Fozzy Is Coming To NZ


Heavy Metal band Fozzy play New Zealand for the first time during Judas Rising tour. 

Fozzy is an American heavy metal band formed in Atlanta, Georgia, by lead singer and Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Federation (now World Wrestling Entertainment} wrestler Chris Jericho and guitarist Rich Ward aka The Duke in 1999. The band is at the top of their game with Rich Ward, one of the most versatile, underrated guitarists in rock n roll and Chris Jericho, who’s vocal range and passion for music makes one wonder just how he is able to excel in pretty much everything he does, destroying stages worldwide. Throw in the powerhouse rock solid drumming of Frank Fontsere, the blazing leads of Billy Grey and the genius & energy of returning bassist Paul DiLeo and it's no surprise that Fozzy has skyrocketed into becoming one of the hottest rock acts in years.

Following their most successful US & UK tours ever, Fozzy will bring their Judas Rising Tour to New Zealand for the first time, Australia for their first headline run since 2010 & their first Aussie appearance since 2013!

The band inched up the ladder after releasing four progressively popular studio albums. However, it was Sin & Bones (2012), that found the band reaching a level of success that drew a mass audience to drink in their trademark heavy melodic groove. But it was their next album, Do You Wanna Start A War (2014)  that really blew the door open, debuting at #54 on Billboard and giving the band their first top 30 single, Lights Go Out.

But, nothing compared to the juggernaut single Judas, lifted off the album of the same name. The song spent 5 weeks at #1 on the highly influential 'Big Uns Countdown' on Sirius/XM's Octane channel, amassed over 20 million views for its video on YouTube and stormed into the TOP 10 on the US Rock Radio Charts, where it was joined by the second single Painless.

Fozzy is back on the road with their wildly successful Judas Rising Tour and now it’s New Zealand and Australia’s turn. 

We can’t wait to see all our old friends who’ve been coming to rock with us since 2005, as well as make heaps of new ones... so put on your seatbelt and grab a helmet as this is gonna get CRAZY! - Chris Jericho.

Armed with two top 10 US Active Rock hits off their monster record Judas, the band is ready to rock your world this November!
