    I would suggest contacting customer service about whichever item you are trying to purchase from the shop to see where it ships from. Just remember even if they think it will, they will have no control over the postal service, and this late date, the chances of before Christmas are slim.

    Bohemian Rhapsody Movie

    I’m glad you remembered and/or found that. When I watched the movie, I was thinking that I didn’t remember them being back to back but never looked it up. I haven’t read anything about why they may have chosen to do that. I can’t help but wonder if they did that bc U2’s looks were so distinguishable from that (@alohamode, if you get to see it again, you will notice it’s all of U2 they show coming off stage), and/or the fact that there’s always been a debate of which one of those performances stole the day.

    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    I still can’t get over how much this album (and tour) grabbed me. Usually after a tour, I’ll put away an album for a rest for a while. Still haven’t been able to do that with this one. Still in heavy rotation.

    Bohemian Rhapsody Movie

    Just got home from seeing it....not only were there the U2 flags, but you see them walking off the stage at the beginning and later on with they do the LiveAid bit in full. I thought it was a really good movie and thoroughly enjoyed it and would love to go see it again. As you pointed out, there were some inaccuracies in the timeline/facts, but forgivable because the actors did such a good job.

    u2 song of the day

  7. The Black Friday releases are part of the Record Store Day program. Here’s the list from yesterday and the number of copies of each. https://s3.amazonaws.com/recordstoreday/2018/2018_BLACK_FRIDAY_PUBLIC.pdf
  8. Record Store Day was created by a couple of small record stores in the US to get people back in the stores, and off the internet, to create a passion for vinyl. The first few years were lesser known bands, but the event has spread with popularity across the country and into several other countries. According to their website they do have participating stores in Belgium, http://www.recordstoreday.be/, so if you have a local store that doesn’t, maybe you could ask them to see if they could join. I do understand your frustration because there have been several records that I’ve missed because we didn’t get any in the stores near me and it adds to the frustration when you see them on resale sites. But selling them in the shop would defeat the whole purpose of RSD.

    Personal U2 show charts calculator

    I probably could have bought a car or something with the money I spent, but I love experiences better than things. I also always choose to start putting a little money away here and there after each tour, in hopes of a next one. I know how to budget and what I want to spend my money on.
  10. They were sold in the UK too. It is a shame how they end up on eBay though.
