Fozzy Frontman to Host First-Ever Loudwire Music Awards Ceremony

Jul 212017

Lead vocalist Chris Jericho from Monster Energy’s own Fozzy is set to be the MC for the first-ever live Loudwire Music Awards this fall. The inaugural event will be held at the Novo Theater in downtown Los Angeles on October 24. Though Loudwire has had this award “ceremony” for some time now, it is finally brought to earth instead of just online. The concept has not changed but the way fans see it has changed immensely. Now you can experience it in real life, seeing and hearing celebrities give speeches and great rock and metal artists perform on stage. Seeing it at a real venue makes all the difference and makes the ceremony more meaningful and exciting, especially when Chris Jericho is the MC and there is a concert involved.

It will be an electric night, considering Jericho’s deep experience in the entertainment industry. Jericho is one of the most well-rounded humans on the planet. He is a WWE superstar, rockstar, songwriter, author, and actor. Excelling at all of these, he has made them into occupations because of his hard work and personality, among other reasons. Loudwire is pleased to have him as the host of their first live awards ceremony, so expectations are high. He will undoubtedly both silence the crowd and make them burst with laughter, but that’s all in a night’s work.


The driving force behind the ceremony is the power of the fanbase. Fans who vote may get a chance to watch their favorite artists be nominated or even win one (or multiple) awards. Literally every vote counts, and you can support the group you adore in one of the most direct and influential ways possible. Last year, there were 17 different catagories over both rock and metal genres, so get out there and vote! You can start casting votes on August 15 so mark your calendars.
