As previously reported (see here), Doro will celebrate 30 years in the recording business by re-releasing “Raise Your Fist” in a special double edition. It is now known that the release date is set for 5th May and the cover of Led Zeppelin‘s classic “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You” is available for streaming on YouTube:

Quotings the Metal Queen herself: “Along with T.Rex, Led Zeppelin was among my all-time favorite bands of the 70s. They were four phenomenal musicians, who did not only come up with excellent rock songs, but also with wonderful ballads – such as »Babe I’m Gonna Leave You«, a very emotional track and among my personal faves of the band. This is why it became the first choice for our Raise Your Fist – Anniversary Edition.”

Doro Pesch released her debut album, with Warlock (“Burning The Witches”) in 1984. In order to celebrate these 30 years of successful studio releases, the German Metal Queen will do what she does best – touring worldwide. This tour, suitably called “30 Years Strong & Proud”, includes two very special shows in her hometown Düsseldorf: a “Classic Night”, with full orchestra, on May 2nd, and a “Rock Night” with guests the following night. Both shows will be held at the CCD Stadthalle. As for the UK, London will welcome Doro in the O2 Islington Academy on May 19th (tickets available here).

Despite being her anniversary, the gift is for the fans: her latest album “Raise Your Fist” (2012) will be re-released with a bonus CD entitled “Powerful Passionate Favorites”, where Doro covers some of her favorite artists (hence the title) and offers some other treats:
