The first-ever concert by the new lineup of ACCEPT — which is scheduled to take place on May 8 at the 750-capacity New York City's Gramercy Theatre — has officially sold out.
Following the New York City show, ACCEPT will head to Europe to perform special gigs in carefully handpicked venues in various European capitals.
ACCEPT has chosen to play these publicity concerts in small, intimate settings to get close to its longtime fans.
Regarding Tornillo's addition to ACCEPT, Hoffmann previously said, "It all happened in minutes. Peter and I were working on some tunes in a studio in New Jersey. Somebody suggested we give this guy Mark a call to see if he would join us on vocals. So when he arrived we started jamming on some old ACCEPT tunes — just for fun. As soon as Mark started singing we looked at each other and realized the impossible just happened: we found a new voice for ACCEPT! The timing could not have been better! Now or never... We are re-energized and excited..."
