    This just popped up on my Facebook memories 360 @ Wembley Stadium.. This means a decade has passed since U2 360.... how the hell did that happen!? Oh and phone cameras have improved a lot in the intervening decade!

    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 was just shared with me and I was given permission to share it here. It may take longer than you hope, but if they have enough information to pull an account, they will. Just be mindful of the fact that this may or may not affect their ability to open another account with another name; and it is in your best interest not to follow accounts that look like a individual band member’s account (because the real members don’t have those), nor let them follow you. Always report suspicious behavior, such as the charming messages asking for your email address.

    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. 😉

    There is a photo of me and my sisters from about 1987/88 or so. It has to be around that time as I'm only about 3 or 4 in the picture. They were in their mid-late teens and their outfits and hair are hilarious. Feathers in the hair, terrible perms, outlandish make-up and all sorts. Mum used to threaten them that she was going to put it on Facebook for a laugh. They didn't believe her... so one day Mum scanned it in and shared it with everyone

    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.

    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! ☺️

    Faith is what you believe, religion is what you do. The truth is represented by actions. Sometimes it can take a bit to turn out. I'm not necessarily Christian, but I do believe in Christ conciosness. I was raised Catholic, but the practices seemed contradictory to me. Sometimes people lack awareness. This can be shadow, blind ignorance, or evil. Shadow- check yourself Blind ignorance- confront it Evil- stay away or hold your ground

    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...

    well, the rabithole always goes deeper then one thinks. I try to look at it from all angels, you most be willing to take time and read beteen the lines. It's a shame to drag people through the mud just because the suspect something, not knowing for sure. A lot of the rich and famous are targeted just for someone else his suspicien. I had to learn how to decern as well, in the time of fake news its even more hard. One thing i know for sure: 'truth will prevail' and for my own believes, its better to have a clear concious and a desire to be true to your fellow man as yourself. One day we will have to answer to the Lord for all we have said and done. In this mentaly ill world its hard enough to stay kind to everyone at all times. Thats one of the things i'de admire about Christ. Wishing i could be like that all through my life. For better or worse: Stay true to yourself and your fellow man is my motto

    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).

    Psalm 25 New International Version (NIV) Psalm 25[a] Of David. 1 In you, Lord my God, I put my trust. 2 I trust in you; do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me. 3 No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame, but shame will come on those who are treacherous without cause. 4 Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. 5 Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. 6 Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old. 7 Do not remember the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you, Lord, are good. 8 Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in his ways. 9 He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way. 10 All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful toward those who keep the demands of his covenant. 11 For the sake of your name, Lord, forgive my iniquity, though it is great. 12 Who, then, are those who fear the Lord? He will instruct them in the ways they should choose.[b] 13 They will spend their days in prosperity, and their descendants will inherit the land. 14 The Lord confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them. 15 My eyes are ever on the Lord, for only he will release my feet from the snare. 16 Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. 17 Relieve the troubles of my heart and free me from my anguish. 18 Look on my affliction and my distress and take away all my sins. 19 See how numerous are my enemies and how fiercely they hate me! 20 Guard my life and rescue me; do not let me be put to shame, for I take refuge in you. 21 May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope, Lord,[c] is in you. 22 Deliver Israel, O God, from all their troubles!

    May you soon be found. I'm in a really good mood. It's been a great day. I'm listening to Sheryl Crow and feeling mellow. A midnight walk by the lake with more tunes is on deck.

    Well speak of the Devil! So as I thought, it's just tracks from both of the albums. The sequence is nice as well, mostly representing the running order of the show but with strays here and there. Just a shame Lucifer's Hands didn't make it onto the Innocence disc. And yeah, loving those photos!

    I'm sorry you were scammed like that keyo. All of these accounts really need to be removed, I can't believe they have so many followers and get away with scamming money out of us fans like this. But I had to double take, that is the Bono passport the other fake Bono sent me! I am sure of it! I wouldn't be surprised if it's one person or a group of them working together with these fake accounts.

    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.

    Yes, that's a strange thing that THOSE 3 tracks didn't have such a luck to be released even as a bonus download.... But 1 thing against subscribers from U22 poll time - how they could waste such a opportunity to not vote for such gems like Return of the Stingray Guitar (unreleased track) and Mothers of the Disappeared (never released as a live version)!?!?! 😕 All was in fans hands... I know Elevation was much better! 🥴
