  1. Finally received mine today, 28 days after ship date and I'm in the U.S. So yeah, it can definitely take some time these days. All is well that ends well :).
  2. If this does get a commercial release, presumably on BluRay, it won't say "U2COM15" on it. I guess it's my obsessive-compulsive nature, but this alone makes it different enough for me. As long as they continue to provide a subscriber gift I will continue to subscribe and not worry about what it is. I love all of them, including the vinyl that sits on my shelf never played. I have U2COM1 through U2COM14, so no stopping now :).
  3. It will come out eventually. At the end of the day, no matter how many times you e-mail customer service for an update or post comments about how horrible it is to have to wait, it is not going to make it come out any quicker. The best thing to do is just check for an update once in a while and rest assured that you will receive it. It might be next week, next month or in December, but it will come and it will be amazing.
  4. I'm quite happy with my original vinyl NLOTH from 10 years ago, but being obsessive-compulsive with stuff like this I will need to have a 2019 version. I'm wondering if the clear vinyl will be available in record stores or only the black vinyl. The gold JT vinyl never came to my local record store, which is a very good store. I would rather not order from the U2 shop, but if that is the only place to get the clear vinyl then I guess that is what I would do. I finally ordered the gold JT vinyl from the U2 shop and of course it showed up with a significantly dinged corner and a slight tear to the top edge from the vinyl pushing through when it was tossed around during shipping. I know I could return it and wait for another one, but it would probably arrive in similar condition.
  5. Plenty still available at my local record store. I could pick one up for you and ship it if you want to pay cost plus actual shipping. The vinyl itself is $16, but postage to Belgium would be $24 per the US postal service website. Total of $40 is kind of a lot for this item, but if it's worth it to you let me know and we can arrange it.
  6. Really hoping for a scope during Acrobat for this last time.
  7. Mixlr on phone, Periscope surfing on iPad and this forum on laptop. And I'm sure I'm not the only one.
  8. u2gigs is back on as well. The two sound a bit different, so will need to see which one sounds better.
  9. On mine the shipping email shows my old address but the order page in the shop shows the correct address. I e-mailed them and will try calling tomorrow. I also updated my address months ago. I'm sure they will make it right one way or another.
  10. No doubt! I get a little sad at the end of every show, so the last one is going to be really tough!!! So glad that we are able to listen to and sometimes even watch all of these shows!
  11. Nice dose of Achtung Baby with UTEOTW, EBTTRT and Acrobat! Maybe if we wish hard enough and keep talking about it there will really be a AB 30th anniversary tour!!!
  12. Would love to see them come back and play the Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience albums, in their entireties. Nothing else. I know it will never happen, and lots of heads in the crowd would explode, but I think that would be awesome. That would be the real i&e/e&i tour!
  13. The ending is deliberate and makes sense with the overall theme and arc of the show. People always clamor for them to start playing 40 to close shows, but not a lot of "giddy up" in that one either. And no, 45 was not "voted by the American people." Don't forget he lost "the people" by 3 million.
  14. Still plenty of tickets left, but I wouldn't call it "empty." Highly unlikely that they would cancel at this point. It looks like there are about 1,600 tickets left, not including floor GA which must be mostly sold since there have been periods when only resale were available for floor. Capacity is reported to be 17,560, so this makes the show over 90% sold. Hardly a disaster. I'm just hoping for a good, lively crowd. I don't think some empty seats will discourage the band from putting on the best show they can.
