    So far I've avoided spoilers but I don't want to push my luck. Time to check out until I see the show for myself in June. Have fun everyone going to the start of the tour. I hope that we all get the songs we wish for. Talk to you again in early July. ✌

    I'm based in the States these days Anam but I've transported my fair share of records across the Atlantic in carry on. I know the struggle. Still miss the days of flipping through the albums in Leeside music up on MacCurtain Street digging for treasure. Love your username by the way. Wish I had thought if it.

    U2.com 2018 Subscription FAQ Thread

    Initially I was luke warm about this but I've grown more uncertain. A very brief search on eBay showed that these tracks are readily available and are not in the least bit rare. Also what is it with U2 and remixes? There seems to be no input from the band, they just hand the track off to somebody who has a free hand. Why so many all the time? Apart from the U2 organization no one else seems keen on them and yet they keep on coming.
  8. I'm ok with Bullet, love the bass/drum groove played loud. But I could really do without the extended rant Bono has stuck into it. On the i+e tour the "young man on the other side of the barrier," speal actually made me cringe. The JT30 version was much better as he kept faithful to the album version more or less. I'd be content if this tour focused on SOI and SOE with maybe a few Rattle & Hum songs done in the encore.

    Hi Hank! When buying membership for 2018 there was an option to choose either the 2017 JT vinyls or the then unannounced 2018 gift. Can you remember which you opted for?

    I think that "underwhelming" sums it up perfectly. Also lossless downloads really should be the norm. The sound quality of vinyl paired with 320kps mp3's is a head scratcher and smacks of "Feck it, it'll be grand. Throw it out there."

    The i+e prints were a huge let down for me. I've gone past the age when I hang band posters on my wall. The 2018 gift surprised me. Not what I expected but I'm sort of ok with it. Three remixes and some photographs? Sounds a little skimpy, but *shrugs* alright.
  13. Nope. I second the motion to retire Pride. Older fans have heard it a bunch and for newer fans it's a relic of pre-JT U2. Having played it every gig since 1984 surly the band themselves are going through the motions at this point.
