World Wrestling Entertainment’s Chris Jericho has been away from the ring, but that’s because he’s been on tour promoting his band’s new album.
Fozzy comes to Fort Lauderdale’s Culture Room, 3045 North Federal Highway, at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, December 10. The band will travel with Texas Hippie Coalition and Shaman Harvest.
The band’s new album “Do you wanna start a war” features the top hit “Lights Go Out”. The Roman Show spoke to Jericho prior to his show.
“Our last album came out two years ago it went very well for us,” he said in a phone interview. “We had momentum so the best thing for us was to make another record. We wanted to make another record that wasn’t trendy.”
It was released in July. Fozzy has six albums recorded, since it started back in 1999. The album debuted in the top 50 on Billboard. “Lights go out” is in the top 20 in Billboard.
Jericho said fans music and wrestling alike can expect to jam at the Fozzy show.
“It is made to have fun,” he said. “It was made for people to jump and down.”
The Canadian rocker and wrestler said he is living two dreams he wanted to accomplish since he was a kid.
“When I was a kid I wanted to be a wrestler and a rock star,” he said. “Some told me I couldn’t do it, but went ahead and didn’t anyway.”
Listen to the band’s lyric and you might find something inspirational.
“We believe in the positive things instead of the negatives,” he said.
