Chris Jericho and his band Fozzy's played at the Sturgis Rally has now been linked to 250,000 COVID-19 cases.
Chris Jericho and his band Fozzy were amid plenty of controversy for participating in the Sturgis Rally during the pandemic, and now a new estimation proves the outrage justified.
Jericho's band, Fozzy, performed at the famous bike rally in August, which has now been linked to 250,000 COVID-19 cases worldwide. They played a gig at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota during which there were no masks or social distancing.
At the time, he ensured people that protocols were being followed to limit the spread of the virus. While those in attendance may have had their temperatures checked, photos and videos show there were no social distancing measures in place.
Chris Jericho couldn’t even show the empathy
He took to Twitter to dismiss the number, stating only seven cases exist out of 450,000 people: "7 cases...out of 450,000 people????".
What will do the families who have had to suffer as a result of the spread of COVID-19 from this concert that should have never taken place?

- Happenstance (2002)
- All That Remains (2005)
- Chasing the Grail (2010)
- Sin and Bones (2012)
- Do You Wanna Start a War (2014)
- Judas (2017)
FOZZY has so many great songs written for the new LP that it was very difficult to pick the singles. Last month, FOZZY announced the rescheduled "Save The World" tour dates, starting October 3 in Dallas, Texas and ending on November 22 in Nashville, Tennessee.
Fozzy is an American heavy metal band formed in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1999 by lead singer Chris Jericho, lead guitarist Rich Ward and drummer Frank Fontsere, who are the longest serving members of the band and have appeared on all band's releases, although Fontsere left in 2005 and rejoined in 2009. The band's current lineup consists of Jericho, Ward, Fontsere, rhythm guitarist Billy Grey and bassist Randy Drake. Jericho has characterized the band by saying, "If Metallica and Journey had a bastard child, it would be Fozzy." As of October 2017, the band has released seven studio albums and one live album. Their first two albums consist of primarily cover songs with some original material, while their albums since have made original material the primary focus.
The band Fozzy has really always been about one thing: having fun. What started out for guitarist Rich Ward as a weekend cover band soon became an internationally signed act with the biggest star in professional wrestling, Chris Jericho, as its lead singer. Their first few releases still had Fozzy playing covers but with adopted stage names and a backstory written for the movies.
