Band shaken but luckily no serious injuries
London show on July 17, 2011 still on

 FOZZY, the band featuring WWE wrestling superstar CHRIS JERICHO and Stuck Mojo mastermind RICH WARD were involved in a collision in Germany yesterday as their tour bus collided with a barricade.

The band, who were on their way to Aarhus, Denmark after setting Sonisphere alight were luckily not seriously injured.

FOZZY’s bus was travelling to Denmark from Germany when at approx. 5:30am Tuesday morning, local time; the bus collided with a construction barricade. The front left tire of the bus drove up the barricade like a ramp, and went into a 50 foot skid on 2 wheels before coming to a halt. In the crash, the driver’s door was ripped completely off its hinges, the frontand side windshields were smashed, the undercarriage was destroyed, and the impact threw the band and crew out of their bunks. The damage to the bus forced FOZZY to cancel their show that evening in Aarhus, Denmark at the Voxhall with Anthrax. The band’s lead singer, Chris Jericho, was not involved in the crash, as he was travelling on the Anthrax bus.

Chris stated that “all of us in the Fozzy family are relieved and blessed that nobody was seriously hurt in the accident. What makes things even crazier is that I was discussing the bus crash that took the life of my hero, Metallica’s Cliff Burton, with the Anthrax guys at roughly the same time the members of my own band were experiencing almost the same thing.”

Officials are closely monitoring minor injuries sustained by two of the band members as the tour is scheduled to continue tonight (Wednesday) in Hamburg, Germany.

“The show must go on and we are happy that even though some of us are shaken up, our show in Hamburg will take place. We dodged a huge bullet last night for sure though,” Jericho said.

FOZZY will end their eventful tour in London on Sunday:
