Continuing their meteoric rise to international stardom, BABYMETAL has checked off another box on their world conquest to-do list: Playing a headline show in the U.S.
The show on July 27 has even made waves in Japan thanks to a fan video uploaded to YouTube shortly after the group’s LA tour. Check it out below.
Coinciding with the release of their first full album earlier this year, BABYMETAL released a live video for “Gimme Chocolate!!” in February. In the months since then, the video has racked up well over twelve million views and been reposted by numerous major news outlets. While BABYMETAL isn’t quite yet a household name like, for example, Anthrax, they’re not the relatively unknown group we interviewed last year either – and if the July 27 show in LA is any indication, they’re doing something very right.
But if you missed BABYMETAL in California, you might still have a chance to see them in the United States -- if you’re in the right city. Starting this week, the group will be on the road with none other than Lady Gaga.
Once the mini-tour with the Fame Monster is finished, the group will play at Heavy Montreal before returning to Japan for Summer Sonic and two special dates at the Makuhari Messe International Convention Complex. Those of you in Tokyo should keep an eye on their schedule page for up-to-date information and ticket info.
