Former Accept frontman Udo Dirkschneider brings his band Dirkschneider to The Chance in Poughkeepsie this Saturday, Feb. 24 at 7pm.

Udo Dirkschneider former Accept out of Germany with guitarist Wolf Hoffmann and bassist Peter Baltes. The band was important to the development of speed and thrash metal in the early to mid 1980’s. Accept achieved commercial success in 1983 with the album Balls to The Wall and the title cut became a well known hit. The album remains Accept’s only gold album in the U.S. with other classic albums including Restless and Wild and Metal Heart. Dirkschneider currently fronts the band U.D.O. and they put out their latest album called Decadent in 2015. Got out for a great night of hard rockin 80's metal this Saturday! In case you wanna see what a Dirkschneider show is like, check out my review on the Metal Box from last year here when the band played the Capital Region area.

Tickets for Dirkschneider with special guests: Elm Street, Last Pharaoh and The Gregg Woods Band are on sale and available through and the Chance box office at 845-471-1966.
