Recently German Metal Queen Doro Pesch was honored as “Metal Goddess” 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 Award at Vegas Rocks Hair Metal Awards in the Casablanca Event Center of Eastside Cannery Casino. Of the ceremony she said: “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 The Scorpions, who received a lifetime achievement award, as well as Twisted Sister among others. This is her third Legends Award – she has already been honored 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 Dusseldorf.
