  1. OMG you'll never guess what arrived today in my corner of North Yorkshire? Only my 2017 gift ??????? just a pity its taken so long and I've not renewed my subscription. Let's just hope for you remaining subscribers that 2018 gift is worth the wait, whatever it maybe?
  2. I have decided not to renew my subscription, still haven't received last years gift, I think the fans are being treated badly and no one seems to be bothered. Have got tickets for this year's tour but it will be my last U2 concert, I've had enough of paying inflated ticket prices and how we've been treated over this whole gift debacle. Having been a fan from the start its sad to see what a shambles the U2 brand has become, whatever happened to putting the fans first? Let's face it they would be nothing without us??
  3. Surely an acceptable gift for 2018 would be to actually receive the gift from 2017 with a full refund of our subscription fee and some form of compensation. In most consumer cases if you don't get what was promised you're entitled to a refund and in some cases compensation. Surely that is the least we deserve. What with this on going issue, stupid ticket prices, lack of pre sale codes to name but a few issues, it seems the wheels have begun to come off the U2 empire. Instead of Bono trying to make poverty history why not give the fans who've got you to where you are a bit of respect and treat
  4. I can't believe this is still on going, I've still not received mine and certainly won't be paying anymore money to this badly run business. It's alright people saying its not the band's fault but its there name at the top of the page. Surely this whole fiasco could and should have been sorted a long,long,long time ago. They are certainly quick enough in reminding us our subscription needed renewing and taking the money. It's about time someone took ownership of the problem and sorted it out. For those of you who have already resubscribed lets hope whatever the gift is that you receive it bef
  5. Wish I could hear the sound quality but I'm still bloody waiting for last year's gift to arrive? this whole episode is a disgrace, and I won't be renewing my subscription. U2 obviously don't need lifelong fans anymore. Just hope new subscribers get treated better but I wouldn't hold out much hope, its all about the money now. Pretty sure plenty more disgruntled fans out there just a pity my association with U2 will have to end this way.
  6. Still no gift from 2017 will it ever arrive????????? I can download them !!!!! But that is not what was offered as a gift, when will this ever be sorted??? Total farce come on someone get it sorted??
  7. As well as fleecing their own fans how can expect ordinary working people to be able to afford such prices? Maybe if we all had several houses around the world and a team at our beck and call money wouldn't be a problem
  8. So it looks like the gift could be being sent out in February. I'm sorry but this is still not good enough. This whole episode is shocking and surely we deserve an official apology and some form of compensation. With all the issues going on at the moment, gift not being received, no pre sale codes, crazy ticket prices, small number of shows and from reading some of the comments on the forums there are a lot of unhappy people out there. So come on someone at least have the decency to give us some answers or is that too much to ask for???? or are you not worried about the fans anymore?????? Sur
  9. No I'm in UK wrote e-mail no response. Suggest we don't renew our subscriptions.
  10. Why have we had no apology from anyone about this shambles of pre sale codes, subscription gift for 2017 limited tour dates, ridiculous ticket prices, Experience fans not receiving pre sale codes, no shows in certain Countries i.e. Scotland again. Who thinks its acceptable to treat fans this way? I expected better from U2 as they always seemed to stay away from Sponsored Tours but it seems fans have become secondary to profit. from some of the comments on this site quite a few seasoned members will not be renewing their subscriptions anymore. Anyone from U2 listening?????
  11. That reply sort of sums up this whole sham over tickets, pre sale codes and subscription gift. Who is running this debacle?
  12. So much for looking after the fans, shambles over membership gift, no pre sale codes for experience members, limited concert dates(none in Scotland) ridiculous ticket prices for decent seats, it looks like the band have finally sold out to corporate greed. Like many of you I think its finally time to say goodbye U2 enjoy your wealth after all its the fans you've forgotten that have always put hands in their pockets to follow you,and buy albums and merchandise but have finally had enough.
  13. Totally agree I won't be renewing my membership, looks like U2 have decided to forget the fans for corporate greed. Ticket prices are a disgrace who can afford the prices for decent seats? By the time accommodation and travel are included its a joke. Maybe if I had several houses around the world and a team of people looking after me I could afford to go to one of my own concerts?
  14. It a disgrace there are no Scottish dates, I've got tickets for the O2 but wasn't willing to pay the £190+ for decent seats so am probably sitting in the rafters. This will be my last U2 concert and I won't be renewing my membership, The band should hang there heads in shame for treating the fans this way after all its fans that put them were they are.
  15. I sent a message to the shop asking if there was anything they would do to make up for the membership item mishap and of course nobody has answered me :rolleyes:

      I sent one a week or so ago said they would get back to me within 24 hours, still had no reply. I've decided not to renew my membership, real fans being let down once again for corporate greed. This puts U2 in a new light to me now, whatever happened to fan loyalty? They just seem to be in it now to make even more money at there fans expense.

      I still haven't got any sort of response back to the message I sent in, not even a response saying my message was received. I am beginning to regret having already renewed.
