Accept to film Ohio show for possible release
Reformed German metal legends ACCEPT will be recording their Cleveland, Ohio show on October 8 for a possible future live release.
The band will be performing live at the Cleveland Agora with KING'S X and Cleveland's own SHOK PARIS. The show starts at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $25 in advance and available at Clevelandagora.com.
Concert poster art was created exclusively for the band by German design artist Claudia von Bihl.
"If there is any American city being essential in engraving our love for America, it has been Cleveland, Ohio", says Accept guitarist Wolf Hoffmann. "That is where we had the first impression of being Kings In America! I believe any rock band knows if you make it in Cleveland, you make it anywhere. And so we did. We can't wait to be back!”
"I sure believe that Cleveland will be a historic night”, adds band manager Gaby Hoffmann. "Thank you to all of our Cleveland fans who have supported the band over the years. We are looking forward to seeing you again.”
The live recording will be done by Cleveland-based Spectrum Sound, with Tony Alberts engineering. Alberts has engineered live recordings from STARZ, ANVIL, TROUBLE, TRIVIUM, RAVEN, DESTRUCTOR, BREAKER, PILEDRIVER and JAG PANZER, to name a few.
The show will also be filmed by Metal Fanzine's Ken Kitt.
This will be the band's second official live recording in Cleveland. In 1984 on the Balls To The Wall tour, Accept recorded their performance at the Cleveland Agora Ballroom for the syndicated King Biscuit Flower Hour radio program. Over the years the show has become a popular fan favorite. The original broadcast can be heard in its entirety online at Wolfgang's Vault.
Accept, in the midst of their Blood Of The Nations World Tour, will be spending two days in Cleveland. The band will make a visit to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame during the afternoon of October 7 for a private tour and then host a retail in-store signing session on October 8 at The Exchange in Parma Heights, Ohio (6271 Pearl Road) from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Nuclear Blast will provide free Accept posters, pizza and soft drinks. No purchase is necessary to attend. Fans are encouraged to bring their Accept collectibles for the band to sign. Cameras and video are permitted as well. The in-store is being sponsored by the Cleveland College Radio Coalition - WJCU, WCSB, WRUW, WBWC - Metal Fanzine, Pitriff, CVB Design, Spectrum Sound, Nuclear Blast and The Exchange.
