  1. I don't mind the $40. It's not a lot. It's just frustrating that after so many years these gift issues are never resolved. Also hopefully from now on the quality of the gifts are better moving forward. At the end of he day I just think U2.com could offer more. U2 has such a huge catalog of live performances, it would be great they could offer it as downloads more often. It’s sitting there, why not share it with the faithful. Just a small thing like that would add so much value. My 0.2 cents.
  2. U2.com is very bad, let's be honest. If it was not for the tour presales and occasional good quality gifts, most people would ignore it. On top of that, the way they are managing it and the constant shipping delays just add insult to injury. I am sure the band is not aware but it would be nice to see some of the professionalism being applied to the site. Come on, it's been several years with this constant issues. Get your act straight.
  3. Please offer a download of the stream. If not 4K, at least 1080p. Thanks
  4. February is almost over, I wonder if U2.com will indeed keep their promise and mail it in February. πŸ˜€ It's amazing after all these years they can't get this right. If this site was as professional as U2, it would be a huge delight to fans. They should offer way more than they actually do.
  5. That will be great if it is true. I wish U2 released on Blu-Ray the U2 3D movie that as on IMAX few years back. It's shame we cannot find it anywhere. Luckily, I had the chance to watch it but only once. It was pretty cool.
  6. Not sure about releasing it on movie theaters. If I remember correctly, U2 was not super fond of Rattle & Hum released on theaters back then. I would not mind but I am not sure they will go that way. I hope the Blu-ray comes at the end of the year.
  7. It's crazy that after so many years, the subscription gift always has an issue to it. You would think the people who manage the site and club would have it figured out by now. From shipping delays to lame vinyl gifts, to no deliveries at all, this keeps happening every single year, I would expect the gifts would get better as the time goes by, especially in the years a tour is not on the works. A DVD release in 2020 is a joke. I get many people who don't have Blu-Ray, so release multiple options or at least give a video hi-definition download of the show alongside the DVD. They do that for the vinyl gifts with an mp3 download. Most people belong to u2.com due to the ticket pre-sales. The content the site provides is very weak and does not justify the annual membership. The gift has always been a nice perk that helps members deal with the cost. I am sure the band doesn't follow what happens here, but you would think they should put the same level of professionalism they have always been about to u2.com. Come on, get this right.
  8. I doubt this is a fan club exclusive. U2 makes way more money selling to the general public. So I expect a release later like it has always been. What is not clear here is if this subs gift will be the same as the future gp release. I would think so, that's why I hope the subs gift will have the same hi-def format so we don't have to pay for it twice. DVD in 2020 is just unacceptable.
  9. That was my point earlier. If we get this and at later date the same exact product is release in hi-definition to the general public, that will be a slap on the face to all of us that pay for the subscription. I hope U2 won't be that greedy.
  10. At this point we can only hope it's a mistake and it comes with Blu-ray BUT I doubt. Usually they are pretty good on the description. I don'r remember they ever making suck mistake.
  11. Interestingly, I first did not realize it was a DVD. On the back of my mind, I was thinking Blu-ray. Well, that isn't very reassuring. We are in 2020 and DVD is outdated by more than a decade. No wonder the DVD did not register on my mind. 🀣 I think this is another ploy for U2 grab money from fans when the Blu-ray package hits the general public sales and maximizes profits giving this subscription gift. I love U2, but I do sometimes think they are too greedy. This is another example of that.
  12. I just received this morning the package. Alleluia. Disappointed by the quality of the booklet. Was expecting something more high-end, especially after such a long wait. Oh well, maybe next time. The CD is great, though.
  13. Email received yesterday. Hopefully by week's end this wait is over. About damn time!
  14. This is one of the best gifts for subscribers in a long time. I am glad we are not getting the vinyl releases anymore. That said, U2 could be better providing members downloads more often. It's not a huge deal to provide more live shows from the '80s to the latest tours. I am sure the catalog they have on vaults is enormous. Just get it out and give the hardcore fans something to cheer about. While I am looking forward to seeing the entire print package, I think through the membership year U2 could very well gift away these concerts consistently.
  15. yep, like I said this is one of the best gifts they are offering. The vinyls are useless to me and they always seem a cheap way out of giving something substantial. I like the idea of giving full concerts downloads. They have all that audio sitting in some vault. Share with fans and create cool packages that later they can sell at a price that can make a profit. I love U2 but feel the membership should be able to offer way more than they do.
