Friday the 13th, 2013 for sure was a day of good luck, unlike the notorious date. At 10:30 pm, at the celebratory ceremony of METAL HAMMER AWARDS in Berlin, 48-times Berlin World boxing champion Regina Halmich announces the winner of the category “Legend”. Her name: DORO Pesch!
Now the most important female Hard Rock and Heavy Metal singer is officially named a legend in her native Germany. Just three months earlier, DORO had been awarded at the “Golden Gods Awards“ at music mecca London.
“Unbelievable”, a shining DORO states. “The prophet does not count that much in his own country. Receiving this trophy in Germany and getting it handed over by my dear friend Regina Halmich is a big, big honor.”
DORO continues: “I am ever so happy, that also two of my absolute favorite bands METALLICA and MOTÖRHEAD were present at this wonderful event to witness this. With those guys I’ve been close friends for years.”
Two “Legend“ Awards within just three months – the double-coronation for the blonde Rock-Queen and this in the year of her 30th stage anniversary.
Her fans can also take part in the celebration and enjoy the living legend live from October 12 onwards. At that time DORO will be embarking on her big 30 years Strong and Proud-Tour through Germany. Highlight: The double concert on May 2/3 2014 at her hometown Düsseldorf (CCD – Stadthalle).
