  1. Some of these shows were recorded in 4x3 format. HD is 16x9, so if they release it as 1080p, it will have black borders on the sides. It's alright and I am hopeful the upscale quality will be top notch.
  2. Good job U2, I just hope it stays on YT for a while. Not sure I will be able to watch all shows on the time slot they will give. Speaking of live shows, what is the deal in regards TJT tour? It's been quite a long time, don't understand what's holding releasing it to the public. Cheers
  3. What happened to the JTT video? I am surprised if hasn't been released yet. Maybe that should be the special gift. I am hoping U2 will release a 4k of the EI (outside of the Berlin one) and JT tours for the general public to purchase it.
  4. Sure, I get it but I doubt the final product would be crap. U2 always strive for the best people working on their gigs. What they often do is not releasing the material. I still don't understand why there isn't a TJT tour video released after this long. What are they waiting for? This pandemic times would be perfect since people are stuck at their homes.
  5. Well, seeing fan clips on YT of the show, they for sure had pro-gear filming it. I also don't think they were 360 cameras. I am hoping a video can come along. That would be awesome if they have that material sitting somewhere. Release to the fans even if the quality is not top notch.
  6. Hoping the video can later be part of the gift package as streaming bonus here on u2.com.
  7. Are they releasing only the songs or also the video of the Apollo event? I hope they will have both and the video as 4K just like they did with the Berlin show.
  8. Damn.... I purchased the CD. Thanks for the reply.
  9. Can you get a digital download of all tracks if you purchased the CD/Vinyl deluxe set?
  10. I am hoping this is the remastered hi-definition version. Please make it available on-demand after the livestream.
  11. Damn, You missed it then. It's a great song. That MDH album has 3 gems. Stateless, TGBHF, Never Let Me Go and Falling at your feet is a nice one too.
  12. This is a nice move by U2. I hope they revamp the whole video catalog for HD. Better yet 4K. most were filmed in 35mm, do the upconversion is possible. That’s the beauty of film. Again, congratulations for the nice move.
  13. As expected great design and packaging. Too bad not much new content. Give the fans real value.
  14. This is true, but again they could make this box interesting with a ATYCLB downloadable new concert from their site. No need to create the physical blu-ray that I agree the ones I have I already ripped into my computer. We all know U2 have all this content sitting on vaults but they are lazy to edit and release it. It's that extra effort that counts especially when they charge a pretty penny for it.
  15. But U2 feeds that machine. I get that the band is probably not involved on those decisions, but is it possible they have absolutely no clue at all? Couldn't they see this is an ongoing thing? Look at the lack of excitement content on U2.com. Finally this year they gave us the full E+I show but for a long time it was pretty weak membership gifts and absolutely nothing beyond that during the year.
  16. The only cool thing about those boxsets are the packaging, books and design (the presentation). The songs and videos usually are already out there and most hardcore U2 fans that are the main target of this products, own it. Again, a money grab. Give us real value with content from those secret vaults.
  17. Yeah, U2 does this often, repackaged old material to make money. I wish they put the effort to release tons of new material like live tracks, videos etc. All that stuff sitting on a dark warehouse collecting dust and cobwebs. I'll buy the super cd package because I'm a sucker for the design and presentation (I'm graphic designer) but wished it had more to it. My gut tells me the band is not very aware of the fan desires and this is the record industry attempt to extort more $ from the fan base. BTW, the acoustic version of "Stuck In A Moment" was offered as a single many years back on iTunes. Right around the time of "the complete U2" were released exclusively by Apple. So it's not new.
  18. I noticed U2.com is cheaper to buy this merchandise than Amazon and other retailers. I wonder why since in the past they were basically the same.
  19. U2 for some weird reason hold on all these rare recording or live tracks that are hard to get a hold to. They have everything in a vault, sitting somewhere in the dust. Why not release it to everyone and on top of making a boatload of $$$ in the process. This boxset like others in the past would be a great opportunity to do so. Another possibility is offering club members free downloads of live tour content on a quarterly basis. Why not? We are loyal and keep supporting the band all these years. Share it!
  20. The show I would really love to see again is U2 3D. Yes, I know it needs a special projection to see the 3D effects but you can release as standard 2D viewing using tech to "down convert" it. I loved watching it on IMAX, but never had a chance ever to see it again. That would be an awesome gift.
  21. I get it. Thanks for passing along these ideas. Lets hope it comes to fruition.
  22. Well, I hope you are right but honestly I am skeptical. I would think by now releasing unseen/unheard footage/audio would be a no brainer. Still a have a tiny bit of hope the moderators or someone associate with the band can read these forums and take some action.
  23. I actually would love to see U2 release live videos of concerts we have not seem and are store on their vaults. Bringing these already seem/sold videos doesn't do anything for me. U2 has a huge concert library of videos and audio that could be shared among club members. If editing videos takes too long or cost too much, then release the full audio of old tours. How difficult would that be? Talking about adding value to the membership. Now during the pandemic U2.com could very well release once a month one never seem/heard full concert of each tour, That would be awesome. We know they have it. They record every show. Please consider it!
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
