Doro Pesch has always been a fighter. A fighter who passionately stands for what she is: a pioneer and driving force for Heavy Metal.As a young girl her dad, being a lorry driver, took her on his tours, and thus awoke her passion for travelling. To be on the move, to experience new things; it has been a part of Doro’s life ever since she’s a little girl.
After forming the band WARLOCK in the early ‘80’s, she secured a record deal and played gigs and tours with legends like Judas Priest, Ozzy Osbourne, Bon Jovi, Metallica, Scorpions, Megadeth and W.A.S.P.She became the first woman to play the Monsters Of Rock Festival and continues to be a pioneer for females in Metal. Her solo albums have carried on that spirit, not least on her most recent, 17th studio album, “Raise Your Fist” released in 2012. The following year saw the “Queen of Rock & Metal” receive the “Legend” Award at the Metal Hammer “Golden Gods”. This was followed by a celebratory show on August 2nd at the Wacken Open Air in front of 80.000 fans. Last year she continued to celebrate her 30th anniversary with 2 huge shows in her hometown of Düsseldorf performing a Classic Night and a Rock’n’Roll Show (included on this live release) with illustrious star guests including Hansi Kursch (Blind Guardian), Uli Jon Roth (ex-Scorpions), Blaze Bayley (ex-Iron Maiden) and Udo Dirkschneider (ex-Accept).Across the 14 songs, Doro celebrates her career from Warlock to the present day, also offering up cover versions of artists that have inspired her – including Iron Maiden, Dio and Accept.
