The Japanese metal troupe finished a stint supporting the Chilis on their UK arena tour at The O2 in the capital yesterday with another high-energy show, before their previously-announced special guest joined them on stage.
Sneaking onto the drum kit after Babymetal had finished their performance of break-out single ‘Gimme Chocolate!!!’, Smith – who had dressed up and had his face painted in the style of Babymetal’s musical faction, the Kami Band – replaced drummer Hideki Aoyama behind the kit to perform a drum solo.
The rest of Babymetal then joined Smith to close their support slot with a Judas Priest medley (‘Painkiller’ and ‘Breaking The Law’). Smith then presented lead vocalist Su-Metal with a birthday cake for her 20th birthday, before leading The O2 crowd in a rendition of the ‘Happy Birthday’ song.

Meanwhile, Smith’s wife Nancy Mack was caught up in a bizarre fracas last week with Happy Days actor Scott Baio – apparently because he was a Trump supporter. Read more about the story here.
