Century Media recording artist FOZZY announces a 12-date Canadian tour kicking off in Moncton, N.B. on Nov. 21, hitting major cities across Canada. The first four dates including Moncton, Halifax, Quebec City and Montreal are in support of Three Days Grace with FOZZY headlining the rest of the tour. FOZZY is Chris Jericho (vocals), Rich Ward(guitars, vocals), Frank Fontsere (drums) and Billy Grey (guitars) with touring bassistRandy Drakerounding out the lineup. Touring off of their seventh full-length album,Judas, released in October 2017, FOZZY is back on the stage to bring their brand of “rock n roll with a smile and a crunch” to their Canadian fans.
“Ever since the ‘Judas’ single was released last May, all I’ve been seeing on social media is a huge amount of support for Fozzy on rock radio all across Canada. It’s been awhile since we’ve done a proper tour of my homeland, so the timing was right to finish off the massively successful ‘Judas Rising Tour’ in my favorite country in the world! So all our friends and fans across the Great White North better bring a helmet, a toque and a two-four… ’cause Fozzy is coming to throw down with you,”shared Jericho.
The title track, “Judas,” released in May 2017, spent 5 WEEKS at NUMBER ONE on the highly influential “Big Uns Countdown” on SiriusXM’s Octane channel, amassed over 22 MILLION views for its video on YouTube and cracked the TOP 5 on the U.S. Rock Radio Charts. With that giant hit song and two other top tens in “Painless” and “Burn Me Out” in their arsenal, Fozzy spent the rest of 2017-2018 on their successful “Judas Rising Tour,” which took them to over 25 countries and was by far their most successful tour, despite sharing the stage with Metallica, Kiss, Avenged Sevenfold, Slash, Saxon, Theory Of A Dead Man, Drowning Pool, Steel Panther, Hardcore Superstar and Buckcherry in the past.

Since the beginning, Fozzy has been about hard work, dedication and delivering great rock ‘n’ roll to their devoted fans worldwide; reminding them that music is all about invoking dirty, sweaty jubilation and doing it loudly! Comprised of Chris Jericho (vocals), Rich Ward (guitars, vocals), Frank Fontsere (drums), Billy Grey (guitar) and Paul DiLeo (bass), the band formed in 2000 to release their self-titled debut album. Throughout the years, Fozzy released six progressively popular records, including 2012’s Sin & Bones, which featured the hit single “Sandpaper” (more than 3 million views on YouTube) that found the band reaching a level of legitimacy that drew a mass audience to drink in their trademark heavy melodic groove. More recently, the hard rockers released their seventh studio album, Judas, which includes their explosive title track. “Judas” catapulted up the Active Rock radio chart, eventually sitting at #1 for five consecutive weeks, and the music video amassed over 18 million views. With that giant hit song in their arsenal and a similar trajectory being set for the band’s follow-up single “Painless” (#8 on Active Rock radio), Fozzy is taking its live experience back on the road for their wildly successful “Judas Rising Tour.”
