In the most special of #fbf moments, it’s time to celebrate another year as a venue. Above is the original board tape from Metro’s first show (with R.E.M.). While the landscape of live music has changed plenty over the years, the sole focus at Metro has been—and always will be—the music. Huge thanks to our wonderful staff and patrons for becoming a part of our history. Here’s to many more years of unforgettable shows and good times!

energycommission : That's what I love about playing the Metro. The staff treat the artists with more dignity and respect than any other venue I've played. Even if you're not a national / major lable act, they treat you like you are to accommodate your performance. Kudos to the Metro!
metrochicago : Aw shucks, @energycommission, you're makin us blush! Thanks so much for the kind words 😊
energycommission : Haha! #realtalk Much love to your entire crew!
