Wish I would get one! But since I'm currently a free member and also wasn't in the path of the eclipse (we got like a 70% eclipse) I doubt it. Really cool idea though!

Me too because I'm another "free member" and my area wasn't in the eclipse's path too.  I did share a laugh with a friend of mine after the so-called eclipse because I remember saying "That old lady named Mother Nature better  step-up her game because us Eastern, Washingtonians" need some fun too (just kidding)!!

I am in Kansas City and got my letter on Tuesday. Talk about great marketing...Send a letter to longtime fans who only live in the path of the eclipse for your new single titled Blackout. The stars would have to align to pull off a marketing plan like that. :D

I live in Nashville and got this letter the day after the eclipse. I was wondering if U2 had done another one of their "impromptu" concerts in honor of the eclipse, so I hopped on U2.com to see, but no such luck. Then saw a tweet that the new album is supposed to release on Dec. 1. Very excited! Love the mysterious element of this mailing - how FUN!!  Also, I didn't know until I read the article on surrenders' link, that the two silhouettes are B & E's children. Endearing
