Reigning Queen of Metal DORO PESCH will be appearing as a guest on VH1 Classic’s Season 10 of “That Metal Show.”
“It’s awesome that there’s such a great and unique metal show on television. ‘That Metal Show’ is my favorite show to watch when I’m in America! I’ve known Eddie Trunk for a very long time. He’s a long-time supporter and I love what he does… and he’s always a great interview when I’m in New York. I’m very excited and looking forward to being on the show!”
Hosted by Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine, the DORO episode will air Saturday, May 12th at 9 p.m. PACIFIC / 11 p.m. EASTERN.

DORO’s mammoth 25 Years In Rock 2 DVD/CD set – which has immortalized her 2,500th live concert – was released last September.
DORO celebrated her 25th anniversary concert in 2008 at the ISS Dome in her hometown of Düsseldorf, Germany. With over 8,500 people in attendance, this magical performance featured her long-time band members Nick Douglas (bass), Joe Taylor (guitar), Johnny Dee (drums) and Oliver Palotai (keyboards, guitar). Guest appearances were made by Overkill’s Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth, Grave Digger’s Chris Boltendahl, former Nightwish singer Tarja Turunen, Scorpions’ Klaus Meine and Rudolf Schenker, Liv Kristine (Leaves’ Eyes), Floor Jansen (After Forever), Axel Rudi Pell and many others. This once-on-a-lifetime concert set was captured in its entirety and includes outtakes from this very special career-affirming evening and is still available at the Nuclear Blast Webshop.
