Wait… What?

For well over 40 years now, the iconic rock opera ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ has been a national hit amongst the average American fan and now household, and it’s poised to be just that for many more years to come. It is considered a staple for NBC every year around Easter time.

As far as the world of classic rock is concerned, this year is particularly significant because of which rock legend is set to reprise his role as King Herod. That would be none other the legendary Alice Cooper.

This will be the second time that Alice Cooper has starred in ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ as King Herod. He debuted in the role all the way back in 2000 and is finally set to return. ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ is set to air in 2018 on April 1st, and no it’s not an April Fools joke.
