Like metal? Like J-pop? Like songs about chocolate? Live in the New York area? You’re in luck, as Babymetal have announced that they’ll be playing New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom on Tuesday, November 4th. The band, which consists of a trio of teenage girls and a mysterious backing band, had recently played North America for the first time opening for Lady Gaga and playing at Heavy Montreal, as well as an L.A. date. While their debut album is only available in the States digitally, it’s still consistently selling, and their live show has made believers of all that have seen it so far.
No other tour dates in the States have been announced so far, but there’s one other date for the “Back to the USA/UK” tour, on November 8th at the O2 Academy in Londeon. VIP tickets for the NYC date go on sale today (3) at 10am, with general ticket sales going on sale Friday (5) at 10. Info here.
