Original Accept frontman Udo Dirkschneider is currently on the road as Dirkschneider, a project he began a few years ago to play sets entirely consisting of Accept songs. (This is in addition to the current lineup of Accept, who tour and release albums with a different singer, and in addition to Udo's band U.D.O., though most Dirkschneider members also play in U.D.O.) The current Dirkschenider tour hit NYC's Gramercy Theatre on Friday (2/23), and they ripped through tons of Accept classics, like "Fast as a Shark," "Princess of the Dawn," "Balls to the Wall," "Metal Heart," "Midnight Mover," "Love Child," and more. Pictures of the show (including openers Metalfier) are in the gallery above. Setlist and a few videos, below.
