This is CRAZY... We got tickets for the Dec 11th show in NYC:

From her Official Site

Peaches, the bad girl of electro punk, and Chilly Gonzales, piano
virtuoso and rap entertainer, will bring their unique, completely
stripped version of “Jesus Christ Superstar” the rock opera, to
the stage of HAU 1.

They'll narrate the story of the last week in the life of Jesus
Christ – from entering Jerusalem until the crucifixion, using songs
from the musical. Peaches will sing all roles including: Jesus, Maria
Magdalena, the disciples and the Pharisees, alongside Gonzales' piano
accompaniment. Don't miss this concert version of Jesus Christ
Superstar by two extra-ordinary performers!

Peaches: “To perform Jesus Christ Superstar as a one-woman-song is
a crazy enterprise. Very demanding and very difficult. When I was
sixteen I often sang the whole musical to myself all alone in my room.
It tells an entire story without spoken text, only with vocals, in the
style of a rock opera. I’m a performer, my concerts are extravagant
and play with exaggerations. This project allows me to do without all
this. I want to confront this task totally exposed, because it is a
possibility. It's a question of stamina.

When I told Gonzales about this crazy idea he replied: ‘I want to
accompany you on piano.’ Until then, we didn’t know that we shared
an obsession for this musical, and that secretly both of us already
knew it by heart.”
