KK’S PRIEST and ACCEPT Announce 2024 North American Tour

Heavy metal fans, prepare for the most electrifying tour of the year! Heavy metal frontrunners KK’S PRIEST – featuring Judas Priest alum and GRAMMY Award winning/nominated musicians K.K. Downing (guitar) and Tim “Ripper” Owens (vocals) – and Teutonic metal originators ACCEPT will join forces this fall 2024 for an unmissable North American tour! Both bands are touring in support of their brand new albums, out now via Napalm Records.

The massive run will begin on August 31 in Los Angeles, CA, visiting a slew of major cities in the USA and Canada – such as Toronto, ON, Montreal, QC, New York, NY and Nashville, TN – before coming to an end in San Francisco, CA on October 7. Tickets go on sale this Thursday, May 9 at 10:00am EDT, so get your tickets quickly before it’s too late – these will go fast.

KK’s PRIEST’s K.K. Downing says:
“It’s time!!! Let the full European metal assault commence, KK’s Priest / Accept. Not since 1983 have we shared the same battleground. From Germany, from the UK, let the Flying Vs clash, let the metal fly! All in the name of defending our beloved heavy metal music, let the people come from all walks of life to witness the battle royal. There is no doubt that we warriors of metal will give every ounce of our energy and our power in order to deliver up our very finest performance. This is a spectacle not to be missed, and this is possibly the one and only time in history for you to witness this iconic duel. Who will be the victor? You will be the judge, let the music begin from early August to early October… The arena awaits!!”

ACCEPT’s Wolf Hoffmann says:
“This tour with KK’s Priest is a dream come true for Accept and for me personally. 
Accept supported Judas Priest back in the early 80s – it was our first ‘real’ international tour and Priest had been a huge influence on us. 
I’m really looking forward to reconnecting with KK on this very special tour. It’s going to be epic! Don’t miss it!”
