BABYMETAL celebrated Su-metal’s 20th birthday with two shows Saturday and Sunday (Dec. 2-3) in her native Hiroshima. The concerts, dubbed as “rituals” opening a new era for the kawaii lead vocalist, were her first time returning to her hometown to perform with the group.
The birthday rituals were held at the Hiroshima Green Arena, and everybody in the audience was given “Three Sacred Treasures” to participate in the festivities.
