  1. ...and a certain cast of recurring characters that will remain nameless, I'd bet.
  2. still looking for 2 ga's for atlanta show if anyone ends up with extras... thanks!

  3. yeah... i don't know what happened with dvd-audio... when i worked for warner-elektra-atlantic in the early 00's, they put a few releases and it seemed like it would become the next big format, and it seemed to have fizzled just as quickly...
  4. hey, i'm not arguing taste. to each his own, whatever floats your boat. we all listen to music in different ways... i was just attempting to retort to that old argument that vinyl doesnt sound as good... p.s.- if you know where to look, you can still find vinyl reasonably priced... the new release, newly pressed vinyl are definitely overpriced marketing tactics, but for me, a guy who unloaded much of his vinyl back in the day for the revolutionary cd. replacing that collection can get costly, but if I can replace an old album for $10 or buy the download for $10, I'm taking the record. My choice... That said, I will also say that I'm not much of a space-aged, digital whiz kid and don't know much about the mp3/flac/wav/etc... to me, they're all downloads!
  5. from u2.com: UPDATE JANUARY 2018Following dispatch of initial orders in December, there were unexpected delays in production of the four 10” discs of The Joshua Tree Singles Vinyl Collection: 1987 & 2017. Production is now underway again and dispatch will resume in early February. We’ll email you as soon as your copy hits the post so that you know when to expect it. It's frustrating, I know...
  6. The only thing the band can be faulted for here is signing the deal with Live Nation. Now Live Nation promotes the shows, and as the parent company of Ticketmaster, handles ticketing, as well as all merch for U2 and, while I'm not 100% sure of this, they run u2.com also (see very bottom of u2.com home page), which would include subscriber gift. So... Live Nation should be the source of all angst, not the band directly. Just sayin'
  7. if you don't have a turntable, how can you say that?
  8. Agreed. I think anyone who doesn't think vinyl sounds as good, must have been listening to one of those 90's albums "released on vinyl for the first time" that was just basically pressed from a recording of the CD. Either that or they need a better sound system... Anyone who hasn't put the headphones on, dropped the needle, and kicked back with an open gatefold and liner notes you can read without a magnigying glass hasn't truly lived (IMHO)
  9. CD's are going away... https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/best-buy-is-pulling-cds-from-stores-and-people-are-freaking-out/ar-BBIK9Ej?li=BBnb7Kz If you care about the art of the liner note and are a believer in a tangible, physical format, go out and invest $100 in a decent turntable! If you're happy with soulless digital files, I support your requests also, though.

    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    I normally wouldn't. With this new verified fan BS and the way other artists are doing it, I took a chance that buying from here might help my chances for ticket verification. Not sure it had anything to do with it, but I was in innocence group and had no problem getting a code or my GA tickets...

    I have been discussing that with a friend for years! There's great audio of them singing together at an early 80's Simple Minds gig on youtube... check it out.

    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    I'm loving it. Although I find it lame that pre-ordering the LP from u2.com couldn't (or wouldn't) ship it to arrive by street date. I could have ordered from any other on-line retailer and had it delivered today (for cheaper, I'm learning) I won't get until Monday. Very weak...

    General Sales WITHOUT CODES this morning?

    Just FYI... looks like tickets are available now for Atlanta with no code. I just checked, you can get 2 tickets at the $175 price point still, but it looks like nothing but $175 or $329 are available.

    Problems with General Sale

    Congrats! From what I'm seeing, you're one of the lucky few.
