Japanese pop-metal group Babymetal will return to the UK in November for the last European show of their 2014 World Tour.

The “Gimme Chocolate!!” vocal and dance group will perform at the O2 Academy in Brixton, London, as part of their Who’s Ready for Round 2? tour.

Babymetal, whose members Yui Mizuno, Suzuka Nakamoto and Moa Kikuchi are aged just 15 and 16, gave their first UK performance at the Sonisphere Festival last month, before headlining at London’s Kentish Town Forum just two days later.

The teenage group have appeared across Europe over the summer and also supported "Born This Way" singer Lady Gaga on her US tour.

Formed in 2010, Babymetal achieved global fame after their song “Doki Doki Morning” went viral on YouTube. Their Kawaii metal style fuses j-pop and metal.

Babymetal will perform at the O2 Brixton Academy on 8 November 2014. Tickets go on sale on Wednesday at 10am. A limited number of priority tickets are also available.
