DORO PESCH – US Tour Dates Announced; Wins “Maximum Metal” Award

Legendary German metal priestess DORO PESCH is proud to announce her return to the U.S. for four special dates later this year. The former Warlock front woman and her band mates will hit stages in New Hampshire, New Jersey, Virginia and New York this Fall as part of her on-going Fear No Evil world tour. Said Pesch of the upcoming dates, “I’m so excited to return to American soil and see my American fans again! They will definitely be great shows as the band is doing all these summer festivals and we are on fire! I can’t wait!” The US dates will serve as virtual warm up shows for the band’s Japanese debut this October. Check out the Japanese teaser video:

In related news, DORO, who opened the Wacken Open Air Festival on August 5 with “We Are The Metalheads” (the Wacken anthem) and Warlock classic “All We Are,” took home a Metal Hammer award in the category “Maximum Metal” for her outstanding achievements over a nearly three-decade long career. The award was presented on the second day of the prestigious event. Commented and truly touched-sounding DORO from the event: “It makes me so happy and truly inspires me to continue to always give my best to the fans I love so much. I will always try my hardest to make them happy and to always give 200% every show and every record. I want to again thank the fans for their tremendous love and support through all these great years.”
