The Recent Controversial Fozzy Concert May Be The Cause Of 250,000 New Cases Of Covid-19
Last month, Fozzy; Chris Jericho’s band had a concert that was part of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota alongside other bands and performers. The show did follow guidelines, but it turns out the originally thought 7 out of 450,000 people at the show had become ill with Covid-19 has now grown to 250,000 cases. Over the last month this has now been reported by Andrew Friedson who is the Professor of Economics at the University of Colorado Denver. It was reported originally that there weren’t as many cases at the time the show took place. That being said, there isn’t much doubt that fans would probably travel from far to see the show making the statement pretty pointless.
There’s still no word from Chris Jericho
At the time when fan backlash started closer to the time the show took place, Jericho did have a statement on the Saturday Night Special last month.
“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.”
There has been no recent statement from Chris Jericho after this has been reported but we will keep you updated on the story as it processes.
