Ups & Downs

Posted: November 15, 2019 in Babymetal, Classic Rock, Cool stuff, Magazines, TV & Movies

Things are moving fast in Babymetal Land. Lets deal with the bad news first. The Clockenflap Festival in Hong Kong has been cancelled. This is due to the current unrest in the city. It is the first ever Babymetal date that is being cancelled, but it is what it is. On the more positive side, “Metal Galaxy” gets a pretty fair review in Classic Rock # 268 (Queen cover), (quote) “Inside the heart of every fiercely tattooed heavy metal fan there lurks a Japanese schoolgirl” – the press loves to come up with stuff like that. And we got news from the Babymetal camp today that members of the Fan Club called The One will be able to buy super exclusive DVDs (etc) of the Yokohama Arena “Sun” shows from June 28-29 as well as the July 6-7 “Moon” (Legend M) shows from Nagoya. These can be ordered from today and will be shipped on April 1 and the really good news is that the very fact that The One is covered now for some time, should mean that the Forum show that they filmed in Los Angeles a few weeks ago might get the stamp of approval for official release everywhere. About time that they put something good out there outside of Japan. So, fingers crossed. And finally, we now know that the new Babymetal ESP guitars (E-II MF-9 and the Babymetal MF-7 Mini) is available now. This would not have happened if the 2016 Arrow guitar had not sold well so that is pretty cool. And you do not see nine and seven string guitars that often, so these guitars are special. And darned good looking too.
