  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

  6. Some preshow reading. Not meant to be a downer, but a look at survivors just over 5 years out from the attacks. https://www.dw.com/en/bataclan-attack-how-survivors-cope-with-the-trauma-5-years-on/a-55543272 Most of us probably remember it as it was happening. We watched in shock. We worried about the band, the fans, our friends. Today, may be a healing day for some, or ripping off a bandaid for others, but either way, we will be here to carry each other. If you haven’t read @Madfl3a’s account of those days, I highly recommend it. https://www.u2andcoffee.com/2016/06/10/paris-mon-amour/

  8. 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.

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

  10. Opinions, ideas and point of views are not monolithic entities - they can be revised over time and changed and adjusted when it applies, even to a point in which a total change of course or an opposite direction is an obligation. What may have been acceptable some years ago is not necessary what is acceptable now... after all, no one is the same person that was years ago. The same applies for the use of certain words, like the one was bleeped on this broadcast... Maybe this article could be of interest... I think it explains clearly why it was wrong for Patti Smith to use it, then...

  11. Can you believe that September 25th marks 44 years of U2? Looking around the socials, there are several things going on to celebrate this occasion. Right here in the Zoo, we have a couple of things going on. Tomorrow, (Friday, 25 September), we have the 4th annual (if my calculations are correct) U2 T-shirt Day: https://zootopia.u2.com/forums/topic/41325-u2-t-shirt-day-25-september-2020/?tab=comments#comment-1198471 On Saturday, we also have a listening party for The Unforgettable Fire, here: https://zootopia.u2.com/forums/topic/41346-u2getherathome-a-celebration-of-th

  22. Let’s face it 2020 has been, well a bit shit. I’ll always remember though the great times we had with all the watch parties, official & unofficial. I cant wait to see everyone (when its safe, obviously) at a real life show somewhere soon.

  24. My wife Lisa, who is this account holder, recently passed away from lung cancer, exactly 39 years to the day after we first met as kids. She was an angel on earth and had been a huge fan dating back to the early 80's when we had a short breakup period. U2 became a big part of our reconnection, and became the soundtrack of our life and a borderline obsession for Lisa as we attended every tour, here in Boston, and traveling to many destinations. She fanatically pursued give-away opportunities and was an attendee at the Rattle Hum premier in Dublin in 1988. We have some great photos she took in

  28. So it's been about 15 years since U23D went around the world in IMAX 3D theatres... Now there's a whole new generation of U2 fans who NEED to see it.... I would have loved to do a poll, but it seems I am unable to do poll on this forum... Don't U2's new fans since 2005 deserve a chance to see this show in 3D, considering U2 won't release it for home media ...not to mention all of us who went around Europe seeing U2 on the Vertigo Tour ... What do you think?

I'll take it with me over the next three days. I hope everyone has a Happy and Blessed Easter if you celebrate it. If not, my best I can give to all. Thank you, U2.

  36. 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

  39. 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!!

  40. 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

  42. I got mine at Rock N Soul Records in NYC. They had a table outside, I gave them my wish list; they checked their stock and pulled what I wanted. I never had to go inside. They had everything I wanted except for the Dizzy Gillespie/Charlie Parker at Town Hall, which I was very bummed about.
