Kate Ceberano and Jon Stevens take on hits from Jesus Christ Superstar in Superstars Live

Words by Staff Writer

Australian music titans Kate Ceberano and Jon Stevens set to share their greatest hits live this October/November

In their spectacular new Superstars Live Show Jon Stevens and Kate Ceberano will perform spine-tingling hits including the ARIA Award-winning ‘Everything’s Alright’, and ‘I Don’t Know How To Love Him’ – songs that helped made them household names in the theatre world and outside of their solo careers.

The new tour will take in six states and the ACT, with nine shows showcasing iconic hits like Jon Stevens’ ‘Touch’ and ‘Take Me Back’ and Kate Ceberano’s ‘Bedroom Eyes’ and ‘Brave’. Superstars Live comes more than 30 years after the Australian arena phenomenon Jesus Christ Superstar toured starring John Farnham alongside Stevens and Ceberano. The tour includes a stop in to Geelong Arts Centre for regional audiences.

“Kate and I can feel the energy from the crowd when we perform the JCS hits together. Delta bought us together last December for her Christmas special and requested that we perform ‘Everything’s Alright’ – and the response blew us away. It was magical, and afterwards we had so many people – Delta included – tell us we should do more with it. This encouragement, and the fact that it’s the 50th anniversary of Jesus Christ Superstar, created the seeds from which the Superstars Live show have grown. We can’t wait to take it on the road,” says Jon Stevens

In a special tribute Stevens and Ceberano will also honour Australia’s ‘The Voice’ and original Superstar, John Farnham whose rendition of Jesus in the 1992 version of Jesus Christ Superstar is one of the most iconic performances in Australian theatrical history.

“Jon and I have been great mates for a really long time now, and have shared the stage together. But we’ve never done a full show like this one. We’ve always had an awesome reaction to performing the JCS songs together and with Delta’s encouragement the time was right for us to take it to the next level and put together a full show. We both have so much love for John Farnham and the incredible experience we all shared and all these years later that remains as a cherished memory. We’re excited we can bring that back for those who saw us in the original production, and for a whole new generation,” says Kate Ceberano.
