PHOTO REVIEW: A Night To Remember With BABYMETAL & Wargasm At Tilburg’s 013

In the heart of Tilburg’s snow-covered center, a sold-out crowd gathered after more than three years of anticipation to witness the triumphant return of BABYMETAL to the legendary 013 venue. With British nu-metal force Wargasm as direct support, the night promised an unforgettable experience.

Wargasm, the UK’s rising nu-metal stars, kicked off the evening at 8:00 PM with a high-octane set featuring tracks like Rage All Over and D.R.I.L.D.O.

At 9:10 PM, BABYMETAL took the stage, setting the venue ablaze with their signature kawaii metal fusion. The setlist, a mix of classics and newer hits, showcased the trio’s evolution, now with MOMOMETAL in their ranks.

In a swift 12-song set, including hits like Gimme Chocolate!! and Road of Resistance, BABYMETAL left the audience warmed by the collective energy of the night.
