As with all larger releases, BABYMETAL will be holding special events for the release date of their next album, the “BEST ALBUM”. There will be a special “Photo Spot” with a larger poster to take photos with. And they will also be giving out special prizes to purchasers of the new album who are luck enough to win them. All of this will happen at multiple Tower Records stores across Japan.
This event also coincides with the BABYMETAL Advertising Manger event. On 12/26 (Sat.), the “Bone Face Manager” will visit these stores for a “crowning ceremony” where he will present fans that comply with the requested attire with a real “bone-face” mask.
The main stores, such as Shibuya and Shinjuku in Tokyo, always tend to have something extra as well to display (outfits, a larger stand, photos, etc.).
The “Photo Spot” will be available from from Tuesday, December 22nd.
Those that buy one of the applicable items listed below at the Tower Records they visit will get a scratch off lottery sticker for each applicable purchase. These will be available on Saturday, December 26th and Sunday, December 27th.
They can then scratch it off and win one of 2 prizes:
- Prize A: Cleaner Cloth
- Prize B: Friction pen
