Pioneering German Heavy Metallers ACCEPT made one of their most triumphant carrier comebacks in 2014 with the release of their highly successful fourteenth studio albumBlind Rage. After taking a 15 year hiatus, the band returned with a sensational album that debuted at #1 in Germany and Finland which was the first time in the bands 36 year career. To keep the momentum from the record going, the band toured relentlessly across the world pushing the envelope at every show and keeping true to their roots which has cemented them as one of the pioneers of heavy metal. Before they embark on the next chapter of the band, writing new material, the band accepted invites to play two special US shows. On March 3rd, ACCEPT are heading to Sioux Falls to play at Badlands then make their way to The Arcada Theatre in St Charles, Illinois on March 5th!
“After touring so much, we thought it would be great to have a long break to write songs,” commented guitarist and main songwriter Wolf Hoffman. “But than – we changed our minds and thought – it would be great to do a few shows – just to stay sharp and keep up with the cool dynamics between us! May be – we just need to get hot and sweaty on stage again. See ya all very soon!”
Upon the completion of the US dates, ACCEPT will cross the Atlantic to play in Austria then make their way to South America where they will play in Argentina followed by five dates in Brazil! Don’t miss your chance to watch Accept live in all their glory.

ACCEPT has learned, that without YOU – wherever you are – none of what we accomplish could have happened! That is why we feel honored to be YOUR BAND! Long live METAL! For that we want to thank you…. and for YOU, your loved ones & your friends we wish that all your dreams come true… they did for us! We hope, that you will remember the good times we had together as well as the greatest things the ones who are gone before us, left us with: their music and their spirit and their words, where they let us know, they have been there, they have been going through, they have suffered through and they have laughed through the same, we all endure…. all of us! They are our heroes, because they used their time on earth to leave something behind, something that is larger than life: HOPE!!! Hope, that in all of us may be more than we even can imagine! Not only shallow dreams … but REAL DREAMS and the never ending assurance: they CAN COME TRUE! Knowing that changes become less frightening and joy becomes more joyful and most of all – it become easier to share! The New Year is nothing more than a New Year, we write a new number and we celebrate a new beginning and say good bye to the one that just passed for us – with all the wonderful memories! We are super charged and can’t wait to take you with us to the next level of our journey. We started to write a new album and instead of making one long break, we will take a few breaks in 2016 to charge our batteries. Stay tuned for news and another exciting year!
