So if you were there, please tell of your experience!

metro was probably way over capacity, but I don't want to get Joe in trouble, so don't quote me on that. But the floor and balcony were wall to wall, no space at all.
Crowd was crowd, I don't really know how to answer that question. I've seen tons of SP shows and the crowds have always been supportive.
JI booked out pretty fast, but unless I'm crazy and someone can provide a quote, JC never said JI left without saying goodbye. That is a BC quote, and as far as I am concerned, coming from a bias. Not confirmed, unless JC said the same thing. But none of us knew this supposed news at the time, we didn't have access to the backstage. Found out later.
Regular banter. I think I have a copy of the shitty AUD recording that was circulating many years ago, but haven't listened back to it. Also, it was over 12 years ago now. LOL
no DW mentions, off the top of my head.

As for the James leaving immediately after the show, some people over on Netphoria claimed he was at the after-party for at least 30-45 minutes. They said he appeared to be with his family and girlfriend, and was for the most part very quiet and reserved, but was happy to sign the CDs given away after the show.
As Mayfair said, I think this is something Billy has added importance to after the fact. I think it's a fair assumption to make that Jimmy, Billy, and James figured they would all talk to each other again.

So this DVD (blue ray, whatever,...) is probably due next year.
Well I hope so... :unsure:/>
I must admit it is something I crave as well.
they would never package it with the reissues. the whole thing would cost way too much $$$. Metro will be a stand alone release.

Oh yeah, you're right. And it has already been debated on, sorry...
I'm craving this little thingy so hard that I start losing my mind. :p/>

People keep saying this, no one has "proven" anything. They are including a cassette with the Pisces reissue. The marginal cost of a DVD or CD probably isn't very high at this point anyway.
Metro show packaged with a Machina reissue absolutely increases the sales of the Machina reissue among non-hardcore fans IMO.
Not saying that they wouldn't do them separately, but it's not like it's the Bible Truth or something.

I still beg to differ. We'll see what happens, but I don't whatsoever believe that this cost argument has been demonstrated by anyone. You really think a double-sided DVD costs that much for a record company these days? I'm NOT saying it's a slam dunk that it'll be included. I'm saying they will do whatever they think will move more discs/make them more money, and I'm not sure which of those would do it.

Still in deep denial, I see. ;)/>
No, I know that whatever BC says right now could easily change in a month - that's true. Still, this shows that there is a strong possibility it will come out with a reissue and not as a standalone piece.

the Machina release needs an Arising compilation. Metro could and would sell on its own.
What do you think about the idea of an Arising show on the [combined] Machina reissue and the Metro show on a "best of" reissue?
