The band's two streams will be airing on April 10 and 11 at 8pm JST (which is 12pm BST), with the first night showing BABYMETAL's Red Night performance from the Tokyo Dome on the Legend Of Resistance tour in 2016, and the second stream showing the Black Night.

Discussing performing live with Kerrang! on the recent UK leg of their METAL GALAXY tour, MOAMETAL enthused: “I’m always excited about going onstage, as I’m eager to know what kind of audience is waiting for us. When I hear the fans making noise while we’re backstage, impatient thoughts like, ‘I want to see all of you as soon as I can!’ go through my mind.”

Explaining how latest album METAL GALAXY has helped shaped their show, SU-METAL added, “Each song has its own unique colour, so it’s entertaining watching the differences in our fans’ reactions when we perform. I feel that this album has further widened the range of what BABYMETAL is all about.”
