U.D.O. (Performing the Best of Accept) With Special Guest Fear Not [SEP 29]


Performing the Best of Accept

U.D.O. is a German heavy metal band founded by lead vocalist Udo Dirkschneider in 1987. Following Udo Dirkschneider’s departure from Accept (hits include “Breaker”, “Restless and Wild”, and ” Balls to the Wall”) in 1987, he formed his own band called U.D.O. The original lineup was guitarists Mathias Dieth and Peter Szigeti, bassist Frank Rittel, and drummer Thomas Franke. They released their debut album titled Animal House on November 3, 1987, which was entirely written by Accept. They would tour with the likes of Guns N’ Roses, Lita Ford, and Zodiac Mindwarp. The follow-up album Mean Machine was released on January 10, 1989.

In 1992, Dirkschneider put U.D.O. on hiatus to reunite with Accept. In 1996, Dirkschneider reactivated U.D.O. with a brand new line-up: Stefan Kaufmann, now undertaking guitar duties, with guitarist Jürgen Graf, bassist Fitty Wienhold from Bullet, and Stefan Schwarzmann returning to the band. They took part in the 1997 compilation album A Tribute to Judas Priest: Legends of Metal, which featured the song “Metal Gods”.

The seventeenth and most recent studio album Game Over was released on October 22, 2021.

Currently, the U.D.O. lineup is Udo Dirkschneider on vocals, Andrey Smirnov and Fabian Dee Dammers on guitar, Sven Dirkschneider on drums, and Peter Baltes on bass.


Fear Not is a melodic hair metal band that formed in Los Angeles, California back in the early 90’s. Fear Not draws comparison to bands like Skid Row, Siloam, Guardian, and Slaughter.

In 1993, Fear Not released their debut full-length self-titled album on Pakaderm Records. Their debut release quickly captures the listener’s attention with its melodic 80’s Metal AOR sound, commercial hooks, powerful lead vocals, and spot on production. The band’s debut quickly garnered the group some needed exposure, allowing them to take their show on the road and even open for some well known acts like Bride, Guardian, Deliverance, and Barron Cross.
