Every self-respecting metalhead, knows who Udo Dirkschneider is: the frontman of German heavy metal legends ACCEPT, during the period of the band’s classic records (“Breaker”, “Restless And Wild”, “Balls To The Wall”, “Metal Heart”). The legendary singer is coming to Greece for two shows, tonight (18/03/16) in Thessaloniki at Principal Club Theater and tomorrow (19/03/2016) in Athens at Piraeus 117 Academy and we give you 4+1 reasons why you should not miss them!
01. Classic Accept setlist
All the ACCEPT classics one could ever love, sang by the original voice of the band. If you’re in love with UDO’s voice and cannot possibly imagine “Princess Of The Dawn”, “Living For Tonite”, “Breaker”, “Metal Heart” and so on being sang by none other than UDO, a place at the venue is reserved just for you!
02. The last time he’s ever doing that
UDO said that this is the last time he’ll ever play ACCEPT material he sang on. The whole tour is sold-out at almost every date. It’s the last chance for everybody to see UDO performing a full-set of ACCEPT classics, before focusing on his own career which he’s been pursuing for so long.
03. Supporting Act: ANVIL
A criminally underrated and influential band, with lots of difficulties along the way to success. Their documentary “Anvil: The Story Of Anvil” was an important factor in the bands’ growth in popularity from 2008 and on. They’ve never compromised their sound, something that kept them listed as major influences of MEGADETH, METALLICA, ANTHRAX and other bands that got into the innovative playing of Robb Reiner. Whoever has the chance, should be there early to not miss those legends. Canada always delivers the goods!
04. The Venues
Principal Club Theater along with Peiraeus Academy have hosted many great live shows both being characterized by their big capacity and great sound. Perfect choices for such a show!
05. Extra Reason
We guarantee you, both bands crush the stage when they get on it!
