In 2014 when asked if he had a favourite Football team, Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho answered “West Ham!” due to his love for fellow Hammer Steve Harris and Iron Maiden. In 2017 the club tweeted out a video of Goalkeeper Darren Randolph performing the Walls Of Jericho on star Striker Michail Antonio, which Chris saw and gave his seal of approval. Now in 2022, Chris had the oppurtunity to sit down with West Ham United cult hero Carlton Cole, at the famous West Ham pub The Carpenters Arms, for the very first episode the clubs new series ‘Carlton Up The Carpenters’. The pair discussed Chris’s long standing affinity with West Ham United, his love for Iron Maiden and Fozzy’s upcoming UK tour. They were even joined by Antonio and Randolph, to follow up on their recreation of Jericho’s famous wrestling move. Safe to say, Chris Jericho is now a fully fledged member of the West Ham family and he may even get himself to a game, when Fozzy return to the UK in November.

Fozzy’sSave the World Tour begins in Manchester on 4 November and calls through Birmingham, Nottingham, Dublin, Belfast, Swansea, Bournemouth, Bristol, Glasgow and finishes in London on 14 November.  You can buy tickets and meet the band VIP packages from HERE.

“After celebrating our most successful UK Tour EVER back in December…12 out of 12 SOLD OUT shows…we thought “how can we top this?” Chris Jericho says. “Well after much brainstorming and vodka drinking, we think we figured out a way….by booking our BIGGEST UK Tour EVER!!  We are teaming up with our bros in Escape The Fate to return to the magical kingdom that has always housed Fozzy’s largest and loudest fanbase, to Save The World once again and blow the roof off of the biggest venues we’ve ever played!  So come join us and sing Judas and I Still Burn louder than Lemmy, when we return to your amazing shores this November!”
