Mac, I've got a question about the Zoo TV Sydney DVD. At the show, they performed Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World, but it was cut from the DVD because of Bono giving someone a bottle of wine. Is this included on the Achtung Baby reissue?

 

It's the same DVD as the DVD from live in sydney. Only the dvd face art is different.

batigol']Hi everyone,

 

I ordered my Uber on August 9 from Amazon Canada. Was told yesterday the item was now on backorder.

 

I've asked them if they can guarantee that they'll get it for me, but I just keep getting a standard response that doesn't answer my question.

 

What should I do? Can I be confident enough that they will get one for me and send it out?

 

 

I would look elsewhere. There's a lot of comments accross the internet that certain Amazon sites can not meet there commitment to customer orders.

 

Amazon UK only allowed ordering of there allocation and no more. Once they were reserved, they put a block on anyone else trying to order.

 

I ordered mine as well on Aug 9th and got the same answer. They shipped out all the ones that had priority shipping first. They upgraded me bit I am keeping my fingers crossedInteresting....after some email discussion with an ``automated'' help service, the expected delivery date went out to December 15. Today's it's changed to November 7....would this mean they've actually sourced the item? I hope so...i'd be devastated to miss out.

My SD turned up from Amazon UK today, it seems they are now getting more stock through...most likely from Germany. Still waiting for the Uber to arrive from them.

I say this about Amazon UK sourcing these from Germany because there is a German "FSK 12" green label on the front of the box, bottom left hand corner (the sticker is referring to the rating of the included DVD). 

Somewhat annoying though, because it's underneath the shrink wrap. I haven't opened the box set yet. I don't want to end up trashing the box by trying to remove the German FSK 12 sticker. 

Anyone else in the UK had a SD set arrive from Amazon with the German sticker on it? Part of me think's it a nuisance because I don't know how or if it can be easily peeled off...the other part of me think's it pretty cool because of the fact that is IS German!

The funny thing is that I ordered from amazon.co.uk (also saying the discs were from Germany - which is appropriate, if you really think about it) , BUT it has the FBI warning on it, just like the discs I bought when I was still living in the US.

Do all copies of the SD box set have the FBI warning on it?

(Back on topic: my copy of the set didn't have the German FSK sticker on it - sorry!)

Is that the real reason that TTTYAATW was cut from the video/DVD?

If so, that is REALLY lame! mad.gif

u2jackie']Does anyone know if the 2 cd reissue is available in stores or is this all online? Also, is u2.com the only place that is selling the 2 cd deluxe edition w/ From the sky down??

you can buy it on line at amazon and the like.  u2.com appears to be teh only place that includes teh dvd in this edition

 

And even then it's only from the UK/European versions of the shop - the US shop has a 2-CD version only. It appears that the UK/European versions have the DVD instead of the 2nd CD.

Apparently it was an underage girl. Some people thought the band were unsatisfied with their performance of that song. But apparently that was all just speculation, Ned O'Hanlon said that the real reason was that the DVD was too long and needed cutting.

Forgot to get the missus to show me the number on the side of the Uber box though, this will be a long wait (next year) till I get my hands on it

And my 4LP box is there too

That litho is going to be worth the wait, the Ãœber too! And the Vinyl I think will turn out to be the most valuable/collectible of all the sets! Take good care drunkchicken! Hurry home!smile.gifThanks very much baby, very nice of you to say so!! I think I will be back in Germany at the start of February - I will spend my birthday unwrapping my Uber set, Vinyl box, Pink Floyd "Wish You Were Here" Immersion Set and Coldplay "Mylo Xyloto" pop-up albumroll.gifI think I am addicted to buying expensive, elaborate box sets LOL
