"To make things extra-special we want the fans to get involved in picking the set lists for the tour. We’ll be running a poll on our Facebook page. We hope you’ll check that out and cast your vote".

"The Anniversary Tour was incredibly well received everywhere and we know there are many more places we need to get to. So we are planning an additional second US tour leg in spring 2015".

To accompany the tour, Nuclear Blast America will release “Raise Your Fist - 30 Years Anniversary-Edition”, containing the re-release of the great “Raise Your Fist” record and a bonus CD, “Powerful Passionate Favorites”, featuring Doro and the band’s versions of songs by some of their favorite artists, such as LED ZEPPELIN, METALLICA, KISS and DIO. Also some new and rare tracks as well. The release date in North America is scheduled for October 14th.
