ACCEPT would like to thank Herman Frank & Stefan Schwarzmann for being with us these last 4 + years, for making themselves available whenever needed and for rocking their asses off! We and the fans all knew that they had their own careers and that eventually we would run into scheduling and other conflicts beyond our control. Herman and Stefan are now ready to take on the world, with their own band “PANZER”, a Nuclear Blast Record deal under their belts and a new album!
We are parting as friends and wish them nothing but success!
We ourselves are getting ready for 2015 – another year of heavy touring! We would like to say thanks again to our fans around the world for their huge support and for the fantastic year 2014!
The Blind Rage World Tour continues in 2015 – see below – stay tuned for more dates!
ACCEPT Renew & Expand a Worldwide BOOKING DEAL with CONTINENTAL CONCERTS in Germany
Gerald Wilkes, longtime business partner of Gaby Hoffmann, is expanding his European Deal with ACCEPT and will be the worldwide Booking Agent as of January 1st 2015.
Gaby Hoffmann: “We have a very close relationship with Gerald and many successful tours, specially the BLIND RAGE World Tour in 2014, and growing logistic demands present a need for us to fasten the seat belts and go into the next round. We believe all touring business in one hand will make it more efficient for all of us and for all our partners around the world. The new tour schedule with even more countries, for instance AUSTRALIA, where ACCEPT opened a brand new market for themselves in 2014, started with sold out shows and needs special attention. Concerts in Asia, Africa, Middle East etc are on the menu and we need a strong partner with international connections to open more markets for us.”
Gerald Wilkes: “CONTINENTAL CONCERTS and I are really proud about expanding our successful relationship with ACCEPT! This is a big step for us and we believe that the band is stronger than ever and that there are still a lot of territories that ACCEPT will conquer in the future. I have been working with the band for so many years and it feels great to have such a close continuous relationship for such a long time.”
