    WOW that is such good news for BABYMETAL and UK! Don't they need a rest though? The ladies must be absolutely exhausted.

    On a side note. how does ANY band go on stage after BABYMETAL? Good luck, guys. I used to love you, but BM is going to blow your socks (!) off the stage. You are going to seem so boring! Flea is going to have to do his flea stuff but pumped up 200%. LOL. Sorry guys, this is just a bad situation for you. BM is a headline act. You are a support act. This will be apparent after your first show. Pray they don't play for 90 minutes, THEN bust out IDZ, or Resistance, showing they have unearthly stamina.

    You're absolutely right. I had the luck to see BM live in Cologne in June, and now I find EVREY other stage act boring, no matter how good or exciting the music is. But there's simply nothing happening on stage. Poor RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS...

    Also: The show to see is MANCHESTER!!! If any city on Earth knows how to dance to rock music, it's MANCHESTER... Joy Division, HAPPY MONDAYS.. you know Shaun Ryder is going to be right there headbanging hard! If I knew one single person there I'd go to both shows (hint hint!! I'll pay the tix of any Manchester fan who can keep me out of trouble, I'm not joking. Floor seats. Both Nights.. Contact me here. AND - I'll sort YOU out in NYC, when BM come back!.)

    Glasgow. Birmingham, Manchester. This is just amazing. I want to tour with BM so bad! UK (and Ireland!) has the best rock fans on Earth. They are gonna party so hard. then BM is gonna feed off that, causing the parting to get harder... UK may just totally melt into the ocean.

    RCHPs show has the well-deserved reputation for being high-energy, I've seen them twice, but back in the 90's. They own the stage, and can get the crowd pumped, but c'mon. RHCP has one Flea. BM is Fleas from top to bottom! The hair scrunchy designer is a Flea. The caterer is a Flea. The whole BM crew is like.. 150 Fleas, all on a mission to get you headbanging.

    I can't wait to see the coming interviews with RHCP about what they think about BM's live show.

    (Scene: Glasgow, SSE Final SuMetal scream, after 90 minutes of kicking everybody's butt who's ever been on a stage before,)

    Crowd: BABYMETAL!!
    Anthony K: WE ARE, sooooooooooo screwed right now. What do we open with? Power of the Equality maybe? Higher Ground? Can Chad Smith play Amen breaks super fast for 5 minutes maybe.. then we'll have Flea jump off a quadruple Marshall stack? Bring us a few barrels of Red Bull please! Wow you guys remember the time Fishbone opened for Simon and Garfunkel? Not good. Not good at all. People got crazy. We are boned.
