  1. That tracking number on the order status page is not the UPS one. If you got the shipping confirmation e-mail from UPS My Choice, that has the correct tracking number. Mine was shipped on 3/2 to Austin, TX and is scheduled for delivery 3/9. So you'll probably get yours in the next few days if you're in the U.S.
  2. Two More Shows In The US

    REALLY surprised to see more cities being added at this point. Let's hope for even more! Need to get at least one more within my 500-mile must-attend radius!
  3. Yes, you could probably successfully sue to get your $40 or $50 back :). I'm betting that your vinyl will show up soon, though. Seems like lots are shipping now. They probably moved you to last on the list just to aggravate you more though :).
  4. These new vinyl releases are not exclusives or anything. Amazon and all other outlets will have them.
  5. Yeah, since I’m getting ready to move I sent an email asking if there is an estimated ship date. A few hours later I received the shipping notification email.
  6. Point valid and well taken. Vinyl offering is definitely based on trend or what might or might not be fad. The vinyl resurgence has been going on for several years now, so it appears to be back to stay at some level. It would be interesting to know if it is any more difficult to provide lossless digital. If not, then my guess is that since mp3 is good enough for most people they're just not that concerned about satisfying the few.
  7. Fair enough point. I could be wrong, but I'm guessing that many/most people listen to much/most of their music from a mobile device with earbuds these days. With that setup, studies have found that the difference between mp3 and the lossless formats is undetectable to the vast majority of human ears.
  8. Yeah, I really don't understand all of the rage over this. I have not received mine yet either. When it gets here it gets here. I'll be happy to have it, but it really won't make any difference in my life.
  9. That's pretty funny :), but vinyl has definitely made a comeback. I personally don't have a turntable and don't intend to jump back into vinyl at this point in my life, but I still enjoy collecting some vinyl just for the artwork. The music on this vinyl collection is available for download and all of U2's music is available for streaming anyway, so the fact that this is on vinyl makes no difference in my opinion.
  10. eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour Heading To Europe

    Glad to see that the "Verified" process is not going to be used for this leg. Hopefully it is gone forever!
  11. I did the same thing during the Foo Fighters Capital One presale. That was weeks ago and the charge was finalized and I never heard anything. Looks like it’s not a problem.
  12. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    I really doubt that the CD that comes with each ticket has anything to do with the ticket price. If you want the CD today, buy it and share the free CDs with a couple friends 😁🎸.
  13. Who's Excited?!

    I’m excited! Making the drive from Austin. We're the only ones on the whole tour that will be surprised by the set list 😎🎸🤘.
  14. Yeah, great stuff in this. Old interview snippets, demos, etc. and a great mix of old and new music including live recordings from JT tour. Have not checked to see if those are the same ones that are included with the 2017 U2.com exclusive that are available for download now.
  15. U2.com 2018 Subscription FAQ Thread

    Yeah, my heart almost stopped when I saw this e-mail subject line from Ticketmaster: IMPORTANT: Your U2 Ticket Order Thought for sure it was going to say “sorry, but you didn’t really get tickets” 🤓.
