  1. I think the band needs to step it up a bit, as I feel DVD-over-Blu-ray for Berlin, several single-only vinyl releases, and the upcoming Apollo CD are all a bit in the weak department. I mention Apollo because I am pretty sure the whole thing was filmed and would've loved for this year's gift to be a box set. In the the past, U22, Songs of i+e, the 360 book have all bee great! But time for something that might take a bit more money to produce. I am sure fans would appreciate it. The Dead and Phish have been doing these for years. Some ideas... Rattle & Hum complete outtakes to coincid
  2. I called and called and they finally fixed it. Rebecca is the person to talk to.
  3. U2.COM PUT ME IN THE WRONG PRIORITY GROUP! In March of this year, I renewed my U2.com subscription, as I always do, without letting it lapse. In fact, I've been a paying fan club member since the Propaganda days in 1994. For whatever reason, this time I payed the normal $40 renewal fee on the same day U2.com told me to renew. It could have been the next day in a European time zone... this I do not remember. Still, it recognized that I would be paying the renewal price, not the full price. Then, when ticket presale codes for The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 started to roll out, I was pu
  4. And that's what some of the band/management is hoping for - that fans will be "buying the DVD anyway." It's just another in a long line of bad post-production decisions on all of U2's concert films. What a joke.
  5. Sorry to go back to this, but there is a science to the Breathe opener - and the band obviously liked it or else they wouldn't have done it at EVERY show (minus Foxboro 2, of course). The Space Oddity intro builds up the momentum and the frenzy in the crowd. The Kingdom of Your Love gets the ears perked up with that familiar voice singing in an ethereal tone. And then Larry... stepping out alone under the spotlights. Wham! - the rest of U2 arrives and the crowd goes nuts... Breathe! There's a science to all of that and it's inexcusable to try and change history and make believe the Rose Bo
  6. 100% agree. There is a science to that opening - and the band obviously liked it or else they wouldn't have done it at EVERY show (minus Foxboro 2, of course).

  7. Without jumping to conclusions, Bono flubbed some of the opening lyrics on Breathe, so they might not want to include it based on quality standards. However, it could also be a timing issue - the Space Oddity/Kingdom of your Love intro is lengthy. Either way - it's a poor decision. Obviously, this wouldn't need to be done for a Blu-Ray disc, but many bands have split up their long (and complete) concerts over two DVDs within a box set. U2 could certainly afford to do the same.
  8. Just wanted to start a thread to stress the importance of putting "Breathe" back to its rightful place in the Rose Bowl DVD (and not relegated to a "bonus track"). I'm not sure how the opening "Space Oddity"/"Kingdom of Your Love"/Larry entrance segment will be edited to flow into a fake "Boots" opener. And I'm not sure I ever want to see how.

  10. Someone created a new Facebook Group for all who'd like to complain about "Breathe" not being included in the regular order of the tracklisting (myself included!). Join today... http://www.facebook.com/g...f=mf&gid=109691329056098
