  1. I would like to see more content and value within the subscriber specials. They could release a live show every quarter for subscribers only, available to download as MP3s and to stream, but not physically as this would be too big of a cost and would have to be saved for the yearly gift. If the U2.com model looked like this I wouldn't complain at all: Yearly gift - available digitally and physically. Q1 Subscriber Special - Live Recording January - U2.com release a list of shows fans can vote for February - End of February voting closes March - U2.com release the live recordi

  2. I’ve admittedly been a harsh critic of several of the past U2 fan club releases, particularly remix material that has been available elsewhere (e.g., “Duels” and the Desire/When Love Comes To Town 3D remixes with unimaginative artwork); and odd-sized prints that cost significantly more to frame than they are worth. Sorry; I never need another U2.com print. As a vinyl collector, I prefer vinyl as the physical format created for fans. While the 10-inch singles are nice and have typically had tremendous artwork, they’re more of a novelty and do not hold a significant amount of audio.

  3. Hi all, after speaking to fellow fans, we thought it would be a good idea to have a dedicated thread in one place to list all of our ideas for future subscriber gifts and subscriber specials. In the past the mod team have asked us what the fans would like to see, so having all our ideas in one place would be a good idea. The purpose of this thread is to provide constructive and realistic ideas and suggestions. I'll go first. Subscribers Special - Pro Shot footage of a live song performance - once per month Using The Joshua Tree Tour 2019 as an example we can see that U2's social med

  5. I like listening to early demos of tracks (Kindergarten Achtung Baby) and even sound checks because I love the raw form. So demo albums would be a great win for me. I think u2.com subscribers or people thinking of subscribing aren't exactly your casual fan (especially in quiet non touring years) so risks can be taken! If Bonos voice doesn't sound great or The Edge's guitar is off, we won't care, we'll love it! Another good gift idea, which other people have alluded to would be a high quality picture book (like that really expensive product design book Apple released a few years ago), with

  6. You should take a look at The Alarm's new fan site: The Alarm Central. https://thealarm.fan.direct/web/wall It just started up, but it's got every studio album available, links to videos, swag, chats, etc. A pretty comprehensive fan experience. I understand U2 is too big to have weekly chats on Zoom with their fans, but I think the overall experience could be improved a little bit, as many have said, with regular access to more music and videos on the site.

  7. í would like a blu-ray of ALL the Super8 & 16mm film footage shot during the process of creating the "Achtung Baby" album ~ from the broom cupboard STS sessions, to the Hansa Ton / Winter in Berlin footage, to the Dogtown in Dalkey recording, to the Anton photography sessions in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Morocco. We saw pieces of it in promo material at the time of release, and as 'interference' on the "Achtung Baby (the Videos, The Cameos And A Whole Lot Of Interference From ZooTV )" VHS tape. A 'whole lot' perhaps, but not THE whole lot. There was also sections of it littered throu

  9. Just looking back over the 16 gifts we've had in the past - 10 CDs (one that also came with a T-shirt, one with a book), 1 book on its own, 3 vinyl, 1 set of art prints, and 1 DVD. Clearly everyone in this thread has wildly different preferences, but for what it's worth, here are mine: I've been happy with all of the CD gifts (some were better than others but they all seemed like a decent idea at least), and it was nice when they came with something else as a bonus. Books are always welcome and accessible to almost everyone (I'd love to see Willie's diaries from the past few tours, which are i

  10. A book with all the graphics and images they've used over the years, with some backstory insights, would be sweet.

  11. Previously unreleased live material from all eras of U2's career would be my wish. Complete concerts if possible.

  12. I can only fully agree with the original post. There’s nothing worse on u2.com than getting a short clip of a song live knowing they must have filmed the full song and that we’ll likely never see the whole performance. I’d genuinely rather not see anything than a 30 second teaser. Also for next year a zoo tv show from early in the tour is a perfect idea. These shows are amongst the best in the bands history. Stockholm would be a great obvious choice. However, it doesn’t even need to be as specific as sticking to a certain show or tour I just want them to keep on making the fanclub gift a live

  13. I think this is an awesome idea! I would love to have the Berlin show that was put out on dvd for subscribers in audio format as a gift in he future. I would also love live at red rocks released on audio format as a gift sometime.

I just renewed.... obviously the mighty Fly won’t let a Covid 19 pandemic prevent an incoming ZooTV 30th anniversary tour......would he? ‘you didn’t come all the way out here to catch TB now did you !?’* *Dr Nick acknowledges Covid is not related in any way to tuberculosis Zoovid22 ? Zoodemic 23? Zoorona. we can but hope 🤞
