U.D.O Live in Västerås 2024-02-08

8/10

I had quite mixed emotions surrounding this, mostly personal reasons. And I didn´t really feel the anticipation that I normally get when it’s a live show coming up.

Udo Dirkschneider, this living legend live in a small foyer in Sweden on a cold February thursday, thank you all who attended. I did not think he would have such a big audience in a town known for being hard flirted. But I think that Udos profesional experience can make any dull day a great day. And this evening were no exception.

Thank you Udo for not including any song from “that” band on this tour at all (you have Dirschneider for that!) but why oh why end the set with “We will rock you”- I heard it while I was leaving.

Udos music is classic heavy metal and if its heavy on the albums its even heavier live. Who put a bulldozer in the mix? I smiled with joy when I heard the heaviness in the songs. And it didn´t loose any of the melodies in them either.

The band is now a well oiled machine with none other than Peter Baltes on bass (he seemed to enjoy himself too this evening) bringing 19 (I don´t count the unnecessary cover of “We will rock you- the final song) great tunes to life. And! do you believe me when i say 1) No solos 2) no real encores. Two huge plus in my book. I was totally floored tonight and  maybe I should have the same mindset before every show in the future, see how it turned out.
