Fozzy - Judas Rising Tour
. Studio The Venue, Auckland
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!
And now FOZZY are headed to New Zealand for the first time ever! Armed with two top 10 US Active Rock hits, FOZZY is continuing the headlining “Judas Rising Tour” by hitting our shores this November!
However, calling them just “entertainers” would be abridging their talent as Rich Ward is one of the most versatile, underrated riffers in rock n roll and Chris Jericho’s vocal range and passion for music makes one wonder just how he is able to excel in pretty much everything he does. Throw in the powerhouse rock solid drumming of Frank Fontsere, the blazing leads of Billy Grey and the genius & energy of returning bassist Paul DiLeo and it's no surprise that FOZZY has skyrocketed into becoming one of the hottest rock acts in years.
The band inched up the ladder after releasing four progressively popular studio albums. However, it was 2012’s Sin & Bones, that found the band reaching a level of legitimacy that drew a mass audience to drink in their trademark heavy melodic groove. But it was their next album, Do You Wanna Start A War released in 2014 that really blew the door open, debuting at #54 on Billboard and giving the band their first top 30 single in "Lights Go Out”.
But as much success the band had enjoyed, nothing compared to the juggernaut single known as "Judas", lifted off the album of the same name. The song spent 5 WEEKS at NUMBER ONE on the highly influential 'Big Uns Countdown' on Sirius/XM's Octane channel, amassed over 20 MILLION views for its video on YouTube and cracked the TOP 5 on the US Rock Radio Charts. FOZZY is now back on the road on their wildly successful Judas Rising Tour and now it’s Australia’s turn. FOZZY is back on the stage to bring good times and great tunes to their fans around the world and elsewhere and it's the perfect time to remind the world that not only is Judas Rising, but so is FOZZY!
