Did you ever imagine this one happening? Me neither. These are two bands I would never picture doing a tour together— yet they are, albeit a small one in Japan. But that’s not all! Babymetal is also opening for the Red Hot Chili Peppers on their UK tour!
This has been a big year for the Japanese metal band; they have performed with Rob Halford, played on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and announced tours with two of the biggest bands in the world. Their following keeps growing every day, and now they will be exposed to different crowds than usual. What will be next for BABYMETAL?
The band behind the three singers is amazing. If you don’t like the vocals, take a minute to truly appreciate their music. Takayoshi Ohmura, the guitar player, is incredibly talented; he has recorded with Marty Friedman and Richie Kotzen, and he also formed his own band, Cross Hard.
BABYMETAL’s sound may be off-putting at first, as we are not used to listening to anything similar. But give it a chance, listen to their melodies and what’s being played. This band kicks ass!
What do you think of the upcoming 2017 tour with GnR and RHCP? Any URock fans in Japan and the UK going to these tours? Let us know!
