Back then they were still a trio before Yuimetal left the band last year due to poor health.
Asked what her favourite song was on Metal Resistance, Babymetal’s second studio album, she said: “Meta Taro is my favourite song.
“We weren’t able to perform this song at the festival but it’s our first time tackling Viking Metal.
“I think it’s a song that everyone could sing and dance together so I’d like to enjoy this song with everyone at our show.”
On how Su-metal’s love of heavy metal began, she said: “It started when I saw many other bands performing.”

“It is music that helps you express your emotions and feelings.”
On performing at Wembley, she said: “I was very nervous, but as the show went on I was glad that we were able come together with the audience.
“I was very moved when I saw many people holding up their national flags when we were performing the English version of THE ONE.”
