They’ve worked with rock legends around the world and Babymetal will now help out some icons on their own home turf. The Japanese female metal group have been tapped to open for Guns N’ Roses for four dates on the Japan leg of their massive reunion tour.
Babymetal member Suzuka Nakamoto (aka SU-METAL) is excited to serve as ambassador to the hard-rocking legends. "I am really happy that we've been confirmed as support on the upcoming Guns N' Roses tour,” she said in a statement. “And it's happening in Japan!! We're going to create a live performance that shows how wonderful Japan is together with everyone in the audience on that tour."
This month, Babymetal will support the Red Hot Chili Peppers in the UK. Kicking off on Jan. 2, Guns N' Roses will perform five gigs in Japan, their first visit to the country in ten years, before visiting New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Thailand and Dubai. Check out the dates below.
