BABYMETAL's Front Line Invasion

Hatsune Miku fans who couldn’t catch one of Lady Gaga’s first 12 United States appearances for her current ArtRave tour must be disappointed since it was the only chance for Americans to see Miku’s holographic concert since Mikunopolis at Anime Expo 2011, which sold out in less than a day.

Fear not fans of our virtual idol, for they have given us yet ANOTHER chance to see her in all of her digital glory. As mentioned in our latest podcast, there will be another Hatsune Miku live concert in Los Angeles on October 11th and 12th at the Nokia Theatre, tickets can be found here:

But what’s in store for us now since Lady Gaga has retired both her Hatsune Miku and Crayon Pop intros? BABYMETAL

Much like that Chinese/Japanese/Vietnamese/Korean fusion restaurant down the road that you eat with the mindset “ignorance is bliss”, BABYMETAL is Japan’s attempt to fuse their booming J-pop industry with hard rock tones and themes. i

Sore! Sore! Sore!

I appreciate Lady Gaga’s attempts to shove Japanese pop culture down our throats, but I’m afraid if it gets too popular then plane tickets to Japan will skyrocket, and those fares are already well above my pay-grade.

BABYMETAL ii will open for Gaga on the following dates/locations:

  • ┬áJuly 30 – Phoenix, AZ @ US Airways Center
  • August 1 – Las Vegas, NV @ MGM Grand Garden Arena
  • August 2 – Stateline, NV @ Harveys Outdoor Arena
  • August 4 – Salt Lake City, UT @ EnergySolutions Arena
  • August 6 – Denver, CO @ Pepsi Center

The opening acts for her future tour dates have not been announced, so maybe BABYMETAL will stick around a bit longer, but we’ll have to wait for confirmation from Gaga herself.

For those of you who wish to see BABYMETAL but not a big fan of Lady Gaga, they are performing a solo concert on July 27th at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, tickets can be found here:
