The long-awaited live album from DIRKSCHNEIDER's "Back To The Roots Tour" will be released on October 28th as 2-CD Digipak and Gtf. 3-Vinyl in 4 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“.
Due to extremely high requests from fans and promoters DIRKSCHNEIDER will continue touring until the end of 2016. After the triumph all over Europe in spring 2016, DIRKSCHNEIDER will tour in Israel and Japan, doing a lot of summer festivals afterwards and then touring the US, Russia and Europe in fall and winter 2016.
The album "LIVE - Back To The Roots" has been recorded at the sold out show at "Kaminwerk" in Memmingen on April 2nd, 2016.
