The first show of the US tour brought many changes! Elevator Girl (English ver.) was played live for the first time! Kagerou also got some changes, it is no longer a Su-solo song, and was opened wit ha Kami solo! And while we are talking about the Kami Band… it appears the line up is entirely new. Not just that, it seems that they may be foreigners.
A full article will follow. But for now, it appears one of the guitarists was Chris Kelly, “Darth Vader” from Galactic Empire, who opened for BABYMETAL last year in Japan.

Original Article with Updates
BABYMETAL’s largest US Tour is finally here! And it didn’t come easy, being threatened for the past week by a Hurricane. But BABYMETAL has just re-confirmed that it will be happening. With that said, I do pass my thoughts to those in the Bahamas, and all affected areas. Also reminding people that although it will go on, especially to those travelling, please be careful of changing conditions, especially on the road.
This page will be updated with more information on the show as we get it (newer things at the top). See all the previous 2019 show reports here.
Show has started!!!
Setlist (so far):
Headbanger mic stand/stick + Megitsune mask:
Avatar has ended. Set lasted 38 minutes. BABYMETAL up in 20 minutes:
Avatar has started:
Fans got in early:
They report that the flag was not sold today (due to Hard Rock rules, flags are not allowed inside).
VIP 1 (The Chosen One) items: VIP laminate, 2 Metal straws (one has the BM logo, the other says “BABYMETAL” on it), pipe/straw cleaner, and a bag.
VIP 2 items: VIP Laminate, a bag, and a coozie.
Kami Band speculation:
- Ohmura: We know he is busy
- Isao: just posted a few videos, clearly in Japan, but he could have had them saved and posted from the US…
- BOH: hasn’t posted in 2 days, I’d figure he’s there
- Hideki: Doesn’t post much, but he was in Tokyo last night.
- Leda: Doesn’t post much, so hard to know.
- Yusuke: stopped posting a few days ago…
Wednesday – 10AM, 6 people in line:
Tuesday: This was the venue Tuesday morning. On Wednesday, as the Hurricane passes near the coast, it will be rainy and windy, but not Hurricane level, thankfully.
Last time BABYMETAL was in Orlando in 2017 with the Red Hot Chili Peppers:
