    I was at that show for Invisible and I’m so glad it’s included. I can’t even explain what happened when they started playing it, but when Bono sings “I am not invisible, I am here” and then all the sudden you could see them in the screen, I just burst out crying. That was one of the most epic moments of that tour for me.

    Absolutely ridiculous the length of time it's taken to release these 23 tracks? Springsteen can release dozens of live concert recordings in the time it's taken this release to come out. I'm sorry but your starting to take the goodness out of it. Just bloody release it and move on. It's almost mid September, and as someone rightly said, U2.COM will be soon looking for people to resubcribe soon. Shambolic. Rant over!

    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!

    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.

    Complete agree on this. After several 'delays' the item was said to be shipped in August. And guess what? No shipping. It's almost a year since it has been announced! I know it'll arrive one day for sure and I love this gift but teasing and teasing us is not so great. Another point of disappointment for me is the lack of official NEW u2 releases. It looks like every band is releasing deluxe versions and other material regularly (Stones, REM, etc etc) U2 stays with old releases in a different colour. It has become very lazy business for u2. Money is more important now than their fans imo. Last great deluxerelease was the deluxe set of AB several years ago. After that they stopped with deluxe versions. Where are the dvd's/blu rays for JT, E&I for example??? As a fan I'm

    Well said...I resubscribed on the 20th of November when this gift was announced. I half joked that i’d be happy to get it by Christmas 2019...Now i’m wondering if we’ll have it by then. It’s farcical at this stage , and as you say the interminable wait has taken the goodness out of it......it’s generally hardcore fans who subscribe to sites like these and such fans are not the type to ‘forget’ about a gift like this until it lands on the doorstep....1st world problems,I know..

    SM is one of the biggest corporations in the Philippines, they're involved in pretty much everything from grocery products to real estate, movie theaters, concert production etc. There are SM malls all over the country, and most of these will have a ticket counter from which you can collect the tickets upon presentation of the voucher received after buying online. Seated tickets can be collected immediately at any of these outlets. For GA tickets though I got an email saying that these could only be collected at Will Call outlets at the venue on the day of the show, requiring presentation of the voucher and ID and credit card matching the name of the buyer.

    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).

    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.

    Just curious as to who is going to Manila and if you have any idea/suggestions on where you're staying and how you are getting to the show as it doesn't look like there is much mass transit. Open to meeting up with others as well as doing some cost sharing on rides etc if anyone is interested

    Did you know there are some U2 comics out there? I’d have to dig them out for the exact date, but I got them in the mid-90s, I think.

    This is from Sunday, but my eldest nephew took part in the Great North Run half-marathon - and absolutely smashed it! It was his first time ever doing a half-marathon and he ran it in 1 hour 49 minutes. An amazing time and now we're waiting to see the final total of how much he raised for his chosen charity. Really proud of him

    My next show is tomorrow! Morrissey, with Interpol opening. You know @CorkVegan, I didn't know what you were referring to when you wrote the highlighted bit above; however, I later saw a story where he was singing his praises of a new nationalist party in England. I threw up a little bit in my mouth when I read it. 🤢 So, I'm still going to the show to see Interpol, but I may only see Interpol. I'm not staying for someone who is acting as a mouthpiece for right-wing nationalism; that philosophy is ruining the world right now (US, UK, Brazil, etc.). I can't believe that someone who, very admirably, stands up for the rights of animals (there's no meat being served at the venue tomorrow; I approve) can't stand up as he once did for the rights of humans. Disappointing...

    if possible, try to call the U2.com customer service (phone numbers on the HELP page)... email or the form may take a bit more time than calling them, but it may involve a very expensive LD phone call...

    Happy-it's Irish Fest by me. Largest Irish festival outside of Ireland. I get to go see Irish Terriers and play with them. (yay) I badly want another. There is a promo where one can donate 10 original Irish music items to an Irish music archive for our Irish Center and get two admissions. They'll be getting an old original copy of Achtung Baby from me as one item. I'm deciding if I should give them the gifted U2 seriographs I am not going to frame. Otherwise, they'll be just sitting in a tube in my closet. I'm thinking this is a good place for them to go. Why is it so hard to give them up?

    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.

    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).

    Can’t understand why anyone would be unhappy to have them come to their city/country!? I saw JT in LA (I live in NZ). Didn’t want to chance they wouldn’t come to NZ/Aus, and was thrilled to finally hear they were coming. The more shows you can see the better I say. I did two at Rose Bowl and now get to do two in Auck and two in Syd. Can’t see a down side!? Enjoy Phillipines!

    There is another @SeanLowe009 claiming to be in U2’s mgmt and thinking fans are gullible enough to believe Bono will do house visits for as cheap as €300. Was wanting me to hook up via an app called hangout. Kept pestering even though I asked if I could pay by carrier pigeon.

    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.
