Fozzy Postpone Remaining 2022 Tour Dates While Chris Jericho Heals From Bruised Larynx
UPDATE: Fozzy's Chris Jericho was hoping that he would eventually be able to return to the road in 2022, but the singer has now posted an update that his bruised larynx will need additional time to heal, thus forcing the postponement of Fozzy's remaining tour dates for the year. The singer released a statement that reads as follows and includes info on the rescheduled dates:
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! - Jericho

Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho injured his throat earlier this month during a wrestling event, therefore the band's tour has been postponed so that he can make a full recovery. The rockers issued a statement on their website regarding the incident.
"On Aug. 10 during the Quake by the Lake AEW event in Minneapolis, Chris suffered a throat injury that left him with a severely bruised larynx. Unfortunately, even though the injury is healing and is not permanent, Chris hasn’t fully recovered and his laryngologist has recommended that Fozzy postpone the first two weeks of the Save The World tour (scheduled to start in Columbus on Sept. 8) in order to facilitate a full recovery as soon as possible," the statement reads.
The shows, which were originally scheduled to take place between Sept. 8 and 19 with No Resolve, GFM and Seventh Day Slumber, have been postponed until the spring of 2023. All tickets will be honored for the new dates. As it stands, Fozzy's next show is set to take place Sept. 29 in Charlotte, N.C. In November, they'll head to Europe with Escape the Fate and Scarlet Rebels, and then Australia and New Zealand with Buckcherry later in the month.
