    After Bad, it's my favorite U2 song. It's mind blowing to see it live. I think they skipped it because it's on so many other things that have been released. As for your confusion to my post about us asking for much-it was just a silly joke from being excited about this gift and the new tour. My gut tells me there is a decent chance they will play UTEOTW for TJT 2019 (mere conjecture but I think we'll hear it). It's a new tour in places they have not played for a long time, if at all. I too am hoping it makes the set list. I watch the EI live versions on YouTube all the time.

    Don’t really get the need for it..Don’t people already have it on U22 and ZOO TV from Sydney? I would however love to have Acrobat, Wild Horses and Dirty Day on a well mastered CD.

    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 ......

    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. .

    This is an intriguing photo. Is it a joking FU to everyone acknowledging that he is now another year older, or is it a special FU dedicated to Elton John, vis a vis, the elaborate glasses? The mind boggles... Anyway, happy birthday to two of the men I admire most: The Edge and my younger brother Mark (R.I.P. - he passed in 1996).

    Anything and everything they do upsets some people. It's U2.

    Ahhh, new tracks. The Miracle was the first ever U2 song I heard live in the flesh so it's always got a special place for me. Love Is All We Have Left is a track I was kind of sad not to hear live in its original form - it's mesmerising.

    Today was the Feast of the Assumption for the Catholic Church. The Magnificat, from the Gospel according to Saint Luke: My soul magnifies the Lord And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior; Because He has regarded the lowliness of His handmaid; For behold, henceforth all generations shall call me blessed; Because He who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is His name; And His mercy is from generation to generation on those who fear Him. He has shown might with His arm, He has scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart. He has put down the mighty from their thrones, and has exalted the lowly. He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich He has sent away empty. He has given help to Israel, his servant, mindful of His mercy Even as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his posterity forever.

    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. 😉

    It is important to try and eat properly when you can. I was sick once from not eating enough - it was horrible. On a happier note, my CD arrived today. I was surprised when I scanned it into the computer and Media Player actually had the track information - I thought I'd have to type it all in myself. Even though I'm only probably going to keep the Aleka's Attic song. The lyric book has photos, which is helpful as I've never heard of some of the other artists involved - and some of the fashions in said photos... well, let's just say they're typical late 80s/early 90s

    I managed to eat enough today. It's been very rough because I have no appetite. Legally prescribed marijuana pills help but I get sick of being stoned all the time. I'm taking a break from them which means eating is very challenging. I managed to eat three times. It's a good thing.

    faith might also be in who or what you know, believe it will remain the same or getting better is the faith i practice. You wrote religion is what you do, i've been pondering about it for a while and i could relate to it. Religion has also a bad side taste, as in organised believe such as in church and its dogmas. Im not a Christian in the sense as belonging to a certain church or movement, i just believe as Him being the son of God who came to bring us out of the slavery of sin and the chains of the darkness. In this case i can relate to the Christian conciousness, the highest and most noble spirit to reach for us humans here. Awareness is like an pencel that needs to be sharpend every now and then. The three steps you've mentiont are an issue which return on a base untill you master them i presume.

    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 get bad depressions because of my head and other trauma. I've been through mental health assessments. They told me they were surprised I was not more depressed. I attribute that to embracing music, dancing and laughter. You seem to have your own things you love. Props, pad. You'll be fine. It takes a lot of courage to go but you will be fine. Props! ☺️

    Never said it should be part of this set/release/cd. It should have been released as bonus tracks for U22/Edge’s Picks several years ago. The fact that they had 46 songs (I think they said it was every song played on that tour) ready to go and they released 43 seems odd (and it would be great if they released them as bonus downloads someday). Its odd that Lucifer’s Hands isn’t on this CD (although it was only played 3 times on the tour and maybe the band just wasn’t satisfied with any of the three recordings). There should be plenty of room on the cd. I think some of the other songs listed were played on the tour and are rarities. I would not want those on the cd’s but would make great bonus downloads this year. Just seems like releasing 43/46 U22 tracks and omitting Lucifer’s Hands are unforced errors and sloppy by U2...

    Me too only it was years before the film and started with Cheech and Chong's Up In Smoke. 😝 I hope your sister is doing better. I've been thinking about both of you.

    First of all, thnx for your honest and full reply on a matter i didnt want to stir up in such manner but since it's what is quiet relevant it might be good to be clear about some topics. When you are as famous as these guys are, everything you say or do gets magnified and twisted. The most who criticizing others are in a position to conceal their own dirt. like you said, looking at specks. its like they are using whatever they can twist for their own agenda. but being number one at ratings is something every artist come's accros when theu lance a new album and with this you expose yourself to all kinds of rediclious opions, i think its a shame but this is someting you get with the package of fame. Oncs you got the name of being a dodgy figure in their eye's they will hunt you forever, i think this is the case when you follow a trail of opions wich feed eachother and have the same conclusion. Which is, not in my eyes but in as you said, i've read to much into hyped media story's. I took a story and followed it, it lead me to old intervieuws and at the end the som is something completely different then the intent. I just asked a question, didnt get much reply other a well explained one of yours, There should be more interaction, its always better to talk and inform then to be scilent and sigh..

    My current mood is "enlightened" as a result of completing a temp job where I washed dishes and cleaned tables for a nearby result. As a result, I learned this line of work is very hard and if any rich snob tells you otherwise, you have my permission to go him/her to buy a brain!!

    How about for those who have already renewed their subscription (in my case some 5 months ago) that we get all the tracks digitally now? Can it really be that hard to organise? Having to wait months and months for the physical CD is something that never ever gets addressed and needs fixing.

    YEAH.... And while they're at it and we're PAYING anyway....Why don't they at least let us CHOOSE one I+E show to download in its' entirety.... How's that for marketing strategy ? And it took me 1 second to come up with it !!!!!

    Rest in peace Rutger Hauer. And thank you from all of us film geeks. And yes, everyone will be posting that scene from Blade Runner. I'm always amazed to know that, as beautifully as it fits the moment, Hauer wrote the 'Tears in Rain' speech himself, in English which, being Dutch, was not his first language. And in doing so he created an iconic moment, not just in sci-fi, but in cinema as a whole. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-49098435

    I'm irritated with married/partnered people making overtures and then getting pissed when I decline by saying I wouldn't want someone to do the same to me. Get out or stay in and make it work with your spouse. It's the kindest thing you can do.

    Matthew 13 The Explanation of the Parable of the Sower.*18f Hear then the parable of the sower.19The seed sown on the path is the one who hears the word of the kingdom without understanding it, and the evil one comes and steals away what was sown in his heart.20The seed sown on rocky ground is the one who hears the word and receives it at once with joy.21But he has no root and lasts only for a time. When some tribulation or persecution comes because of the word, he immediately falls away.22The seed sown among thorns is the one who hears the word, but then worldly anxiety and the lure of riches choke the word and it bears no fruit.23But the seed sown on rich soil is the one who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and yields a hundred or sixty or thirtyfold.”

    Does anyone think that they might put out a separate digital double album that the public can purchase of the two tours? I would really like to have Stay, Dirty Day and the stripped down version of Sunday Bloody Sunday. ☺️ For that matter I would love to have a digital version of the whole JT2017 tour, particularly Bad.

    My current mood is slightly irritated because for the good majority of the weekend I was busing tables at a restaurant. Don't get me wrong the people I worked with were great, but when a rich twat or a glamour puss tells you that's NOT hard work really stinks as ignorance generally does.

    I did not. I was hoping for The Troubles but didn't think it would be a part of this. I would never have even hoped for The Crystal Ballroom. That is a very nice surprise. The same is true of Volcano and California. Two tracks are from Chicago, where I attended the shows. That's a nice as well. As always, thanks to the mods.

    45, 084 - Nearly lunchtime counting. Thankfully it's a little cooler round my way today (so far). I feel sorry for people who have to work in these temperatures - it must be horrible wearing office clothes or heavy safety gear in this heat. My nephew's workplace had to close early yesterday as one of the machines overheated to the point of actually catching fire Luckily no-one was hurt.
