Babymetal Announce 2019 U.S. Tour With Avatar
Earlier this year, Babymetal announced their first-ever U.S. headlining arena show and now they've announced a full U.S. tour, featuring support from theatrical Swedish metal dynasty Avatar.
The tour will span over one month, stretching from Sept. 4 through Oct. 16, dotting the major cities in the country. Avatar will drop off the tour after the Oct. 4 show and there is a one week gap in between shows for Babymetal. Alongside their arena gig (Oct. 11) they'll be making festival appearances before capping off the run with support from The HU.

He looks forward to this unique opportunity that he assures will be of great benefit to everyone involved, especially all the soon to be Citizens of Avatar Country who are yet to hear His Highness' Royal orchestra."
