Not much to add over yesterday’s set at Osaka [Show Report], pretty much the same show. Differences are they switched Gimme Chocolate!! and PA PA YA!! in the set, it was live-streamed (officially) for 2 songs, and there was no delay because of the weather this time (this stage was enclosed).

Many fans were upset (especially those who got up early) because of the short livestream. WOWOW will broadcast sets from the festival in October, as they always do. Which may include more songs of BABYMETAL, as they have shown in the past.

They are still singing the “ichigo” (15th) version of Headbanger, which is the original. Many were wondering if moving forward they would use the “hatachi” (20th) after they used them at both LEGEND S and LEGEND M.

The setlist, member list, plus a few other things can be found below.

The next show is in Orlando, Florida, USA on September 4th, the first show of the US tour.

October 2019 update: WOWOW Broadcast Road of Resistance as well as alternate angles of PA PA YA!! and Gimme Chocolate and a message from SU-METAL and MOAMETAL.

This Periscope livestream has all the songs up till Distortion (but, the quality is not great, most of the time it’s just audio).




Messages from the Kami Band

Yeahhhhh!!\( B`o´H)\m/


Following yesterday, i can’t beat the heat today, and it’s 👍 the best night (‘ω’)


It was the hottest show of this year.🤘👴

It’s still a hot day, let’s think it’s a summer festival every day, so let’s go for hydration, amino acid intake, rest, sleep, eating, and doing well. 🌞

If you have heat stroke at noon, please be careful because there is a possibility of fever in the middle of the night. ‼️


TOTALFAT’s guitarist, Kuboti, says:

Summer Sonic Tokyo 🗼 RHCP is also the best, but if you want to bump up with the shred guitar of Gingin, the flow of TOTALFAT from BABYMETL is recommended, 20:15 ~ RAINBOW STAGE we are waiting for you with 🎸🔥 Mr. Ohmura who respects 🤘

I’m sweating again today.
