Every Metric signing I've done has been a crowded cattle call. All were free or you had to buy a cd.

I think this is the first year they've charged for VIP passes on a tour. I know they tried at one Canadian show in 2010.

Meeting them before/after a show I've seen individual members agreeing to photos. Though I've never seen full band poses in a single shot except once or twice in Europe.

The $200 is an "upgrade" instead of buying the "$250" one with primo seat or GA. Unsold inventory.

I don't think it's good value for mo ey but if they start offering soundcheck or short Q&A I'd be very tempted.

What are Metric show tickets selling for this year? Just curious. There are bands like the Sheepdogs (going!) coming through for $25, and oldies like Burton Cummings charging around $75, which is a bit of a joke. But he will sell out the show. Metric: $40? $50?

Some VERY mixed reviews coming out of Seattle from the arena radio festival on Twitter. Curious what Wyder reports.

16 song set in Portland(same as Canada minus kitten/mind). 16 cubes and the lasers are back.

I didn't even bother with Portland/Seattle even though both are only a couple hours away. 4 shows in 2012 will hold me and pretty sure I'll see them next year at Coachella.

Only sign of life from the band in about a month.

capacity of 6,500. Mexico City might even be a top 5 market for them at this point depending how well it sells.

There's 4 scheduled gigs left for Metric over the next month. Chicago, Miami, North Bay Ontario and Quebec City.

Atlantic Canada never got a performance, no South American dates, Europe only got 10 shows, Seattle/Washington state never got a full show and San Francisco never got a public show with the full band. It's also unusual that BC and Alberta only got 1 proper pass when previous tours have had 4-5 visits throughout the tour cycle.

Is the Synthetica tour winding down or is it merely the halfway point?

I think Synthetica is winding down.
Fantasies was their coming out party that never ended.
I bet they're all working on other projects/new music.
it tears me up to get stuck at the gates

I got tickets to Saturday's free show in Chicago. Yay. Especially since I got an alert about a new Chicago show in October or November where they're playing with frickin' Paramore and Hellogoodbye at a bigass venue.

Does anyone else find it strange that Metric has only headlined Chicago twice for Synthetica and both times, they were special free shows?

Oh yeah, I forgot they played Lolla last year. It's a huge, expensive festival, so... idk. I personally never count Lolla/Coachella/etc.. Anyway, considering it's CHICAGO, I still think it's odd they haven't played a normal show!

Too bad Paramore didn't ask them to tour South America or Atlantic Canada. I'm sure they'd be there in a heartbeat if they did. :roll:
