ACCEPT – Live at Ice Hall, Helsinki

March 14th, 2017

ICE HALL, HELSINKI

24.02 2017

REVIEW AND LIVE PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA

The German metal veterans Accept returned to Finland once again, this time as “a special guest” for Sabaton. The concert was held at the Old Ice Hall of Helsinki, and the venue was completely sold out with approximately 7000 people in the crowd. The band doesn’t have a new studio album to promote, but they just released their first live album, RESTLESS AND LIVE, in January 2017. Maybe this tour is more or less an escape from the studio tour since the band is currently working on its next record which is coming out sometime in the fall. But on the other hand, touring with bands like Sabaton surely helps older groups reach a lot of potential new fans who are not familiar with the legends.

SCORPIONS with very special guests ACCEPT: Live at Hartwall Arena, Helsinki

December 22nd, 2013
Accept & Scorpions

HARTWALL ARENA, HELSINKI

11’th of November 2013

REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA

German bands Scorpions and Accept made history by appearing together for the first time in their decades-long careers. Having these two legendary bands performing at the same event sounds like a brilliant idea and the audience seems to agree, as the Helsinki gig sold comfortably over 9000 tickets. Accept have been enjoying great success since their latest re-union, or “the rebirth”, which took place in 2009. The renewed line-up consists of founding members guitarist Wolf Hoffman and bassist Peter Baltes, drummer Stefan Schwarfmann who’s been on/off member of Accept since the 90’s, rhythm guitarist Herman Frank (Victory) who played in Accept during BALLS TO THE WALL era in the 80’s and vocalist Mark Tornillo (ex-T.T Quick) who has replaced the original singer Udo Dirkschneider. Their latest two releases BLOOD OF THE NATIONS (2010) and STALINGRAD (2012) both present a hungry band which wants to go strongly ahead and not live in the past. Accept is one of the most successful German metal bands ever but the Scorpions is one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time. The band was formed in in 1965 by Klaus Meine and Rudolf Schenker and to this day the band has released 17 studio, 6 live and several collection albums which altogether have reached sales of 75 over million copies worldwide. In January of 2010, the band announced their intentions for STING IN THE TAIL to be their last album, with the tour supporting it being their final tour. But during the tour Scorpions changed their minds and here we are, more than three years later, witnessing the first Scorpions show in Helsinki since 2004. But before that it’s time to check out of the mighty Accept…
