Ice-Ton Wacken World Wide
„I hope you guys are enjoying the show and I hope to see everybody out there very soon! In concert! Live!“
Dorois looking forward to the event as well:             
„W:O:A is known to be one of my absolute favorite festivals. It is very, very sad that it has to be cancelled for the first time this year. There is nothing better than standing on one of the big Wacken stages and rocking together with 75,000 metalheads!”, says the metal queen.
“Thanks to Wacken World Wide there is an ingenious option for artists and fans to celebrate metal together digitally and online. We will of course also perform the Wacken anthem “We Are The Metalheads” at our show with full power, including fireworks on stage. I am looking forward to seeing you! All We Are! Forever!”
