DORO To Be Joined By BOBBY 'BLITZ' ELLSWORTH, JEFF WATERS, JEAN BEAUVOIR, LEATHER LEONE At NYC Show

Reigning queen of metal Doro Pesch kicked off the North American leg of her "30 Years Strong & Proud" anniversary tour this past Friday, October 10 in Wisconsin. The German singer is scheduled to rock eleven venues, including New York City's Gramercy Theater on October 20, where she will be joined by a host of special guests, including Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth (OVERKILL), Chris Caffery (SAVATAGE, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA), Jeff Waters (ANNIHILATOR), Jean Beauvoir (CROWN OF THORNS, PLASMATICS) and Leather Leone (RUDE GIRL, CHASTAIN).

The worldwide trek marks an astounding thirty years since the release of Doro's first record — WARLOCK's "Burning The Witches". Beginning with a mammoth headlining set at last year's Wacken Open Air, which boasted a record-breaking attendance of over 95,000 fans, Doro's tour included two special anniversary shows in her hometown of Düsseldorf as well as countless festival appearances and performances throughout Europe and Latin America.

Doro is touring in support of "Raise Your Fist", released worldwide via Nuclear Blast in 2012. Dubbed "50 minutes of expertly crafted Teutonic metal" by Outburn, which crowned Doro "...the classiest lady in metal," the CD boasts guest appearances by MOTÖRHEAD's Lemmy Kilmister and OZZY OSBOURNE/FIREWIND guitarist Gus G., and artwork by British artist and longtime Doro collaborator Geoffrey Gillespie. An import version of Doro's "Raise Your Fist - 30 Years Anniversary Edition" is currently available via the Nuclear Blast webshop to coincide with the tour and includes new and rare tracks plus a bonus CD titled "Powerful Passionate Favorites" comprised of cover versions of DIO, LED ZEPPELIN, METALLICA and KISS songs.
