Japanese girls rock band Scandal Talks About BABYMETAL on J-MELO (NHK World).
The day after BABYMETAL concert in Chicago, Scandal is playing at Anime Central Chicago.
SCANDAL is an all girl Japanese pop-rock band from Osaka, Japan. Formed in August 2006, SCANDAL consists of HARUNA (lead vocals, backup guitar), MAMI (lead guitar, backup vocals), TOMOMI (bass, backup vocals), and RINA (drums, backup vocals), who all met attending the same voice and dance school in Osaka.
Since their major debut in 2008, SCANDAL has skyrocketed to the tops of the Oricon charts and became the fastest girl band to ever perform at the Nippon Budokan since debuting. Some of their anime tie-ins include songs featured in “Bleach,” “Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood,” “Star Driver,” and “Pokemon,” among others. The SCANDAL WORLD TOUR 2015 “HELLO WORLD” will take the girls through Japan, Europe, Asia, Mexico, and the United States, with Anime Central being one of their stops.
SCANDAL will be playing Friday evening at the Rosemont Theatre, located across the street and less than a block south of the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. Tickets will not be required for the concert, but attendees must show their Anime Central badges at the door to gain access. There will also be a small number of premium seat tickets available for advance purchase. Premium seat tickets will give purchasers assigned seating in the sections closest to the stage on the main floor. General admission audience (those without tickets) will be allowed to fill in to any open, non-reserved seat, including the entire balcony, upon entry. More information about premium seat tickets will follow.
