Babymetal announce headline US tour


Babymetal have announced a headline tour of the US.

The news comes not long after the Japanese outfit confirmed their first-ever arena show in the States, which will take place at The Forum in Los Angeles on October 11.

Now they’ve revealed another 19 shows around the date in LA – and they’ll be joined by Avatar for the majority of the tour, with The Hu taking their place as special guests in Seattle and Portland.

The tour will get under way at Orlando’s Hard Rock Live on September 4 and wrap up at The Paramount Theatre in Seattle on October 16.

Tickets for the US tour will go on general sale from 10am local time on Friday (May 17).

Prior to the US tour, Babymetal will play a headline show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on July 2, where they’ll be joined by Amaranthe and Sleep Token.

Last week, Babymetal released their new single Elevator Girl, which is expected to feature on their upcoming third studio album which will be released later this year on a date still to be finalised.
