BABYMETAL just shared on social media information for the official Live Viewing of LEGEND M’s 2nd show. It will be done on Sunday, July 7th at 5:30PM (right as the actual show starts) at 40 cinemas across Japan.
This is the first Live Viewing since April 2018 for LEGEND S.
Live Viewing’s are pretty regular for BABYMETAL. Every major show they have released has been shown (LEGEND IDZ, LEGEND 1999 & 1997, Budokan, Tokyo Dome, Wembley, LEGEND S, the Trilogy, etc.), but not all live. They did do it for Makuhari Messe 2015, for example, as well as some shows in the UK (The Forum and Wembley, for example). Some others were done quickly after (the Big Fox Festival Live Viewing was done the day after the show). They even did one in Taiwan.
Their biggest was 2017’s Film Fes Tour, where they toured the country repeating all the old shows, as well as selling old merch from those shows.
This one is the most extensive, however, with 40 venues. The biggest previous ones were in the mid-20’s.
Sometimes they were even done in venues instead of cinemas, which allowed for standing/moshing.
