2020 keeps getting better for concert-goers.
Live Nation BEC-Tero has just announced that Japanese metal superstars Babymetal are set to perform at GMM Live House, CentralWorld, on March 22.
Formed in 2010 by metal producer Key Kobayashi—whose idea was to combine metal music with a Japanese girl group, a style known as kawaii-metal—the band started off with three members: lead singer Suzuka Nakamoto as “Su-Metal” (vocal and dance), Moa Kikuchi as “Moametal” (scream and dance) and Yui Mizuno as “Yuimetal” (scream and dance), who left the band in 2018.
The women kicked off with huge success in 2014. They were the youngest female act to headline the show at Nippon Budokan, before embarking on their first world tour in Paris and becoming Lady Gaga’s supporting act in her “ArtRave: The Artpop Ball” tour in the US. Their popularity continued to spread worldwide, and in 2016, they became the first Japanese band to perform in London’s Wembley Arena.
Their first album, Babymetal, has since been certified gold, with over 100,000 copies sold in Japan and debuting at number 187 on the US Billboard 200. Their second album, Metal Resistance, debuted even higher at number 39. In mid-2019 the band released their single “PA PA YA!!” featuring Thai rapper F. HERO.
Tickets go on sale now via livenation.co.th and all ThaiTicketMajor outlets. Prices start at B1,800.
