To commemorate this feat MTV plans to broadcast their precious London Wembley Arena show which was held in April of this year. This is a masterwork of a stage that you will not want to miss of this amazing band that has gone on to achieve so much again this year.
BABYMETAL member, Su-metal stated, ‘we want to thank all of you who voted for and supported us making it possible for us to receive the ‘Best Japanese album award’ and the ‘Best Metal video award’ for our music video for ‘Karate’! I am so happy that there is so much appreciation for this album that is so packed with a new side of BABYMETAL in it’.
She went on to say, ‘I am so happy that this song and the music video of ‘Karate’ was able to capture in the form of a song all that we have experienced and learned in our live performances up to this day, namely that of, <the importance of continuing to fight and challenge oneself by exceeding who you were in the past and that even if you get knocked down and feel you can’t go on, that you must stand up and fight on, DEATH!>. After the album was released and we went on to tour around the world, we met with so many fans who have continued to grow along with us. This makes us so happy even as we have had to conquer many language barriers. We want to continue to grow and develop in light of the growing number of comments from our fans who have felt this message and we hope to continue to do what we can do – to do what only we can do.’
‘BABYMETAL Live at Wembley Arena’ will be aired at 11PM (Japanese time) on the 30th of December. On the same day at 11:30 they will also broadcast, ‘BABYMETAL Videoselects.’
