  1. I wouldn’t be happy if they released Berlin physically on blu Ray or 4k having paid more for a dvd version of the show. If it gets released digitally in 4k that’s fine but I want the fanclub version to be the only physical officially released version otherwise it devalues it releasing it in higher quality to the general public.
  2. I just want to post another comment about the Apollo set. Really I think it’s excellent we’re getting the full show, I do hope we get the full show to download soon while we wait for the physical release but I also hope in future we’ll continue to get plenty of live stuff. I have to admit I’m not interested in books or photos but if that is a gift one year at least give us a full show to download alongside that. The fanclub is heading in the right direction, a full show 2 years in a row, one on cd, one on dvd and the year prior to that 2 cd’s worth of live material including some really rare l
  3. Credit where it’s due, they’ve made it the full show on 2 discs even though they hadn’t previously specified it was a 2cd set. I really didn’t expect the full show. To get Red Flag Day when it hasn’t been broadcast either is a really good touch too. Thumbs up u2.com.
  4. I didn’t bother tuning in tonight and quite glad if I’m honest. A gig that’s already been released on blu Ray and they put a couple of 4k videos up on YouTube but then make the full gig available only in 1080p. Completely pointless, maybe we’ll get more unreleased shows one day.
  5. You can easily get Discotheque on the beautiful day cd single. Same as velvet dress though. Mofo was on hasta la vista cd but that’s not so easy to get. They did just put Mofo on the YouTube channel though. All you need is the dvd anyway and then you’ve got the whole gig
  6. The 11th June is 3 years since the show, will they have all the downloads available by then at least or is that asking too much. Trying to put it to the back of my mind but it is very frustrating. How can other bands have a quick turn around of multiple shows not just to download but on cd but it takes u2.com forever to give us 1 show on download never mind the physical release. Disappointing tbh. It will be a kick in the teeth as well if in the next few weeks they provide us with 1 or 2 songs to download to tide us over.
  7. Just throwing another idea into the mix which for me anyway would tick a lot of boxes in the one go. A cd or 2cd set of tracks that have never been officially released live before. I don’t know if the band have recordings in the vaults from the early days but songs like Rejoice, Tomorrow, Like A Song (only played once live), wire, Indian Summer Sky, Babyface, The Wanderer (Johnny Cash Tribute night version), The First Time, Do You Feel Loved, Miami, Wild Honey, The Ground Beneath Her Feet, Crumbs From Your Table, Fast Cars, A Man And A Woman (Clinton foundation event version), Lucifers Hands,
  8. There is official word underneath the new t shirts in the merchandise section when you click on one it says for 48 hours.
  9. I can only fully agree with the original post. There’s nothing worse on u2.com than getting a short clip of a song live knowing they must have filmed the full song and that we’ll likely never see the whole performance. I’d genuinely rather not see anything than a 30 second teaser. Also for next year a zoo tv show from early in the tour is a perfect idea. These shows are amongst the best in the bands history. Stockholm would be a great obvious choice. However, it doesn’t even need to be as specific as sticking to a certain show or tour I just want them to keep on making the fanclub gift a live
  10. It’s all if’s and but’s with shipping just now anyway I wouldn’t expect the item to be shipped early February but I’m not excusing them from delays down the line either. My main and original point that is about just now is the downloads. There isn’t a good reason why they aren’t ready as soon as we resubscribe.
  11. A lot of the problems with delays with fan club gifts has nothing to do with shipping anyway. It’s getting the item produced that’s the delay and that is entirely a u2.com/livenation issue to resolve. If they actually started shipping in June say then even if there was shipping issues/delays that would be fine the gift would arrive in good time. Last year during the pandemic showed that they could get a gift out to fans at a good time, there’s no reason to drop below they standards it would be nothing to do with shipping delays and all to do with a poorly managed service at u2.com if they don’
  12. I know where you are coming from but really even though you say you aren’t defending live nation that is exactly what you’re doing. How is it that people who ordered ATYCLB boxsets from u2.com were still waiting on it up until recently and might still be waiting for all I know but people who ordered from Amazon got it straight away and slightly cheaper. A few people were even given the 2cd ATYCLB set instead of the boxset they ordered. The live songs of innocence and experience cd issue was before any pandemic, that was a mess up plain and simple, they said shipping in the spring and were abou
  13. Seems really pointless to me. With the Berlin show they were streaming that in March, wouldn’t the equivalent with this show just be to give us all the downloads straight away? I’d also like to think it will be dispatched well before August so all the downloads should be with us way before that too , they were a bit of a shambles with that live songs of innocence and experience set claiming it would be shipping in the spring I believe then not actually shipping until November. They haven’t mentioned when shipping will start yet but hopefully things are done more like the Berlin dvd release rat
  14. I have to ask the question why can’t we have downloads straight away from the Apollo show when we resubscribe? This show was played more than 2 and a half years ago why isn’t it good to go?
  15. That was a bit bizarre they’ve already upgraded it without doing the premiere etc.
  16. I agree with this also. Different if the show was only played last week and they took a few weeks to master it but we’re talking about a show that was played more than 2 years ago now. Downloads straight away would make the wait for the physical item seem much better.
  17. You know the gift is in audio right? There won’t be much to view.
  18. It’s exactly as was said you get the Apollo show on cd and download if you get the basic subscription and if you get the premium subscription you get the Apollo show on cd and download as well as the E&I Berlin dvd and access to the 4K HD stream of that Berlin show. It’s very clear in the wording. I don’t disagree though that they could just tell us what we’re getting with the Apollo cd and download just now but I’m not feeling particularly impatient on the matter just now.
  19. Well they gave us 4 vinyl with the JTsingles collection so I guess from a financial point of view a double vinyl as well as cd and download wouldn’t cost any more to produce. Greedy of me perhaps but that really would be the very best way to do it. Even a triple vinyl for some of the longer live sets with double cd and download would probably be cheaper than 4 vinyl. But just to clarify I’m happy with cd and download if they gave us the options I’d end up asking my better half to get a subscription so I could have the gift on vinyl and cd so it would cost me more.
  20. I’ve started a u2 vinyl collection and as much as I like vinyl now I still like having a cd as a physical back up to a download. If my MacBook was to break somehow and I only had vinyl as back up that’s me lost the tracks whereas with a cd I can just burn that onto iTunes. But would I complain at a vinyl/download set no just prefer cd. Dvd definitely can’t be replaced by vinyl they’re not comparable formats. Blu Ray and 4K is better but I thought the Berlin dvd was good picture quality compared to there old DVD’s. More people own a cd and DVD player than a vinyl and blu Ray player so that has
  21. They wouldn’t need to omit anything like 1/3 or 1/2 of the show. A cd fits 80 minutes on it. The Apollo was a good bit shorter than the E&I shows. They would only need to omit 1 or 2 songs at most from the Setlist. As I said if gaps which are basically just crowd noise is edited out then the whole performance minus Red Flag Day would fit on 1 disc. If they took out 2 songs they wouldn’t need to edit other bits out but it seems pointless to keep long pauses with only crowd noise bits in.
  22. They did specify double cd when they did the live songs of innocence and experience release, I think they would have done the same here. Why would they undersell it? You could be right in terms of the literal meaning of the description but realistically it’s going to be 1 cd so I’m just hoping they don’t omit songs even when they have the space to include them. If we were really lucky maybe a bonus download or 2 would complete the set. I guess we’ll just need to wait and see.
  23. Assuming it’s one cd as I’m sure they would have made clear if it was 2 it’s likely not going to be the full set. Red Flag Day I’d imagine will be out since it wasn’t included in the broadcast. The rest of the tracks can then be edited down to less than 80 minutes (no encore gaps etc) so it’s possible to fit them all in one cd. I wouldn’t be massively disappointed not to get some of the tracks that have appeared on numerous live releases already but I guess my question would be why not put them all on there?
  24. This is really good. I’m glad they’ve continued with the live music gifts and look forward to receiving it.
