Today, Japanese kawaii metal band BABYMETAL announced their fall headline tour across North America, with support from Scene Queen on select dates. Produced by Live Nation, the 15-date tour kicks off on Tuesday, November 5 in Orlando, FL at the Hard Rock Orlando, with additional stops in Charlotte, Madison, New York, Oklahoma City and more before wrapping up on Tuesday, December 3 in Anaheim, CA at the House of Blues. 

Tickets will be available starting with Citi and American Express presales in select markets beginning Tuesday, June 4 at 11 a.m. ET. Additional presales will run throughout the week ahead of the general on sale beginning Friday, June 7 at 10 a.m. local time at livenation.com.

BABYMETAL recently collaborated with German electronicore band Electric Callboy on a new song titled, “RATATATA,” which was released May 23. The song masterfully fuses the signature styles of both bands, seamlessly blending their worlds and pushing the music to exhilarating new limits. The song was an immediate international hit, racking up over 5 million streams on Spotify in the first week. The music video amassed over 7 million views to date and was Trending on YouTube in over a dozen countries.

In April 2016, BABYMETAL became the first Japanese artists to ever headline at the prestigious Wembley Arena in the UK. In June 2019, they performed at one of the world’s largest music festivals, Glastonbury Festival, and their appearance at this festival made headlines around the world. That same year in September, BABYMETAL embarked on their METAL GALAXY WORLD TOUR. On October 11th, 2019 BABYMETAL had a worldwide release of their 3rd album METAL GALAXY and on that same day, they had their first U.S. headlining arena show at The Forum in Los Angeles, California. METAL GALAXY ranked No. 13 on the US Billboard Top 200 (Albums Chart), largely surpassing their own record of their previous album, and ranked No.1 on the Top Rock Albums Chart for the first time ever as an Asian artist. In the UK Official Charts, the album consecutively ranked in the Official Albums Chart Top 20 from their previous album and ranked No.1 on the Rock & Metal Albums Chart for the first time in history as a Japanese artist.

In 2021, over a four month period from January to April, they accomplished a total of 10 headline performances at the Nippon Budokan called 10 BABYMETAL BUDOKAN. After a 2-year hiatus from live performances, BABYMETAL were unsealed for BABYMETAL RETURNS – THE OTHER ONE – where they performed at Makuhari Messe.

Riding the success of last year’s concept album “THE OTHER ONE”, Dance Metal sensation BABYMETAL hosted the first edition of their very own festival FOX_FEST last month, featuring exclusive appearances by ELECTRIC CALLBOY, POLYPHIA and BILMURI. Always pushing boundaries and testing the limits of metal music, BABYMETALare no strangers to collaborations, with recent partnerships including BRING ME THE HORIZON, TOM MORELLO and LIL UZI VERT. Before coming to the US in November, the band will be circling Europe this summer on their festival run, including a main stage appearance at the UK’s DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL.
