The current arena tour of Jesus Christ Superstar will be filmed and broadcast to over 6,000 cinemas in Australia and America, ahead of a possible US tour. It is also being release on DVD on 19 November 2012.

The show, which stars Ben Forster, Mel C, Tim Minchin and Chris Moyles, is currently on a UK tour that returns to London, at the Wembley Arena, on 17 October.

After the tour finishes in Nottingham on 20 October there are negotiations underway to take it on an international tour. Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber revealed: "The American producers are so excited about the British cast that they would love to take the whole thing lock, stock and barrel."

Ahead of this US audiences will get a taste of the show at two 'as live' cinema screenings taking place on 29 October and 1 November.
