Like the divine wind blown from the Fox God’s nostrils, Babymetal blustered into Los Angeles on their world tour in support of their second album “Metal Resistance”. I was very fortunate to catch Babymetal on their last visit to the City of Angels in 2014, and the Fox God smiled upon me again with tickets to this July 15, 2016 performance. From that performance, Babymetal’s reputation incredibly grew into the worldwide phenomenon that even my mother acknowledges. This time around, I took @KsLeep9391 and another friend with me to experience Babymetal. Now, although I didn’t write about it I had a great time at the Fonda Theater in 2014. Needless to say, I anticipated another performance from the one-time Sakura Gakuin Heavy Metal Club.
I arrived in line at the Wiltern Theater at around 6:00 pm. This is much earlier than I would ever arrive for a typical concert at the venue. General admission tickets for a group with a crazy fandom warrants a “better-safe-than-sorry” attitude. The VIP line extended to the west and around the corner of the venue’s grand entrance, while the regular line made its way east wrapping around the corner. I took a few minutes to visit with twitter friends @Flypflop, @boykunnn, and @tenkeiwlfrye in the VIP line before I made it to the end of the regular line. I’m a regular guy.
