Saxon And Fozzy Announce North American “Sacrifice And Sin” Tour
Fozzy will be joining forces with British metal legends Saxon in North America this fall on the Sacrifice And Sin tour.
Fozzy has announced that they will be touring with British metal band Saxon on a new North American tour dubbed the “Sacrifice And Sin Tour”. This tour will be running from September 12th to October 10th, 2013, and fans can purchase Fozzy VIP Meet and Greet packages 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!” said Fozzy vocalist and WWE Superstar 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!!”
Fozzy will be touring in support of their hit record Sin and Bones, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart when it released last summer. The hit song “Sandpaper”, featuring Avenged Sevenfold vocalist M. Shadows, has garnered over half a million views on YouTube.
Saxon has recently released the critically acclaimed album Sacrifice, but the band promises to play plenty of hits from its 30+ years of back 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.”
