On March 13, 2010, German metal queen Doro Pesch marked another very special milestone by performing her 2,500th concert at her hometown of Düsseldorf, Germany at the Burg-Wächter Castello arena.
Commented Doro: "A huge heartfelt THANK YOU for your continued support. Especially for making the 2,500th concert such a night to remember!!! What a special time we all had... hoping you all enjoyed it as much as we did.
"The crowd kept it strong until the end (and the lucky few even more at the after-party ;-)...
"The band could have played all night had the venue not kicked us out!!!
"And thanks to all of our guests, including KRYPTERIA, Luke Gosser and Marc Storace, Schmier, Sabina [Classen], Andy and the HOT ladies from Burn Bitch Burn."
