Saxon and Fozzy Team Up for Dates in Texas for North American 2013 Fall Tour
British metal legends Saxon have just announced a month-long North American tour with Fozzy and Halcyon Way. The 'Sacrifice and Sin Tour' will kick off on Sept. 12 in Patchogue, N.Y. and conclude in Vancouver, Canada, with dates slated for San Antonio and Houston.
Saxon are currently coming off the release of their 20th studio album, 'Sacrifice.' The band is still going strong after nearly four decades and Saxon are aiming to keep that legendary career going strong.
"So far, the Sacrifice World Tour has taken us from the Bahamas to South America and back to Europe for the festival season," says Saxon's Biff Byford. "Now it is time for us to return to North America for a series of dates with the one and only Fozzy. We have been friends with Chris Jericho for years so there has never been a better time to hook up with Fozzy for a tour that will take us from the east coast to the west coast and finally winding up in the Great White North."
Fozzy vocalist Chris Jericho also shared his excitement about the upcoming string of dates. "After our highly successful US tour last summer on Uproar, we've been chomping at the bit for the right opportunity to return to North America...and now it has arrived!" says Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho. "To tour with the legendary Saxon is a metal dream come true and the perfect way to satisfy all of our amazing fans in the US and Canada and to make tons of new ones in the process. Get ready for Sacrifice and Sin...we're gonna tear your heads off and leave u screaming Fozzy, Fozzy, Fozzy!!"
