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.”
Since their highly anticipated shows for the 80,000 metal heads in WACKEN,Germany and the 750,000 festival fans in WOODSTOCK, Poland in August it can be said, that the European media has picked up on the impressive, convincing, powerful and very energetic performance of ACCEPT. They nailed it and the buzz is out! The band is on a run and they can proudly claim they are going somewhere: Sold out shows either way before or at the day of the show. Sold out shows on the 2014 BLIND RAGE World Tour include:
MELBOURNE (AUS), NEW YORK (US), COPENHAGEN (DEN), LINKOEPING (SE), TORNIO (FIN), TAMPERE (FIN), PAMPLONA (ESP), STOCKHOLM (SE), HAMBURG (DE) and ERFURT (DE)
And more to come! PARIS, MUNICH, BERLIN, COLOGNE & FILDERSTADT all need to be watched, if you want to go get your tickets NOW!
With their BLIND RAGE album released in August 2014 and chart entries from #1 in GERMANY and FINLAND to top 100 in 25 countries around the globe ACCEPT celebrate the most dramatic success of their career. ACCEPT’s place as one of the historic bands who have inspired generations of musicians and as one of the well deserved and proven TOP LIVE ACTS in recent times. You can take them to the bank and you can be sure they will not show any signs of slowing down as Wolf Hoffmann and Peter Baltes, crowned by their mighty vocalist Mark Tornillo, are bringing their powerful performance to the max, leaving exhausted, but very happy fans behind and off to the next show.
