  1. Important note about Twitter - as far as I understand, everyone can get the "verified" checkbox. You have to be extra careful there.
  2. Long story long - in January this year, I purchased a 2018 U2.com Gift Subscription for my girlfriend, so she can register her own account and we get an extra pre-sale code for the I+ tour. Item description - U2TGCLB U2com13 Standard New Membership: 2018 Gift. Unfortunately, despite what the order confirmation, invoice and U2.com Shop description said the code could not be redeemed for a 2018 subscription. Instead, it could be redeemed only for 2017 subscription gift - which is not what was purchased.. All my attempts to get this resolved were futile, as I was given a runaround by the customer support. If I sent an email, they sent me to complete contact form on U2 Shop. If I completed the Shop form, I received a reply that they're unable to help and I should call. If I called, it's either no reply or agent just wrote down (supposedly) my info and will have some one call me back. No one ever did call me back. The giveaway! So, here we are today. I have the code still available and it can still be used to redeem for a U2.com 2017 subscription. If you are a free subscriber and would like to become a member, leave a comment here. I'll check back in a few days. And from all eligible comments I'll draw up one lucky winner. There are only two rules to participate, you must not be a current paid member (duh) and must have an account that's at least 3 months old.
  3. And Beautiful Day, WOWY. Some are overplayed (One, Pride, WOWY), some just aren't played very well any more (Elevation, Beautiful Day) so they all lose the effect they used to have. I wouldn't mind they were interchanged with other songs during shows. So they're more rarer now....
  4. AB was reissued already a few years back...
  5. Doesn't mean anything. Every artist says that every time.
  6. What have done all the fans from the countries where U2 have never been to? Why do I have to travel abroad every single time I want to see U2 live? Sometimes they come to Scotland, sometime they don't.
  7. Vinyl? Just learn the songs and sing them yourself! Ain't no one got time for that new age witchcraft!
  8. U2 and their management should prohibit resale of tickets.
  9. I have a subscription - Experience. And my girlfriend bought one for herself too - Innocence. We used both pre-sale codes under my TicketMaster NL account and under my credit card.
  10. Yeah, depends on airlines - 6-9 months seems to be the norm. Also, look into sites like Google Flights or ITA Matrix. While you can't buy tickets from them directly, they are great search services to find cheaper tickets without having to go thru each airline site.
  11. Keep trying. From experience, even in general sale tickets can pop-up again. I scored 4 GAs in general sale for I+E tour an hour after a show had "sold out". Don't lose hope.
  12. It's like a CD, with almost any song ever recorded.
  13. I'll have to disagree. As someone who hasn't let their subscription lapse for 10+ years without missing a day, who was a subscriber on the previous site version from Vertigo tour days, I think that the moment you let is lapse, you lose your seniority. There really isn't a change for this tour compared to I+E and TJT tours. Anyone who was a paid member at a certain cut-off date was put in the first presale group; anyone who joined after - 2nd group. It was really similar to the current model even during 360 tour. Anyone who was a paid member at a certain cut-off date was in first presale group, and anyone who resubbed/joined after were put in newer groups. The only difference was that there were more groups for recent joiners/resubscribers... something like 3 or 4 groups in total: oldest members, people who joined after tour was announce, people who joined when tickets went on sale. So really, for the last several tours it been the same model. What I would like them to have is more recognition to subscribers who are paying members tour or no tour, non stop. As an example, introduce another pre-sale tier for people, say, who have been subscribed since the last tour (and maybe include an extra ticket or two ;-) ). It would be a nice way for the band and management to show appreciation.
  14. I don't know how to play any instrument except air-guitar. And I'm not a girl. And I don't dance. It's not fair to people like me who have definite and absolute 0 chance of getting onto stage with the band. Unless I jump the rail and barge onto stage uninvited. NOT FAIR! It's unaccountable from U2 to ignore fans like me.
  15. I work at an IT service-desk and get the same computer-illiterate people calling every day about the same problems. They don't remember their password from 15 minutes ago, they don't know where Start is, they don't know how to made text bold in Word, they don't know how to do IT stuff that's mandatory for their work, they don't know how to read. While most are nice people, it's very frustrating and boring to explain the same trivial thing over and over again, while I could be more useful helping people with actual IT problems. But none of that comes remotely close to the frustration I get when reading the same questions, the same posts about the stuff that's clearly explained in FAQs. If I were a mod, I'd last about 2 days until I told someone to f*** off and s**** a d**** c****. So yeah, good job mods! You are truly extraordinary!
  16. I, for one, don't see why so many people have their panties in a twist over the video. Is it because of Trump and his KKK buddies?
  17. I have a playlist for U2-related songs. It mostly consists of songs that are played before U2 take the stage, songs that band members have mentioned that they like, songs like "My Mistakes were made for you" because it got featured in Adam's vlog around 360 era, etc.
  18. For Amsterdam I had the options to have e-ticket PDF and various shipping options. Shipping to Latvia was something like 15E, which was less then I paid for Helsinki and Frankfurt for 360.
