Babymetal history

Got the “Babymetal World Tour 2014” Limited Edition of the first Babymetal CD on import from Japan yesterday (see April 1 post for details), and it was good fun to watch the bonus DVD. Apart from the early videos (which are good to own), the real prize on this release are the five tracks from one of the Summer Sonic 2013 concerts they did in August that year. Now when I bought this, I was kind of hoping that it would be the Osaka show (the outdoors one), because it is famous for having Lars Ulrich watching them from the wings (which meant that he had to make a bit of an effort to even get there, this being the smallest stage of that day and Metallica performed elsewhere on the site that night). What you actually get on this release though is the Tokyo show, which was an indoors event. Not sure if these songs were all they got to play on that night, but I guess 30 minutes at a big festival is pretty fair for a new outfit. The place is packed though and the girls are super happy at the end when they get to their “We are…” (Su-metal) “…Babymetal!” (Yuimetal and Moametal responding together with the crowd). Very entertaining performance, they were quite professional at this stage even though they were so young. Wowow filmed this gig so I guess it was aired on television in Japan at the time. Not sure if the Osaka gig was filmed but I really hope it was.

Good addition to the ever growing collection.
