The former WWE and AEW world champ is on tour with his band Fozzy
Y2J, 51, are on a 12-date ‘Save The World’ tour of the UK and were scheduled to perform at the Swansea Sin City venue in Wales on Friday.
Now that show has been nixed after the venue confirmed late on Thursday that the Ayatollah of Rock ‘n Rolla had been taken to hospital with a non-Covid 19 health issue.
The tweet said: “Chris was checked into Hospital by doctors, with a non Covid related, treatable health issue.
“Regrettably the show on Friday in Swansea is cancelled and all tickets will be refunded. Will have updates on Saturday’s show in Nottingham and Sunday’s show in London as soon as possible.”
Lead singer Jericho and his band had already performed a number of shows such as Newcastle and last played in Bournemouth on Tuesday.
They were then due to finish the trip on Saturday in Nottingham followed by a gig in London on Sunday.
There has been no official word on what Jericho’s non-Covid health issue is yet from the WWE legend himself or AEW.
Jericho has been sharing plenty of snaps from his trip on social media and he even posted a shot of him and the band outside the Hard Rock Cafe Oxford Street in London on Thursday.
He has also been tweeting, but has made no reference to his condition at the time of writing.
Due to the tour, AEW first-ever world champ Jericho has not appeared live on the company’s flagship Dynamite show since December 1.
He was attacked backstage by 2point0 and Daniel Garcia and injured as part of the storyline to write him off the show while he went on tour.
