Official Venue Information For The Saitama Super Arena (METAL GALAXY WORLD TOUR IN JAPAN) Shows

As always, a week before the shows BABYMETAL has shared the official venue information for their Japan shows. They share the venue map, entry times, merch booth times, will call times, rules, and more. Read it all below.

Information about the Osaka-Jo Hall shows will be shared a week before the show.

EDIT: For those going to the first show (on the 16th), note that the Yamanote Line (loop) will be suspended between Osaki and Ueno. You would have to take other lines or go all the way around.

The Keihin Tohoku Line is a good alternative, though do note that it will also be suspended between Shinagawa and Tamachi.

This is notable as most going from Tokyo to SSA go via Ueno.

Note time change for 16th: SPECIAL GUEST “BRING ME THE HORIZON” at the Saitama Super Arena performance on November 16, 2019 (Saturday) will start at “18:00” (previously 18:30) due to production reasons.

Date: Saturday, November 16th
Doors 17:00 / Show 18:00

Date: Sunday, November 17th
Doors 15:30 / Show 17:00


Venue map translated into English (where the merch will be, where to line up/enter depending on each ticket)
  • Regular mosh pit and all seats will NOT require THE ONE ID to enter. Only SUPER mosh tickets will.
  • As soon as you pass the ticket verification terminals, you will be given another ticket with your pit block number/seat number.
  • They may restrict the entrance after the show has started.
  • We cannot keep letters or presents for members at the venue.
  • It is prohibited to film or take pictures inside the venue. If you are found doing so, staff may make delete the data and then make you leave.

Entry

Mosh pit

SUPER MOSH’SH PIT: arrive and get in your spot in line 20 minutes before opening time

MOSH’SH PIT:
Entry number (on ticket) from M1 to M1500 ⇒ 15 minutes after the opening time
Entry number (on ticket) from M1501 or later ⇒ 35 minutes after the opening time

  • You will be waiting outside, so be prepared for rain. With that said, you cannot bring an umbrella inside. I have seen in other shows, people leave them and you can pick them up (from the floor) after exiting.
  • They will have a [HAPPY MOSH’SH PIT] and [Woman’s only area] in the MOSH’SH PIT. The [HAPPY MOSH’SH PIT] is an area for people who do not wish to mosh. Note that both these areas tend to be at the far back.

Seats

For both MOSH’SH SEAT (reserved seat) and MOSH’SH SEAT (reserved seat behind the stand): there is no entry order, arrive whenever you want after doors open.
