Video footage and setlist of Accept’s first gig with temporary singer Jason McMaster

History was made two nights ago when Dangerous Toys and Dirty Looks frontman Jason McMaster handled the lead vocals for German metal rockers Accept during the latter’s gig at Penn’s Peak in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA.

McMaster is temporarily replacing Accept singer Mark Tornillo who has been sidelined with a viral infection. When Accept found out that Tornillo was unable to perform live during their North American tour, they first elected to perform in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on October 16, 2022 without a lead vocalist and reportedly with their drummer Christopher Williams and bassist Martin Motnik handling the singing. Accept’s next gig two nights later (on October 18, 2022) at the Landis Theatre in Vineland, New Jersey, USA was cancelled but the band has since announced that McMaster will sub in for Tornillo during the current tour until the latter is ready to perform again.

Accept’s setlist on Oct. 20, 2022 (as per setlist.fm):
01. Zombie Apocalypse
02. Restless And Wild
03. Living For Tonite
04. London Leatherboys
05. Overnight Sensation

The following message was posted on Accept‘s Facebook page back on October 20, 2022 (with slight edits):

“Update for Accept show in Penns Peak 20th October

Accept announce Jason McMaster from Dangerous Toys and Watch Tower, to rock the stage with them tonight!!

As Mark is still on the road to recovery, he has been advised to rest a little more before hitting the stage for the remainder of the current US tour. ( We’ve sent him all the soup on earth 😉)

However, Accept‘s friend and outrageously brilliant Metal/ Rock singer, Jason McMaster, has been awesome enough to step in until Mark is back….for what will now be a one of a kind, unique Accept show!

History in the making!!

Jason is extremely familiar with Accept‘s vintage material, is a world class lead singer with spectacular stage presence and the guys are totally fired up to give you a sensational performance!

See you there!!

It’s gonna be a unique and thrilling show!

We thank you again for all the kind wishes regarding Mark‘s health. He is very grateful and says they help tremendously!”
