Here is a press release from Mike Portnoy about the upcoming "Metropolis 2000: Scenes From New York" DVD release:
I am extremely sorry to announce that due to errors in the DVD authoring process, the release date of Metropolis 2000: Scenes From New York has once again been delayed to April 24th, 2001.
I am furious over these errors which were out of my hands and I am just as disappointed as any of you in having to wait to share this great DVD with you all.
I must stress that the delay has absolutely nothing to do with any errors or dissatisfaction on mine or the record company's behalf......they were stricly technical errors in the authoring process which forced me to pull the plug on production until the errors were corrected.
I know what a disappointment this is, but it will be worth the wait when the product is finally released in April.....In the meantime to tide you over, keep an eye on dreamtheater.net in the coming weeks for an M2000 Trailer to give you all a sneak preview!
PS - A very special thanks to all the great, dedicated DT fans who pre-ordered the DVD and made it #1 at CDnow......We will let you know when it is available to pre-order once again!
