BABYMETAL released a legend map depicting their entire 10th anniversary year. It was also revealed that as the grand finale of BABYMETAL’s 10th anniversary year, on Sunday, October 10th, their 10-year legend since 2010 will be “sealed” from the world.
BABYMETAL’s 10th anniversary year began on October 10th of last year and since then, they have accomplished two major feats: BABYMETAL released their greatest hits album 10 BABYMETAL YEARS and successfully completed a series of 10 performances called 10 BABYMETAL BUDOKAN at the Nippon Budokan between January to April 2021. The third and final feat to conclude their commemorative year will be 10 BABYMETAL LEGENDS, a series of projects looking back at BABYMETAL’s 10-year accomplishments.
Japanese metal band BABYMETAL started 2021 with the continuation of the celebration of their ten-year anniversary, with a series of ten exclusive shows at the NIPPONBUDOKAN in Tokyo.
Seven years after their first appearance at the legendary venue, which saw them become the youngest female artist to headline in the venue’s prestigious history, BABYMETAL delivered a series of ten performances, utilising the unique layout of the 360-degree venue with a centre stage that gave those in attendance the ability to enjoy the performance up close from any seat.
On Thursday, January 7th, Japan issued a state of emergency and all measures were called to prevent further outbreak of the coronavirus. Following all strict guidelines enforced by the country and by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, each performance was carefully monitored to follow all preventative measures: each performance ended by 8:00pm, “Savior Masks” (face masks) were distributed to all fans who came to the show and were to be worn on top of the mask each fan originally had on, etc.
LOVEBITES, one of the most important Japanese heavy metal bands, will release their thunderous new EP GLORY, GLORY, TO THE WORLD in the UK on CD and vinyl from 28 May, 2021 from JPU Records. It will be an extended EP featuring the award-winning band’s first theme song from anime as a bonus track. This will be the first time the LOVEBITES EP has been set to vinyl in the world.
To celebrate, the band will be playing a sold-out Los Angeles show this evening at The Forum where they are bringing their huge, Japanese arena production to North America for the first time. The show is one of the final shows in a month-and-a-half long US tour. The band will continue their world domination as they head back home for their sold-out arena tour in Japan in November and European headline dates to follow in 2020. Find full live dates here.
