  1. Physical formats create the pleasure of listening music at home, it´s my opinion. Still purchasing vinyls, CDs and DVDs.

  2. I think that was one if you look at the right side of the stage, directly under the lamp you can see side stage. (Photo credit to someone else, not mine) Here it is in one of my photos, right there at Bono. I can say that the floor was shaking like crazy and any video footage would have been highly affected by it. I remember somewhere between I Will Follow, Out of Control and Electric Co, the floor was shaking so much, my friend and I held on to each other to keep from falling. I remember thinking that if the floor collapsed, at least I was having the time of my life.

  3. Oh, that's a stunning gift for 2021 - that was the band at their purest & best in the modern day world of technology. To anyone that was there - you have a lifetime memory to cherish. Happy New Year.

  4. With all the negative news these days-it's nice to sign into this website and see the pic of U2 for the Apollo Show promo. I'm adding it to my wish list.

  6. All these formats should be available forever, just like books. Streaming is ok, but to be depending on a provider, internetquality etc. etc. Nice for discovering new music, but for new and high resolution audio/video cd's/dvd's/blu-rays/vinyls should be there for collectors. It would be a very dull world for the real musicfan/collector. So very pleased the gift is a cd again and for the die-hard digital fans there's a download too!!

  7. I completely agree with all of the above - since JT got a double dip on Deluxe Editions, I fully expect AB to get the same treatment. (I hope that there will be more that is unique to a new AB Deluxe set than there was between the two JT sets (frankly, I thought the 2007 JT set was better than the 2017 version)). I also think that a tour supporting a new album and a AB anniversary tour are not necessarily mutually exclusive. You could easily do both: AB in full, selections from a hoped-for new album, “Streets” w/ a handful of other classics...and there’s a complete setlist! 😎 I also

  11. To be honest I always assumed that the Apollo release would be incomplete and edited. That seems to be the norm for U2 nowadays. (Look at the NYC show on JT30 deluxe and Chicago on ATYCLB deluxe). We are getting previous unreleased live material which hands down beats the thirty year old remixes we've gotten in recent years. Obviously the full show would be ideal but that seems unlikely.

  13. I think I can speak for all of the moderators here. We do thoroughly enjoy bringing/sharing good news on the boards; but what we love more is the interaction with members of the community. Without you all here, we wouldn't be here. Starting this thread was not something I had to do, but something I chose to do. It is not my thread, it is not Max's or Bigwave's thread. The thread belongs to all of us here in Zootopia. It makes me happier to see people commenting on the videos and how much they love them than it does to actually post them. We are all on different time zones here, so if someone

  15. Reality check here. these are very much first world problems on the grand scheme of things. I guess The U2 business don’t ‘need’ to offer these subscription offers. But they do and in public life you’ll never please all the people all of the time!

  17. I’ve started a u2 vinyl collection and as much as I like vinyl now I still like having a cd as a physical back up to a download. If my MacBook was to break somehow and I only had vinyl as back up that’s me lost the tracks whereas with a cd I can just burn that onto iTunes. But would I complain at a vinyl/download set no just prefer cd. Dvd definitely can’t be replaced by vinyl they’re not comparable formats. Blu Ray and 4K is better but I thought the Berlin dvd was good picture quality compared to there old DVD’s. More people own a cd and DVD player than a vinyl and blu Ray player so that has

  18. Well, there are plenty of people, both here and in general, who still enjoy CDs and DVDs. Your personally finding them “insignificant” doesn’t make such a belief an objective fact. (Also, I don’t quite understand why you are using your love of vinyl to impugn DVDs, since vinyl doesn’t have a visual component.) However, I have often wondered why audio gifts aren’t offered in multiple physical formats. If a choice were offered in advance (for example, at the time of one’s membership renewal) for what format one prefers if a gift in any given year is an audio one, more subscribers’ wishes co

  26. Hmmm...beautiful things. My husband survived a massive heart attack, spend days in ICU then the heart unit. Only time I have ever driven that fast was on 9/11. If I had waited for paramedics he would be dead. So that is a beautiful thing. I am spending 5 days/nights a week with my only granddaughter. She practically lives at my house now. LOVE IT! That's beautiful. Looking for the good under this flaming dumpster of TRASH. Oh and live music will be returning to our stages at the end of January here! THANK GOD because my husband hasn't worked at his job since March 13th 2020 and he is cleared t

  29. Good Evening Like other fans have mentioned, I am really pleased that there s a physical product available. I prefer to listen to my music on physical products like cd and vinyl, but I also have digital versions which are loaded on my U2 iPod for listening when I am in the car. Kind Regards Neil

  30. I agree with this also. Different if the show was only played last week and they took a few weeks to master it but we’re talking about a show that was played more than 2 years ago now. Downloads straight away would make the wait for the physical item seem much better.

  34. Looking forward to this didn't Steve Lillywhite mix the audio for it?Interesting to read Red flag 🚩 day wasn't included on the Sirus fm broadcast,why was that song abandoned near the end of the E&I tour when they had spent so much time getting it right such a shame as it was one of the better songs on SOE, and as for Little things not getting played on that tour is one of the biggest mysteries in U2's history.

  35. 45, 585 - New Year counting. It was snowing earlier Although it's melted away fairly quickly now that it's sunny. I wrote nearly two pages of a short story last night. My goal for this year is to finish at least three writing projects - one probably only needs another chapter, one is a collection of short stories that I've been working on for 2-3 years now and the third one is a novel draft that I started back in 2014, but which I've been having new ideas about recently. At least if I can get the first drafts finished, then I can start polishing and revising them further. I've fou

  37. I think you’re going to get your wish. I don’t think they would cut that one. IMHO, I think their playing it on that night helped them to rediscover how good that song is live and, consequently, they ended up including that song during the 2nd half of the European leg for the e&i tour. (They did play it on the first or second night of e&i in the States, but it was dropped shortly thereafter.) If they end up cutting a song, it will probably be “Red Flag Day” because that was the song left off of the original SiriusXM broadcast. But, like you, I hope it ends up being the whole show,

  38. I think at least the lads (bono & edge) showed on RTE last week that they've 'still got it! - whatever it is!' to quote Bono. Yeah, can't see anything live outdoors or indoors, and quite what they've collaboratively been up to over the past year is anyone's guess. Let's go for the hope of a little 'EP' - half a dozen little nuggets to keep us all sane!?😃

  39. Well, and this response is with both humor and seriousness. The wisdom in the expression “once bitten, twice shy” is at play here. As we all know, there have been many years here where a gift announcement has been for an item which is wonderful, but the end product ends up not living up to its full potential. If you look at the original description for this year’s gift, the singular “CD” is used. Now, this could mean one of two things: 1) “CD” in format (as opposed to vinyl), or 2) “CD” as in 1 CD instead of 2. The full set would require 2 CDs. So, the comments hoping for a full sho

The setlist is also here on-site (you just have to scroll down past all of the Twitter pictures on your phone - the setlist location is normal on a computer) : https://www.u2.com/tour/date/45561543 (My favorite review is from “Michelle in Alabama” - I wonder if she’s someone well-known around here... 😄) Now, let’s hope we’re getting the whole show and not just “selections”. 🍀🍀🍀
