BABYMETAL Rocks Paris, France

BABYMETAL opened their world tour 2014 in Paris, France at La Cigale on July 1st.

The live titled LEGEND “Y” -YUIMETAL’S 15th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION was BABYMETAL first European live and celebration of YUIMETAL`s birthday.

The set list included 13 songs overall including YUIMETAL taking the lead for Headbangeeeeerrrrr!!!!! In the opening encore.
Many Idol fans have been a little worried about how International heavy metal fans would welcome  BABYMETAL, for the most part I was not worried as European heavy metal fans have always been there for the scene, even when other countries turned their backs on the genre for whatever new kick music video stations wanted to shove down the throats of viewers. Despite their best efforts to put away heavy metal, it has survived and evolved into many sub-genres and fusion-genres and heavy metal bands worldwide know that you have to go to Europe and repay their loyalty to the genre.
If you’re still on the fence about supporting what this group has to offer, here is a small sample of what the fine folks in Paris experienced for nearly 90 minutes.
