U.D.O. have a wonderfully animated, fun loving, crowd taunting super talented guitarist. He’s 100 times too cocky, loves himself a little bit too much but by god, can he play!
Interview with Joakim Nilsson (Vocals, Guitars) (Graveyard)
Thankfully not as they came back out a few minutes later to fly into Rusty Cage, a personal favourite of mine, but then killed all of the energy they had going with Like Suicide, which don’t get me wrong is a song I really like, but it’s a bit of a downer in an encore. The show ended with Beyond the Wheel and then a really annoying 10 minutes plus of an aural assault with just Ben and Kim on stage backs to the crowd and a lot of puzzled looks going on. The weird and at times wonderful Soundgarden for me at least just didn’t hit enough highs tonight, not a bad gig, but certainly not blown away either. Till next time I live in hope.
