I forgot when I first heard about the Japanese pop-metal group “Baby Metal.” However, I remember how much I enjoyed the sound of the juxtaposing metal music with the Japanese pop singer and cute-sy girl squeals. So, when I saw that they were touring in the United States and in a location near me, I decided that I needed to buy tickets.
I didn’t really get a picture of the people that came to the show. That said, it was a mix of people of all ages: metal heads, Japanese music fans, families (with younger children), and the curious. I opted for a seat on the balcony–not sure if the mosh pit below would have been more fun. It would have been a different experience, for sure.
The show was awesome with a mixture of their well-known songs (like “Give Me Chocolate”), metal songs, an instrumental piece, and some solo ballads. The instrumentalists were fantastic, the singing was on key, the light show was captivating, and the girls danced their hearts out.
I am so glad that I went. I would LOVE to see them perform again. Check out my Baby Metal Concert compilation video on my blog’s FB page. The quality is meh because I recorded with my phone, but it gives you a 50 second idea of what the show was like.
If you haven’t heard of them, I highly recommend checking out their songs/videos. ^_^
