Hey guys, guess what! In December, Babymetal‘s going back to the UK, and you’ll almost definitely be able to get tickets for the shows!
I just hope you also like the Red Hot Chili Peppers!

Yep! And boy, are the feelings out there diverse; I see a lot of “well, on the one hand … but …” And that’s okay! Have your opinions about things. You probably have reasons for them. Maybe you are the world’s greatest RHCP / Babymetal crossover fan, and you live in Manchester, and this is the most exciting thing to happen in forever. Good for you!
I was going to put up a poll — who’s paying who, how large the shark being jumped might be, things like that — but I’m personally playing it straight. Not everything needs to be snarky. Lots of bands that don’t immediately make sense together wind up on tour and are just fine. They may even make new fans! I’m not sure where that opportunity exists here, but I’m also not among those being paid to figure out that side of the business.
However, I am very curious to know how you feel! And rather than responding to a setup question, just go ahead and comment away. Just don’t devolve into what started to happen in some of the Facebook threads (RIP, friendship).
And I wonder if Moametal’s been given a stay on that (virtual) execution …
And I definitely don’t care what anybody says, Mother’s Milk and Blood Sugar Sex Magik are pretty good albums and I’ll fight you if you think otherwise.
