  1. The tracking no. is useless when the package leaves US... it doesn't convert to EU postal comapanies... mine is stuck at 17th August... most of my firends around who got their confirmations later already got their packages so mine is probably lost... as i asked at postal office and duty office
  2. With April upon us how are we doing Apollo?! i must be careful with my boss or wife when I say to him I will be early realistically before the virtual tour is done we will not any heads up on the gift details 😕
  3. Regarding the exclusive Stuff ... I’m dying for another “cool” person playlist... NOT (no offense to anyone) but this is very lame effort for the paid subscribers ... like mentioned in first post at least one live track per month would be nice (see Metallica, see Pearl Jam...) gift wise last few were really nice, but we all know that proper ZooTV release would be a mother of all gifts! 30th birthday right around the corner so maybe?
  4. Does March still counts as early 2021? ... seems like Apollo setlist had more than 100+ songs and they are individually curating the songs... oh wait they had it already mastered for SirusFM... why oh why it always takes so long to announce such simple things... don't you thing one track download would be about right by now?! given there is close to zero exclusive content online ...
  5. Thanks to MODs for helping fans, but it is still ridiculous that years go by and U2.com store still has the same old issues... My "Edge" Sian shirt never reached, I was refunded with item value, I had to fight to have the shipping cost refunded... after about 6 months I finally got my money back... had few other issues like that with other orders.... usually with happy-refunds- ending (but damn I wated that Sian shirt so bad and ordered minutes after it got online), but that is not the way e-commerce should work. Now i avoid buying anything in U2.com store, because of this. Sad to see that it still works so bad when so many other e-stores work so well and handle customers way better. Still huge love to the MODs for trying to cover u2shop poor service!
  6. I have to say DVD in 2020 Of a show filmed in 4K is a real slap in a face... the same happened with last Coldplay video release - only dvd you guys may not realize it but 142minutes with possible LPCM, DD5.1 and DTS 5.1 will mean a lot of compression and quality of video will really be poor! Just check out Chicago DVD there are so many artifacts for the very same reason... I believe it (2005) was shot in HD and begs for HD release and now 2018 show in SD ... what a way to show to your fans we do not really care just give them something and grab the 40usd sad
  7. Good luck! I'm tired of havin to ask and getting replies which lead nowhere... since they alread collected my money
  8. The whole SHOP is one big GLITCH I ordered 3 items in november, they've split it in 2 packages, gave me 2 tracking number which never worked, early January said they resend 1 package again no proper tracking no.... it's been almost 4 months and no signs of package in my doorway... this thing operates like in 19th century.... every Ebay seller has better managment of shipping etc. Can finally someone from U2managment get hands on this pile of shit!
  9. Looking for 1 GA ticket for 1st show for a friend!
  10. Friend is selling 1GA ticket for stehplatz inneraum, ticket is located in Poznan (Poland), might be delivered to Berlin on showday. PM for details
  11. Not yet... called and they will arrive soon that's what i was told
  12. A friend is looking for 2 tickets for Sunday show in London, might be seats, FACE VALUE only. Thanks to all who replied this one has already been sorted!
  13. Anyone still think DUALS CD was lame?! Can't believe the news today...
  14. Dear U2, Principle Management, Live Nation, U2.Com, I send you this message today on behalf of the paid subscribers of U2.com. Recently, many of us have become dissatisfied with the way that the website is run. When U2 partnered with Live Nation in 2008, Bono said "With regards to U2.com, we feel we've got a great website, but we want to make it a lot better. We want a closer, more direct relationship between the band and its audience and Live Nation has pledged to help us with that." However, since the commencement of that partnership many fans have begun to feel ostracized from the band. Not only has the cost of subscription increased, but many paid members now feel as if they are not getting value for the money that they are spending. Some features of U2.com are universally admired by the fans. The amount of content in the free site’s Discography and Lyrics sections are second-to-none when compared with official websites for many other artists, and the ongoing Willie’s Diary is enjoyed by every paid member. But this is not enough to warrant the high cost of a subscription, even with the pre-sale access codes taken into account_74615. Fans have many concerns over the way that U2.com is being run, and the feeling of connection with the band that we all love and admire has changed from one of closeness and intimacy to one where we are simply being used for our money. Primary among our concerns is the customer service of the website and the U2.com shop. Though we understand that it is near impossible to make every single customer happy, too many people are having negative experiences. One of the problems is that the coupon discount is unable to be applied to new items in the U2.com shop, such as the Artificial Horizon vinyl and the Rose Bowl DVD and Blu-Ray releases. Perhaps the best – and certainly the most universal – example of problems with customer service is the fiasco surrounding Artificial Horizon. Many people were upset that a release which was supposed to be exclusive to paying subscribers was made available for commercial release on vinyl through the U2.com shop. When the orders for the vinyl release closed further problems ensued. The demand for the product far exceeded expectations, and so orders were backlogged for weeks; sometimes for months. When the product finally did arrive, customers found that the vinyl discs were warped and unplayable. It was an unpleasant experience for all who were involved. Unfortunately it is not the only example where customer service has been lacking. Orders from the U2.com shop have not been shipped out for weeks, or even cancelled altogether. When people call to see what has happened with their orders the responses that are given are both generic and uninformative. New members are unable to access the areas they paid to see, and sometimes the accounts are even reset. The number of complaints in Zootopia is proof enough of this. Further complaints have come from the manner in which the dates for upcoming concerts on the tour have been released. While we understand that it is an attempt to thwart scalpers, the result is that many fans are not informed of the presale in time to use their codes for the dates that they wish to see. It also leads to fans not using their codes in case a concert closer to home is announced at a later date; the prime example of this is Britain and Ireland last year, where many residents did not buy tickets for concerts in Spain, France, or Germany as they were certain that dates in the UK and Ireland would be announced. They were not, and many fans were left disappointed with unused presale access codes, something which could have been avoided entirely if they had been made aware that if they wished to see U2 play it would have to be on the continent. Another example is the closing concert on the forthcoming leg in North America. No less than four cities have held the title of being the last night of the leg, which has always been considered to be a special occasion by band and fan alike. As a result, many fans have bought tickets to concerts that are labeled as the last of the leg (sometimes on multiple occasions), only to find that it changes later. While it may help to stop some scalpers, the practice of announcing dates intermittently simply doesn’t work; not when it is at the expense of the fans who helped U2 to become what it is today. Another major concern is the content of the free gift each year, which for many people is an encouragement to join U2.com. In years where no tour is being held, it is often the reason why subscriptions are renewed. Prior to the partnership with Live Nation, the gifts were well received. U2.COMmunication was a unique memento of the Vertigo Tour, which allowed fans to have some tracks from both concert films on the tour, as well as video that was unavailable in any other way. Zoo2 and U2 Go Home allowed fans to have a legitimate CD copy of what are generally thought to be two of U2’s best video releases; the latter, considered the best free gift to date, also gave fans a free T-shirt, with a choice from several designs. And of course, further back in time there were the Hasta la Vista, Baby and Melon CDs. But since the joining with Live Nation, the quality of these gifts has been reduced drastically. The primary problem is that, by joining U2.com, paying members are promised exclusive content; this includes Willie’s Diary, some video, and interviews. Many fans associate the exclusive content with the material on the free gift as well; and since the partnership with Live Nation, this has not happened. No track on Medium, Rare & Remastered was unreleased; fans already had them from The Complete U2, the remastered albums, and various singles. Only three tracks on Artificial Horizon (four if you include the “Unknown Caller†download after purchasing the vinyl) had not been heard before, and one track, “Fast Carsâ€, had been included on the previous free gift. They were not universally enjoyed but they were tolerated as interesting collections, even if most of the content was already owned by the people receiving them. U2 Duals has crossed the line of tolerance. With the previous releases, the consolation was that the material was at least somewhat exclusive by virtue of having been released as B-sides. Four of the songs on U2 Duals (“The Wandererâ€, “When Love Comes to Townâ€, “Miss Sarajevoâ€, and “The Saints Are Comingâ€) were released – sometimes multiple times – on widely available studio albums and compilations. Most of the others are available on iTunes for a dollar. As a result the fan outcry and outrage over this year’s gift has been considerable, spawning numerous lengthy discussions on Zootopia and various U2 fansites. Many longtime fans have reached the point where they no longer wish to renew their subscription to U2.com, and many are prepared to boycott the website entirely. The article on U2 Duals states that the release was curated by the band; but we have a hard time believing that they could sanction a release which has left so many people disillusioned. We are tired of feeling like we are being used for our money and getting nothing of value in return; the exclusive content being offered simply isn’t enough for what we have to pay to get it. The REM subscription costs $12 a year and members receive several exclusive tracks. The Coldplay.com subscription is free, and the newsletters they send out often contain contests where members can win items used by the band, and they frequently give away unreleased songs and remixes. Pearl Jam’s fanclub, described by many U2 fans as one of the best that there is, gives streaming radio access, a magazine in PDF and hardcopy formats, free tracks for both download and vinyl, limited edition t-shirts, and a coupon that allows a user to download a free ‘bootleg’ Pearl Jam concert of their choice, in addition to all of the other perks that U2.com offers (full website access, some exclusive video and interviews, and pre-sale codes), for $40. $50 is a lot of money for many people. They pay it year after year because they love the band and they hope to get the exclusive content that they are promised. The content that is currently offered is the bare minimum, and it is not enough to entice people to continue to renew their subscription. There is a lot that could be done to improve the U2.com experience and justify the expensive $50 price of membership. · Prompt responses from customer service regarding delayed or cancelled orders; · Allow the U2.com shop coupon to be used on newly available products; · Return to announcing all of the concert dates on a leg at once. It may not thwart the scalpers but neither does the current practice, and keeping the fans happy is more important; · Occasional posts or interviews by the band with members, as they used to do on the old Popmart website on MSN; or an option where users can submit questions that will then be answered by the band members; · Competitions for signed albums or singles – perhaps even exclusive packages to concerts that include airfare, hotel rooms, and backstage passes; · Full-length videos instead of the abbreviated clips that are currently shown on the website; · A free gift that is comprised only of material that is actually exclusive: songs that have never before been released, and never will be released in the future, whether they be live, remixes, demos, or discarded album tracks; · More exclusive downloads; the holiday MP3 of “Amazing Grace†/ “Where the Streets Have No Name†was a joy, and other downloads would be most welcome; · Allow fans to download a ‘bootleg’ concert of their choice. We know that U2 record every single thing that they do, whether it be a concert, a soundcheck, or even a jam in Bono’s basement. They’ve said for years that they would like to make that content available to fans, and it was one thing that was heavily teased during the initial link-up with iTunes. Pearl Jam has proven that it can be done, so surely U2 can do the same. We know how much Bono, The Edge, Adam, and Larry care about their fans; Larry taking the time to personally sort out the ticket debacle at the beginning of the Vertigo Tour is proof of that. U2 became a success largely because of their live set, in which each member strived on a nightly basis to connect with the audience. It worked. The relationship between band and fan was one of the closest and most intimate connections that could be imagined. In recent years this connection has faded, and many people who have been fans for years, even decades, now feel ostracized and closed off from the band that they have followed and loved for so long. The people who are being hurt are not the casual fan; they are the ones who have supported U2 from the beginning, and who have been members of the fanclub since the days of Propaganda. In the end, as U2.com is their website, the responsibility for the faults lies with the members of the band, and if any changes are to be made the onus is on them to do so. We cannot believe that they will allow the treatment of their fans to continue in such a manner. Bono once thanked us all for supporting the band through the early years, and for “giving us £500 each dayâ€. We will all be more than happy to continue doing so; we’d just like to get some value from that money, so that we can say we continue to have a special and intimate relationship with U2. Sincerely, ZBYCH
  15. I've PM both of You, should there still be a problem, check the official site of the FLAG-MOB, www.u2flaga.pl there ismy mail at the bottom of the page: u2flaga (at) o2.pl
  16. after Dublin#3 there are no doubts they will play NYD in Poland so get your self ready for the most spectacular show of the 360 tour! WHITE and REDagain!
  17. U2 FLAG-MOB - 360° - POLAND ON THE HOR I ZON On the 6th of August U2 will again play in Poland. Just like the last time Polish fans prepare a huge FLAG-MOB aiming to turn the Stadium in to a giganticWhite and Red flag. WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO? If you have GRANDSTAND/SEATS tickets, you take something WHITE (towel, t-shirt,paper, white glowing mobile etc.). If you have PITCH/GRASS tickets you should take something RED. When the band starts to play "New Year's Day" - the song inspired by Solidarity Movement and Lech Walesa - everyone starts towave with shirts, papers, towel and thus massive FLAG will be created. WHAT IF U2 DOESN'T PLAY NEW YEAR's DAY? Even though, so far NYD haven't been played on 360 tour, we can be sure that in Poland, it will be. The Edge promised that in a conversation withPolish fan during tour rehersals. In Dublin on the 27th of July New Year's Day has been soundchecked and later played at the show, so THERE ARE NO DOUBTs about U2 playing it in Poland!Hurrah! WATCH THE 2005 FLAG: Take your time and have a look at the short documentary showing the 2005 Flag-Mob. There were tears of joy, dropped jaws and speechless mouths all over thestadium: WATCH READ THE STORY OF THE FLAG Wirten by the "Godfahter" of the whole FLAG-MOB concept READ HELP US SPREAD THE NEWS Download the PDF file and spreadthe news around, if you know someone who's going to Chorzow-show - inform him, show the Flag Story and the special video. REGARDLESS OF YOUR NATIONAL COLOURS - JOIN US! LET's MAKE THE SLASKI STADIUM WHITE & RED AGAIN! YOU WILL NEVER FORGET THAT EXPERIENCE… just like BONO who descirbed 2005 FlagMob as the Highlight of the tour (U2byU2) and One Of The Great Days Of His Life, we are repeatig ourselfs but in a 360 style POLAND IS ON THE HOR I ZON! ….
