Japanese metal sensation BABYMETAL are thrilled to announce they will be returning to Australia for their very first headline tour in June as part of their World Tour 2023.
Kicking off in Brisbane on Thursday, June 8 at the Fortitude Music Hall, the tour will make its way down the east coast to Sydney on Friday, June 9 at the Hordern Pavilion and then Melbourne on Sunday, June 11 at Margaret Court Arena.
BABYMETAL have become a global phenomenon since their formation and have an incredible list of accolades under their belt. They became the first Japanese artist to headline the prestigious Wembley Arena in the UK in 2016, performed at Good Things Festival as their Australian debut appearance in 2018 where Wall Of Sound said “BABYMETAL may have stolen the show and been the highlight of the festival” and “BABYMETAL was something out of this world” by Heavy Magazine, performed at global music festivals including Glastonbury Festival and headlined tours across the world.
With hundreds of millions of audio streams, almost a billion YouTube views, and three studio albums under their belts, BABYMETAL are an anomaly. Their concept album THE OTHER ONE will be released on March 24.
“BABYMETAL is the future of metal”, declared by Rob Halford from Judas Priest and “BABYMETAL isn’t metal. It’s theater, the Japanese pop industry deconstructing post-millennial metal and modern pop tropes and reconstituting them into a fully realized, 360-degree entertainment experience” by Metal Sucks.
Known for their high energy and electric live shows and phenomenal production, this is a tour you don’t want to miss out on!
