German Band Invades Cleveland, Hands Out Free Pizza

Posted By on Thu, Oct 7, 2010 at 9:00 AM

German metal legends Accept will be all over Cleveland tomorrow. And some of it may become part of the band’s permanent record.

Following a 6 p.m. in-store appearance at the Parma Heights Exchange, the Teutonic terror will record their concert at the Agora Theater for possible use as a live release.

"If there is any American city being essential in engraving our love for America, it has been Cleveland," guitarist Wolf Hoffmann said in a statement. "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!"

You can read more praise of our great city here.

The band is riding high with the new Blood of the Nations album, an unlikely return to form after former TT Quick frontman Mark Tornillo stepped in as vocalist.

The in-store will run until 7 p.m.

The band’s label, Nuclear Blast, will provide free posters, pizza, and soda. Fans are welcome to bring cameras and other Accept items.

King’s X and Shok Paris will open the show. Doors 8 p.m. Tickets are $25. —D.X. Ferris
