FOZZY are proud to announce that they will be touring with British metal legends SAXON on the North American “Sacrifice And Sin Tour” scheduled to run September 12 – October 10, 2013. FOZZY VIP Meet and Greet Packages are available exclusively at FOZZYROCK.com.
“After our highly successful US tour last summer on UPROAR, we’ve been chomping at the bit for the right opportunity to return to North America…and now it has arrived!” says FOZZY frontman Chris Jericho. “To tour with the legendary Saxon is a metal dream come true and the perfect way to satisfy all of our amazing fans in the US and Canada and to make tons of new ones in the process. Get ready for Sacrifice and Sin…we’re gonna tear your heads off and leave u screaming FOZZY, FOZZY, FOZZY!!”
Touring in support of their most successful album yet, Sin And Bones debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart upon release by Century Media Records last summer. The album contains the hit single “Sandpaper.” The official music video for the track has amassed more than 500,000 views on YouTube.
SAXON recently released their critically acclaimed new album Sacrifice but promise to play all of the fan favorites from their three decade-plus catalogue, including “Denim & Leather,” “Wheels Of Steel,” “Ride Like The Wind,” “Motorcycle Man” and “Heavy Metal Thunder,” all of which have cemented the band’s legendary status.
“So far, the Sacrifice World Tour has taken us from the Bahamas to South America and back to Europe for the festival season,” says Saxon’s Biff Byford. “Now it is time for us to return to North America for a series of dates with the one and only FOZZY. We have been friends with Chris Jericho for years so there has never been a better time to hook up with FOZZY for a tour that will take us from the east coast to the west coast and finally winding up in the Great White North.”
Opening support on the tour will be HALCYON WAY.
