“We are doing a double headliner tour with our longtime friends Metal Church. What a superb power package for all metal fans. I am so excited to hit the stage together with Metal Church and I am very sure that the fans in the United States will be as thrilled as we are!!

We will play all these hits, but we will also have a lot more stuff ready from our latest albums, so fans can expect a nice dose of brand new Doro songs from the both very successful albums ‘Forever Warriors’ and ‘Forever United.’ We will play our new anthem ‘All For Metal’ and ‘Living Life To The Fullest’, which is dedicated to my dear, sadly missed friend Lemmy.”
