Peaches: The Wheelchair Show Mini-Doc and NYC Gets Peaches Christ Superstar!
For those of you who follow Peaches closely, you’ll know that recently, whilst performing at the Marés Vivas Festival 2010 in Portugal, she screwed up her ankle big time at the beginning of her set – it was a giant leap from the drum riser in the mammoth ghillie suit that did it...but of course, in true Peaches' style, she finished off the set (including crowd walking!) without a whimper. And the end result? An ankle the size of a melon and a big bad-ass plaster cast around her right leg!
With the Lovebox Weekender in London just two days later, what was she going to do? There’s no way she could cancel! Ingeniously, Peach got to work on putting together an exclusive set for the London Festival goers – a hilarious performance that will forever be known as The Wheelchair Show.
Watch the mini documentary recounting the tale below (semi-NSFW), then jump after for information on how, when, why and where Peaches will be bringing her Peaches Christ Superstar show (with Chilly Gonzales) to New York City later this year! Best news ever.
Now for the details on Peaches Christ Superstar in NYC...
Peaches will perform the American debut of Peaches Christ Superstar on December 11 at The Concert Hall at The New York Society for Ethical Culture. Her performance with Chilly Gonzales of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Sir Tim Rice's musical, Jesus Christ Superstar, made its worldwide debut in March in Berlin.
