For old school rock purists, it ain’t summer concert season without an Iron Maiden show to go wild out. And this summer, Maiden fans will ‘up the irons’ as the heavy metal heroes set up show at Banc Of California Stadium on Saturday, September 14. And in the middle of the chaos will be WWE legend Chris Jericho and his rock band Fozzy, which will share the bill with the UK greats.
"When we got the call to join Iron Maiden on their Banc Of California Stadium show in Los Angeles,” Fozzy singer Chris Jericho states, “we knew two 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 U.S. 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 & roll show in the world today.”
Fozzy will be on tour in support of its seventh LP, Judas, which spurred hits like "Painless", "Burn Me Out" and the title track "Judas”. The title track 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 29 million U.S. streams to date and the music video has over 28 million views.
Over the years, Fozzy has toured with the likes of Metallica, Kiss, Avenged Sevenfold, Slash, Saxon, Theory of a Dead Man, Drowning Pool, Steel Panther, and Buckcherry.
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.
Fozzy’s Unleashed In the West 2019 headline tour will feature special guest Jared Nichols James. The tour starts on September 5 in Denver and wraps on September 28 in Atlanta.
"It's been almost six months since we wrapped up our amazing 200 city tour in support of the Judas album,” Fozzy guitarist Rich Ward says. “Since then we've been sequestered to a top secret bunker where we are writing what will become our next record. As much as we love the creative environment of the studio, there is no substitute for loud amps and the unique exchange of energy that only occurs on the big stage. In September we return to that stage, in what will be one of our biggest and boldest tours to date. Grab your helmets and dancing shoes, Fozzy is coming to town!"
