During 2016, got chart action in British - American charts with the new album "Metal Resistance", was the first concert for a Japanese artists at Wembley Arena in London, also achieved growth during the World Tour, which is their third time, BABYMETAL descended in the Grass Stage of the Rock In Japan Festival 2016. 


While "BABYMETAL Death" was resounding by Kami Band, the three girls appeared.  They laden even a greater experience than the time they played at Countdown Japan 15/16, huge open air stage suits well for them. Cool and cute performance. Tough sound as well. It's the intro of "Megitsune", while she was removing the Fox mask from her face "Are you ready Rock In Japan!?" emananting a cool reaction. 


Also jumped with a special call in Japanese from Su-Metal, a moment to heat up the venue. She in "KARATE" issued "Minna no koe kika sete, issho ni utatte kureru!" ("Everyone let us hear you voice, sing together with us!"). The unity of the sing along in this song was very moving. 


After this, she brushed the stage, they re-emerge with flags. The texture of the show got engraved with the flag logo which was enough to get goosebumps. Finished with "Road Of Resistance" the last call was"We are BABYMETAL, see you in September at Tokyo Dome", then they leave the stage. 


During the live, it's well understood that more and more audience gets captivated even those who went to see BABYMETAL by curiousity. Everyone, listened the rumors of their success, they enjoyed the performance as the superimpose show unfolds in front of their own eyes.
