BABYMETAL WORLD TOUR 2018 in JAPAN performances will begin at Makuhari Messe starting October 23rd and will be ending at Kobe World Memorial Hall on the 31st. And just days before the start of these performances, BABYMETAL digitally released their new song “Starlight” while also unveiling the music video on October 19th (JST). A portion of this new song “Starlight” is included in BABYMETAL’s graphic novel Apocrypha: The Legend of BABYMETAL’s trailer.
The start of the BABYMETAL WORLD TOUR 2018 in JAPAN performances will mark the rebirth of BABYMETAL in which SU-METAL and MOAMETAL form the core.
According to BABYMETAL’s official website, since last December in Hiroshima, YUIMETAL had been absent from performing and during this time both SU-METAL and MOAMETAL as well as the entire staff team had been preparing for her awaited return. However, YUIMETAL came to a decision that she will not be performing at October’s Japan performances and that she will no longer be a part of BABYMETAL.
BABYMETAL will also be having a festival type event BABYMETAL WORLD TOUR 2018 in JAPAN EXTRA SHOW “DARK NIGHT CARNIVAL” with special guests on October 28th which will be held at Saitama Super Arena. This will be BABYMETAL’s first time to be hosting such an event and will be a special night to remember for all attendees.
