Yeah I had the whole dvd of the concert damn hard drive failed and lost it all..

For The Love of God intro is the best.. It should of been that way on the cd

Liberty was also very nicely done, as were a few others to say the least. I wish someday this would make it out to CD its exceptional.

Is it me or is that rendition of Lotus Feet really sloppy...its still good but I think he played it much better on the CD recorded one, and even when I saw him do it live..

hahah, no its not, the ending is all wrong, he does the slide sustain thing a lot longer in the vid, and Steve screws up at 1:25 and another blunder at 3:30, not to mention he's using the whammy bar a lot more in the vid as well, like at 3:25, which is a lick not on the CD....Don't forget too he did more than 1 show...

Its possible he edited it back in the studio though, he's known for doing that but I doubt it on this..

well, its not suppose to be out yet, heres the quote from Steve:

So, projecting past the ZPZ tour I should be working on the Metropole CD's, I hope to have them for a release by the end of the year, but that may be a challenge. Just.. gotta.... get this... Urhgghg !!!! under my &#@^#%@[email protected]* FINGERS!
So I don't know how these got leached onto the internet. As far as the recording on the RI:R album, it is recorded live /w the orchestra. However, as I pointed out, I don't think the video and the CD are the same for obvious reasons.

I've seen the DVD and there's a constant NPS logo in the corner. So I presume someone recorded it off the TV and burnt it to DVD and uploaded it

Lotus feet from Real Illusions is from the 2004 performance. The video bootlegs you see are from the 2005 performance, which was partially broadcasted. Those are from the NPS (not that anyone gives a crap about copyright anymore), which is public broadcasting and responsible for some fine musical gigs with the metropole. Vai, Bozzio, Keneally did them amongst others.

I'd suggest waiting for the official release, as it will knock your socks off.
Although Steve plays on about half of the tracks (partly the classics with an orchestra, partly re-arranged stuff - the others are compositions that primered there) the stuff is mindblowing and shows Vai as a truely gifted contemporary composer in what has been the most amazing musical experience i've had the honor to witness. Great music, great guitar playing, and the best damn contemporary orchestra on this planet.

Since both the NPS and the Metropole orechstra are in danger due to government financial cuts ('let's not spend any money on culture and other intersting stuff'), it's especially disappointing to see their rights violated by having this stuff bootlegged and put online.
