"From 'Judas' going gold with 500,000 units sold, to 'I Still Burn' being the fastest charting song in Fozztory, to the 'Save The World' tour being our most successful run ever, we decided to extend the celebration and do another HUGE run through North America starting in September! So come celebrate 'Boombox' (which critics are calling our best album ever),the power of rock 'n' roll and the magic of FOZZY LIVE with us again this fall! And bring your party hats…you're gonna need em!"
