BABYMETAL has announced 2 shows for their post-hiatus return! BABYMETAL last played at Budokan in Tokyo, Japan from January to April 2021.

This set of shows will take place in the Makuhari Messe International Exhibition near Tokyo, Japan. There are 3 ticket types: MOSH’SH PIT, MOSH’SH PIT and the member’s-only SUPER MOSH’SH PIT. Pre-order starts in a few hours.

  • Dates: January 28th and 29th, 2023
  • Venue: Makuhari Messe International Exhibition (near Tokyo, Japan)
  • Times: January 28th: OPEN 4 PM / START 6 PM JST – January 29th: OPEN 3 PM / START 5 PM JST

Tickets for Foreigners

The only official way to get tickets (without a Japanese phone number) is to enter the foreigner lottery.

THE OTHER ONE – DIGITAL GALLERY post mentions “There will be an advance ticket registration for those who live overseas.”, and the special website for the shows mentions that details for an overseas pre-order lottery will be announced later on this website.

Details aren’t out yet regarding the date or requirements, but in the past one had to be a member of THE ONE to enter these. The current equivalent is THE OTHER ONE, to become a member, you need to buy THE OTHER ONE – BLACK BOX to get the access code. But do note it hasn’t yet been announced that this is a requirement this time, this is just how it used to work in the past.

So is it enough if I preorder “THE OTHER ONE” (A!SMART Limited Edition “BLACK ALBUM) to get access to the ticket sale or do I have to buy the THE OTHER ONE – BLACK BOX aswell to become THE OTHER ONE member and ger access to the tickets? How do I get the highest possibility to get tickets from overseas?

    I will be able to investigate more as the week goes on. But so far the only thing we know for sure is they are planning a foreigner lottery. When and how it will work is yet to be seen.

    Sadly, they also haven’t said if the BLACK CODE is required. If I had to make a guess at the moment, I think they will not be related (as in, I think the black code will only work for Japanese residents/phone owners). But… it’s not extremely expensive and it’s possible it might be useful.

    All we know for sure now is thar becoming a THE OTHER ONE member (by getting the BLACK BOX) is the only way for a foreigner to get tickets outside of resale.
