    An interesting detail from the 2019 gift I noticed a while ago, but only remembered to bring it up here recently.

    A few thought it was curious that TLTTGYA was included on the "Experience" disc when it wasn't performed on the e&i tour - an accurate observation, but I think we're all happy that the performance of it from the Rome JT anniversary show from 2017 was included.

    However, did anyone else notice that "Iris" on the "Innocence" disc is from the e&i tour (Montreal, 6/6/18) and not from any show on the i&e tour in 2015? I wonder why that happened. Surely "Iris" was performed at every show in 2015 - was this Montreal show's version in 2018 better than every single performance of it in 2015? 🤷‍♂️


    (Maybe the mods here lobbied to have it be included - wasn't the 6/6/18 Montreal show the "3 mods meet" show?)

    Yes, Montreal was our meet-up; and no, we had no influence on the track list/location at all. If I could have lobbied for a song from Montreal, it would have been Love is Bigger, but the one that is on there is beautiful and I’m not complaining.

    Ref. The Joshua Tree tour :Auckland_Moon:film that was made.  I read somewhere that this is be getting released later this year in cinemas/ movie theatres and then a home release.  So double wooohooo


    PS: do we get a u2.com shop discount code for resubbing this time?  As I haven't received one yet :POPCart_01:

    You should get one, according to the renewal notice. I haven’t renewed yet, so I don’t know 100% that it’s there yet, but have you tried logging out and back in to see if it’s on your account page?

    I just renew my subscription. Something strange occurred: I live in Sofia, Bulgaria and my postal code is 1404. So, it must be: "Sofia 1404". And it always was like that in my previous resubscriptions. But now it automatically changed and my delivery address for the new gift is "Sofia 23 1404". If I look in "My account" on my profile - it is still "Sofia 1404". Anybody else have the same problem?

    You may want to use Contact Us form on the help page: https://www.u2.com/help to make sure it stays correct.

    Well i think this is a great gift, so thank you. my only query is that i renewed about 10 days ago and was offered the 2019 gifts - do i need to do anything to get the 2020 gift?

    From the home page article: 
    “If you've already renewed your subscription for 2020, this is the gift that will be dispatched to you.”

    So you should be good to go.

    Matchbox Twenty is touring this Summer with a stop in Chicago.  I might take flack for it but I love them.  They are great live.  I'm scoping out a single seat which gets discounted.

    I’m going to the show in my city in August. It’s them and The Wallflowers. 

    Thats not my next show though. My next show is The Airborne Toxic Event. They also put on a fabulous live show.

    Can anyone tell me what you get for the $75 fan club membership vs the usual $40 fee. doesn't like much different for a doubling of the price.

    The $75 dollar renewal would include the previous year’s gift as well, if you did not receive that one too. It’s really for people who are renewing for the first time. Gives them the opportunity to backtrack a bit, so to speak.

    Just wait. Memberships were extended until the end of January. U2 hinted that members will be able to get a copy of the full IE Berlin Concert and that more info is coming in January. It’s pretty obvious that this is the next gift and memberships were pushed back to allow members to renew once the formal announcement is made...

    It is not obvious that the concert is the next gift. Making assumptions like that can lead to disappointment. Please wait for the official announcement to come.

    Can someone help me on this and I would appreciate a response from one the  moderators.

    I am still waiting for my CD and I live in the UK near London.

    This is the message on the UPS website regarding the tracking of the gift.



    11/07/2019 8:00 P.M.     Edgewood, NY, United States     Package transferred to post office
    11/06/2019 10:48 A.M.     EDGEWOOD, NY, United States     Package processed by UPS Mail Innovations origin facility
    11/06/2019 10:04 A.M.     EDGEWOOD, NY, United States     Package received for processing by UPS Mail Innovations
    10/30/2019 10:41 P.M.     United States     Shipment information received by UPS Mail Innovations


    I phoned the helpline and they told me that package can take 6-8 weeks to arrive from the date it was transferred to post office, is this correct?

    It's been over 6 weeks now from that date and I've still recieved nothing.

    At what point does it mean that this CD will never arrive and has been lost in the post? How long do I need to wait before I notify them of this?



    Since I am the mod in the US, I will give you an answer. The US postal service is extremely clogged right now because of the holidays. I have found that the tracking on everything I have had mailed has not been exactly accurate. On top of that, once it gets to the UK, it has to make it through the Royal Mail system. Having said that, as the helpline person said, I would say to give it the 8 weeks, maybe even 10. If you have not received it by the 2nd week of January, give them another call. And please, regardless, let us know when you do receive it. 

  9. What a great tour it's been! Thanks to each and every one of you who have joined us for the live threads. You are what help make them what they are. Thanks to my co-mods, @Max Tsukino and @bigwave; I think we make a great team and have thoroughly enjoyed covering the tour with you. Who's to say where the wind will take us; but let us all be thankful for the musical journey we've had so far.

    U2start and anyone else would still need a wireless network connection to do that, and it is highly unlikely they would have access to the band's undoubtedly password-protected wireless network routers.

    That's what I'm trying to tell you....U2Start is not there. They are pulling the videos from U2's FB and Instagram stories.  If you go look at those, it is the exact same videos. Whoever is running the U2start Twitter account tonight, is sitting at their computers, just like us.  We have not gotten any actual social media posts other than the official U2 ones from the stadium since before the show.
