  1. Its only boring and predictable if you're going to more than one show or watch the periscopes each night ... I had a little look at the Milan setlist and there's 12 songs that I've never seen them play before ... and they've dropped all the Joshua Tree songs. I've been going to see U2 since 1997 and each tour is different to the last ... if you only go to one show then you'll realise how radical and brave the set lists are compared to the previous tour ... most fans can't afford to go to two shows in a row. I personally can't wait for Manchester show. Enjoy the gigs for what they are. No ones forcing you to go.
  2. What was the point of me signing up as a fan club member for presale when O2 have an hour head start over the fan club? I'm an O2 Customer. what a waste of money ... oh and my gift still hasn't arrived
  3. I work for Royal Mail (in one of the biggest Mail Centres) and the slowest service we offer is second class and officially that is delivered within 3 days ... often its advanced to 2 days. It's highly doubtful that all of us dotted around the UK would have all of our items delayed within the system. Highly doubtful. Also we are not currently experiencing any real backlog of mail. Black Friday was busy but we resourced to manage it. Currently Christmas Cards are busy but yet again we're pretty much on top. Why I keep getting emails advising me to wait 7-10 days for delivery is beyond me.
  4. Still not received mine ... ... very very unhappy .... by pre-ordering the album you'd expect to get it on release day or thereabouts ... My friend at work ordered it through amazon and he received his the day before the official release, It's took the shine off receiving the album in all honesty. I was excited and now I'm fed up.
  5. Mike also wrote my response but he feels that I didn't pay enough money to receive the album on release day
  6. It's amazing .. the litany of excuses ... In my case ... Ok I ordered standard delivery and the wording on standard delivery read "will ship to arrive around street date 1st December" ... which I still expect 1st December but it could be the 2nd or 4th. But why would any right minded fan pre-order an album a month before release date and expect to it arrive anywhere up to 10-11 days after release. Fans want the record on day 1. Besides it was shipped via Royal Mail on 30th November. All of our products posted on that day would've had roughly a 99.0% (our latest Quality Of Service results against a target of 98.5%) chance of being delivered by the 4th December. I cannot believe Live Nation would blame the customer in this scenario. At least try blame the mail carrier.
  7. Dear U2 Merch Team its all well and good sending me these emails advertising your products ... how about you concentrate on getting the new album I ordered a month ago to me. Or replying to your emails. I paid extra to pre-order the album via U2.com and postage ... I could've ordered it cheaper and received it on time if I used Amazon (free postage too) or walked to my local store. With the tour ticket fiasco you seem to be pissing off your most loyal and understanding of fans these days.
  8. I've still not received mine ... I'm also in the U.K. (I also work for Royal Mail and as far as I'm aware there is no real backlog that's unusual for December ... as expected we fell a bit behind over Black Friday but now we're on track again) ... I've emailed Live Nation twice and I've had no response ... Very disappointed.
  9. Still nothing today and also mine has the same thing on the tracker. I've sent two emails to live nation and yet to have a response.
  10. I blame the people who buy from scalpers or resale sites. If people boycotted them then there is no business model.
  11. Does anyone know what time it's finishing? Email says collect wristbands before 2pm and to arrive at Trafalgar Square by 3pm. And for U2 to play for 40 minutes. I need to leave at 6.50 - 7pm because I would have to catch a train to Doncaster because I'm on stage at my own gig at 10pm
  12. How about just putting your phone down and watching the gig?
  13. If that were true, GA wouldn't be $70, though. Most performers charge the same as lower bowl or more for floor seats. I agree ...pretty much all the standing at the front was aimed for the subscribers ... at a reasonable price ... we all had the chance to buy them with our codes .. no one outside of the subscribers had a chance in hell of getting a GA ticket at any of the shows
  14. I think this paperless thing is a dreadful idea and I'm sad to hear everyones dilemma ... I'm lucky that I have the correct tickets for the shows I am going to ... The best way to combat scalpers is for people simply to not buy tickets over face value - its that easy ... if you pay more than face value then YOU are the problem ... I actually like the odd tout outside the venue ... they can be pretty useful ... I've turned up to loads of gigs and bought tickets off them for less than face value or traded seated tickets for standing etc... it should be made law for tickets not to be sold over face value ... I also think it should be made easier to return tickets to the venue say 30 days before the event to be then given a chance to be resold to the public
  15. mine was posted on the 20th January ... Also I needed to sign for it as it came registered post
  16. Mine just arrived ... love it ... looks ace ... as an avid U2 vinyl collector ... I've got all the albums plus lots of 12'' promos and rare stuff this is my prize possession
  17. Hey Mich ... just had an email from U2.com congratulating and telling us that the records are in the post x
  18. Great Collection Mich ... I've got pretty much the same ... I just need the Best Of 1980-1990-2000 and the Wide Awake in Europe which are all so expensive... my 12'' and 7'' collection are looking pretty good too ... though I would love a cheap copy of Ordinary Love ... Can't seem to get it here in the UK for less than £50 ... I wont pay stupid prices ... plus its a bit of a hobby to try and find these records ... so like yourself to win this version of SOI is unbelievable ... will fit in just nicely
  19. I was doing an acoustic session on the radio the other day ... I dont know why but I had the urge to throw in a cover of 'Love Is Blindness' you can hear it here https://soundcloud.com/rob-galloway/love-is-blindness-live-at-elfm-chapel ... I'd love to hear your thoughts ... thanks P.S. if you like it then this is one of my own songs from the same session https://soundcloud.com/rob-galloway/bitter-end-live-at-elfm-chapel-studio-ft-kieran-o-malley
