Any news of 2017 Fan Club subscribers "gift" ?
« on: November 07, 2016, 01:48:39 PM »
Even though the CDs / books / art prints never actually arrive until the middle of the following year, I think the fan club subscriber's gift has generally been announced before November.  Has anyone heard news/rumors?  I couldn't even hazard a guess as to what they might offer next, unless it's a CD version of the Paris concert.

Yeah, its generally this time of year that they announce it.  I wonder since they had to extend the membership by a month last year, if that means we are now working on a new timeline going forward.

Maybe they're waiting for tour dates?

I wouldn't think so, but who knows.  Does anyone recall if there was any warning before that the gift was about to be announced, or did they just come out with it?

I am expecting bobbleheads based on the Macnas paper mache heads.

Received this update from U2.com last night:


"Looks like 2017 will be a busy one for the band - make sure you stay tuned over the next few weeks.

For now we wanted to let you know that in the early part of the New Year, in line with the start of the subscription renewal cycle, we’ll be revealing the special gift that comes with our 2017 subscription package.

As always a subscription will offer you exclusive online content and, if the band announce a tour, you gain access to ticket presales.

We’ll email you when the new gift is announced and send you reminder emails in the final days of your subscription term.

But if you’d like to resubscribe now, 2017 Subscriptions and Renewals are open.

best wishes
The U2.com Team"

I received one last night telling me that renewals would be starting soon. It seems like most subscribers have starting receiving them by now.

I've been a member for 9 years and don't recall a resubscribe call without the "gift" announced.  My guess is the fan club management don't have a clue what it should be, perhaps they ran out of ideas after this year's posters?

Is this the first time U2 has asked fans to resubscribe without divulging the "gift"?

That's the funny part... asking fans to resubscribe without a gift, telling them that if there's a tour there's a code.
That's ridiculous, don't send a mail, better to wait than saying useless things and ask money for it.
Anyway, they don't ran out of ideas, there's just gonna do what they did in the first place, release an audio cd of a commercial dvd... so you guessed it, the paris concert.

Live in Paris on Vinyl. I'm in  :)! Could be a great cover art with the stage as cover and the LED screen on the inside of the gatefolded cover (UTEOTW) , with 2 or 3 LP's (inclusive The Fly and Patti Smith).

So if they ran out of ideas; here is an idea!
