BABYMETAL Saitama’s “Big FOX Festival in Japan” 2 Days, looked like a blazing delight

Rockin On published a brief report of BABYMETAL's performances at Saitama Super Arena for "Big FOX Festival in Japan" on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. Check the report translated below! 

 

BABYMETAL at Saitama Super Arena "blazing delight", Rockin' On report

The passion and delight at the Saitama Super Arena was packed with magnificent and happy scenic view. Following the live house performances through the whole "Five FOX Festival in Japan", "Tama Ari" (Saitama Super Arena) and Osaka Jo Hall "2 Days" they will held it on the scale of "Big FOX Festival in Japan" to be exact, which symbolizes what the three are ready to give to all. 

 

When I saw them at the "Five FOX Festival in Japan" at the "Gold Festival" held at a live house, I remember seeing juvenile spirts boys and girls in the same age as the BABYMETAL girls attending. 

 

But then when I was watching today's stage the second day at Tama Ari, the amount of heat I felt for rock in my 40s was like I was in my teen 20s, now and with what BABYMETAL expressed without any error everybody was certainly feeling like that. In such horizon BABYMETAL is standing. My heart got warm and fast hearbeat because of that. 

 

Also at the recent Summer Sonic's Marine Stage they finally moved up from the small stages to the stadium stage, and it was the best, was like an unquestionable unique one-man where you could hear the roar of souls united at the venue.

BABYMETAL “The FOX GOD Army Rises” at Zepp DiverCity, feature on Metal Hammer

BABYMETAL "Five FOX Festival" White Festival has been featured in the new issue of Metal Hammer. The performance at Zepp DiverCity on July 26. Check the feature including comments from Su-Metal and picture from the latest issue in the following post. 

 

BABYMETAL "Five FOX Festival" at Zepp DiverCity featured on Metal Hammer Magazine

"The FOX GOD Army Rises"

Proving once more that they're one of the most unique bands to ever hit our world, BABYMETAL held the first ever Five FOX Festival over nine dates across Japan this summer. With each date having different rules for attendance that included male-only, female-only, teens-only and as in this shot taken from one of two shows at Tokyo's DiverCity Plaza, a corpsepaint dress code, it was a chance for Su-Metal, Yuimetal and Moametal to do something a little different. 

 

"Because the theme for all five events are all different, the audience was completely different ech time, and seeing these changes have been extremely fun for us!" says Su-Metal. "What was really interesting about the audience changing every time was that, based on age and gender, the reaction was completely different. I really hope we can do more of these events in the future." 

 

We can imagine what bonkers stuff they come up with next, quite frankly.

In this tour, BABYMETAL held male only "Black Festival", women only "Red Festival", teenagers only "Gold Festival", elders and school students "Silver Festival" while today performed "White Festival" with only people wearing corpse paint in Osaka. Fans who gathered featured originality in their corpse paitings. 

 

Following a video on the screens, the sound of the Kami Band appeared at the venue. When the curtain covering the stage was took off, BABYMETAL and Kami Band appeared. The three members started the live with "BABYMETAL Death". Then moved into "META! Taro" incorporating the Viking Metal in the second song, the cheers during "META!" and sing a long showed the sense of unity at the venue. 

 

Once the three girls left the stage, the Kami Band showed each skills. When BABYMETAL came again to the stage the audience go crazy showing off "Catch Me If You Can" with the "hide and seek" as motif. The Su-Metal sang her solo number "Amore" followed by Yuimetal and Moametal who sang "GJ!". The audience was fascinated. 

 

After the three were again together on stage to perform "Syncopation" which is a combination of Melodic Metal. Following "Megitsune" where Yuimetal and Moametal showed off smiles to Su-Metal who shared her pleasure of meeting the fans, "We are so happy to see you!". In a sprint continued with "Gimme Chocolate" and "Ijime, Dame, Zettai". The last song was "Road Of Resistance" where Su-Metal sang a long with the audience while Yuimetal and Moametal followed the big chorus. The three girls who performed 10 songs showed off a last Kitsune Sign and left the stage with "See you!"
