Former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach, late of "Jekyll & Hyde" and "The Rocky Horror Show" on Broadway, has posted the following update via his official web site regarding his upcoming role as the Messiah in the new national tour of "Jesus Christ Superstar", set to launch on Nov. 1 in California:"Hey, what is up!!!! Well, as you can see by the tour dates [posted on the site], I am about to embark on what is undoubtedly the biggest tour I have ever been a part of in my life. I am extremely excited to present to all of you a production that makes each & every time you have seen me in the past pale in comparison. I have been rehearsing for weeks for my most challenging role yet & I am happy to say that things are really kicking ass in a major league fashion with this cast & crew. But what I want you all to understand, & to be honest I really didn't fully understand until recently, is that this is the by far the BIGGEST show I have ever been a part of, as far as staging, sound, lights, effects, costuming, & production goes. Also, there is ... the SCREAM. In 'Jekyll & Hyde' & 'Rocky Horror' I went into my upper 'scream' register a few times , but in 'Jesus Christ Superstar' the score demands more SCREAMS than you can imagine . If you are a fan of the beginning of 'Monkey Business' or the end of '18 & Life', I guarantee you will dig this show! Not to mention the INCREDIBLE voice of Carl Anderson as Judas who keeps me on my toes with each & every utterance from his golden pipes as does Natalie Toro as Mary, & every other cast member as well! I have just spent the first day rehearsing on the actual stage set itself & am absolutely stunned by the lighting & staging WAIT TILL YOU SEE THIS!!!!!!!!! Stay tuned for PICTURES coming a.s.a.p.!!!!" "Jesus Christ Superstar" are currently rehearsing and teching in La Mirada, California, before playing a run of Nov. 1-17 at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts, and heading into the desert to play the Aladdin in Las Vegas, NV. A year-long tour follows to San Antonio, TX, Greenville, DC, Orlando, Minneapolis, Louisville, Kalamazoo, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Baltimore, Vancouver, Milwaukee, Houston, and Los Angeles, among other cities. The tour will last at least to September 2003.
