  4. Happy Birthday, Bono! ๐Ÿ˜Ž Two of the men I admire most in my life were born on May 10th: you and my Dad (my Dad had it first by 15 years, though). This is still the background of the screen on my phone; this picture also reminds me of one of the best U2 shows I have ever seen (July 1, 2018 - MSG #3, e&i tour) - have a great day!

  7. My good thing for yesterday is that I got to visit 2 libraries and borrowed 7 books - some of which I didn't even know had been released yet. I still don't know when the library where I work will re-open, but things are steadily getting back to normal in terms of being able to borrow from everywhere else I was also able to buy 2 books from a local independent bookshop and my dad and I had 2 very nice take-away lunches from a nearby cafe for ยฃ5 in total Although I did learn that take-away soup in a cup can get quite messy

  8. Check your e-mails, if you haven't done so recently - according to the e-mail about this set, apparently, in addition to the 2 CDs and nice packaging, we are getting...a facemask too! ๐Ÿ˜„ This added feature could be part of the delay, I suppose. Anyway, that's a cool extra! ๐Ÿ‘

  13. I always like to write up a little something for Bono's birthday, I guess this year I got a bit carried away ๐Ÿ˜… So err... yup. This : - Happy B Day - Iโ€™m no writer, Iโ€™m just a girl who likes to put words on paper. Iโ€™m not sure why the words decided to come out this way today, Maybe itโ€™s just a big day. A B day. A day I want to celebrate like I would for any other mate, For being a music fan often means having a best friend youโ€™ve never met. You donโ€™t know me. I donโ€™t know you. But through the

  16. Hey! This topic may become more active again! ๐Ÿ˜Ž I am seeing The Musical Box (a Peter Gabriel-era Genesis tribute band) on the Saturday after Thanksgiving this year (i.e., November 27th), and Iโ€™m seeing Steve Hackett again (the classic guitarist from that same era of Genesis) in April 2022! ๐Ÿ˜Š However, my first show will be Unforgettable Fire (an outstanding U2 tribute band) again in August - I just havenโ€™t gotten around to buying the ticket yet. Concerts again! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  22. charleswise you are absolutely correct. If I wanted to right now I could renew again which would take my membership to 2023 and in doing so I would surely be entitled to the 2022 subscription gift otherwise what else would I be adding another year for.

  23. I just renewed like normal last year, had extra money at the time and it let me add another year. I guess Iโ€™m confused as to why I wouldnโ€™t get the same benefits regardless as to when I pay for the membership. If I paid for 10 years today at $500, Iโ€™d only get the gift for one if the years? Iโ€™m in other fan clubs and have always been able to renew for multiple years and still get the gifts I.e. Pearl Jam. I mainly like to do it so I wonโ€™t forget and let it lapse lol.

  26. This is the long list I've got lined up for the next year. Elbow at the Brighton Centre, 18 September with the family. Was meant to be in April last year for my brother's birthday but we all know what happened. Biffy Clyro at the Forum, London, 2 November. Was meant to be last month but got delayed given the timetable for restrictions being lifted. Kid Kapichi at Patterns, Brighton, 13 November. 5 days before my birthday! Was meant to be in March last year, then got rescheduled to March just gone, but again, pushed back by the timetable. Last week I bagged tickets for Royal Bloo

  27. Well, it's a nice thing to hope for, but the reality unfortunately is the opposite: the tickets are selling like hotcakes. The Philadelphia date was completely sold out in one day (Genesis is absolutely huge here; 70s progressive rock in general is, but especially Yes and Genesis); NYC already has a 2nd show, but both shows are virtually sold out already too. I got tickets I wanted for The Stones and The Who in the past that way too (i.e., days before/day of the show) - however, I very much resent having to shop for tickets that way as some kind of "new normal". You can luck out, but you

  29. The Musical Box are great and are worth catching. You'll thank yourself for seeing them. ๐Ÿ‘ Seconded on your assessment of TM - that is how they think now. It's atrocious supply-side economics on steroids...

  30. I've heard great things about The Musical Box@dmway. My gut feeling is that I'm going to be attending less concerts post covid. The dynamic pricing model is a tough pill to swallow..... Me: How much are tickets? TM: How much are you willing to pay?

  32. My dog's coat badly needs to be pulled. I'm waiting for a nice day so I can do it outside with my Irish Terrier mentor. It's complicated and a lot of work. I did get it raked and brushed to where there were no mats. She looks a lot better. It's so long and she's so wild that she looks all scruffy again. Lol It was a good day, despite being in a winter jacket. Last Saturday, it was 88 degrees by me. (31 C) I don't know how to dress! ๐Ÿค”

  33. I have been checking daily and finally yesterday evening (UK time) the first three tracks were up there for download - I Will Follow, Electric Co and Out of Control - but they disappeared an hour later from the Account page. I checked this morning and, lo and behold, three tracks are up for download again but this time Angel of Harlem, Red Flag Day and Wild Horses are the three. I now have six tracks which is great. Sounding good! I wonder if U2.com mistakenly let loose the first three tracks and changed their mind/realised the mistake or whatever and took them down? Right time right place you

  34. I got the first 3 tracks yesterday. When I checked my account info today they were gone. I just checked again and the zip file was back. Only this time the 3 tracks are RFD, Angel, and Wild Horses. So I've received 6 tracks so far.

  36. The Promise Dec 2020 - "First downloads, track listing details and news on delivery coming in early 2021" The Reality May 2021 - Track listing - Yes Downloads - None Delivery - Not even close I think we are past early 2021 and its the same every year. I really don't understand why in the digital/streaming age, if you are eligible for the fan club gift its not accessible straight away on your account?

  38. Congrats! (Yay) My mom gets her second vaccination in two days. My good thing: My dog is back after a weeks' absence. She is sleeping next to me after chasing me around my apartment for a rowdy brawl. I was very sick for a week after my second Moderna vaccine. I had sent her elsewhere so she would have fun. I had not seen her for eight days. I was very lonely. It feels great. Second Moderna vaccine: I got walloped again. It's not horrible. I did sleep for a week. Anyone who gets migraines: Save a few days of the 10 we get every month to take rescue meds. You'll proba

  39. That's a whole other question. I'm not fanatical about the royals myself, and the idea of one family being put above the rest of us does look increasingly outdated - especially if you don't believe the religious aspect. Equally, I wouldn't like the idea of our politicians having any more power than they already do - especially some of the current lot. We've seen in America and Brazil how you can very easily end up with very unsuitable people being president. And a number of other European countries still have monarchies (Netherlands, Spain, Norway etc) and they seem to be happy wit

  40. I still have mine hidden with my other treasures. it's a favorite U2 material possession. I was gonna try and use it as a key chain. Lol It did not work. The dots on this 'floor shaking camera and cam footage being jumpy' just connected. You guys rocked so hard that you stopped the 360 cameras from getting a decent filming? That's very U2, at least for me.
