|Russia has a special meaning for Udo Dirkschneider and his band U.D.O.. They were one of the very first international artists to tour the huge country of Russia - and their fans are still very thankful until this day. So recording a LIVE DVD to highlight the “Steelhammer” tour was an opportunity the band didn’t want to miss. It is the first LIVE release of U.D.O.’s new line-up which easily convinced fans and critics alike on recent festivals and headlining gigs. The band comes up with an exceptional setlist, incl. many classics that haven’t been played for a long time, fan favorites and tracks from the recent success album “Steelhammer”. U.D.O. once again prove why they are hailed as one of the best European live bands. “Steelhammer - Live From Moscow” will be available as DVD/2-CD, Bluray/2-CD and triple-Vinyl in Russian national colors (tricolor).
|Mar||17||, 2014||The band is back home|
|After the emotional tour through the Ukraine U.D.O. is back home. We would like to thank not only our promoters out there and all the people who traveled with us, We also thank all the fans who came to our shows. And it was amazing, beautiful and touching to see all of you in peace and harmony together. We thank you for that.|
Definitely we will never forget those moments.

|One of Udo's biggest dream was realized on the February 20th, 2014 in Tuttlingen. Once again he sets a milestone in the history of music and shows how Classic Metal really hits!|
Together with his band and the "Marinemusikkorps Nordsee", which is a pure brass orchestra, they created a unique fusion between Metal and Classic which was never done before. After 2 hours of pure power, performed by highly talented and qualified musicians, the audience could not believe that the performance was already over.
A show that will stay in the memories of the fans and the musicians for ever...
Thanx to all the fans that have rounded off with their enthusiasm this unique performance. Thanx to our great crew and all the silent helpers.
This day we will never forget.
Udo, Fitty, Andrey, Kasperi, Francesco

|Jan||07||, 2014||Special Show von U.D.O. mit dem Marinemusikkorps Nordsee am 20.02.2014 in der Stadthalle in Tuttlingen|
Pressetext (information in English see below):
Für Metal -Legende und Weltstar Udo Dirkschneider, Sänger der Gruppe U.D.O. und ex Sänger von Accept, geht mit diesem Projekt sein Herzenswunsch in Erfüllung. Lange Jahre gab es Pläne die eigenen Songs mit einem Classic Orchester neu zu arrangieren und einzuspielen. Die Zeit war jedoch immer zu knapp und inzwischen gab es viele solcher Projekte, sodass die Herausforderung nicht mehr groß genug war.
Beim diesjährigen Videodreh mit U.D.O. in Wilhelmshaven (das Video wurde auf bzw. in einem Zerstörer der Bundesmarine gedreht) freundete man sich mit den fantastischen Musikern des Marinemusikkorps Nordsee an und es stellte sich schnell heraus, dass die halbe Mannschaft der Marine U.D.O. Fans sind.
Und das inklusive Fregattenkapitän Lutz Bammler, seines Zeichens Chef und musikalischer Leiter des Marinemusikkorps.
In geselliger Runde auf dem Marineschiff beschlossen beide Seiten ein gemeinsames Projekt durchzuführen: U.D.O und das Marinemusikkorps Nordsee vereint auf einer Bühne präsentieren perfekt neu arrangierte Hits der Gruppe U.D.O.. Für Udo Dirkschneider war dies endlich die finale Steigerung zu seiner Classical Idee und schnell war die gemeinsame Mission beschlossene Sache.
Nun ist es endlich soweit, das Projekt ist fertig ausgearbeitet und erlebt am 20.02.2014 in der Stadthalle zu Tuttlingen seine Weltpremiere. Da dieses Konzert exklusiv und einmalig ist, wird das Konzert für eine DVD und Live CD mitgeschnitten. Es gibt also nur EINE einzige Chance dieses sehr spezielle Konzert live zu erleben. Für alle anderen Fans bleibt dann nur die DVD übrig...
Was erwartet die Besucher? Heavy Metal? Nein! Blasmusik? Erst recht nicht! Die Musik ist die Verschmelzung dynamischer Rock Songs und klassischen Arrangements aufgeführt in einer bisher einmaligen Symbiose einer klassischen Metalband und einem an Power und Dynamik nicht zu überbietenden Musikkorps. Abgerundet wird die Show durch einen Chor und eine gigantische Lichtshow.
Sämtliche Gewinne dieser Veranstaltung fließen in ein soziales Projekt zugunsten von Kinder, welche ihre (Soldaten-)Eltern in Erfüllung ihrer Dienstpflicht verloren haben. Wir möchten mit dieser Aktion versuchen kleinen Seelen wieder etwas Freude zu bereiten.
Für diese Veranstaltung wird es auch Special-VIP-Tickets (im U.D.O. WEB-SHOP) geben. Diese beinhalten ein ausführliches persönliches Treffen mit den Musikern, Autogrammen, ein exklusives T-shirt welches nicht käuflich zu erwerben ist sowie die Anwesenheit beim Soundcheck/Proben am Konzerttag. Diese Tickets sind streng limitiert.
Tickets gibt es unter www.tuttlinger-hallen.de oder 07461/910 996 oder email@example.com
Information in English:
The greatest wish of metal legend and world star Udo Dirkschneider, singer of the group U.D.O and ex-singer of Accept, is fulfilled with this project. For many years there were plans to make new arrangements of his own songs with a classical orchestra and to perform them. There was never enough time, however, and in the meantime there were many such projects, so that the challenge was not big enough.
During this year’s video performance with U.D.O in Wilhelmshaven (the video was made on board a destroyer of the German navy), he became familiar with the fantastic music of the Navy music corps Nordsee and he discovered that about half of the crew were fans of U.D.O. And that included frigate captain Lutz Bammler, who was at that time the boss and musical leader of the Navy music corps.
In convivial company on the navy ship, both parties decided to carry out a project together: U.D.O and the Navy music corps united on stage presenting perfect newly-arranged hits of U.D.O. For Udo Dirkschneider, this was at last the final augmentation of his classical idea and very soon the joint mission was a done deal.
Finally the time has come; the project has been worked out and on 20.02.2014 will be presented as world premiere in the Stadthalle in Tuttlingen. Since this concert is exclusive and unique, the concert will be mixed for a DVD and a Live CD. There will only be ONE chance to experience this special concert live. For all of the other fans there will only be the DVD …
What can the concert-goers expect? Heavy Metal? No! Brass band music? Definitely not! The music is a fusion of dynamic rock songs and classic arrangements presented in a unique symbiosis of a classic metal band and a music corps unbeatable in power and dynamic. The show will be rounded out with a choir and a gigantic light show.
All profits from this show will flow into a social project for the benefit of children whose military parents have lost their lives in the course of their military duty. With this action, we hope to give the little ones some pleasure.
There will also be special VIP tickets available (at the U.D.O. WEB-SHOP). These tickets will include detailed personal meetings with the musicians, autographs, an exclusive T-shirt which is not available on the market, as well as allowing the buyer to be present at the sound check/rehearsals on the day of the concert. These tickets are very limited.
Tickets are available on www.tuttlinger-hallen.de or you can phone 07461/910 996 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
