METAL CHURCH And DORO To Team Up For U.S. Tour In April/May

West Coast metal veterans METAL CHURCH will join forces with German metal queen Doro Pesch for a U.S. tour in April and May.

METAL CHURCH fans will be treated to several songs off the band's latest release, "Damned If You Do", as well one or two from "XI", and some METAL CHURCH fan favorites.

Said singer Mike Howe, "I am excited to get out on the road and embrace our faithful fans again, and any new fans are welcome into the fold! I'm also looking forward to joining forces with legendary metal singer Doro Pesch!! You will not be disappointed!

Added guitarist Kurdt Vanderhoof: "We are excited to hit the road in support of 'Damned If You Do' and couldn't be happier to share the stage with the legendary Doro Pesch."
Doro said: "We are doing a double headliner tour with our longtime friends METAL CHURCH. What a superb power package for all metal fans. I am so excited to hit the stage together with METAL CHURCH and I am very sure that the fans in the United States will be as thrilled as we are!!"

Fans can expect a "Best Of" WARLOCK show with all the highlights from the '80s, when WARLOCK conquered the metal world with smash hits like "All We Are", "Rule The Ruins", "When East Meets West", "Für Immer" and its hit album "Triumph & Agony".

"We will play all these hits," Doro promises, "but we will also have a lot more stuff ready from our latest albums, so fans can expect a nice dose of brand new Doro songs from the both very successful albums 'Forever Warriors' and 'Forever United'." She adds: "We will play our new anthem 'All For Metal' and 'Living Life To The Fullest', which is dedicated to my dear, sadly missed friend Lemmy."

The tour starts on April 17 in Las Vegas, Nevada and ends on May 11 in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
