Live Back To The Roots- Accepted!

When Udo Dirkschneider decided in 2016 that he wanted to perform only Accept songs in his set for an entire tour he was electing to tackle legacy.  At 65 years old he has nothing left to prove.  His resume includes 10 Accept studio albums and 15 U.D.O studio albums spanning a career going back to the late 1970’s. As to not confuse longtime U.D.O fans for this venture, he decided to just go out with this touring band as “Dirkschneider”.  Only performing songs from his Accept albums for one last time.  He claims these songs will be removed from his set forever only choosing to perform U.D.O songs in the future.  One last definitive statement celebrating his Accept years, what they mean to him with a complete concert of these tracks for the fans one last time. The tour has been a huge success all over the world and sparked a Live 2 CD package in late 2016 “Live Back To The Roots” highlighting these great shows.  Demand became great for a visual companion to this Live package so another show was recorded in Dec 2016 via the Czech Republic and now fans have a 2nd Live 2 CD set with a DVD “Live Back To The Roots-Accepted!”.
