U.D.O. Will Not Play In Belarus

U.D.O. — the German band led by former ACCEPT frontman Udo Dirkschneider — has issued the following update:

"For the beginning of December, there were 2 or 3 shows in Belarus announced and there are seemingly tickets on sale. We want to inform the fans that U.D.O. has NEVER confirmed these shows and as a result will NOT play there. The local promoter in Belarus has asked for the dates and they were reserved by the management but he has neither closed a deal nor payed the necessary advance payment. He was not allowed to sell tickets in pre-sale as long as we didn't confirm the shows.
"DON'T BUY any tickets, please!!! If you already bought tickets then refund them immediately and reclaim your money."

According to a posting on U.D.O.'s web site, fans who attend the German group's concerts will now have achance to purchase a recording of each show immediately following the completion of the gig on a 1 GB USB stick with a U.D.O. logo printed on it.

U.D.O. will release its "best-of" album, "Metallized - 20 Years of Metal", on November 30 via AFM Records. The CD booklet will be filled with photos from the last 20 years and and will include liner notes written by Metal Hammer journalist Andreas Schöwe. The first 12 songs on the collection were chosen by fans via the official U.D.O. web site, while tracks 13 to 16 will consist of two unreleased songs, an acoustic version of the ACCEPT classic "Balls to the Wall", and a live version of "The Bullet and the Bomb".

U.D.O.'s new album, "Mastercutor", entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 39 — the highest German chart position in the band's history.

"Mastercutor" was released on May 18 via AFM Records. Several extra songs were recorded for the CD, with different territories getting their own bonus cuts. The Japanese edition of the CD comes with the track "Man a King Ruler", the Russian album includes "Platchet Soldat", and both feature the song "Streets of Sin". The European limited-edition version of "Mastercutor" includes the songs "Borderline" and "Screaming Eagles".
