  1. More than understandable there’s going to be delays with this years gift. I would just like it to be acknowledged on the site that it’s going to be delayed. There’s been a poor history from u2.com of failing to meet dates they’ve said and not acknowledging it with an apology or explanation, certainly not at the time anyway. It’s a very easy explanation this time and no apology needed just an acknowledgment on the site.
  2. Absolutely spot on stuff above, I think it’s all realistic and reasonable. Instead of Sydney this week we could have been watching Stockholm 92 just cleaned up with better audio. Instead of seeing bits of songs for the last few tours and thinking I want more we could have been getting full songs and feeling grateful. All the other points too are well put. Think about it what could you buy online or in a music store for $40 or $50? More than one dvd anyway, the ticket pre sale doesn’t cost the site anything either so shouldn’t be factored in to the cost.
  3. I won’t go on any further than this so I don’t derail things but is there really no way that a few more things could be thrown our way. It doesn’t need to be full shows even but maybe every few weeks a full live video of just one song even. I’m not just talking about now while we’re in lockdown I’m talking about with the site in general. Surely someone’s reading this that can at least try and do something about it. Is it really too much to ask to turn a 30 second video of exit from last year into the full one for us? Maybe a dozen videos over a year of full songs live? 1 a month.
  4. I think a fair suggestion to start with would be having full song clips when they perform live instead of the 30 second ones we usually get. I don’t think that’s an unfair ask, they’re filming the song anyway why tease paying members with just a bit of it.
  5. There’s the legal side of things but realistically every u2.com subscriber will rightfully want to have a downloaded version of the stream to have forever and I think given the cost of a subscription it’s not too much to ask when you compare what sky store charge as an example for a new blu Ray and hd digital download combo (£17.99). In fact u2.com should be openly making it downloadable but the reality is someone will find a way to do it and people will end up getting it technically illegally somewhere else which is just stupid on u2.com’s part. That’s the reality of what’s going to happen whether it’s legal or not, it’s up to u2.com whether they want to make it legal or not.
  6. I think asking for a blu Ray release when we’ll be getting a dvd and 4k stream is a bit like asking them to release all there new albums on cassette as well as cd, vinyl and download. Blu Ray is a bit caught in the middle these days. People didn’t take to the format the way they did to DVD’s and now 4k has come along its a bit stuck in the middle of being neither the most popular or the best format.
  7. I think they’ve actually came up with a great solution. The news was a day late which is still poor given they had a 29 day window to make it on time but at least it’s good news.
  8. Here is a link https://www.u2.com/news/title/experience--innocence--live-in-berlin if you scroll down to the end. And here is a screenshot.
  9. Anton Corbijn was working on it they filmed the Mexico shows in 2017 and he confirmed a while back the plan was for it to be shown in cinemas. Probably something similar to what happened with the recent depeche mode film that was also given a short run in cinemas. I guess we’ll find out in the near future whether the plans have changed or not but I wouldn’t be surprised to see them stick with what was said albeit quite a little longer down the line than was first expected.
  10. JT is going to cinema this year last time I heard. Probably will be a dvd release to follow as well.
  11. Looking at the running time it seems that they will start the dvd from the very beginning of the intro with the zootiful world mix going into the Chaplin speech which is great made for a really intense opening to the show. Looks like absolutely nothing will be cut.
  12. The $75 option is this years gift which is the dvd and last years gift which is the cd set with the downloads of the songs in that cd set. The Berlin show isn’t available for download. The $40 option is just this years gift.
  13. The more I think about it the more I’m convinced the show won’t be released in any other physical format and they’ll skip straight to a 4k digital only release commercially. This would be ideal because for those of us that opt for a physical item we would be getting an exclusive item and the most popular physical format as DVD’s still outsell blu Ray or 4K and for people that prefer to focus on quality they will get the very best with the digital release. There isn’t any need to release it in blu Ray as it is neither the number 1 selling physical format nor is it the best quality format and 4K DVD’s sell quite badly so they don’t need to release it physically in that format.
