I quite like these, nice to have something to frame. Lets be fair we aren't renewing because we get a nice little gift, everyone is renewing to ensure they get first dibs on any tour ! So those not renewing beware if a tour gets announced during 2016 for 2017.......just saying as wouldn't want regulars to miss out if they do.

Have been a member for many years but will forgo this renewal year as I am not happy with the gift that they are offering, not to mention, the seats that I had purchased though the fan club for the past 2-3 tours have been horrible.

 

Bring back the option of better seats are a decent price and more music gifts. All of the books and photo collections area waist and collect dust. I want Live music or collections of B-sides etc!!!!

 

 

Good bye U2.com!!!

Well they have been getting back to their punk roots so it makes sense in a way.....'ever get the feeling you've been cheated ?'.

Yikes going to cost me a fortune to frame them! I could do it myself but a local shop does it really well they look great but it's just expensive.

 

I think I like the waves and live one more than the other two so might just do those.

 

Cool gift it's a bit different although as I said not sure why the delay in announcing I kind of get the impression something else was maybe in mind and they they did this late in the day. (Personal opinion)

Tend to agree... I like U2 because of the music they make, but I've no great desire to hang pictures of what are basically four average looking middle aged blokes on my wall, even if they have been photoshopped with bits of buildings coming out of their heads.

hey, hands off from middle aged people :D

Nothing against middle aged, I'm there myself. And I'm not pin up material either.

 

To be fair we have probably been spoiled by the gifts over the last four years which have been pretty impressive. But that just seems to emphasise the contrast with this announcement.

Something different, I like the end of the world wolves print. New music would have been better for me but these'll do. If you want a subscription gift consultant, Im available next time

I posted this on atU2 and I'll post it again here.... Really? Worse than the recycled B-sides on Medium, Rare & Remastered and Artificial Horizon? Worse than the album tracks on Duals? Worse than the keychain that was the very first annual gift for U2.com subscribers?People will complain no matter what the gift is. I love (most) of the music releases even if some of them are re-issued B-sides/remixes. After the horrendous backlash that was Duals, U2 had to do something really special and we got it in a big way with U22 and From the Sky Down. North Side Story was just a book but it was unique and a fascinating look at early U2. Another Time, Another Place was not good for people who don't have a vinyl player. I don't have a vinyl player. But I loved it anyways because it was a new, completely unknown recording of U2 with some never-before released songs and the earliest released performances of others, and those without a record player could easily use the digital versions.The Serigraph collection is something completely new for the fanclub release, and it looks to be pretty high-quality. Not as high-quality as the lithographs which usually sell for about $100 US perhaps, but more than worth the $10 each that it translates to (without considering all the other exclusive articles and music you get from the website). Am I a fan of all the images? No. The band photo is similar to all the other pictures we ever see of the group, and the image of the group on stage could be better. In my mind they made a mistake by omitting an image of the group inside the screen during Even Better Than the Real Thing, and/or the Joshua Tree from the end of Streets which is one of the visual money shots of the tour. But that is the only mistake they made.For people to complain that it is lame, or that a $40 resubscription gift that would normally be $400 combined is a bad, last-minute idea... I'm afraid that I just don't understand that. The only bad thing I see is potential damage during shipping. People will always complain about the gifts, but really now. The only thing that would make this a bad gift is if the subscriber is blind.

Good posting like that. From the ground up and edges picks plus U22 lengendary love those. My favorite is U2 Go Home play that alot. Duals has some good stuff on it too

I expected something to do with the broadcasted Paris gig...DVD or Audio something like that. I wonder if what happened in Paris and the delayed gig was the reason the gift announcement was delayed and then maybe abandoned for whatever reason. I'm speculating here of course I was just ready to put my house on it being something to do with that.

 

I think my favourite was definitely From The Ground Up as it has a bit of everything (book and music), U22 was a close second. Didn't like the North Side book and the vinyl I can take it or leave it to be honest.

I actually like the gift quite a bit, although I have to say i was expecting something to do with the Paris gigs - a dvd or maybe a cd or both. Pick up some decent frames for these and I think these prints will look pretty good up on the wall.

Shame they didn't get one of the shot of Bono with Edge in his hand during UTEOTW. I always thought that was a great shot.

I think this is a pretty naff in comparison to the other things we've had in the past. I think a CD or vinyl of tracks from the tour would have been good, like they did for 360.

Oh well.

it's safe for them to save good stuff when they're not on tour... the majority will subscribe to gain access to ticket presales, they're gonna do the live cd after the tour (not that I'm happy with what we get so far...).

Let's just hope that a download will pop up soon... AND NOT DULL REMIX!!!!!!

I'm okay with the prints. I think I will keep the waves one and gift one or two of the others. I hope there is still something more to this, but not expecting anything. Some live audio downloads over the year would be great. 1 or 2 tracks a month would have fans coming back more often.

 

U22 was my favorite. I loved it so much that I purchased 2 years of subscription just so I could play the shit out of that collection and not have to worry too much about handling those cds in the car. The whole idea of fans picking the tracks was great. I do hope there is a future subscription where this could happen again. And maybe this is the point why there is no audio at this go around. Maybe the next chapter of the tour brings new songs and new "old" songs with it. Then we have 2 years of songs from the tour to pick from. Another double cd set of fan voted tracks!

  THe ENO/LAnois Version of the follow-up to No Line on The Horizon -  Songs of Ascent, i.e.. the extra-tracks from the NLOTH sessions :  EBW, North Star, Winter, SOON plus Glastonbury, Mercy (Long version), A Boy Falls from the Sky (performed by U2), Return of the Stingray Guitar.....If they'd given us a CD of that, I bet the site would've crashed with how many subscribers would have popped up.....I'd even pay $100  for that sort of CD !

Very disappointed. I have asked to retract my renewal order and to get a refund.

They tell me that a membership is non refundable.

So first they ask me to pay in advance and when i don't agree, i loose my money???

What is this kind of customer service?

 

Sorry for the delay in replying back. Regarding your request, we wish we had better news. Fan club memberships are non-refundable. For this reason, we are not able to cancel your membership.

We're so sorry we were unable to approve your request.

Have a safe day.

Sincerely,

Jerry
