Udo Dirkschneider (vocals)
Farewell To Accept: Metal Icon, Udo Dirkschneider is planning a special tour in which he will perform Accept songs one last time before he closes the chapter for good.
Wacken – At a press conference in the VIP tent of Wacken Open Air, legendary metal singer, Udo Dirkschneider dropped some bombshell news on all those in attendance: the 62 year old cult musician announced his definitive farewell to the Accept song library. On a special tour beginning in 2016, he will perform songs by Accept one last time before he retires them for good. It will be a night of epic proportions.
During this Accept farewell tour, he will only showcase songs from the Udo era of the band. The German rock staple will close a huge chapter of music history forever. In the early 80´s, the Solingen-raised singer skyrocketed to worldwide acclaim with the band Accept and with his unmistakeable voice he had several hits such as Balls To The Wall and Princess of the Dawn. Now he has announced that he will perform these much loved hits on this special tour one more time before he removes them from the set list forever.
„I still love singing these songs live,“ Dirkschneider says. „The songs still are an important part of my catalog and still suit my voice very well. But at some point in your life, it´s just time to close the chapter. There has been so much talk and speculation about Accept, so I just want to give my last definitive musical statement about it and give my fans a chance to see me perform a complete concert of these songs one last time on stage.“
After this tour, Udo will only play songs from his extensive library of U.D.O. material. After being kicked out of Accept in the late 80´s, he garnered many classic hits with his new band in a long and successful career, such as Animal House, Timebomb, and Man and Machine. „There is enough high quality material to fill a two hour set with no problem,“ says Dirkschneider. „U.D.O. has been the band where I belong for 18 years and I want to pay tribute to them from now on.“
The musician will NOT perform this farewell tour under the name U.D.O. but simply as Dirkschneider.
