Video: BABYMETAL Performs In San Francisco

Chiaki of the "Metal Moment" podcast has uploaded video footage of BABYMETAL's July 14 performance at The Regency Ballroom San Francisco, California. Check out the clip below.

The breakout all-girl-fronted Japanese heavy metal/teen-pop hybrid group featuring 18-year-old Su-Metal and 16-year-olds Yuimetal and Moametal, backed by a four-piece band, slated to perform their first-ever Tokyo Dome concert on Monday, September 19, recently announced that it will play another show at the same venue on September 20. The two-day event will be known as "Babymetal World Tour 2016 Legend - Metal Resistance - Red Night & Black Night". The attendance over the two days is likely to be 110,000 people, marking the largest number in the history of BABYMETAL's headline shows.

BABYMETAL's new album "Metal Resistance", released simultaneously worldwide on April 1, ranked No.15 on the U.K. official chart, the highest rank in the history of Japanese artists, as well as charting in the Top 40 on the U.S. Billboard chart, being the first Japanese artist in 53 years to have made the charts since Kyu Sakamoto. The 12-track second full-length CD, featuring tracks "Road Of Resistance", "Karate" and "The One", is available as a standalone CD, vinyl and limited-edition bundle package.

Following the release of the official video for the new album's lead single "Karate", BABYMETAL unveiled the second video for the new album, for the song "The One". The seven-minute live video features singer/dancers Su-Metal, Moametal and Yuimetal performing within a triangular enclosure that's suspended above an arena-size crowd at Yokohama Arena in Japan on the final date of the 2015 world tour.

Since the announcement of the their concert at Tokyo Dome marking the end of their third world tour, pre-sales took off with overwhelming response from fans, hence the decision to add a second date.

BABYMETAL made its U.S. late-night TV debut on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" in April, performing "Gimme Chocolate" off their debut album.
