I've been a huge Udo Dirkschneider fan since I saw the german band Accept a couple times back in the eighties, opening for Kiss and for Iron Maiden. The band U.D.O. has been around since 1987 (restarted twice following Accept reunions). They are playing 9 U.S. shows (and 3 in Canada) and I will be at the one on Wednesday in Janesville, Wisconsin. I knew they were coming over for a short tour but I was not going to drive for hours, especially in the middle of the week. Dates and venues have been changing a bit lately, the show I'm going to was actually scheduled next door in Verona for a while, but I can't argue with less than an hour drive to Janesville. After all, I may never get another chance to see one of my favorite metal singers. My next LLP post may be the video I take on Wednesday night!
Here is U.D.O. playing 'Vendetta' last night in New York City.
Bonus video of 'Balls To The Wall' from the same show after the break!
