The spectacular Jesus Christ Superstar arena tour of Australia is already rocking around the country, with Tim reprising his (award winning) dream role of Judas Iscariot, for delighted and emotional home crowds.

If you can’t make it along to one of the shows or missed picking up a DVD at the arena and want to relive the experience, then here’s some good news:

The Jesus Christ Superstar Arena Tour DVD will be released in Australia on the 4th July 2013! The DVD (or Blu-Ray, if you wish to examine Tim’s dreads, tatts or steely blues in minute detail) is available for pre-order now from: the Jesus Christ Superstar website, EZYDVD, JB Hi-Fi and many other DVD retailers.

The production was filmed over two nights at Birmingham’s NIA when the show toured UK arenas in 2012. As well as Tim in the role of Judas, the fabulous cast includes Melanie C as Mary Magdalene, Chris Moyles as King Herod and Winner of the ITV primetime show Superstar Ben Forster in the title role of Jesus.

Here are a few clips to get you in the mood… or rather various moods:

Sensational, spectacular show! Tim was even more amazing than I could have imagined, and I knew he’d be good. Ben *rocked*, astounding voice:) Loved every minute of it, and happy to have the UK version, but as others have mentioned would dearly love to add the Australian Cast version to our collection, Blu Ray preferred, but would settle for CD…..or LP, just please, Aussie version????:)

Absolutely LOVED the Sydney show. Please tell me there will be an Australian cast version of the DVD. Please!

No No No – I don’t WANT the UK version on dvd – I want to purchase the Oz version – Jon Stevens/Andrew O’Keefe etc etc. Any news on when or if an Oz version will be released on dvd????

You dont need a reality tv series or nation voting to select Tim Minchin as the show-stealer at Rod Laver Melbourne 16/6.
I found the setting so personal and current that I teared up the who first half.. tough gig though, committing suicide twice daily!

I already have this DVD and it’s great. Now, having seen the show tonight in Sydney, I am so glad to have this memento to remind me of a great night and all the wonderful performances (especially Tim’s of course). This is a fabulous production and the DVD allows you to re-live it over and over.
