Biography

Achieving an astounding #1 in the vinyl charts and #4 in the album charts in Germany! #3 in Finland, #3 (vinyl) and #7 (album) in Sweden. Also landing #2 in the UK rock charts as well as numerous other top rankings across Europe and the US - DORO is experiencing success on a global scale due to her recently released studio album "Forever Warriors, Forever United". Triumphant, she will celebrate at concert arenas around the globe on her upcoming eponymous World Tour (starting on November 8, 2018).

DORO’s 20th album (inc. WARLOCK and live releases) is proof of her long lasting chapter of the finest creativity and power. Released just in time for her 35th anniversary of live performance, DORO presented her first ever double album to the world. The release includes 25 brand new songs which all have one thing in common; incredible stylistic diversity paired with the highest quality.

Her power was fully demonstrated on her 35th live anniversary on 3 August 2018, during her fantastic headline performance in front of 80.000 fans at the legendary Wacken Open Air.
Directly afterwards, still on stage and surrounded by the cheers of fans, DORO was officially inducted into the US HALL OF HEAVY METAL HISTORY. There she is in good company with the likes of Lemmy Kilmister, Ronnie James Dio and Judas Priest.

The world has officially known Doro Pesch as a living legend since June 17, 2013, when the ‘Queen of Rock & Metal’ won the Metal Hammer UK "Legends" award at the prestigious "Golden Gods Awards" in London. Only three months later on September 13th 2013, she was given the same honour in Germany, when she also received the German Metal Hammer "Legend" award.

On May 15th 2016, DORO received her next major accolade in the US when she was awarded the "Metal Goddess Legends Award" in Las Vegas. For the newly crowned rock and metal goddess it was just one of the highlights in an exciting year. After a successful US tour in February and March 2016, DORO celebrated the live premiere of the band’s new hit song "Love's Gone To Hell" in April, when they played as special guests on the "Rock Meets Classic" tour, which comprised of 16 shows across Germany and Switzerland in front of more than 110,000 spectators. In March 2016 DORO landed her own radio show on ROCK ANTENNE, where she can still be heard every first Sunday of the month from 12:00-14:00, playing her favorite music.

DORO now even has her own record label; "Rare Diamond Productions" was founded in the autumn of 2017. It serves DORO, publishing her own rarities, re-releases and special editions. For example, on October 27th 2017, a unique, new work was published; the first German only album by DORO, which of course - is called "Für Immer" and contains 17 exclusively German, digitally remastered DORO songs. The album conquered the top 20 in the German album charts in the first week straight away, as it stormed from zero to 16th place.
