Foxxy returns to NYC in support of his “Judas Rising” album. Support will come from Dark Sky Choir and Through Fire. Please note that Santa Cruz has pulled off of this tour and will not be appearing.
To say that December is already proving to be one that is loaded with information would be an understatement. Sure we are heading towards the closing of 2017, but bands are tossing out their 2018 plans out like crazy. This is a very good thing and if you’ve enjoyed the band Fozzy that is led by Chris Jericho then this will rock your senses too. Take a look at the press, the poster and the proposed dates. I’ll close out with additional editorial as well. Here we go.
The Press Release:
FOZZY, the active rock band led by Chris Jericho, will continue to rock their fans across America on their Judas Rising Tour with newly added tour dates in 2018. Set to launch February 28 in New Orleans, LA, the 25-date trek will take the band (Jericho: vocals, Rich Ward: guitars, vocals, Frank Fontsere: drums, Billy Grey: guitars and Paul DiLeo: bass) from east to west, including stops in Los Angeles on March 10 and New York City on April 5, before bringing them back across the country through the spring. Through Fire, Santa Cruz and Dark Star Choir will round out the bill for the night of rock headlined by FOZZY. Tickets for these newly announced dates (see below for list) go on sale to the public Friday, December 8.
“I’m stoked to do this extensive tour of the States now that ‘Judas,’ the song, is a Top 5 rock radio hit and Judas, the album, has gone top 40!” says Chris Jericho. “Fozzy is bigger than we’ve ever been, which means bigger production, bigger songs and bigger lighted jackets! So we can’t wait to rock your literal socks off starting in February!! JUDAS IS RISING!”
“I started playing guitar because of how deeply powerful the experience of going to concerts was for me,” Rich Ward adds. “With a hit single and a new album pushing Fozzy to new heights, I can’t wait to get back on the road in America to capture the power that only live music can create. Make sure to bring a helmet and your dancing shoes when Fozzy rolls through your town.”
The upcoming dates come on the heels of the October release of the band’s seventh album, JUDAS (Century Media), which Loudwire named as one of the top 25 albums of 2017, saying the band has continued “honing their craft and steadily improving. JUDAS is their most polished and fully realized album, and should be their most successful, as well.”

The Details: If you watch Eddie Trunk on “That Metal Show” you are likely already very well aware of the band Buckcherry who he’s cited as being a band that fans should follow should they like stuff like Aerosmith and Guns N Roses. The sound they deliver is pure and solid Rock and Roll and while I’ve only caught them a couple of times myself, I am always impressed in the level of adoration that their fans offer up to them. They are a great live act thanks to the ball of energy singer they have in Josh Todd and that makes it cool to be offering up this giveaway to our readership thanks to the fine folks at Livenation. The show will also feature Fozzy (Chris Jericho’s band) and you should know that this has been moved from Irving Plaza over to The Gramercy Theatre.

The Details: Saxon is one of the most important and perhaps also prominent of the NWOBHM bands out there in today’s music geography. Their overall impact on the scene and how Metal was to be delivered for many years after their own inception still resonates loudly in the hearts and minds of their worldwide fans. Fronted by Biff Byford, he leads the charge of the Metal forces and will bring their classics to life along with new material from the “Sacrifice” album that was just recently released. They will be joined by Fozzy (featuring Chris Jericho) and Halcyon Way so you know this show is going to be an exciting one. I am absolutely psyched that thanks to the fine folks in the B.B. King Blues Club marketing team, a few lucky PiercingMetal fans are going to get to see the show for free. More on this below.
