UPDATE: After revealing Doro Pesch as a guest vocalist on her new solo album, Liv Kristine has now unveiled the tracklist and audio previews of Vervain. You can check out the album tracklist below and hear snippets of her fifth solo album.
Having celebrated thirty years since the first time she took the stage this past May with a two-night live concert party in her hometown of Düsseldorf, Doro Pesch will be bringing her career-spanning anniversary tour across the ocean to North America this fall. A string of tour dates will be executed in October, and you can check them out now.
For her 30 years stage jubilee, Doro will celebrate with fans and two separate yet unique shows on May 2nd: the Classic Night with Orchestra, and May 3rd: Rock Night - both with many guests, at CCD Stadthalle of her hometown of Düsseldorf. Just in time for the celebration, there will be an anniversary record of the rock queen. The Raise Your Fist - 30 Years Anniversary Edition contains the re-release of the Raise Your Fist record, as well as a bonus CD highlight entitled Powerful Passionate Favorites. There you will find new and unreleased tracks, but also Doro cover versions of her favorite artists, such as Led Zeppelin, Tina Turner, Metallica, Kiss and Dio.

Several guests will join her on stage during the concerts, including Hansi Kürsch of Blind Guardian, Miland "Mille" Petrozza of Kreator, and former Accept singer Udo Dirkschneider.
Leisure time does not seem to exist for singer Doro Pesch as she is once again about to face an overwhelming schedule, which has her commute between two worlds: the music business and the movie industry.

Doro will be impersonating warrior Meha, who is fighting dark rivaling hordes with her mountain people in 2,500 BD.
