German metal queen Doro Pesch recently completed work on her biggest project to date — the 2DVD/CD set "25 Years In Rock", featuring the entire 25-year anniversary concert, including guest performances in front of about 10,000 enthusiastic fans in Düsseldorf, Germany as well as a China special, outtakes from Doro's 2500th concert and a whole lot more. The DVD will be released in Europe via Nuclear Blast on November 26, 2010 and in the rest of the world sometime in 2011.
The video clip below contains footage of Doro performing the
song "Walking With The Angels" as a duet with former NIGHTWISH frontwoman Tarja Turunen — taken from the "25 Years In Rock" DVD.
"25 Years In Rock" will be screened on November 23 at the UCI Colosseum (Schönhauser Allee 123) in Berlin, Germany at 7:30 p.m. Doro will also take part in a signing session at the venue starting at 6:30 p.m. Admission is 8 euros. In addition, a release party for the DVD will be held at 10:00 p.m. that same night at Blackland (Lilli Henoch Str. 1) which will feature a short live set by Doro at 11:00 p.m. performed with a couple special guests. At midnight, unreleased live footage (Wacken Open Air, Summer Breeze) will be screened at the club.
Pesch celebrated her 25-year career as the reigning queen of German heavy metal by performing a three-hour set on December 13, 2008 at the ISS Dome in Düsseldorf, Germany. HOLY MOSES, LEAVES EYES' and ARCH ENEMY opened the show and were followed by full set by DORO herself, which included guest appearances by Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth (OVERKILL), Jean Beauvoir, GRAVE DIGGER's Chris Boltendahl and guitarist Axel Rudi Pell, Turunen, SCORPIONS' Klaus Meine and Rudolf Schenker, as well as a host of other female vocalists, such as Liv Kristine (LEAVES' EYES), Floor Jansen (AFTER FOREVER), members of GIRLSCHOOL, Liv of SISTER SIN and Sabina Classen of HOLY MOSES.
"Fear No Evil", the latest album from Pesch, was made available in North America in June 2009 via AFM/Dismanic/Ryko Distribution.
Released in Europe in January 2009 via AFM Records, "Fear No Evil" entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 11. This was the highest chart entry for Doro in her home country in almost 20 years.
After a break in 2011, Doro will begin writing material for a new studio album.
