  1. Did anybody get an email notification about shipping yet?????
  2. As a U2-fan since the early 80's I'm very disappointed in U2's release strategy. What we get is what we've got: Releasing all different kind of colorvinyl is ripping of fans. In The AB deluxe sets another dvd for ZooTV and another Zooropa(with no further extras or improvement of quality).... Of course there have been some great releases in the past, but they are rare (Joshua tree deluxe with Paris Concert) or The extra dvd for AB with great material, or the deluxe treatments of Boy, October, War UABLS and UF. But the last years there is almost NOTHING. Some vinyls for RSD, but I don't have a recordplayer (still buying the vinyls though). There could finally could be: A deluxe treatment for RAttle and Hum with outtakes, a bluray version with material from the Love Town concerts, A ZooTv concert release (not a zooropa/zoomerang thing), The Pop deluxe version, with outtakes, bluray with A year in Pop, a blu ray version for Popmart Mexico, or better another recorded concert from Popmart, a collection of ATYCLB versions/bluray elevation tour/deluxe ATYCLB, The complete HTDAAB WITH mercy and u23d Bluray, The Rubin Sessions 2006, NLOTH with demos and or the first version of Songs Of Ascent, Then the much rumoured JT dvd/bluray or E&I dvd/bluray (with could be announced in the coming couple of weeks), with HBO documentary. Then for the fanclub subscribers there could be released a lot of livesongs/concerts and gift sent out in time There is an awful lot of material on the shelves, but the unique releases are very rare in comparison to other bands/singers etc... (Springsteen, Depeche Mode, Simple Minds, Prince, Bowie, Marillion(!) even REM releases more!) I'm proud to be a U2 fan, but their release strategy sucks!
  3. . Shipping from the USA takes not as long as from the UK here in the Netherlands. So I hope from the USA....
  4. It's.................. October!!!!
  5. 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
  6. Shipping should've been started. It's september by now.😀 Who's got an email that the gift is shipped?
  7. Anyone got their gift yet?? Shipping should start in august... Second half of the month is starting now... Just curious..
  8. There was unfortunately a lack of information lately, but now it's clear what the tracklist is. It's a great gift and it's on a cd, just as u22 and what a great gift that was. Sure we get Acrobat, Dirty Day for release. That would be the E&I blu ray! There's nothing wrong with this gift, except the delays. Looking forward to this one!!
  9. We've got the I&E bluray already. The E&I bluray is in the pipeline. Then we'll get the European based setlist in high quality. But.... when it will be released is a mystery....
  10. Finally great news!! Great tracklist!!
  11. 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.
  12. Are the presales still happening?? Last news on the shows in The far east were from june 19th. What's the problem with an update on tracklisting and dispatching? If there are troubles then be clear to the fans. Now we don't hear anything, that's frustrating. The subscribers are very positive about this great gift, but the teasing of it doesn't please at all.
  13. It's starting to be ridiculous indeed. Not even a tracklisting or more artwork as promised.... It's like the band itself. Years and years waiting for releases, deluxe editions pop or r&h, the Joshua Tree dvd, e&i dvd. Instead of that multiple vinyl reissues in all colours of the rainbow. Come on U2... Get connection to your fans again!
  14. Last week I was surprised to hear Sunday Bloody Sunday at the end of episode 5 season 3. Great! But I think 'Acrobat' would have fit much better in that scene!!! Man that song should have been the main theme if this series. It would make the band 'hot' again!
