Accept have postponed their headlining European tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. The trek will now take place in 2023 with new dates set to be announced soon.
Guitarist Wolf Hoffmann commented:
“As much as we want to, the current COVID situation just doesn’t allow us to go forward with this 2022 tour. 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 of 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. The tour is confirmed for 2023 and tickets remain valid.”
In other news, Accept have also released a digital live single for their song “The Undertaker.” You can check that out below. Furthermore, Nuclear Blast will also be releasing a silver limited edition vinyl pressing of the band’s latest album “Too Mean To Die” on February 18.
