When Udo Dirkschneider and company played a two-hour set of Accept classics here last year, it was one of my favourite shows of 2017. At the time, I said I no longer needed to catch U.D.O. or Accept in concert again…but when I saw he was bringing back his namesake band for another kick of the can, I figured it was worth seeing twice!
Once again I find myself in Helsinki to attend the Tuska Open Air Festival, which has become a staple in my yearly concert plans….
This shindig was billed Farewell to Accept, and it was a proper farewell tour–with a 90-minute set and a four-song encore that covered all the classics from I’m a Rebel to Russian Roulette.
