Despite once saying he'd never return to Poughkeepsie again, former WWE and current AEW wrestling superstar Chris Jericho is coming back to Poughkeepsie this Sunday, April 17 (Easter Sunday) when his band Fozzy makes a return to The Chance.

A Little About Fozzy

Heavy Metal band Fozzy was formed out of Atlanta, Georgia in 1999 by lead singer Chris Jericho and guitarist Rich Ward. The band has released seven studio albums over the years. Jericho once described the band to Wrestling Voice Radio, as "If Metallica and Journey had a bastard child, it would be Fozzy." Being a big fan of 80's metal, I can appreciate the band Fozzy and their sound. Their first couple albums featured covers from many favorites like Dio, Krokus, Twisted Sister, Iron Maiden, Motley Crue, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Scorpions, W.A.S.P., and Accept. The band's last album Judas was released on Century Media Records back in 2017.

Chris Jericho has been known to hang out after the show from time to time, so you may get an opportunity to chill with the rock n wrestling legend.
