Dirkschneider To Release Live Back To The Roots Album This October

The long-awaited live album from Dirkschneider’s Back To The Roots Tour will be released on October 28th as 2CD Digipak and 3LP in four different colors (black, gold, silber and clear) via AFM Records.

During the tour rock legend Udo Dirkschneider was presented a Sold Out Award for the extremely successful Dirkschneider tour, where 31 out of 48 Europe shows were sold out!

“It’s unbelievable, I never expected this tour to be so overly successful“, Udo comments, “It’s beautiful to see how many people walk with me on my personal way of saying goodbye to the Accept chapter.“

The singer with the charismatic voice had his musical breakthrough with Accept in the early 80s. “It’s still so much fun to sing these songs live, they are a part of my biography, but nevertheless it’s about time to turn that page. There was so much talking and speculations about me and Accept, so this is kind of a musical statement from my end – which seems to be very interesting for the fans who came to these shows.”

The album, Live – Back To The Roots, was recorded at the sold out show at Kaminwerk in Memmingen on April 2nd, 2016.
