Accept have revealed that singer Mark Tornillo is currently suffering from a “virus infection.” As a result, the band’s October 18 show in Vineland, NJ has been cancelled.
The group commented:
As you might have heard, we had to modify our show in Toronto, Canada on Oct. 16th.
Our singer Mark had developed severe vocal strain over the last week due to a virus infection (not Covid!).
Being the trooper that he is, he pushed through three shows in a row, but the doctors now insist he take a break , otherwise the entire rest of the tour would be in jeopardy, as would his voice and health.
This morning, with the heaviest of hearts we had to make the difficult decision to call off the concert on Oct. 18th in Vineland, NJ.
This is so Mark has time to rest and recover, and we can make sure we can finish the rest of the tour in full force.
We understand the disappointment for our fans in Vineland, and we share this too.
We apologise from the bottom of our hearts.
We strive to put on the best show possible, for every show and want to give you all we can.
Thank you for understanding, and we’ll see you soon at a later date!
