Accept were getting ready to tour mainland Europe in January 2022, but unfortunately virus related circumstances are not allowing the dates to go ahead as planned. Against all expectations and hopes, the legendary band have had to postpone these dates until January/February 2023.
“As much as we want to, the current Covid situation just doesn’t allow us to go forward with this 2022 tour”, explained Accept guitarist Wolf Hoffmann. “It’s a super tough call, but we have no choice but to postpone once again. We wanted to play this tour badly. We had a killer setlist prepared with lots of new songs from the Too Mean to Die album. I’m very sorry for the fans and of course everybody in the band is very disappointed. But hey, life goes on… Please stay safe, stay metal and stay “too mean to die”! We’ll see you soonest!”
Promoter Gerald Wilkes from Continental Concerts added: “The Accept tour was planned through a total of 16 countries with very different regional infection situations, which are currently changing very quickly and therefore are incalculable for all involved. The legal requirements vary from country to country – even often from city to city. It all looked so promising a few months ago, but the situation right now simply doesn’t allow it!”
As a (small) consolation, Accept are serving their fans a digital live single for The Undertaker which is out now.
Accept and Nuclear Blast have also announced that another limited edition version of the hit album Too Mean To Die will be released on silver vinyl (2 LP) on 18th February 2022. 750 copies worldwide. Pre-Order is available now!
Accept have secured venues for 2023, and will be announcing the new dates very soon. Gerald Wilkes adds: “The tour is confirmed for 2023 and tickets remain valid.”
