  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. 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 🤞

  4. 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.

  11. Music. Music. MUSIC. Music is why I like U2. I don't like U2 for the books, the prints, the T-shirts. They're all fine, but those aren't why I like U2. Physical versions of download-only releases such as The Eternal Remixes, or Ahimsa. CD, 12", or 7" - but if its a 7", you need more than just a 2 track 7" to justify the subscription fee. Maybe a 10th anniversary, CD version - or coloured vinyl variant 12" - of Wide Awake In Europe. It's the only release that many of us don't have. Secondhand prices of it are simply absurd. It'll fill a gap and still please the trainspot

  13. I dont have a problem with the content as such, the issue i have, personally is the format. CDs? It's 2021. think it should be on Vinyl. I'd be happy to pay say $70 per year, instead of $40, to make sure it's vinyl. The 2015 gift was on vinyl. 2017 was on vinyl. 2021 is on CD...

  21. 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.

  22. 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

  24. 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

  25. Music needs to be the first priority. I think there should also be the option that subscribers should be able to buy subscriber gifts from previous years if that makes sense. So for example, i joined in 2014, so missed out on U22, Artificial Horizon and From The Ground Up: Edge's Picks to name but 3. These 3 releases go for £50+ on Discogs. Obviously there will be subscribers who will have these (And many earlier gifts) so it'd be completely optional. The prints in 2016 were great, but i simply don't have the space for them currently.. Also as others have said, the nugs.net

  28. I for one am happy with CDs and would like to see the gifts continue in that medium. I prefer audio over video. I prefer unreleased material over releases material. And I love previously unreleased live stuff. Would love a CD of all the early demo tapes. All of them, not just the three songs done for iTunes. We know RTÉ has some of the early in studio sessions as well. Something like that would be top of my list. But I’ve been really happy with most of the gifts. Except the prints, sadly those are still in a tube somewhere.

  29. 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.

  31. Thanks for your words @Manohlive and there is no need to apologise. I did not feel singled out by your comment, I know you were speaking more generally and I simply replied to it. I hope you know that every time I reply to you its not with anger or sarcasm, it's me just having a normal conversation with a fellow fan. I do understand your point about how people (such as me) posting in this gift thread when it's not actually news about the gift can be frustrating, and a future gifts thread idea sounds great. I kinda made something similar before here. Maybe the two ideas could merge? I'd a

  32. You paid to subscribe. You should write whatever you wish. We're not always going to agree. It doesn't have to be a bad thing. My approach is that the gift was announced and is what it is, no matter the year or the gift. I have always thought a future gifts thread could be a good thing. All our wishes would be in one place. I wanted this gift to be a DVD of an American EI show. Even though I did not think it was going to happen, I still hoped. Creating a new thread is not something I am particularly good at doing. I suggest it and hope someone will. As much as I wish you could get Fr

  34. Well that one was disappointing! I shouldn't have got my hopes up... Shocking really, upscaling the same rough VHS source to "1080p" but I suppose it's been done just to update the thumbnail with the Rattle And Hum era U2 logo to match every other reupload. I guess this means the 35mm footage of Tempe is lost or they just decided not to have it restored?? Other Rattle And Hum footage has been restored and used on From The Sky Down, right??

  36. They should make previous years gifts available for standalone purchase. I'm sure there's a warehouse somewhere with old stock laying about and I would love to purchase the older gifts that I missed out on - such as U22 and From The Ground Up.

  40. I just walked my dog outside. We had a LOT of snow in a very short amount of time. For almost a week, I've been stomping down 2-3 feet of snow to form a track for her to walk. There is no room elsewhere. The sidewalks are like canyons of ice and snow. This track is between 1/3 and 1/4 mile long. It just got finished! No more wet boots and pant legs. I also woke up without a major migraine cycling. It's the first time in almost three weeks. My sinuses are still a mess but I could walk outside in the sunlight, as long as I wear my 😎

  41. The best present... "In Gods country" remastered video to be released tonight (19.02.2021). One of my favorite songs ... In days when the days are complicated, this is a wonderful gift from U2 for my today´s birthday. (I never knew In Gods country had an official clip)
