Udo Dirkschneider – 13th April 2016 – Newcastle Riverside

By Gordon Armstrong (G’s Gig Shots)

Firstly apologies for the lack of varied angles in this set. Having a cast on ones leg in a photo pit coupled with a retina burning lighting rig kinda limited my mobility amongst the pro togs haha! Udo hasn’t played town in a long time so to make up for it he came out and did a 23 (yes 23) song set of Accept songs old and new. Hold my hand up I was lost on a lot of them as I have never been a huge fan, but the couple of hundred faithful who turned up to the gig seemed to love it!

The band were tight as anything and they played the part brilliantly with all the old choreographed moves and solos. ‘Fast as A Shark’ and ‘Balls To The Wall’ were the obvious highlights of the night for me, but I was impressed with the rest of the set too. I think the set could have been about 5 songs shorter and maybe given Anvil a bit more time, but hey, that’s just my opinion.
