Warlock, the band that first thrust German Metal Queen Doro Pesch into the spotlight, reformed for two summer festival dates back in February and now they are to undertake a tour of major US cities in September.

Guitarist Tommy Bolan announced this afternoon on Steve Göldby Talks Metal on MetalTalk Radio On TotalRock that the band are to play a US tour after completing their engagements at Sweden Rock and Norway Live in June and July. The full list of dates are to follow.

Tommy said on the show, after confirming that the line-up will be Doro's current solo album plus himself:

"There will be other European dates and I do know we're going to be playing the United States in September, in some of the major cities like New York, Chicago, LA, those are all pretty much confirmed.

"I don't know the exact numbers but I do know it's definitely going to be happening in September."

You can listen to the whole conversation right here.

The dates are to commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of Warlock's fourth and last album 'Triumph And Agony', which contains classic cuts 'All We Are', 'I Rule The Ruins', 'East Meets West', 'Fur Immer' and more.

As well as American musicians Tommy Bolan and Tommy Henriksen, who both made their Warlock debuts on 'Triumph And Agony', the album features Cozy Powell on some tracks.

The two confirmed Warlock dates are:

8th June: Sweden Rock
7th July: Norway Rock Live

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
