DORO Performs In China; Photos, Video Footage Available

German metal queen Doro Pesch played her first shows ever in China on November 15 and November 16 in Guangzhou and Beijing, respectively, in conjunction with a three-year exhibition/festival/culture exchange project initiated by the Chinese and German governments. According to a posting on Doro's web site, more than 30,000 people turned up to watch her perform.

Commented Doro: "The gigs were just awesome. The fans really partied out during the shows. I would not have expected them to be that much into metal and my music, especially as these were my first shows in China."

A short fan-filmed video clip of Doro performing in Guangzhou can be viewed below.
