It’s pretty much the same info as the previous lottery (the results of which will be announced this Saturday). Same as that lottery, this one is also not THE ONE members only, but we have yet to see if foreigners are allowed to enter as this one hasn’t started yet. They do allow credit card purchase, but again, could be only Japanese cards. Since it’s on the same website, it’s likely that foreigners will be able to enter.

Update: Foreigners will have a hard time to enter, as they need an account. And to create one, they need a Japanese phone number.

Update 2: Seems foreigners can enter the Amuse lottery. You need to create an A!Smart (A!ID) account for free, then it requires paying ¥300 for 1 month membership to Amuse mobile, you have to choose a prefecture in Japan where you “live in”, and it doesn’t ask for phone number or address or anything. After that you may proceed just like the 2nd lottery.

Lottery Details

From: Friday, August 16th at 10AM (Japan time)
Until: Sunday, August 25th at 11:59PM (Japan time)
Lawson Link
Amuse link

  • It’s all in Japanese, so I’d recommend using a browser with built-in translation (like Google Chrome).
  • Choose to pay with credit card, choose the 2nd link (for each show). And when they ask delivery method, choose convenience store pick up, NOT delivery.
  • When asked to input your name, you have to put it in Full-width, so use this converter.

  • If you enter right now or before the deadline, it is the same thing. No need to rush.
  • As this is a lottery, remember that it’s possible you can lose.
  • If you win, you cannot refuse your ticket, you must pay for it (if you don’t your name will be “blacklisted”). Please only enter if you know you can go, as they are hard to get.
  • Information on pick up, merch and entry will be shared a week before the shows.
  • If you have any issues email Lawson Ticket Information Desk (Include your Name, Reservation Number and/or Phone Number when making an inquiry.)

Here is a guide I made to enter the Yokohama Arena and LEGEND M lotteries. It’s pretty much the same, just use a built-in translator (like Chrome has) to translate the page automatically, as this time it’s only in Japanese.

Thanks for the news – and clarification about foreigners having a hard time to enter! Do you know if there will be a regular ticket sale as well… so people like me from outside japan have a chance to buy tickets? Was it possible at previous concerts?

I’m sorry to say that there may be no other sales for foreigners. The previous 2 lottery rounds allowed foreigners to enter.

There are fans (on Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) that have been exchanging/selling at cost extra tickets. Otherwise you could try using proxy services to enter/buy tickets for you, for a fee. There are a few in the BABYMETAL in Japan guide, linked above.

For next time, your best bet is becoming a THE ONE member and entering the first (most likely to win) and second lotteries (if allowed to enter).
