Many viewers of the popular series American Idol were particularly impressed this season by Caleb Johnson, who became the first singer to win the competition by performing a number of hard rock and heavy metal classics. But as the performer prepares his first official solo album, it’s his future plans that really have zombie fans excited.
In a recent interview Johnson made a very brief comment to reporters about writing and producing a “zombie rock opera.” At first it seemed like an off-the-cuff remark, but Yahoo! quickly followed up with the singer and discovered that the project is a very real possibility!
“Hell yeah, I’d love to do a zombie rock opera!” said Johnson. And when asked about the plot of such an ambitious enterprise, the performer quickly responded “If I told you, it’d be so in-depth. I have something written out.”
With the success of recent Broadway musicals like Rock of Ages, and off-Broadway productions like Evil Dead: The Musical… the timing may be perfect for an epic zombie-themed rock show. Of course, only time will tell whether Caleb Johnson can bring the undead to life on stage. But we’ll be eagerly awaiting more details!
