Due to a band-related family emergency, German metal queen Doro Pesch has been forced to cancel her previously announced September 30 concert in Manchester, New Hampshire. The remaining U.S. dates on Doro's trek will go on as planned, with the first show now taking place on October 1 in Brooklawn, New Jersey.
Said Pesch of the upcoming trek: "I'm so excited to return to American soil and see my American fans again! They will definitely be great shows as the band did all these summer festivals and we are on fire. I can't wait!" Added drummer Johnny Dee: "I'm super psyched to play in the States again! Especially to see so many of our friends in South Jersey and New York. I only wish the tour was longer. Before ya know it, we'll be rocking the Japanese fans the following week!"
Doro Pesch U.S./Japanese tour dates:
Oct. 01 - The Pennant - Brooklawn, NJ
Oct. 02 - Jaxx - Springfield, VA
Oct. 03 - Crazy Donkey - Farmingdale, NY
Oct. 08 - Holiday Shinjuku - Tokyo, Japan

Doro recently put the finishing touches 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.
After a break in 2011, Doro will begin writing material for a new studio album.
"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.
