ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — FOZZY’s show at Empire Live Albany has been cancelled, as a result of a bruised larynx from lead singer Chris Jericho. The rest of their U.S. tour has been postponed as a result. Refunds for the show, which was originally supposed to take place on Saturday, October 8, can be obtained at the point of purchase.

Jericho released a statement regarding his larynx and the postponement of their tour.

“After five weeks of waiting for my bruised larynx to heal with minimal results, my Laryngologist sent me for a vocal stroboscope today (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. Now, I’ve never seen my vocal cords before (have you seen yours?!), but once I got past their gnarly appearance, I could see what the Doctor’s were seeing plain as day….that 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!”
