    OK - So today i got to go for my first ever pre-sale for the Singapore show. Due to location and circumstance, I had never been in a position to go through this process before, so having been a member of U2.com for years, the Singapore announcement was a dream come true. Having watched from the sidelines for a number of years, i had always thought the moderators did a fanstastic job, and felt a strong sense of community within Zootopia. Today, when things went a bit awry in the presales, I experienced first hand what I have watched for years and I am very grateful. The image below pretty much sums up the roller coaster from this morning and for me two things are very clear: 1. buying tickets for these concerts is in no way a neutral experience, and 2. The moderators annd community are just fantastc. What is also missing from the picture is "thankfullness" to the mods, and to the community who actively participate in helping others. This is literally off the chart.

    Emailed them once and they said no. Emailed them again and I got this response. Success!

    Love you Bono - No hard border - ever- no them, only us.....we've worked too hard to create peace here. The people , north n south, won't accept the past. Thanks for a fantastic tour.

    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.

    The reason for discussing this is because we love u2 so much. The point is not that we're not thankful or something. This is about informing subscribers who paid their membership and are promised certain things. So confusing starts and then a forum is a great place to share feelings about this. The gift gor this year is among the best gifts they they've had, so inform subscribers and ship this great item. Money isn't the issue I think.

    Just some thoughts about Ticket Pick Ups at 7/11. I wandered into a random one the other day, and talked to the dude working there. You will need the Ticket Order Confirmation e-mail with your ticket number on it (about 15 digits). You can either print it out, before you go, or take your mobile device with it on there. (For example my confirmation e-mail was sent to my i-phone e-mail, so I will take the phone and show them the e-mail.) The staff enters your ticket information into the register and prints out the ticket(s) for you. They might get you to push a 'confirm' button on a screen. They will also give you a receipt to sign. And that's it. Simply say 'Ticket Pick up' and show the e-mail and you'll be fine. Don't forget to smile. The only small confusion I had with my dude at first was he thought I wanted to buy tickets at first. I recommend you take some I.D. with you (just in case) and maybe have the credit card with you...again just in case. Also maybe some small change in case there is a printing fee (maybe 300-400 Yen/ 3 or 4 bucks). Most staff will be able to understand simple English spoken a little slowly and clearly. The ticket confirmation e-mail also includes Japanese instructions for the Staff if they give you a WTF? look. but I don't think there will be any issues. this part of the e-mail: [STANDING FRONT/REAR, SS/S/A SEAT] Tickets must be picked up at a Seven-Eleven store in Japan prior to the show, and will not be issued at the venue. Tickets will be available for pick up from 20th November (Wed) from 10:00am. When picking up your ticket(s), you will be required to show your e-mail purchase confirmation to store staff. Please ensure you print this in advance or are able to access it on your mobile device. After the staff have confirmed the Ticket Number shown in your e-mail purchase, they will print your ticket(s). Make picking up the tickets a priority when you get into Tokyo. Don't leave it to the last minute. Don't lose them, they cannot be re-issued. I hope this is some help, it may be redundant as others may have already posted about it. Keep on Rockin' and Rolling.

    Since there is so much interest in Mr MacPhisto at the moment, I thought you might like to check out my dedicated MacPhisto fansite if you haven't been there recently or ever. Among other things I've added a brand new transcripts page for the EI Tour, which will obviously be expanded as the tour goes on. (It will take me a little while longer to bring this page up to date with the latest developments. This whole thing has come as a massive surprise - even though I argued that it was the perfect time to bring MacPhisto back, I never thought they would actually do it!!)

    I appreciate that this is non Manchester related but I’m writing in response to the periscope debate in the thread. I broadcast from Belfast in the i and e tour but you do get cramp holding your phone up. I’m going both nights next weekend and might broadcast a few songs from one of the nights depending on wi fi. Would anyone recommend a selfie stick as a way to avoid an overdose of lactic acid in my biceps? Cheers

    I can already predict something getting in my eye when they play 13 in the last show of the tour.

    ...and today is a truly blessed day. After months of collective feedback-giving about the formats available to us for the annual gift, we have finally been heard. If you look in your account information, not only is there a download link for mp3s, there is now a download link for WAV files! Those who want to have this collection on CD can now burn one on their own. "The squeaky wheel gets the grease" is the old expression; in this case, it finally came to pass. Sincere thanks to the mods who must have passed on our (numerous) complaints about wanting to have higher-quality downloads - and thanks to the higher-ups for finally acquiescing to a request that, frankly, was always a reasonable one. A very good U2 day!

    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

    cheers to everyone who posted their hints last week... I was able to get 3 GAs to Auckland 2 in less time than it took me to play One Tree Hill :-) Don't give up if you get an error like this, just close it and try again from U2.com/tour

    Worked this out for myself just now. Just remembered that I had purchased a t shirt from the u2 shop on Saturday for £23 and that explains the live nation charge on my cc! Must be getting old!

    I still love SOE - especially since it gave birth to the e&i tour. Thank you, U2, for an amazing album and tour! ? Rest well, and we look forward to having you delight us in unforeseen ways with a new album and/or tour when you feel that you are ready. Thank you for your whole career, but thank you especially for the past 5 years, from the beginning of the SOI sessions to the completion of the e&i tour tonight. You wrapped up Innocence and Experience into a nice cohesive and complete musical package - William Blake himself would be proud of you! ??? Bless you until we all meet up again. ????

    Is it weird that I almost prefer this version of EBTTRT to the album version? That said I preferred the 360/IE version of this with the guitar solo at the start.

    Hi Max, looking forward to gig.. One slight correction... Belfast isn't in GB. - GB = England, Scotland and Wales. UK is GB and NI.

    it’s more than likely that the venue wouldn’t allow the use of a selfie stick... please don’t take any unnecessary risk... my advice on this: the priority is always that you enjoy the show... if you can stream, much appreciated and many thanks in advance, even if it’s just half a song... but if you feel tired or the wifi is crappy and it would be too expensive to use your mobile credit or even if you arrive there and decide to just enjoy the show... by all means, don’t broadcast... it’s entirely optional and everyone will survive if there isn’t any stream... good luck and enjoy the shows!!!

    Simple Minds are epic-saw them again last month. I grew up in West Wales listening to U2 and simple minds on a crackly RTE 2FM from a Across the Irish Sea.. Glad you enjoyed and got to see them after I flagged the tour on here.
