILL manage to look awkward and humble at the end of it all, despite being an absolute show-stealer, reminded me of a lot of things regarding you that would take too long to list here. Long story short, seeing JCS was a life saver. Literally.

Love you Tim. Hope to see you in the flesh someday.


*Pretty frickin’ awful. In many senses of the word.

Ours arrived in NZ from Amazon … on the doorstep after a big day at work. Loved it!

Hi Kristy, that’s such a shame! I pre-ordered through Amazon too and our 2 packs of DVD’s arrived last Thursday – delivered to the door. I don’t know where else Australians can buy the DVD. Is it still available through the JCSS website? It seems tough to have to wait till January – our commiserations!

Kristy on 25th of November 2012

Hey fellow Aussies,
Where did you buy your copies of the DVD from? I pre-ordered mine a couple of weeks ago from Amazon. Last week I got an email from them saying that my order had been delayed due to an issue with their supplier. I am not due to get mine until late Jan! Wahhh! This is too long to wait. If you know of a place where I can get it earlier I would love to hear from you! I was told I’m allowed to cancel my Amazon order, which I will if I can get it elsewhere. Thanks in advance for your help! X

Janet in Canberra on 24th of November 2012

Your “Damned for all time” was unbelievably fantastic: you so are a rock star! My daughter saw you in Newcastle Arena, I saw you at the movies in Canberra and we’ve ordered the DVD. Hope there’s a CD too as I’ve got to have it! Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s music is as exciting as ever, especfially the unusual time signatures. Hope you bring the show to Australia soon.

Our DVD arrived in Sydney this week and we just LOVE it. Thank you so very much! You are simply wonderful as Judas and have given JCSS a whole new lease of life for us. We are now on our 3rd re-order from Amazon UK for multiple copies for family and friends. So many people we know were devastated to have missed the short showing the film had in our cinemas here (we were lucky enough to have seen it – brilliant!), so the very least we can do is get them the DVD. Thank you for the impact your performance has made – truly unforgettable!

Catherine Ford on 23rd of November 2012

I would really like to thank you Tim for performing this role. I have always loved this musical. When I heard you were starring in it, I bought tickets for Liverpool. Brilliant! I got the blu ray on the day of release and it’s wonderful. Thank you so much for the effort you put into this performance. Your acting skills are superb. I was so moved. Your vocal talents are amazing. It is a memory I will treasure for all time and it’s so lovely to be able to watch this stunning production over and over again. Thanks again .x

Sally Quilford on 23rd of November 2012

My daughter and I came to see you in Superstar at the Sheffield Arena. You are quite simply the best Judas ever! I hope you do more stage work, as you have a fantastic voice and an incredible stage presence. Maybe Che Guevara in Evita next?

Wilma on 20th of November 2012

Will the international release be here in Brazil too, or just in the US?!

Please release here, brazilians love Tim Minchin as well ;D

Franklin on 20th of November 2012

US Version listed on Amazon with Jan 13, 2013 ship date for $49.99 – Taking pre-orders now. A bit pricey, but I’m in!

Laura Rathbone on 20th of November 2012

Why does Tim’s voice sound incredibly messed around with? He sang amazingly on tour and shouldn’t have his voice electronically messed around with…I was so looking forward to having this as a birthday present, now I don’t want it atall…I’m ashamed! x

Julie on 20th of November 2012

Went to see you in Sheffield playing Judas on 21st October. Words cannot express how amazing and talented you are! We bought Superstar on Itunes yesterday and had an fantastic night watching and re watching you over and over again! Thank you so much for a terrific show

Daniela on 20th of November 2012

My copy should arrive in Rome today :) Can’t wait to relive the wonderful experience in London last 17th of october. Tim was absolutely right about him playing Judas :)

Naomi on 20th of November 2012

Just that clip from Judas’ death scene has me tearing up and I’ve never seen JCSS before. Looks like an incredible performance and I can’t wait to get the DVD, even if it’s a seemingly agonising wait between now and Christmas!

louisa on 20th of November 2012

I was lucky enough to go to the O2 and I picked up the Arena tour DVD today, was absolutly amazing so much so that an old couple sitting next to me changed seats in the interval because i could not stay seated and danced the whole way through the show!!!

Liz in Oz on 19th of November 2012

I’ve just heard from Amazon that my copies of the DVD will arrive in Australia next Monday. Yee-haa! It’s very exciting – I went to the screening here in Sydney and can’t wait to re-live the experience. Tim was just superb as Judas. A genuine SUPERSTAR!

Marie Appleby on 19th of November 2012

The best Judas ever. Stunning. Simply stunning.

Stephanie on 19th of November 2012

Judas’ Death makes me cry every time. His emotion is just so amazing. I wish I could see the whole thing! This international release couldn’t come soon enough!

Ali on 19th of November 2012

Oh my, this is so good, am ordering the DVD now. So gutted I never got to see the live show. Tim Minchin, what a superstar!

Matt on 19th of November 2012

This is a great modern rendition of JCS! Anyone who keeps thinking about the (still utterly great) film should get out from underneath their rock!

Laura on 19th of November 2012

Omg Tim! amazing! :O <3

Rebecca on 19th of November 2012

Watching it now, it’s bringing it all back but I love seeing all the little looks and stuff that you miss at the back of an arena.

Your Judas is a masterpiece, love it :)

Dominika on 19th of November 2012

ABSOLUTELY GREAT!!!!! Tim you are the best!!!!
