Cheap Jesus Christ Superstar tickets at Echo Arena
Jesus Christ Superstar first came to major theatres when it debuted on Broadway in October 1971 at the Mark Hellinger Theatre in New York. The Broadway production ran for 720 performances, closing two years later after grossing £2.8 million at the box office, and Andrew Lloyd Webber won the prestigious Drama Desk Award as Most Promising Composer for Jesus Christ Superstar in 1972.
Less than 12 months after the Broadway show opened, the rock spectacle came to London, exploding onto the West End at the Palace Theatre in August 1972 in a hugely successful production directed by Jim Sharman and starring Paul Nicholas singing the part of Jesus.
By 1980, after 3,358 performances, Jesus Christ Superstar had become the longest running musical in West End history at the time and grossed £7.5 million.
Two decades later, Jesus Christ Superstar received its first blessing from the Vatican when a production by Massimo Romeo Piparo’s Peep Arrow company was endorsed by the Vatican’s official 2000 Jubilee Programme. Songs from the show were performed in front of Pope John Paul II in Rome during the Jubilee in May of that year.

Loosely based on the Gospels, Jesus Christ Superstar is a respectful but rousing musical retelling of the deeply eventful last week in the life of Jesus.
When Jesus’ disciple Judas Iscariot starts to worry about Jesus’ growing reputation as the Son of God, he warns Jesus not to raise the anger of the Roman Empire. But Jesus doesn’t do as he asks, and is led to his downfall at the hands of the evil King Herod.

Liverpool Echo Arena
The Liverpool Echo Arena is located on the King's Dock site in Liverpool, close to James Street and Liverpool Central rail stations. Built in 2008, this 11,000 capacity venue is one of the most environmentally sustainable in the country.
Situated alongside the Grade I listed Albert Dock complex and World Heritage Site on the eastern bank of the river Mersey, this brand new arena is right in the heart of Liverpool city centre.
The Arena was opened in 2008 by the Queen and Prince Phillip and has since hosted artists as diverse as Kiss, Duran Duran, Rhianna and the Pussycat Dolls.
In its inaugural year, the Liverpool Echo Arena was the venue for the MTV Europe Music Awards and its stage was enlivened by the presence of acts including Oasis, Lady Gaga and Muse.
Among the most notable of the countless events and concerts to have taken place at this exciting new arena during its short history are The MOBO Awards, The X Factor auditions, a sell-out JLS show and Walking With Dinosaurs.
Today, the arena enjoys consistent success and has established a solid reputation as a great venue for huge music concerts and Awards shows.
The venue is especially noteworthy for its specially built facilities, which were designed to reduce its CO2 emissions by half. Impressive Green features include bespoke controls for light, temperature and electricity usage and rainwater harvesting for toilet flushing. A crop of turbines on the River Mersey contributes to the Arena’s electricity supply.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Liverpool Echo Arena make it the perfect place to see large-scale rock or pop concerts and other live shows.
