    While I enjoy this channel immensely, there is absolutely no reason for profanity laced songs from the likes of Kanye or Kendrick to ever hit the U2 airwaves. This prevents me from listening at work and makes me turn it off in the car. Come on guys, we can find much better music than this.

    That is something that you will find across the board for subscription radio channels. However, I recommend contacting SiriusXM directly to voice your concerns.

    I was hoping we could agree to let the mods make any announcements of the newly remastered videos, even if we see them before they are officially posted here on U2.com.  I do not think anyone did it intentionally, however, when one of us announces a new release before they can, we take away their right to do so. This is a special thread. I can only speak for me when I say that if I was one of them, it would hurt me to announce any official news on U2.com if someone had already beat me to the punch.  If I was one of them, this thread would be one of the things I most loved about being a moderator for U2.com. 

    This is not aimed at anyone.  I easily could have posted a new one in my excitement. Please do not take this personally.  I'm writing this out of respect, not criticism.

    This is a thread about U2 videos on YouTube, not U2 videos on U2.com. I don’t think it’s wrong that anyone would post a video from a completely different source on a thread celebrating remastered U2 videos. That’s the joy of it. That they’re all shared by everyone and anyone. If I’m wrong then I’ll stop sharing them. 

    I think I can speak for all of the moderators here. We do thoroughly enjoy bringing/sharing good news on the boards; but what we love more is the interaction with members of the community. Without you all here, we wouldn't be here. Starting this thread was not something I had to do, but something I chose to do.  It is not my thread, it is not Max's or Bigwave's thread.  The thread belongs to all of us here in Zootopia. It makes me happier to see people commenting on the videos and how much they love them than it does to actually post them. We are all on different time zones here, so if someone sees that a new video has been added to the Youtube channel and it hasn't been posted yet, then by all means, add it for everyone to see. The only things that we ask are that the only videos added are the ones that have been remastered (it's ok to do wishful thinking about what might be next, but without a video) and to wait until the premiere of the video before adding it.

    I finally received my order today, also ordered on 30 October- I believe the T-shirt they have sent me is wrong. Trouble is there are no pictures of it now on the shop 😟 I hope you guys get you stuff soon 

    Check your confirmation email you received when you ordered. It’s possible that there may be an image on there.

    Yes - I would call that incontrovertible evidence! 😄 That’s very good to know - thank you!

    Reports of 360-degree cameras would be hard to make up - they have a very distinctive appearance (this was by me at the Newark show back in 2018):

    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.

    Found it! Turns out I'm not so good a sleuth. Made it down into the Records Room... One box ends with U2. So I had looked there. Hadn't thought it might be in the next box, stuck between Frankie Valli and Vampire Weekend! (TBF, I thought I was looking for a 7" jacket... Which, of course, would be in a whole separate box...)

    Thanks,

    Glad you found what you were looking for. 😀

    This is interesting to me... the Premium option seems to come with access to a 4K stream/download as well as a DVD. (This is according to the renewal page.) I don't have access to that presently, and I'd be thrilled to have a 4K version to download.  The "Standard" renew makes no mention of the Berlin show.  

    This is yet another example of my experiences over 20+ years in U2's various fan clubs:  U2's PR and fan relations have never been best served by the commerce/fanclub people at U2.com. This lack of clarity is yet another example. Why not simply give all the info now, up front? Why build up the drama? It's not like there is a lot of work to be done on the recording, the show was 18+ months ago and was basically mixed live for the radio anyway. 

     

    Anyway, I'm not going to renew until I know what I'm getting with which option.   If they wanted my money sooner, they could tell me up front exactly what each option gets me. 

    Sorry that you are confused. The renewal page clearly states what is with each package.

    Nowhere does it mention a download of the Berlin dvd. However, if you were a subscriber for 2020 and received the dvd, you should be able to stream it here: https://www.u2.com/stream. If you were not a subscriber in 2020, then the premium option will include the Apollo show CD/download AND the Berlin dvd/stream.

    OK, so bigger than I remember. But it's NOT filed with my LPs!?!? What madness is this?

     

    Thanks!

     

    ETA: How "thick" a book? Like eight pages? Not something like "From the Ground Up", right? (Sorry the OCD is kicking in)

    No worries. It took me a minute to find mine (apparently I had put it on the shelf with my tour programs). But yes, roughly 10 pages (20 if you count front and back), so not very thick.

    Confused with the renewal choices - standard and premium..The way they are named makes me feel like I could miss out on something!

    Am I right in saying the 'Premium' option just includes the 2020 gift if you haven't already got it? And I won't be missing out by not selecting 'Premium'? It's worded like it's a different subscriber access level!

    I've been subbed since 2014 so have all gifts apart from them R&H Dance Remixes (not lost sleep about not having them, though)!

    *Edit - Just wanted to add, happy with this gift - would love an ATYCLB Irving Plaza 2000 CD at some point though!

    If you have a copy of the Berlin DVD, then you only need the Standard. The Premium subscription is the newly announced gift, plus the previous year’s gift.

    Mine is active until 1st March 2021.If I renew now,will my subscription run from Jan 2021 to Jan 2022 OR March 2021 to March 2022? Plus,I haven’t received the email to renew subscription which I usually receive when the new gift is announced (I suspect if I don’t renew now,then that will arrive before 1st March 2021 when my current subscription expires) 

    It adds on to the current expire date, so March 2022.

    I hope it'll be the complete live show. I've found a video about it that someone uploaded to Youtube and the duration is one hour and a half, 18 songs in total...It´d be great!! Any Community Moderator or anyone who knows can answer me about this, please? Thanks a lot!!! 

    The only information we have is what was in the initial article. More information will be coming sometime in the new year.

A big hug for everyone!!!
