Chris Jericho was recently hospitalized during an overseas tour with his band, Fozzy. The Ayatollah of Rock and Rollah was set to play in Swansea, Wales when the venue unexpectedly announced that Jericho had been hospitalized with a non-COVID condition and the show had to be cancelled. Fans were disappointed, but Le Champion’s health did and should come first.

The following day, Jericho gave a statement on his condition. He said he was feeling good and was being held overnight for observation. On the afternoon of December 10, 2021, the band’s official Twitter account announced that Fozzy’s next scheduled show in Nottingham, England was also cancelled.

“We are very sorry, but due to circumstances beyond our control, Fozzy will not be able to perform in Nottingham tomorrow (Dec 11). We promise to return as soon as possible!”

Whether this had to do with Jericho’s medical issue was not mentioned. Although it can be assumed, a lot can happen to a touring band. If he was kept overnight in the hospital, Jericho might have just needed a day of rest. The band has promised to return as soon as they can.


Fozzy has been an active band since their formation in 1999. Jericho joined briefly thereafter and became Fozzy’s front man. He has used their music for a wrestling them frequently. The band’s song “Judas” has become incredibly popular due to its use in Chris Jericho’s feud with MJF and has become popular as an AEW fan sing-along.

Jericho says he’s feeling good, so there is likely nothing to worry about. It’s a bummer for Fozzy fans in the UK, who rarely get a chance to see the band. The important part is that Chris Jericho takes all the time he needs to recover and get well.
