Totally Disgraceful......

Recommended Posts


oh dear. The photo makes me laugh. I don't take it seriously. It's very "rock star" to do and ridiculous at any age. Who the hell else besides a rock star could get away with it?

 

Cancel your subscriptions if you're so unhappy.

 

I'm having fun here and I feel no need to defend my interest in the band or their music because the enjoyment is for me and me alone.

good for you you are having fun, the point basher is making is that the band we grew up with have become carefree of what to give to the die hard fans after nearly 30 years of support only to find out a triple vinyl set can now be bought by any tom dick or harry after a cd version has come out. for these 2 items alone the cost comes to $85. and for that we get a lousy digital remix, which could have fitted on the normal cd version.

 

news reports on u2 that end up on other sites, but the official one cant even be bothered to wish the band members happy birthday.

 

news on the new dvd for instance, on atu2.com, nothing of it here.

 

its like having a season ticket to a football team, and they are playing shit, but you still go to the games because you love them so much. we have paid the sub fee, so therefore as much as we like to big up u2 and probably still will can complain as much as we want about the real issues. they seem to have forgot where they came from and its about time the whole u2 machine was brought back down to earth.

im not saying "die hard" fans deserve more than the "casual fan" but it would be nice once in a while for something on here to be like OH WOW I CANT BELIEVE IT................................U2 ARE??????

Well this site is run through fanfire, not U2. So if you're gonna blame anyone blame fanfire, not U2.

 

It's their fault its 50 bucks.

and paul fat cat signs on the dotted lines, has the final say.

Some really good points made in this thread.. it's a real shame that we have to buy the triple vinyl artificial horizon thingy.. it would have made sense to give that one to the subscribers.. but hey.. U2 are a business now and nothing we can say will change it. I have ordered it.. I will always order the things U2 fetch out cos I'm a collector, but I do think, too that they are getting greedy.. something I never thought U2 would do back in the early 80's.
yeah only the subbers should have got the vinyl.

I can't see how the subs package can be described as "exclusive" when they fetch out the vinyl that everyone can buy.. it doesn't seem fair to me, Mac..

nah it dont bb. it pains me to say this, but u2 are not on top of my live bands list. even if they bring out another tour, there are other bands i want to see next ahead of u2. this is mainly due to the fact i said earlier that my dream was to see them play 3 foot away from me, now that dream has been complete with radio one gig, the myth of u2 has kind of been broken and so up close you see them as 4 blokes. normal blokes. not gods. and with u2 of late i feel they seem to bury themselves in the production side where set lists suffer.

 

im straying now lol, but yeah. i think if u2 themselves dont get it right in terms of sales etc, i think it will be the end, or could be the end. what else has bono got left to say apart from the things we dont know about already.

 

and the vinyl is tight!

to be honest no it isn't

 

i spend more time in the none paid section with my friends than the paid section due to the fact it's just better there! No one really posts anythin

 

 

and no i didn't join just for for the presale tickets but what a f**k up that was! NOT telling us untill the last moment that their was no UK gigs this time around and then they were doing Glastonbury! Didn't bother me that they weren't doing UK but could have use code for Denmark tickets (which I REALLY wanted to be honest) if known straight away!

 

The shop is a load of crap as well for one thing there's no European 1st leg tour merch in it which kind pisses me off all though a lot of people don't use it as it takes AGES for things to get to them!

 

But hey at least give us the chance to buy something! U2 have European fans as well!

 

Chatroom would be wonderfull but last time this came up Baja said they'd need admins for the place and it would be better if we did it outselver which is a fair point but you know agreed a chatroom would be nice lol

 

I know i've only been around here for 1 year but I only use the forum to chat to friends anything else just doesn't alert me to be honest! Plus get more news through twitter!

 

 

but don't judge me for this just coz I've not been a total long time fan (Hey always loved U2 since I remember them can't help my age unfortunatly)

 

But I think it's a fair point and would I subscribe again not sure depends if anything GOOD happens!
