BabyMetal is Coming!

Well... It happened. BabyMetal is coming to North America. And I'm pretty upset about it. They're not coming on a tour or anything like that. It's just to play one festival: Heavy MTL. Here's the rest of the bands.

I'm not exactly sure what The Offspring and Three Days Grace are doing at something that's supposed to be a metal concert, but that's North America for you. The bands I'd actually bother checking out are as follows: Metallica, Slayer, Lamb of God, Anthrax, Epica, Alestorm, Symphony X, Overkill and BabyMetal. Out of those, I've seen Epica's live show and it wasn't all that great and I've seen Alestorm 4 times in the past. It's just not worth the $100-200 (plus accommodation and food) to see 7 bands that I'm not really dying to see.

The band that I never thought in my wildest dreams would ever come to this continent is playing a show in my home country and I'm going to miss out on it. The good thing though is that there's now a significantly higher chance that they'll come back. The Montreal crowd had better give them a warm kawaii welcome. Or else.

Who could ever resist this band? I've shown BabyMetal to people who don't listen to metal and they loved it. I just hope I'll get a chance to see them in person.

  1. I would say- go for it. Go for Babymetal alone, I will see them live in Germany this year, I won't miss this band in Europe, I just can't wait. Galneryus is not coming to Europe like never so I can't let it happen to Babymetal. I'm not even their fan, or a creep that would like to fuck the shit out of them, I just wanna be there, witness this show. It's just some kind of sick phenomenon I wanna see happen? Hard to explain :P

    1. I would but unfortunately I don't have an extra $200+ to spare. :P

      I'm pretty much counting on the fact that they'll be back. They're so young (both the band itself and its members) so hopefully they'll be touring for many years to come. Haha, I became a pretty big fan of BabyMetal's music for some reason and I think seeing their show anywhere besides Japan would be awesome. I do wonder what kinds of fans it would bring too.
