Fozzy quickly became a trending topic early Sunday morning (August 9) for all the wrong reasons. AEW Wrestler and lead singer of the rock band Fozzy, Chris Jericho performed in front of sold out crowd in a venue in Minot, North Dakota.
A photo of Fozzy performing in ND has surfaced and many have giving the band a hard time for the live performance which shows the crowd on hand wearing no mask and no social distancing.
Fozzy’s “Save The World Tour” has once again been postponed until October of 2020. However as noted by Chris Jericho during a live stream Saturday night, some August tour dates were not cancelled.
Despite announcing 181 new cases Sunday morning, North Dakota is still one of the lowest producing states for the COVID-19. As a result Chris Jericho and Fozzy were allowed to perform.
“The reason why the shows have happened is because these states of North Dakota and South Dakota have low COVID cases, less than 1000 in both states, I think Florida had 9000 today alone,” Jericho said via his Saturday night live stream on YouTube.
187 people attended the show on Saturday at The Original Bar and Nightclub. Tickets were on sale for $22 and those who attended had to follow specific guidelines which were outlined via their Facebook page.
- Mask must be worn to enter the venue for the safety of our door staff
- Masks will be available at the door if you don’t have one
- Hand Sanitizer stations will be available throughout the venue
- Please practice personal hygiene while in the venue
- Tables and chairs will be removed from the main floor to be able to ensure social distancing
“The venues are either outside, or they are half capacity. We are sold out tonight in Minot with I think 50% capacity, last night we were sold out in Sioux Falls, SD with 35% capacity,” Jericho explained. “We hand out masks at the door, the temperature checks. We stay on the bus all day, the Fozzy crew and camp have been tested.”
Fozzy had also performed in Iowa on August 6th, which can be seen below as posted by YouTube user @djruden.
