Walking upon the Ogden Theatre this past Friday one would have thought a band like Slayer or Iron Maiden may have been playing. The demographic ranged from grown men dressed in metal garb to young girls dressed in the latest fashion trends seen in Asia. Babymetal has been on our radar for a minute and they have toured with the likes of Lady Gaga, Metallica, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers.
The live show is something to see as members of the group carefully choreograph every dance move backed by a heavy metal array of musicians(Kami Band). You are almost lost in the performance forgetting it’s an actual metal show for a second to admire the precision and amazing theatrics taking place in front of your eyes. Some may argue that the performance is a novelty gimmick when in reality it is a force of nature that has the band continuing to sell out shows all over the world.
We were pretty impressed by not only the performance but by the fan engagement during the show, not only were people banging their heads but we were dodging crowd surfers in the photo pit. If you ever get a chance to see Babymetal (BABYMETAL) do not hesitate…..trust us.
