Chris Jericho commented:

“Due to the news of the world @fozzyrock are choosing to push back our #SaveTheWorld tour yet again! Hopefully rock shows will be allowed and safe in Oct/Nov!

Just know that we have been in intense discussions with all of the local promoters involved and we promise these shows will be following ALL health and safety guidelines established by each governing municipality…. and we are strongly encouraging everybody to wear a mask! (I personally Wanna make them mandatory, but I’m not a state governor.) Having said all that, we can’t wait to rock with you all again…SAFELY!

Go to fozzyrock.com for all ticket and VIP info! If you already bought tix for any of the shows, they are all still valid!”

Fozzy Delay New Album To 2021

Fozzy were previously planning to release a new album, titled “2020,” this year, but the effort has since been delayed. The record will now be released next year under a new name. Chris Jericho said the following during a recent interview on Volume TV’s “Life In Six Strings“:

“The original idea was to call it ‘2020’, until we realized that we’re not gonna have this fucking thing done till November/December, so it’s not as contemporary anymore to put out an album called ‘2020’ when it’s 2021. Let’s just leave it behind.”

Chris Jericho commented:

“When we got the call to join Iron Maiden on their Banc Of California Stadium show in Los Angeles, we knew 2 things were imminent. One, this might be the biggest show Fozzy has ever played. Two, one show isn’t enough. So we decided to head out all across the western US to spread the Fozzpel and celebrate this great time in our lives!

Plus, it gets us out of the studio for a breath of fresh air…it gets a little stuffy in there sometimes when you’re recording a new record! So come ROCK with us and be a part of the most energetic, electric and FUN rock n roll show in the world today. Don’t miss Fozzy Unleashed In the West!!!”

Fozzy Sign With Sony Music

Fozzy have signed a new deal with Sony Music. Frontman Chris Jericho confirmed the news in the below video:

Man Barges Onto Fozzy’s Tour Bus & Injures Drum Tech, Gets Pummeled By Chris Jericho

Following Fozzy’s recent show in Regina, Saskatchewan, a man barged onto the band’s tour bus and ended up pulling their drum tech, Jack Slade, off the vehicle, breaking his collarbone in the process. After the incident, frontman and pro-wrestler Chris Jericho chased the intruder down to pummel him.

The story was reported by Wrestling Observer Radio’s Dave Meltzer, who had the following to say:

“There was apparently a kid helped play or did some drum work on the show and the kid wanted to get onto the tour bus or get autographs or something. I guess they don’t want him on and he ends up somehow sneaking on and one of the guys on the crew saw him and they got into a fight and the guy actually ended up with a broken collarbone because of the fight and then he gets kicked out.”

“So Jericho gives him a spear and he’s pounding on him from the mounted position. The people who were there watching this tried to hold the guy until the police arrived and then he got away. The police ended up catching him.”

An eyewitness also discussed things further with Loudwire:

“The guy was on meth and barged on the bus for an autograph. He was told he couldn’t just come onto the bus and to wait outside as Chris’ family was on the bus. He wouldn’t leave and took a swing at Jack Slade. He pulled Jack off the bus and Jack landed hard and broke his collarbone.”

“Chris chased the guy and tackled him. Then security came and called the cops. The guy ran away and jumped a fence and got caught on some barbed wire. Then got in his car and hit a security guard. Cops got him and charged him. He will be going to jail for sure.”
