Buckcherry and Fozzy Provide a Sinfully Good Time in New York City
It’s always a party when Buckcherry come into town, but when they're joined by Fozzy, it's double the fun! Buckcherry are touring in support of their latest album 'Confessions' and their upcoming 'F--k' EP, while Fozzy are prepping their new album 'Do You Wanna Start a War?'
Buckcherry wasted no time as they began the fan favorite ‘Lit Up’ and the energy level only elevated from that point forward. Old-school Buckcherry fans also grooved to tunes ‘Ridin’,’ ‘Dirty Mind’ and ‘All Night Long.’ They also performed a few newer tracks like ‘Gluttony,’ ‘Water’ and ‘Dreamin’ of You’ from their latest effort ‘Confessions.’
At age 43, Josh Todd had energy that would give frontmen half his age a run for their money. Every member of Buckcherry is dynamic live whether it’s the moves of guitarist Stevie D. or the riffage provided by Keith Nelson. Drummer Xavier Muriel and bassist Kelly LeMieux add to the group’s force onstage.
Special moments of the night included Todd belting out a snippet of AC/DC’s ‘Big Balls,’ an awesome intro of the Rolling Stones ‘Miss You’ which led into their own hit ‘Crazy B----.’ Their encore included a cover of Icona Pop’s ‘I Love It (Say F--- It).’ By the end of the night much of the crowd was blissfully inebriated so it made perfect sense to finish off the set with ‘Too Drunk.’
While Buckcherry started their set with an old favorite, Fozzy took the stage previously and kicked things into high gear with the title track off their upcoming album ‘Do You Wanna Start a War?’ They performed the fresh tune ‘Lights Go Out.’
The band is fronted by the one and only “The Ayatollah of Rock 'n' Rolla” himself, Chris Jericho, who graced the stage with a vest that lit up like Christmas lights. Fozzy as a whole are a hell of a good time to see live. It’s obvious onstage that they are all there to have as much fun as they possibly can.
Fans belted out anthems like ‘Enemy,’ ‘God Pounds His Nails’ and ‘Sandpaper.’ The band ended their set with a nod to their beginnings as they performed a very cool rendition of the Krokus song ‘Eat the Rich’ off of Fozzy’s self-titled debut record.
