Fozzy and Saxon are set to hit the road this Fall. The bands will hit the road beginning Thursday, September 12th on the “Sacrifice and Sin Tour.” The first performance of the tour will be at The Emporium in Patchogue, New York. The twenty-one date tour will take the bands almost into mid-October and will wind down in Vancouver, Canada. VIP Meet & Greet packages are available online at http://www.fozzyrock.com.
Fozzy front man and WWE Superstar Chris Jericho noted in a recent interview, his excitement of not only touring again, but also of touring with the legendary British metal outfit. “After our highly successful US tour last summer on UPROAR, we’ve been chomping at the bit for the right opportunity to return to North America…and now it has arrived!” he said. “To tour with the legendary Saxon is a metal dream come true and the perfect way to satisfy all of our amazing fans in the US and Canada and to make tons of new ones in the process. Get ready for Sacrifice and Sin…we’re gonna tear your heads off and leave u screaming FOZZY, FOZZY, FOZZY!!”
Both bands will be touring in support of new releases. Fozzy will be touring in support of its most recent release, 2012’s Sin and Bones. Saxon will be touring in support of its latest release, Sacrifice, which was released March 26th of this year. Saxon’s Biff Byford shared Jericho’s sentiments of the bands touring together this Fall in a recent interview. “So far, the Sacrifice World Tour has taken us from the Bahamas to South America and back to Europe for the festival season,” Byford said. “Now it is time for us to return to North America for a series of dates with the one and only FOZZY. We have been friends with Chris Jericho for years so there has never been a better time to hook up with FOZZY for a tour that will take us from the east coast to the west coast and finally winding up in the Great White North.”
