December 16, 2016
Japanese pop-metal sensation BABYMETAL joined RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS on stage Wednesday night (December 14) at the Arena in Manchester, England for a performance of "Nobody Weird Like Me" from the former band's 1989 album "Mother's Milk". Check out fan-filmed video footage of the performance below.
BABYMETAL just completed a seven-date U.K. tour as the support act for RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS. The J-pop teen metallers have taken the world by storm since their formation in 2010. Their latest album, "Metal Resistance", peaked at number fifteen on the U.K. album chart, the highest position reached by a Japanese band.
BABYMETAL released a new 13-track live album, "Live At Wembley", on December 9 via earMUSIC/Edel. A digital version will be made available on December 30. With a carefully selected track listing, the CD captures the spectacular performance recorded at BABYMETAL's first-ever U.K. arena show, "Babymetal World Tour 2016 Kicks Off At The SSE Arena, Wembley", which took place in London on April 2. The show saw BABYMETAL become the first Japanese artist in history to perform a headline show at The SSE Arena, Wembley. This concert garnered an attendance of 12,000 people, where BABYMETAL also broke the merchandise sales record of the venue, creating history once again.
The breakout all-girl-fronted Japanese heavy metal/teen-pop hybrid group features 18-year-old Su-Metal and 17-year-olds Yuimetal and Moametal, backed by a four-piece band.
BABYMETAL made its U.S. late-night TV debut on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" in April, performing "Gimme Chocolate" off their debut album.
