Since BABYMETAL started to play overseas back in 2012 at the Anime Festival Asia in Singapore on November 10 (details here), the band perfomed in Asia, Europe and North America.
Their performance in Mexico will be the first in Latin America. Mexico fan base is one of the biggest communities in Latin America followed by Brazil, Peru and Argentina.
BABYMETAL will play at Circo Volador in Mexico City next May 9 (get your tickets here!). The confirmation of the rumor got almost viralized in the mexican media. From entertainment sites to music sites, but also Anime sites are doing a coverage of the first BABYMETAL show for the Latin American community.
Very important sites from Mexico featured the event, sites like:

By far, the Mexican media coverage of the BABYMETAL World Tour in Mexico City, is much better than the USA media coverage of the first BABYMETAL visit for BABYMETAL World Tour 2014 at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, actually USA media was focused on Lady Gaga ArtRave Tour and BABYMETAL as support band more than the World Tour.
Mexican media isn't succulent in terms of information compared with Kerrang Magazine or Metal Hammer which are very known wolrdwide mainly in United States and United Kingdom, but the Mexican media is massive in terms of quantity of posts. European media and mainly United States media should take this as an example of how to promote a band like BABYMETAL.
