Hero: The Rock Opera to return for second US tour.

THE CHRISTIAN rock opera Hero: The Rock Opera, which surprised media pundits by almost entirely selling out its 19-city tour of America last autumn, is to return for a further US tour in the spring from 13th April to 10th May. Although the spring cast is still being formulated, president of EMI Christian Publishing and Hero creator Eddie DeGarmo said he expects most of the original cast - including Michael Tait as the Jesus character Hero and Rebecca St James as Maggie - to return. Said DeGarmo, "We had such an overwhelming response to the tour. The changes will be to refine it overall." CR
