FOZZY played the first of two shows as the support act for NICKELBACK this past Thursday (August 22) at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut. Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below.
When FOZZY performed in Canada last November, several concert-goers accused frontman Chris Jericho of singing along to pre-recorded tracks. After a video of FOZZY's Toronto gig surfaced online, former SKID ROW frontman weighed in, writing from his personal Facebook account: "Wow he mimes to a tape very well"
Earlier this year, Jericho defended Paul Stanley when the KISS frontman was accused of using pre-recorded vocal tracks on "End Of The Road" tour, saying that the "Star Child" "has nothing to prove to anybody." Jericho explained: "He's one of the greatest rock and roll singers of all time. I think that's something that anybody would say. I would much rather have him use the technology that's available to not sound like he's hurting himself, which then makes me not enjoy the show as much."
A new FOZZY song, "Nowhere To Run", received its world premiere yesterday (Friday, August 23) on Jericho's SiriusXM show "The Rock Of Jericho".
FOZZY has spent the last few months recording the follow-up to 2017's "Judas" album.
Jericho recently said that FOZZY would have a new single out in time for the band's September 14 concert in Los Angeles with IRON MAIDEN and a new full-length record in January or February of 2020.
FOZZY's fall tour starts on September 5 in Denver and wraps on September 28 in Atlanta.
