Brisbane show is now sold out with limited tickets still available for Sydney and Melbourne.
Joining them on all 3 dates is Sydney alternative maestros RELIQA. 2022 was a monumental year for RELIQA with the release of their EP, I Don’t Know What I Am which had hard-hitter single Safety featuring Sean Harmanis from Make Them Suffer and performing a string of high profile shows such as Monolith Festival, Full Tilt Festival, supporting Caligula’s Horse and the main support for Thy Art Is Murder in one-night-only Brisbane show. With three tracks streamed over 1 million times on Spotify and multiple tracks featured on editorial playlists, RELIQA are a burgeoning force to be reckoned with.
BABYMETAL have become a global phenomenon since their formation and have an incredible list of accolades under their belt. They became the first Japanese artist to headline the prestigious Wembley Arena in the UK in 2016, performed at Good Things Festival as their Australian debut appearance in 2018.
With hundreds of millions of audio streams, almost a billion YouTube views, and three studio albums under their belts, BABYMETAL are an anomaly. Their concept album THE OTHER ONE will be released on March 24.
“BABYMETAL is the future of metal”, declared by Rob Halford from Judas Priest and “BABYMETAL isn’t metal. It’s theater, the Japanese pop industry deconstructing post-millennial metal and modern pop tropes and reconstituting them into a fully realized, 360-degree entertainment experience” by Metal Sucks.
Known for their high energy and electric live shows and phenomenal production, this is a tour you don’t want to miss out on!
