“It was my wish for my 30-year stage anniversary – which I will be celebrating on May 2nd and 3rd, 2014 in my hometown of DÃ¼sseldorf [Germany] – to present unique drinks to the fans that represent my own taste and quality standard,” comments DORO. “We went to a great old wine region in Spain to pick the right product for me and I discovered a very fine red wine there.”

“Hero” is a track off of DORO’s 2012 album, Raise Your Fist, which was dedicated to one of the all-time greatest vocalists in rock and metal, Ronnie James Dio. “Herzblut [Lifeblood]” was released as a single in 2009. The Herzblut EP contains German, French, Spanish, and Portuguese versions of the song.
DORO’s 30 Years Strong And Proud Tour launches next year. Her career in music spans three decades, sixteen studio albums, eleven EPs, countless tours, a worldwide fanbase, and even includes various movie roles. This year, she was the recipient of the Metal Hammer Award in Berlin and the Golden Gods Award in London – both in the “Legend” category.
The two-night live concert party in May 2014 celebrating DORO’s multi-decade career already includes the participation of Blind Guardian, Mille Petrozza of Kreator, and Udo Dirkschneider of U.D.O./ex-Accept. “I have the most awesome friends and colleagues,” DORO shares with a wide smile.
Raise Your Fist – which features musical guests Lemmy Kilmister of MotÃ¶rhead and Ozzy/Firewind guitarist Gus G. – debuted at #65 on the American Billboard Heatseekers chart in November of last year and can be purchased from the Nuclear Blast Webshop.
