Doro Announces 30th Anniversary Shows And Box Set

In honor of her 30 year stage jubilee, Doro Pesch will celebrate with fans on two separate shows this coming May 2nd May 3rd, 2014 at CCD Stadthalle at her hometown Düsseldorf. She comments:

"We came up with something very special for our 30 years stage anniversary, with two totally different shows, that cover the entire creative spectrum of my band and me – from emotional and soft, to hard, raw and heavy.”

Nuclear Blast also issued the following press release about the special performances: "The first anniversary show on May 2nd will be dedicated to Doro and the Classic Night Orchestra. Accompanied by brass, strings and her band, Doro will perform her most beautiful, emotional ballads like ‘Für Immer‘, ‘1000x Gelebt‘ or ‘Let Love Rain On Me‘ in the stylish surroundings of CCD Stadthalle.

"At this night big hits like ‘All We Are,‘ ‘Metal Tango,‘ or ‘Burn It Up‘ can’t be missing, that shine even brighter as they now receive a classical overdo by the orchestra. Fans have been waiting for this to happen for the past ten years, since Doro’s last performance with the Classic Night Orchestra was in 2004, after her album 'Classic Diamonds' has been praised by fans and critics alike.

"At the second anniversary show on May 3rd, Doro will let out the rock lady in her. On this night the blonde superstar will travel through all of her 30 years of an incredibly successful carrier, delivering a three hours high voltage set with all things Rock’n’Roll she has to offer. Fans can look forward to all hits, hymns and many surprises. On both days Doro will welcome several fantastic guests that will give their honors to the Metal-Queen on this big event. Amongst them of course Biff Byford, vocalist of legendary band Saxon as well as Chris Caffrey (Trans-Siberian Orchestra), Udo Dirkschneider (U.D.O; ex-Accept) and Blind Guardian's Hansi Kürsch."

Just in time for the celebration Nuclear Blast will release a Doro box set. She comments on the release:

“This is a 30 years special edition containing two CDs and a whole of fan memorabilia, I’ve chosen just for this purpose. CD 1 will be cover album with a collection of my very favorite songs of all times like ‘Touch Too Much‘ from AC/DC, ‘Egypt‘ from DIO or ‘Babe, I´m Gonna Leave You‘ from Led Zeppelin.

"CD 2 is a re-issue of my most current record 'Raise Your Fist,' which is very important to me, because, in my opinion, it includes some of the strongest tracks I’ve ever done. For instance ‘It Still Hurts’, my ballad with Motorhead’s Lemmy. There is a second, still unreleased version of that song, that will also be part of the cover album.”
