Doro confirms Strong & Proud Euro tour

Doro Pesch has announced a 19-date European winter tour which kicks off with three UK shows.

The German metal icon’s Strong & Proud trek stars in Norwich on November 20, with support from Archer.

Doro says: “These guys are really good. Archer already proved their qualities as support on our spring US tour and I’m looking forward to presenting them to my German and European fans.”

She adds: “In my career, I’ve benefitted enormously from tours with Judas Priest and Dio. Young bands need these experiences. That’s why I’m very keen on taking Archer with me.”

Doro reported in March that she’s well into the writing process for the follow-up to 2012’s Raise Your Fist.
