Rock powerhouse FOZZY announced their Unleashed In The West 2019 headline tour today. The U.S. tour, which includes special guest Jared James Nichols, starts on September 5th in Denver and wraps on September 28th in Atlanta.
The band will be taking a break from the studio to tour for the first time in 2019 as they prepare for the release of their new record. Tickets are available for purchase HERE.
“When we got the call to join Iron Maiden on their Banc Of California Stadium show in Los Angeles, we knew 2 things were imminent. One, this might be the biggest show Fozzy has ever played. Two, one show isn’t enough,” Chris Jericho said about the tour announcement. “So we decided to head out all across the western US 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 n roll show in the world today. Don’t miss Fozzy Unleashed In the West!!!
Rich Ward added, “It’s been almost 6 months since we wrapped up our amazing 200 city tour in support of the Judas album. 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!”
While waiting for Fozzy to come to a town near you, here’s the video
for the first single, and title of their latest album, Judas
. Hopefully, this tides you over a little.
