A new arena version of Jesus Christ Superstar starring punk legend John "Johnny Rotten" Lydon and Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child has abruptly cancelled its 54-city tour just days before its launch in New Orleans.

Producers quietly pulled the plug on the project without explanation. Show publicist Fran Curtis did not return messages seeking a reason for the cancellation.

The tour was due to start on June 9 at Lakefront Arena in New Orleans and include stops in Detroit, Los Angeles, Chicago, St Louis, Phoenix, Seattle, Las Vegas, Denver, New York City, Boston and Philadelphia.
