Following FOZZY Across America is the final live performance of the “Judas” set that was performed in over 200 cities around the world and will include stories of the road.
“After having to postpone our “Save The World Tour” multiple times due to the continuing lockdown, we decided we wanted to do something special for all of our fans worldwide who rocked with us over the past three years on the Judas tour cycle!” states FOZZY frontman Chris Jericho. “So, on November 14, we will be coming at you LIVE without a net, to play some kick ass rock n roll for you all! We’re also gonna tell you some fun road stories, have a few drinks and maybe even do some Riverdancing! So come join us and let’s all celebrate and commemorate the most successful album and tour of Fozzy’s career.”
The band’s seventh LP, Judas, spurred hits like “Painless”, “Burn Me Out”, and title track, “Judas”, which spent five weeks at #1 on the ”Big Uns Countdown’ on Sirius/XM’s Octane channel and peaked at #5 on the Active Rock Mediabase Chart. The song has over 54 million U.S. streams to date and the music video has over 43 million views to date. Watch the music video HERE. FOZZY is gearing up to release their new album and follow up to Judas early 2021 and recently released their anthemic track “Nowhere To Run”, which was the band’s third track to hit Top 10 on Rock Radio, following “Judas” and “Painless”.

Since the beginning, Fozzy has been about hard work, dedication, and delivering great rock ‘n’ roll to their devoted fans worldwide; reminding them that music is all about invoking dirty, sweaty jubilation and doing it loudly! The band formed in 2000 to release their self-titled debut album. Throughout the years, Fozzy released six progressively popular records, including 2012’s Sin & Bones, featuring the hit single “Sandpaper”, which found the band reaching a level of legitimacy that drew a mass audience to drink in their trademark heavy melodic groove. More recently, the hard rockers released their seventh studio album, Judas, which includes their explosive title track. “Judas” catapulted up the Active Rock Radio Chart. Fozzy’s follow-up singles “Painless”, which peaked at #7 on the Active Rock Mediabase Chart, and “Burn Me Out”, which peaked at #17 on the Active Rock Mediabase Chart, solidified the band as Rock superstars.
Fozzy is Chris Jericho (vocals), Rich Ward (guitars, vocals), Frank Fontsere (drums), Billy Grey (guitars) and Randy Drake (bass).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: If you’ve seen them in action before you already know that Fozzy is one of the more entertaining live bands out there. I remember that I was initially skeptical when I learned that a popular WWE wrestler was fronting a Heavy Metal/Hard Rock band but wow was I surprised when I caught them in action as it was a night that was stockpiled with fun. The announcement about the band doing a livestream is no longer surprising news one from anyone because let’s face it, there are not going to be any live shows in the sense that we normally enjoy them for quite some time. I’d rather they do livestreams instead of nothing and these will end up becoming cool things to include on expanded CD releases but I digress. So far I haven’t participated in any of these but as I close this announcement up I wonder what you all think about this bit of news. Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time around.
