The traffic on this blog exploded yesterday, most likely because I catched the news about the upcoming Babymetal “Live At Tokyo Dome” release very quickly. I listened to a UK radio show yesterday and a British journalist talked about these shows from the point of view that he had actually been there. He said that not only did they sell 110,000 tickets in three minutes (!), he also counted 12 mosh pits at the peak of one of these shows. In other words, this is a phenomenon that is great for Metal. Babymetal is sucking in a whole new generation of fans to this music.
And that my friends is a good thing.
