Q8: What was the toughest overseas tour or live?
Moa: Kansas performance on the first day of last year’s US tour was hard. It was very sad that their consciousness and eyes were different from our performance. It was an event that I thought, “Why do we here?”

Q13: You were taking photos with Billie Eilish at Glastonbury, did you have some talk?
Moa: I like Billie Eilish for some time, so I was happy to take pictures. She praised our costume, “Your costume is cute.” Next time I see her, I will do my best to make her interested in ourselves (laughs).

Q17: What English phrases have you recently learned?”
Moa: “You’re on fire!”

Q22: MOAMETAL, you challenged to play guitar in live, how did you challenge it? Moa: Elementary 2nd or 3rd year? I learned to play guitar at that time, after junior high school, I was too busy to go to the guitar class, but sometimes I played at home.

I am sorry Moa felt so sad at Kansas City last year. It sure wasn’t from me. I went there from Chicago to see them and didn’t even notice their original third singer was gone. She did GJ, and the theater erupted. I wish I could apologize for those bad consciousness and those bad eyes … but then again, they weren’t really Babymetal fans and still aren’t.

    Just to be clear, SU-METAL explained in the previous PMC interview that it was their thoughts before the show, the fear of not showing up with Yui, but at the show itself nothing bad ended up happening 🙂
