Japan's BABYMETAL announced a solo-headlining concert at The Forum in L.A., set for Oct. 11.

Back in 2016, the heavy metal idols became the first Japanese act to perform a solo-headlining show at the SSE Arena in Wembley, the day after they released their hit album METAL RESISTANCE.

The upcoming L.A. concert will be Su-metal and Moametal's second arena show outside of Japan, and their first in the U.S. Tickets went on sale Friday (April 26). 

Earlier this month, BABYMETAL announced that fans could expect a new album coming this year. The duo will release a new single, called "Elevator Girl," digitally May 10.
