Fozzy’s Chris Jericho Hospitalized Amid UK Tour, New Album “Boombox” Announced


Fozzy frontman and current All Elite Wrestling superstar Chris Jericho was hospitalized in the UK this week amid a tour with his aforementioned band. An update posted by the Swansea Sin City venue which the band were scheduled to perform at tonight, February 10th, reads:

Chris was checked into hospital by doctors, with a non-COVID-related, treatable health issue. Regrettably the show on Friday in Swansea is canceled and all tickets will be refunded. Will have updates on Saturday’s show in Nottingham and Sunday’s show in London as soon as possible.”

Given that it has been business as usual on his official Twitter account today, it would seem that Jericho‘s hospitalization isn’t a cause for great concern. News of his hospitalization arrives around the announcement of Fozzy‘s new studio album “Boombox“, which is headed for an April 15th release date. Per an official press release issued today, Jericho said of that effort:

“‘Judas‘…both the album & the song…was a HUGE breakthrough for Fozzy. It took us to the next level and positioned us as legit players at rock radio and as a live draw. As a result, we knew that we had to follow up with the album of a lifetime….’Boombox‘ is that album!! You’ve already heard the top ten singles ‘Nowhere To Run‘ and ‘Sane‘- kick ass, hooky songs that set the tone for this record. But it’s, ‘I Still Burn‘, ‘Army Of One‘ and ‘Relax‘, that in my opinion are going to take this album and this band even further up the rock n roll ladder!!

I firmly believe this is the third best album of our entire career!! (Of course I think it’s our best…but I always wanted to hear a band say that) So crank the volume and hold the ‘Boombox‘ up to your earholes!! It’s gonna be a wild ride….”
