Herman Frank hurt during stage fall!

Herman Frank hurt during stage fall! - 2011-05-10

2011-05-10 - ACCEPT were forced to play as a four-piece during their concert in Houston, Texas this past Saturday, May 7 after the band’s guitarist, Herman Frank, suffered broken ribs and a punctured lung in a stage fall the previous night in San Antonio. Herman fell backwards during the song “Bulletproof” and will miss the remaining dates of ACCEPT’s “Blood of the Nations” Tour 2011. Of course, the band has done this before. ACCEPT performed and toured as a four-piece during the 1990s as well, and the Houston show was a perfect example that the four of them (Wolf, Peter, Mark and Stefan Schwarzmann) can still blow the roof off and concert hall!

Peter Baltes explains: “Unfortunately, Herman had an accident during last night’s show in San Antonio. He tripped and landed hard on his back. Even though he managed to finish the show, his pain became unbearable as we arrived in Houston. He was taken to the emergency room, where the doctors discovered four broken ribs and a punctured lung. He will remain at the hospital for now. Considering his condition, his spirit is great, and we all need to give our support to him as he recovers from his injuries. In the meantime, the band will continue the tour, and Herman will rejoin us as soon as he is all healed up and good to go.” The band is now on their way to South America for the final leg of the tour.

Of course, www.acceptworldwide.com will keep you updated on Herman’s condition. We all wish him all the best and a quick recovery!
