    Hello All!  I've been a fan since being introduced to U2 by college radio in 80s right before their popularity really exploded in the USA with the War album.  Getting older, but will never "outgrow" U2!  Only got to see them live once ... so far!  Glad to be here.


    P.S.  PM if anybody knows where I can get the "fruit" compilations?  There seems to be a lot of them, but I'm not having any luck.

    Welcome to Zootopia...

    Regarding the compilations... The only official one would be Melon: Remixes for Propaganda, which - as Manohlive mentions - was given to Propaganda subscribers in 1995.

    The other CDs with fruit names are not official - most of those remixes are lifted from singles, and many of those you can find on any streaming service (like Spotify or Youtube Music). This also applies for Melon: the remixes either appeared on previous singles or were part of future singles...

    As for looking for them on Zootopia (or any other album, single or other piece of memorabilia),  be aware that the rules of the board don't allow for sales of any kind (or offers to buy them).

    Hope the following helps:

    The reason that the CD's are being returned from Ireland to the U.S. is that an electronic customs declaration is either not completed correctly, or is not available.

    I explained the situation in a communication to the U2.com help-desk (after my CD's were returned to sender). The CD's were re-shipped to me, but the same thing has happened again. The CD's are now on the way back to the US, just like the originals were. The same thing has also happened to a friend of mine in Dublin.

    Information sourced from An Post website:

    If your item has been returned to sender or you are awaiting an update on your item, it is likely that the electronic customs declaration made by the retailer/sender for your item may have been insufficient or invalid according to Customs regulations. An Post cannot amend customs declaration so items with incomplete data must be returned. 

    (Ref: https://www.anpost.com/customs-information)

    thanks... will pass the information...

    Hi Max.  I've been in touch with customer support myself and they arranging for another cd to be shipped to me. It seems that An Post have been returning the cd's, possibly due to a customs issue, without contacting the intended recipients.  There could be a chance that the replacement will be returned too.  If alot of people in Ireland are having the problem maybe customer support are aware but would it be possible for you to flag it with someone just in case. Thank You

    Is it known the reason why An Post is returning the CDs? That would be important to know before taking any action... if you could provide any information about it, it would be great...

    Mine was dispatched on August 19th, and I’m still waiting 18 days later . Living in Ireland.

    Did anyone else have to wait  3-4 weeks after dispatch?


    Please check the tracking information on the Your U2.com Subscription order has shipped! email you received when the package was sent - from that link you can see when the package left and arrived to your postal office. From there you can have a rough estimate on how much time it should take to arrive...

    Hi Max or any one of moderators,

    just one last question is there anyone I can email to see when my subscriber gift is due to arrive? Just let me know best address to contact.

    thanks again Mary

    Please check the email with the subject: Your U2.com Subscription order has shipped! (once you receive it, in case it hasn't arrived yet). On this email, you will find a Tracking Number - this is for when the package leaves the U2.com warehouse until it reaches the customs office where you live - for the information about how much it will take from there until it arrives to your home, you would need to contact your local postal service. This information is still useful to get a rough idea how much it will take.

    Hi Max,

    Thanks for reply how do i send to the mod team as a test message on my phone not sure how to do this also.

    If you like can you pass it on to them for me or pass on the email address to me and I will do it.  Message is just below.

    message says delivery date 03/09 check out your options [LINK REMOVED]

    Name sounds dodgy but at this stage here in Ireland anyway we are looking at all links as if they are dodgy I am afraid.


    Hope this help and I can send it on to mod team if you send on email address.

    Thanks again.  Mary


    You are right, it's a dodgy link - better to not click it...

    the easiest way to send us a PM would be to go to the STAFF page - https://zootopia.u2.com/staff/ - From there you can choose the SEND MESSAGE option from one of the Moderation team profiles (those being Mich40, Bigwave or max tsukino) and send the message... In this case, it would be helpful if you send to us a screenshot of the message you received, ideally with the number from where you got it (but blank or hide your personal information), so we can elevate it to the u2comteam...

    btw and as a security measure, I removed the link from your original message...

    Hi all

    dont Know if anyone can help me. Am an Irish subscriber. Has anyone from Ireland received their 2021 gift yet?

    If you have how long ago did you receive it and how was it delivered (an post or courier company) and were there customs charges added? 

    Mine hasn’t arrived yet.

    received a text saying a delivery date is tomorrow with link but am afraid to click on it as we have been inundated with scam emails and text this year here.

    if anyone can help post me a reply.

    thanks a milion


    If it's OK with you, you can send to the moderation team via PM the link to see if it's legit...

    Is there interest in starting a separate Premier League thread? If so, I (or someone/anyone else) could make one


    It's probably better to have just one thread for football... or, if there's enough interest, to make it for general sports...

    The face mask looks like it is from Simple Minds????


    simple minds.jpg

    Not a Simple Minds exclusive motif (but it's true that it's something they have used for many years)... the image is an illustration of a Claddagh ring, which is - per wikipedia - is a traditional Irish ring which represents love, loyalty, and friendship. More info about the Claddagh ring.

    This one on the face mask, btw, was drawn by Bono...

    Hi Folks 

    I still haven’t received an email indicating a dispatch.

    Just wondering….

    Did people receive a dispatch email or did the gift just arrive unexpectedly?

    Has anyone in the UK or Ireland received their gift?


    Due to the number of subscribers, these are being sent by batches, so you will receive this email until the gift is being sent.

    Please give some time and patience... Anyone eligible to receive the Apollo CDs will receive that email....

    Thanks Max for your help. 👍. I'll try that in the am; and had a feeling i might have to break out the laptop. I've got the unzipped downloaded tracks onto both my iPad and iPhone. Just can't find an option to move them into my Apple Music app🌸

    I'm currently an Android user... haven't had an iPhone in years... I suppose there could be a way to make Apple Music to check every folder for any possible track on the phone or an iPad and import them, but every guide I've found involves a computer in one way or another, unfortunately...

    There was a 10 to 15 minute video remix of “Discothèque” where it documented “a day in the life” of the mirrorball. It was only shown once on MTV during a U2 video retrospective during the POP-era (obviously). Do you have any idea if that one will be coming? That would be wonderful if it were to be resurrected for all eternity.

    Unknown which videos are on the list for remasterization... no other option but to wait and see which ones are posted...

    Max and I were discussing that. He remembers one and I remember the one with the shopping cart. I can’t remember where I saw it though, but definitely not on MTV. 

    it's very likely that the video I remember was played in a club. As Mich says, definitely not MTV... (disclaimer: the 90s are - for the most part - a blur)
