ACCEPT: Quality Footage Of SAUNA OPEN AIR Performance

Quality fan-filmed video footage of ACCEPT's June 11, 2011 performance at the Sauna Open Air festival in Tampere, Finland can be viewed below.

ACCEPT is continuing to tour as a four-piece after the band's guitarist, Herman Frank suffered broken ribs and a punctured lung in a stage fall on May 6 in San Antonio. Bassist Peter Baltes states, "Herman will rejoin us as soon as he is all healed up and good to go."

ACCEPT's latest album, "Blood Of The Nations", was released in North America on September 14, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records. Recorded at Backstage Studio in Derbyshire, England with acclaimed British producer and SABBAT guitarist Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, EXODUS, ARCH ENEMY, MASTERPLAN), the CD marks the debut of the band's latest addition, vocalist Mark Tornillo (ex-TT QUICK).

ACCEPT performed its classic 1982 album "Restless And Wild" in its entirety including such trend-setting gems as "Fast As A Shark", "Restless & Wild" and "Princess Of The Dawn" on January 25 at Z7 in Pratteln, Switzerland. These classic songs were supplemented with several new songs from their latest album, "Blood Of The Nations".

ACCEPT kicked off its massive "Blood Of The Nations 2011 Tour" of Europe on January 14. The shows in Osnabrck, Bad Arolsen and Antwerp were packed with passionate metal-loving fans. The two-hour-plus performance pummeled the fans with classics like "Balls To The Wall", "Metal Heart" and the immortal "Princess Of the Dawn", completed with the pedal-to-the-metal bombast of ACCEPT's new hits "Teutonic Terror" and "The Abyss".
