FINALLY! After a year-long virus-induced break, the time has come: ACCEPT will start their long-awaited “Too Mean To Die” tour on 15 January 2022 in Oberhausen (Turbinenhalle). “Too mean to die” – rarely has a tour title been more fitting!
“It’s been a tough year because we really wanted to get on stage but couldn’t for the reasons we all know,” explains ACCEPT mastermind Wolf Hoffmann. “Anyway, now the time of suffering has come to an end. And now only one thing counts: ACCEPT and our fans are too mean to die – we won’t let them get us down and rock together in 2022.“
From mid-January to the end of February, the metal Teutons will be touring across Europe, playing 32 gigs in 16 countries, ten of which will be in Germany.
ACCEPT will be joined by a mega special guest: MOTÖRHEAD guitarist Phil Campbell & The Bastard Sons!
Also in their luggage: 2-3 songs from their current album “Too Mean To Die”, which shot into the German charts at No. 2 eight months ago and reached Top 10 positions in several tour countries.
Hoffmann: “The album is really strong. And the selected tracks absolutely deserve to finally be brought to the live stage and played in front of the ACCEPT fans. We are already very excited to see which of the new songs will be celebrated the most by the audience.“
The rest of ACCEPT‘s 2022 set is beyond reproach as far as partying goes! Fans can look forward to classics like ‘Balls To The Wall’, ‘Princess Of The Dawn’, ‘Fast As A Shark’ and many, many more.
By the way: ACCEPT will rock Europe for the first time with their complete “guitar army” – consisting of Wolf Hoffmann, Uwe Lulis and “newcomer” Philip Shouse! “That’s already a lot of fun,” Hoffmann is pleased to say, “the US fans really liked it on our 2021 tour, anyway.“
And ACCEPT shouter Mark Tornillo explains, “After the cruel years 2020 & 2021 for all of us worldwide, we are happy that we can finally present our new album live to the fans in Europe. We are very excited about the reactions. And we’re looking forward to finally being back on stage in front of you soon and looking into your smiling faces as we rock out together with you.“
In advance, all ACCEPT fans can already look forward to November 5th – the day the band will release the digital live single “The Undertaker” via Nuclear Blast – a fine foretaste of the European tour in January/February 2022!
