    I listened to the whole show, for the first time, the other day.  I had only listened to a couple downloads.  I like to wait for the actual gift to have my first listen.  (just me)   I love this gift.  It's one of my all time favorites.  My gosh that rhythm in When Love Comes To Town is sick.  wow.  I love the whole show. Desire on it goes to a whole other level for me.  It has a small venue, intimate sound to it which I was not expecting.  They sound so very good.  Great, Great gift.  

    I do that too🌞 - wait to get the full show to play it as a complete set.  Totally agree with you it's amazing 👍

    So the European Union has just tightened up their handling of parcels and companies can’t send gift to private persons. As of July the 1. Any parcel is taxable whereas before only items over a given limit was - this is the new reality. This could have been fixed by either paying the tax up front or by shipping all European parcels to let’s say Ireland and ship each parcel from within the European Union. Mine got nicked by coustoms - most Danish items does - and this gift will cost Danes 28 dollars to get. The tax that universal music should have prepaid is around 8 dollars and this could have been applied to the membership. Talking to government doesn’t work here - the only thing working is adapting to the law in a smart manner 🙂

    I live in the UK and didn't get charged any fees which was a nice change.  As EVERYTHING else I buy  is hammered with VAT and/or customs duty.  So it was a small but nice change - if I had to I would pay the fee though to get my hands on the latest resub package - as it's fab😍

    Well, there are plenty of people, both here and in general, who still enjoy CDs and DVDs. Your personally finding them “insignificant” doesn’t make such a belief an objective fact. (Also, I don’t quite understand why you are using your love of vinyl to impugn DVDs, since vinyl doesn’t have a visual component.)

    However, I have often wondered why audio gifts aren’t offered in multiple physical formats. If a choice were offered in advance (for example, at the time of one’s membership renewal) for what format one prefers if a gift in any given year is an audio one, more subscribers’ wishes could be satisfied. You also wouldn’t get mass mailings of CDs to those who would prefer vinyl, or of vinyl to those who prefer CDs (the latter especially being a large (and avoidable) waste of resources, both in cost of materials and in postage - it’s much more expensive to mail vinyl than CDs, and doubly a waste for those who have no interest in vinyl).

    On the whole, the site has been good in alternating formats from year to year. I still hope for a day that one’s preferences for formats will be satisfied in a more targeted way...maybe someday... 🤷‍♂️ 

     

     

    We've had CDs, vinyl, books and prints. I think we need a VHS and compact cassette just to complete our collections🙃😉

  5. Thanks for the reply Mich, yes Vertigo, will try the form again.

    Update-- tried again but get message saying not answering email or phone, here's a screen grab

    Update --- got an email saying my form was received and then another today saying that a replacement has shipped. So the form works, even though it says it doesn't 🤔 Thank you for your help 👍

    One more flag for the Blu-ray! It makes absolutely no sense to make this available in DVD when we subscribers are actually interested in content. The only reason I can think of for somebody to be happy with whatever the format/quality as long as it is and exclusive release is to make a profit by reselling it, which certainly is not the spirit of membership.

    The video (and audio!) quality of a DVD release is definitely inferior to the one in Blu-ray or even streaming, and anyone who's been watching audiovisual media in the past 10 years can definitely notice that. As a subscriber, I'm here because of the exceptional content (and pre-sales ;) ), so its quality is extremely important.

     

    Don't think you can generalise like that.  I'm happy with whatever the format is because I am not overly fussed about slightly better quality (it's a personal thing); but I won't be selling my copy (I will be keeping it and playing it). 

    Perhaps DVD was selected as a media because it is readily playable format across different devices old n new?  As not everyone has access to the latest hardware that could play Bluray?  So it's fairer for everyone.

    I too hope/ agree that a different version is not made available commercially like 'From the Sky Down' (box set v's commercial release of movie) or the available nowhere else U2 map being given away free during RSD.

    Whats going on with the shipping? The reason I ask U2 shop said item shipped 2 weeks ago, UPS contacted and cant provide tracking and U2 shop message says it could take 6 to 8 weeks to reach the UK - is Bono delivering it by foot to me?!  Joking apart please could you advise what is happening?  Thanks

     

    Ps if the CD is made in EU why is it being shipped to the USA to be sent back to the EU - not very good ref carbon footprint😯

    Yippee its arrived, thank you, love it

    Just to check; has everyone received their confirmation email that their gifts have been shipped or not yet? I have not and am starting to get worried...

    Hi there, I haven't received any email yet about my resub CD being shipped either:rolleyes:

  10. Thank you very, very much for all your support for the annual U2 T-Shirt event. It couldn’t happen without all your: retweets, likes, pictures, comments, follows and everything else you did to support it – hope you had fun, you are all stars. Hope to see you next time #U2T0925
