Last weekend in Las Vegas, Doro received her well-deserved award, acknowledging her decades-long dedication, passion and love of music.

She was met with enthusiastic applause and a standing ovation by the crowd when she received the ‘Metal Goddess’ Legends Awardat the Vegas Rocks Hair Metal Awards at the Casablanca Event Center of Eastside Cannery Casino.

"It was incredibly nice, the people celebrated endlessly and everyone in the hall stood up and clapped for me - even my colleagues couldn't rest on their chairs!"

Those colleagues were Scorpions, who received a lifetime achievement award, as well as Twisted Sister amongst other legendary artists.

Doro received her third Legend Award in Las Vegas - she has already been honoured with two ‘Living Legend’ awards; at the awards shows of prominent magazines in London and Berlin in 2013.

"The first two award shows were already phenomenal, but how the Americans celebrated the evening here in Vegas, that's unbeatable,"

DORO explains after her return to hometown Dusseldorf.
But there isn't much time for Doro to enjoy this happiness as today, she will fly to Krasnodar, Russia with her band for another show on her world tour - which will take place next weekend.

Doro reveals on her brand new DVD, just how life behind the scenes is going; ‘Strong And Proud - 30 Years Of Rock And Metal’, which will be released on June 24th via Nuclear Blast.

Alongside DORO's anniversary shows in Wacken, Dusseldorf, New York and Moscow, an extensive music documentary entitled‘Behind The Curtain, Inside The Heart Of DORO’, is included on the DVD as a special highlight. It delivers the spectator some deep and unique insights in the touring life of the rock legend.

"It features great impressions from all over the world and never-before-seen footage from our life behind the stage. The camera team accompanied us everywhere for over one year and captured some very emotional, intimate and human situations."
