When BABYMETAL descended upon Sterling Heights, MI, no one was prepared for the eruption that was about to unfold. Playing at the Michigan Lottery Amphitheatre, this kawaii metal sensation didn’t just put on a show; they orchestrated a full-blown spectacle that had everyone in the entranced.
Currently sweeping through cities in a whirlwind tour to support their new release, “The Other One,” BABYMETAL has been wooing the crowd with live renditions of their latest songs. If you haven’t given a listen to their new album yet, you’re missing out; it’s a smorgasbord of new sounds and influences that reflect the band’s evolution. Fans at the Sterling Heights show were treated to a phenomenal performance of their latest single “METALI!!,” which features guitar work from none other than Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine.
The stage was a living, breathing canvas of colors, lights, and backdrops from BABYMETAL’s unique universe. Imagine a kaleidoscope but amped up with LED panels, intricate costumes, and dramatic lighting. From ethereal cloudscapes to pyrotechnic splashes, each set piece seemed to align perfectly with the mood of the song they were performing. It was a visual feast that complemented the experience, making it an all-encompassing show.
No BABYMETAL show is complete without mentioning their on-point choreography. This was a dance display that could put a Broadway production to shame. Seamless, kinetic, and timed to the millisecond, their moves hit every beat, and you could tell each step was a piece of a much larger story they were narrating through their performance.
