When Fozzy’s Friday night (Dec. 10) gig in Swansea, Wales was cancelled due to lead singer Chris Jericho being hospitalized for a non-COVID illness, reports indicated he could be released and able to perform this weekend.
The band’s website lists Saturday night’s show in Nottingham, England as cancelled. But Sun., Dec. 12’s sold out London one is still a go, and the Ayatollah of Rock ‘n’ Roll looks like he’ll be available to belt out “Judas” tomorrow night in The Big Smoke.
After news broke he was in the hospital, Jericho sent word to Dave Meltzer at Wrestling Observer that he felt good, and that doctors just wanted to observe him while he got over whatever non-COVID ailment he was dealing with. This all backs that up.
Fozzy will have some news to celebrate when they play Islington Academy tomorrow night, too. The band recently announced their next album, Boombox, will drop on April 15.
Jericho should be available for some AEW work after tomorrow, but Fozzy heads to Australia in February, the next Jericho Cruise is in March, and then there’s a big “Save The World” tour of the United States in April & May.
Good thing AEW is fine without him these days. And good to see Le Champion back on the streets.
