Reigning queen of metal, DORO PESCH, will kick off the North American leg of her 30 Years Strong & Proud anniversary tour next week. Slated to commence in Wisconsin on October 10th, DORO will rock eleven cities, including a very special New York City performance at the Gramercy Theater on October 20th where DORO and her bandmates 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), Leather Leone (Rude Girl, Chastain) and more!

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 95K, DORO has since played two special anniversary shows in her hometown of Düesseldorf as well as countless festival appearances and performances throughout Europe, the UK, and Latin America and will finally make her mark Stateside!
