Babymetal opening at US Airways Center, Phoenix.
Doki Doki Morning
Ijime Dame Zettai
They were absolutely incredible. The set list was short, but high energy from start to finish. The band was on fire. The girls were giving it their all. Just such a great performance and I’m so happy I went.
The only thing that sucked was the crowd. You could tell the Gaga fans weren’t warming up to them. Nobody in the pit area was moving except for one or two people. Pretty damn lame. I’m pretty sure the three of us were the only ones standing in our area, jumping around, and screaming at the top of our lungs for them. Worst part was during Gimme Chocolate when the girls were trying to get the crowd to repeat back the chorus, and it was almost dead. We were screaming it back as loud as we could so it wouldn’t be so quiet.
All in all, great show. I’m hoping the next few stops they open for will be a lot higher energy than the crowd was here. I hope they know America loves them and they come back and tour on their own, headlining shows instead so they get the love they deserve.
