You will only get one subscriber gift per subscription. Thus, if you want U22, you'd best renew ASAP before this new one gets announced.

And, you do want U22!

Droo, so the subscription gift is for the year and if it's announced and then you renew 5 mos. later, you'll get the current subscription gift then?

I think so. I'm not sure. That would be best to ask LiveNation.

So I got my subsciption but the email I got states:
Membership Package:
We are anticipating dispatch of the double-CD 'U22' in the week of August 13TH.

Does this mean I will have to wait to next year to get the gift. I don't understand :(

seriously man, no one here will be able to give you definitive answers, head over to u2.com and ask them there (forum and email).

if you feel like making the effort feel free to post any response you get back here for the rest of our info.

U2.com is never worth the aggravation.

Well October is almost over. Where's this new package announcement already. It's looking like the U22 lateness all over again.

What lateness?

Nov 2007 - U2 Go Home
Feb 2009 - Medium Rare Remastered
Mar 2010 - Artificial Horizon
Apr 2011 - Duals
Jun 2012 - U22

U2.com has been pretty consistent with a 13 to 15 month schedule.  So "late" wouldn't be until summer or fall of 2013.  Somehow people think the announcement needs to coincide with the release ala the Apple company.

I guess at some point they'll need to shorten their schedule otherwise we might get another "missed" year like when nothing came out calendar year 2008.  But wasn't that when they shifted the membership periods?

No, what MG is referring to is U2.com saying the details of the bonus live CD with this year's package would be revealed in October.

My subscription is up the end of the month , i dont want u22 again will the new package be announced by then?
 
Ive brought from the ground up which is a fantastic book. I pre ordered it so i must of had it at least a month now.
 
It seems that us u2.com subscribers will get the unsold books from the shops. Put it on sale , sell it and then we will give the mugs[me and you] who pay to subscribe to the site the ones we dont sell and idoits like me buy the book when it comes out anyway cause i cant wait [and yes im a mug] Thats how it looks to me , surely the book should have been available in a new package before it went on sale so the fans that pay their money every year get it first before any tom , d**k or harry that just walks into the shops.
 
Ive paid every year since 2004 when it started and you know what the stupid thing i will keep paying for this u2.com service. Why i ask??????

I don't care about the book. The only thing I care about is the live CD. I hope it's decent and not just like six tracks.

Enough with the subscription crap, this book will be sold in stores, right?
