Update 3 (20/5): WOWOW has shared the timetables and show lengths for the first 2 parts, as well as the date for the 3rd part.
One day after the end of the shows [Show Report] and the announcement of a worldwide livestream, WOWOW has announced that it will also broadcast the “10 BABYMETAL BUDOKAN” shows. It is unclear how it will differ from the livestream BABYMETAL will be doing, but it is labeled as a “special version only for WOWOW”. It will be broadcast in 3 parts:
- 10 BABYMETAL BUDOKAN ~ Introduction ~: The first part is an Introduction, which was filmed at the January shows (DOOMSDAY – I ~ II), and will be broadcast on Sunday, May 30th for half an hour, from 9:30 PM to 10PM (JST).
- 10 BABYMETAL BUDOKAN ~ LEGEND ~: The 2nd part (DOOMSDAY – I ~ VI) will be broadcast on Saturday, June 26th, for 1 hour and 15 minutes, from 7:30 PM to 8:45 PM (JST), the same date as the BABYMETAL livestream, but an hour and a half before.
- 10 BABYMETAL BUDOKAN ~ MYTH ~: The last part (DOOMSDAY – VII ~ X) is scheduled to be broadcast on July 25th at 9:30 PM (JST).
As a reminder, WOWOW is a Japanese premium (paid) broadcast channel. It is available overseas in some markets, depending on the provider.

BABYMETAL has completed “10 BABYMETAL BUDOKAN”, a series of 10 performances at Nippon Budokan commemorating the 10th anniversary of their formation.
As the culmination of the “Final Chapter of METAL RESISTANCE”, they challenged the biggest battle in history on the stage with their “pride” that they succeeded in rewriting the status of the metal genre.
WOWOW will present this performance in three parts, including Introduction.
Date and place of recording
January, 2021 / Nippon Budokan, Tokyo
10 BABYMETAL BUDOKAN ~ LEGEND ~ description:
The final chapter of METAL RESISTANCE, the 10 performances held at Nippon Budokan will be presented in a special version only on WOWOW.Translated with DeepL
Under the concept of “METAL RESISTANCE Final Chapter”, BABYMETAL’s “10 BABYMETAL BUDOKAN” was held from January to April at Nippon Budokan in Tokyo.
It’s been about seven years since they held a solo live at the Nippon Budokan since March 2014, when they set a record for the youngest female artist ever. Fans reunited at this sacred place.
From this live, they performed the songs from their best album “10 BABYMETAL YEARS” released in December last year. DOOMSDAY – I ~ VI, which were held in January and February of 2021, will be the focus of this program.
It is a must-see to see the outstanding performance that showed the powerful metal soul and made a big page in “METAL RESISTANCE”.
Recording Date and Location
January, February, March, April, 2021 / Nippon Budokan, Tokyo
Note: it says January and February, but the correct dates are January through April.

It will be a program full of surprises and emotions that only BABYMETAL, who has been evolving day by day, could have achieved.
Please pay attention to the huge stage sets set up all over the arena taking advantage of the octagonal shape of Nippon Budokan and the gongs with the emblems symbolizing all 10 chapters of METAL RESISTANCE so far.
