German metal vocalist Doro Pesch is starting her U.S. tour in Tampa this Friday, February 1st, at the Brass Mug nightclub, with Swedish metal band Sister Sin as the opening act. This will be the singer's first time stopping in Florida in years.
Pesch talked about her U.S. tour in a recent interview with Femme Metal Webzine, saying, "You know how much I love playing the United States. I think we are playing 21 gigs altogether, so I'm totally excited and the places we can't hit now, I hope we can play later in the year. I know a couple of great cities where we have always played in front of great audiences — for example, Boston — that are not on the tour rider yet, but I definitely want to push to play more cities later in the year. But I'm so happy to be playing these 21 gigs. I promise I will give my absolute all and my best, and the guys in the band too, we are all so psyched. I definitely want to give the fans something they will never forget."
Pesch started out as the singer in the band Warlock, whose debut album Burning The Witches was released in 1984. After the band split in 1988, Pesch pursued a solo career. She released her 12th studio album, Raise Your Fist, in November 2012.
The show starts at 7:00 PM this Friday, February 1st.
