  SAME HERE, MAN.... Same here.. I listen to it everyday and 5 to 15 live versions too...

    ..... I'm very sad about it ....

   Personally.... I would have wanted the Glasgow 2015 I+E shows..at least available for download...here on the site....Without changing the physical gift....

  I can't understand why they're not DOING it....  There would be a WHOLE lot more Subscribers if they gave us concerts to download ......

I think it is ture - we would even pay a littl eextra to be able to dowload concerts we were at - they are SO personal !!!

NOT MEANT TO CRITICIZE ANYONE'S COMMENTS-JUST MY OPINION:

The tracks have been announced.  They never promised any timing with this gift.  There are almost always delays with production.  It's easy to not realize what a huge undertaking it is to produce and deliver these gifts.  I'm tired of the, 'they are rich' comments.  We are free to subscribe or not subscribe.  Nobody forces us.  Many people, including myself, are very happy with this gift.  Some are not.  This happens every year. Downloads of different shows were never a part of this subscription gift.  Perhaps a different thread for future U2 wishes, or something of the sort, should be started.  I don't know.  The gift has been announced.  It is what it is.  I think we should appreciate what we are being given and put our other wishes into a different thread.

I'm enjoying trying to guess what the next released downloads will be.  Will it be two, as it's previously been?  If so, which two?  Perhaps we'll get four this time?   Will it be all of the remaining ones at once?   I hope it's a couple.  I like being teased.  It's fun.

I respect your opinion but couldn't agree. How this 2 CDs are HUGE project in comparsion to houndreds or tousands of CDs releasing every year by music companies? It's not vinyls or DVDs where situation is different. I think opposite - that it's simple and standart procedure. I never heard that U2 have to push release date of their album for several months because of delays with production with CD 😐 All tracks were chosen by band - not have to way what fans will chose. Those delays just show how bad management and marketing is on u2.com or bad communication between band and site. Good working team should get exact date that we could expect gift - if it would be longer OK, but better than "Pay and in some future you'll get some gift..."

I really hope someday we get DVD as a subscribtion gift, but on the other hand production like this could take maybe 2 years or longer.... 😵

I couldn't imagine U2.com (as a background of one of the biggest band in the world) saying to subscribers something like "you're are free to subscribe or not subscribe". Sorry, no - they should make as much as possible that more and more fans become subscribers. This should be an example to follow by other band's sites.

I was really happy when they said that this time it would be CD not vinyl, not book, not poster. 2 CDs - even better! But if there some mistakes and they are repeated from last gifts that should be say also. 😉

The subscriber's gift is one facet of our membership; not the sum of all its parts.  This thread is specifically about the 2019 subscription gift-not the past nor the future.. Each of us is free to create a separate thread to address concerns about what was and/or wishes for what will be.concerning subscribers gifts and possible surprise releases in the future.

IE and EI are a marking point for U2.  Once again, they set the bar.  The 2019 subscribers gift is celebrating yet another amazing accomplishment by the greatest rock band ever These two tours helped countless people, throughout the world, get through very difficult times. In my opinion, we should be celebrating and appreciating this gift for what it is, not dumping on it for what it is not. . 

IE and EI were special.  Let's honor it and dance away the chaos we all feel.  :Bananaphisto:.

 Members usually  post when shipping begins.  It's how I've always known to start checking my account.  I remember being notified my gifts were being shipped and then there is a bit of a delay before the actual tracking number appears on my account.  That delay time varies but it's while the gift is between the U2 warehouse and UPS, or whomever is used for delivery.

That's not exactly true...

"The complete tracklisting will be published in early 2019 with shipping beginning in Spring 2019."

https://www.u2.com/news/title/innocence--experience-live-2015--2018

When we renew our memberships, the band offers incentives to do so. This one is particularly cool, but also, months late. That's a fact.

I'm not angry or anything (although a little more transparency would be nice), but let's not make it out to be our fault for expecting them to keep their word (or at the very least, explain clearly why they aren't).

Our opinions differ.  That doesn't make anyone right or wrong.  My comments were never meant to disparage anyone, or their opinions..  It's not about fault. I'm choosing to look at the bright side. It's U2.  There's always a bump or two in the road., but in the end, they deliver. I'm truly excited these are now being pressed into our gifts. They're gonna be awesome.
