“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!

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.”
