BABYMETAL performed at Rock on the Range in Columbus, Ohio on May 20, 2018. They are the first Japanese artists to headline the Zippo Encore Stage and marks their first return to the festival since their performance back in 2015.
The girls rocked to a sold-out crowd of 15,000. This is during their ongoing 2018 world tour which began on May 8th in Kansas City and is taking them from the southern part of America to the mid-west, with many of the shows in cities they are performing at for the first time also selling out.
BABYMETAL are in the seventh chapter of their Metal Resistance, with performances theme on the mysterious ‘Chosen Seven’―seven chosen metal spirits of the dark side. A massive crowd drew to the stage to see BABYEMTAL return as headliners again to Rock on the Range for the first time in three years.
The show began with the members stepping out in helmets and wielding staves to the build of In The Name Of before performing their new song Distortion.
Fans went full throttle in crowd surfing and participating in all-and-response to the tune of BABYMETAL classics such as Megitsune, Gimme Choco!! and KARATE. The epic performance elicited countless cheers from the crowd as it rolled through into a grand climax.
