FOZZY was forced to cancel its concert Friday night (December 10) in Swansea, United Kingdom after frontman Chris Jericho was hospitalized for a “treatable health issue.”
FOZZY was scheduled to perform in Swansea as part of “Save The World” tour of the U.K. However, the show appears to have been called off after the following statement was posted on the Instagram page of the Sin City club: “We were devastated to learn that FOZZY will have to cancel their planned date with us in Swansea [Friday].
“We have received this message from the band as of 9pm [Thursday] evening…
“‘Chris was checked into Hospital by doctors, with a non Covid related, treatable health issue. Regrettably the show on Friday in Swansea is cancelled and all tickets will be refunded. Will have updates on Saturdays show in Nottingham and Sunday’s show in London as soon as possible’.
“We can only apologise with the unavoidable shortness of the notice we can bring you. We assure you that in a year of closure and rearranged shows, we are devastated to have to remain closed once again.
“We wish Chris an incredibly speedy recovery. We very much hope he and the band are able to complete their UK tour and return safely to their families for Christmas.”
Earlier today, FOZZY announced new studio album, Boombox, which will be released on April 15th. The album, which includes the top 10 singles, “Nowhere to Run” and “Sane,” was once again produced by Johnny Andrews.
