On this occasion, the first generation unit, SU-METAL and MOAMETAL, summoned the Fox God at the end of the concert, and then, declaring the new generation of BABYMETAL that welcomed MOMOMETAL as the third member.
The new chapter of BABYMETAL proceeded with the second part of the concert the day after, where the new three-member lineup opened with the song METAL KINGDOM. Embraced by fans’ enthusiasm, the members announced their commitment to expressing their unique music that soars beyond language and genre.
MOMOMETAL has participated in BABYMETAL’s activities since 2019 as part of the “Avengers”, a unit of backup dancers who would rotate to fill in the void that former member YUIMETAL left behind.
