Chris Jericho isn’t just a talented in-ring performer, he is also the lead singer for Fozzy, whom he often tours with regularly when he isn’t needed in the ring.
Last month, Fozzy performed as part of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota alongside a number of notable musical acts.
Despite taking all of the necessary precautions ahead of the rally, the show is now being linked with a number of positive COVID-19 cases.
The case count has continued to climb over the past month and it was reported by Andrew Friedson who is the Professor of economics at the University of Colorado Denver that that number has now reached a quarter of a million.
Jericho himself has already lashed out at fans who have commented on the fact that his band has been wrapped up in this negative media attention.
Jericho also noted during an appearance on Saturday Night Special last month that the case numbers were much lower ahead of the tour.
“We actually did four shows this week, and the reason for that is we had our ‘Save the World Tour,’ which was originally scheduled for April and May, but it got postponed to July and August, then got postponed to October and November.”
“Four shows remained in August, and I was like ‘How?’ The shows are in South Dakota, and North Dakota, and we have one in Fort Madison, Iowa, which is right near the border of South Dakota. … The reason why the shows have happened is because these states of North Dakota and South Dakota have low COVID cases, less than 1,000 in both states, I think Florida had 9,000 today alone.”
