A total 20,000 fans gathered for this 2-day concert. During the first day titled “Akai Yoru LEGEND ‘Kyodai Corset Matsuri’ ~Tenkaichi Metal Budokai Final~“, they performed 13 songs without any MC segment or encore.
The second day was titled “Kuroi Yoru LEGEND ‘DOOMSDAY’ ~Shokan no Gi~“, for which they performed 15 songs including their major debut song “Ijime, Dame, Zettai” and 2nd single “Megitsune“. The last song was “Headbangeeeeerrrrr!!“, and the members and the audience shook the venue together with their head banging.
During the concert, it was announced that they would hold their first concert in Europe in this summer as YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL’s birthday event in late June or early July 2014!
