Biography

Legends come in all shapes and sizes and while Udo Dirkschneider is not the tallest frontman around, he is easily one of the throatiest. After many years as the frontman of German heavy metal band Accept, he eventually left to build an equally successful solo career under the name U.D.O. For years, U.D.O.’s live set included some of the biggest Accept classics. However, in the summer of 2015, the diminutive singer unfolded plans for an Accept farewell tour under the moniker Dirkschneider, featuring a set with nothing but Accept classics; in future, the set list will consist solely of solo material. Get ready to go balls to the wall one final time as Dirkschneider takes a last trip down memory lane. (Text: Stef Maes / Translation: Nick Devos)
