Fozzy confirms the group is suspending the rest of its tour in 2022.
Fozzy has published a detailed apology to fans after they were forced to postpone their 2022 tour due to an ongoing injury to Chris Jericho.
Jericho suffered a bruised larynx injury at AEW’s Quake at the Lake back in August during his World Championship match with Jon Moxley. Whilst Jericho has been able to continue wrestling, the injury has put a stop to his upcoming tour with Fozzy.
Taking to the official Fozzy Facebook page, Chris Jericho announced the band would be postponing their tour with the hope of returning in 2023:
“After five weeks of waiting for my bruised larynx to heal with minimal results, my Laryngologist sent me for a vocal stroboscope… (Thursday, September 15). This is a procedure in which a camera with a strobe light attached, takes detailed pictures of your vocal cords to find any hidden issues…the left side of my larynx is still bruised and swollen.
Good news is it’s not permanent and it IS healing! Bad news is I still need more time to heal, in order to be able to sing at 100%. Therefore we are forced to postpone and reschedule the rest of the 2022 US leg of the Save The World Tour. Nobody likes to move shows, least of all me, but if Fozzy and I can’t give you 100% during each and every show we do, we won’t do them. Therefore we are moving the shows to the spring of 2023.
We will see you at the rescheduled dates in 2023 and in the meantime thank you for your love and support and for making I Still Burn our biggest hit since Judas! We love you!”
