The band, which consists of a trio of teenage girls and a mysterious backing band, had recently played North America for the first time opening for Lady Gaga and playing at Heavy Montreal, as well as an L.A. date. While their debut album is only available in the States digitally, it’s still consistently selling, and their live show has made believers of all that have seen it so far.
No other tour dates in the States have been announced so far, but there’s one other date for the “Back to the USA/UK” tour, on November 8th at the O2 Academy in Londeon. VIP tickets for the NYC date go on sale today (3) at 10am, with general ticket sales going on sale Friday (5) at 10. Info here.

Some serious rumor tell us that the New York concert is gonna be announced tomorrow.. but we already find the date and the venue for our BABYMETAL-HOLIC.
So, if we give a look at boxofficehero.com, the New York’s BABYMETAL concert should be: Tuesday, November 4th, 2014. The venue is: Manhattan Center Hammerstein Ballroom 311 West 34th Street, New York, NY, 10001, US at 7:00 PM.
The Hammerstein Ballroom is a two-tiered, 12,000-square-foot (1,100 m2) ballroom located within the Manhattan Center Studios at 311 West 34th Street in Manhattan in New York City. It is known for its elegant appearance and excellent acoustic design. The capacity of the ballroom is dependent on the configuration of the room; it seats 2,500 people for theatrical productions and musical performances, and several thousand for events held within a central ring. The two main balconies—which are unusually close to the ground and gently sloped—seat a total of 1,200. There are six shallow balconies which are normally used for celebrity guests. The floor slants down to the stage area to enable those in the back rows to see easily.
