I bought the tickets for their Los Angeles show this October and
this will be the first time I get to see them. I’ve been a fan of theirs since
the beginning and I would listen to their songs and watch their videos
to pass the time while deployed in Afghanistan.
(I had no internet so I had to keep re-listening/re-watching the same stuff I had saved )
What makes this special is, during this time a lot of my other fellow
Marines warmed up to Babymetal as well. I mean it was only a matter of time,
I played that shit daily. So both country boys from the Deep South to gangsters
from the hoods of Baltimore were eventually making Babymetal references
like “GIVE ME CHOCOLATE!!!” When opening up our MREs on patrols.
I guess this concert is really special for me, since they kept me
sane during some of the worst times of my life.
The only thing that really sucks and pains me a bit about this whole thing is that some of guys
I knew would have loved to see them live as well, sadly never made it back from Afghanistan.
