Fozzy's Spotlight on America Tour envades The Eclectic Room
Fozzy with special guests Seventh Day Slumber, Magdalene Rose and The Nocturnal Affair rolled into Angola, Indiana at the Eclectic Room with their Spotlight On North America Tour on Saturday October 21, 2023. There was “Nowhere to Run” as a line of fans gathered in front of the venue before the doors were opened. The light drizzle did not scare the crowd away from wanting to be one of the first into the building.
The Nocturnal Affair got things started for the night. Hailing from fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada, they brought their very unique sound to the stage. The band has an alternative rock vibe with undertones of industrial and dark rock. Ending on a fun note, they played the 1993 hit by Haddaway, What is Love!
Hitting the stage next was Magdalene Rose. The lead vocalist Maggie, is formerly of the all sister band GFM. Maggie leads the band with an extremely high energy and amazing vocals that can go from screaming to melodic and back again. The band has a heavy vibe and awesome breakdowns.
The final opening band of the night, Seventh Day Slumber, made a quick transition after Magdalene Rose, as they share the same drummer and guitarist. SDS is a rock band based out of Nashville, TN. They have been going strong in the rock scene for over 20 years. Lead vocalist Joseph Rojas speaks of a message of overcoming life’s adversity during their set, and shares a story of hope.
The crowd was ready to rock the rest of the night with Fozzy- as front man Chris Jericho welcomed their fans holding up a red solo cup to kick off their set. Chris was decked out in a cheetah print studded jacket and his custom Fozzy shoes. It’s always fun to see what outfits he wears on tour as they are always unique. Fozzy is one of the most talented and entertaining bands to watch-they love their fans and are there to not only play some great rock tunes, but they are there to show you a good time and are always successful in doing so. With Rich Ward aka The Duke on guitar and dancing around the stage, the amazing Grant Brooks on the drum kit, Billy Gray also on guitar and PJ Farley rocking the bass, you will have a blast at a Fozzy show, that is a guarantee.
