Having immediately sold out their upcoming Saitama and Osaka arena concerts, Japan's Babymetal announced two additional dates at Chiba's Makuhari Messe set for early next year.

The shows are part of the Japan leg of Su-metal and Moametal's Metal Galaxy world tour promoting the new studio album by the same name. The two added dates are entitled Legend - Metal Galaxy and will take place Jan. 25 and 26, 2020.

The key visuals for the additional dates feature the Sun and Moon -- motifs of the Japan-only limited first edition of the upcoming album -- apparently allotted separately to each date, suggesting a differently themed stage production for each.

Babymetal have been "traveling the Metal Galaxy" since June this year, when they kicked off their current international trek at the Yokohama Arena in their home country.

They are currently on tour in the U.S., with shows earlier this week in Las Vegas on Monday (Sept. 30) and Arizona on Tuesday (Oct. 1), continuing with San Francisco on Friday (Oct. 4), and their first-ever headlining U.S. arena concert Oct. 11 at the Forum in L.A.
