The Scoop: The Metal Republic of NYC might have only recently got a crushing show by Doro Pesch back in 2013 but that does not mean that The Big Apple Metalheads don’t welcome her back with open arms each time that she honors us with her presence. This year marks the one true Metal Queen’s 30th Anniversary of touring and she is calling this short run of US Regional Dates her “Strong and Proud” tour. I mentioned once before that I had enjoyed the music of Doro since she was in Warlock, and have continually been impressed by her genuine positivity towards her loyal fans as she delivers the goods on the stage like few others even dare attempt. It’s without a doubt that when you go to a Doro show, you are entertained and left screaming for more. Her show in NYC is bound to be a special one as she is pulling out the stops by bringing special guests to the stage with her. I am speaking of Bobby Blitz (Overkill), Chris Caffery (Savatage, Trans Siberian Orchestra), Jeff Waters (Annihilator), Leather Leone, Jean Bouvoir (Plasmatics, Crown Of Thorns) and most recently announced Veronica Freeman (Benedictum). Supporting the show will be The Mighty Swine and three talented local bands. This is surely going to be a night to remember for a very long time. That being said, I am super excited to announce that thanks to the folks at Livenation, PiercingMetal.com is going to send some of you to the show for free. Read on.
When & Where: Monday, October 20th, 7pm @ Gramercy Theatre (127 East 23rd Street NYC).
To Participate: When Doro last came around I did a contest for her show and I liked this premise so much that I decided to use it again. With Doro Pesch being the true ruling Queen of the Metal Realm, she must have a number of loyal knights in her service. Let’s have a little fun with this my readers and tell me who four of these knights might be and why you picked them. When I meant knights I mean individual players from bands outside of her own. I will be looking at the best comments and letting winners know if they have won a ticket right here in the post. You can sweeten the pot by telling me also how important her music is to you as a fan or musician yourself. I would number all this stuff sequentially. Remember to put your full real name and a working email address into the comment form so you can be reached about the show. This information is not shared and only I see the email address. Do not put this information into the comment itself as that would be public and I don’t want you spammed. Bring it on.
Restrictions: All PiercingMetal.com contests are open to our regional readers, Facebook and Twitter followers, but be aware that if you recently won any of these gives that we are looking for new participants first to give everyone a fair chance at enjoying a concert for free. For the Doro show I would also prefer that you are NOT someone who has won a ticket to see her under our list because this keeps it all the more fair. Anonymous and Guest submissions while approved will be immediately disqualified and please only enter once and know that all comments are moderated.
