  1. You won't get the pony that you want. Instead you'll probably get four remixed ponies that are nothing like a pony. 🥱
  2. Previously unreleased live material from all eras of U2's career would be my wish. Complete concerts if possible.
  3. That was pretty much covered Here.
  4. Coming home right now Sirius ran the bumper/sting/whatever "Music chosen by U2." Then played "Under My Thumb" by The Rolling Stones. Really? So many songs to pick from and their most outright misogynistic one is selected? That's a head scratcher for sure. Are U2 actually picking these individual tracks for air play?
  5. Back in 2015 I ordered a shirt from the US shop. My card was immediately charged and that was it. A month passed with no development so I emailed the shop to find out where my shirt was. A message came back saying that the design, (despite being new and just added to the shop), was out of stock and on backorder. A refund was offered. At the time I thought that this was very poor service. Absolutely ever other online store I have purchased from informed me immediately if an item was out of stock and delayed. It seems that the situation has gotten much worse since. The attitude seems to be
  6. This will be another year where I do not use my subscriber's 25% off coupon. Really not impressed by the overpriced and unimaginative designs. Between you and me there are unofficial products available online that are superior in every way. The mods cannot be praised enough for the work they do. The official U2 online store has been failing fans for a few years now and they have done tremendous work on our behalf.
  7. In light of Bono being awarded for his work for, and in support of, women's rights it's somewhat jarring to turn on the U2 Sirius channel and hear Kendrick Lamar repeat over and over, "Bitch don't kill my vibe."
  8. U2 are known for their focus on perfection and getting everything just right. However I have noticed some flaws getting through in recent live releases. The live concerts on recent deluxe reissues have included lyrical flubs by Bono. For example on "Bullet The Blue Sky" from NYC on JT30 he sings.. "Take the first floor to the first floor." There is something similar on the Boston show on ATYCLB deluxe. Maybe they are relaxing a bit and overlooking imperfections in otherwise solid performances. If so we may eventually see some Apollo 360 footage. Perhaps not the entire show but clips
  9. Looking forward to the JT30 film coming out on laser disc. ⏪⏮▶️⏹⏭⏩
  10. You're absolutely correct @adrnik I was thinking of the Fish Out Of Water mix not the Perfecto mix.
  11. Personally I think that the entire audio should be available as soon as the subscription is renewed. That way we can enjoy what we paid for while awaiting the physical item to arrive. The way SOI/SOE Live was rolled out with random songs every six weeks or so didn't make sense to me.
  12. Hi Doc, I completely agree with you about the perfecto mix of Even Better... it's great and I play it regularly. This arrangement was performed by the band at Glastonbury and onwards during the 2011 leg of 360. It's a knockout live. I also like the Trent Reznor mix of Get On Your Boots that is on Artificial Horizon. He took the manic energy (Edge's riff) out of it, calmed it down and made the song much more likeable for me. On the bonus disc of Greatest Hits 90-00 there is a remix of Dirty Day that I quite like. It's called The Junk Day mix. It's got more punch and energy than the or
  13. To be honest I always assumed that the Apollo release would be incomplete and edited. That seems to be the norm for U2 nowadays. (Look at the NYC show on JT30 deluxe and Chicago on ATYCLB deluxe). We are getting previous unreleased live material which hands down beats the thirty year old remixes we've gotten in recent years. Obviously the full show would be ideal but that seems unlikely.
  14. Excellent! Great choice for the annual gift. As stated above I really hope that the full show is released. Very exciting news.
  15. I came across a copy of "Medium, Rare & Remastered" on Discogs that was listed as being in near mint condition. The price was within reason so I took a gamble. It arrived today and looks almost new. Played and handled seldomly by the looks of things. I'm going to wrap it and put it under the tree addressed to me from Santa. 🎅🤶
  16. Back in summer of 1989 I was walking up the hill to Sunday's Well and I spotted Joe O walking down the hill on the opposite side. 'Twas the beard that gave him away.
  17. 2021 is the 30th anniversary of Achtung, Baby! so something related to that album seems more likely. Please no more remixes.
  18. I can't articulate this properly so please bear with me. In the last few years I have come to realize that there is only love. Everything else is delusion. When some behaves badly it is because they are turning away from love. When I say LOVE I'm not referring to romantic or family love. I mean all of us are in a sea of love but don't know, just as fish don't notice water. As I said initially it is difficult for me to explain this realization but I have found that once I paid attention to it I noticed love more and more.
  19. My copy of BOY (RSD white vinyl edition) arrived today. I was fortunate enough to buy it online from a record store who charged retail price. Otherwise it was the resellers on Ebay who want way too much. It sounds fantastic. Adam's bass comes through loud and clear.
  20. JT got two different anniversary reissues in 2007 and 2017 so I wouldn't be at all surprised if AB got the same treatment.
  21. The obvious answer is a 30th anniversary rerelease of "Achtung, Baby!" Possibly the JT30 tour will finally get a live film release, it would be cool to have some footage from the JT2019 tour added to the already existing JT2017 tour film. I do hope that they have spent down time in 2020 writing and perhaps recording. New music in the new year would be welcome but I don't know how likely that would be. Perhaps they'll spring a surprise album on us similar to the unexpected SOI. All in all.... who knows? There will be no tour in 2021, that's the one prediction I feel comfortable making
