I suspect they announce the gift on March 9 and it is a JT live album with RHMT as the new version.

I'd hope not.  Not that I have it, but it's been publicly available.  Folks could already have it--the gift would be kind of worthless for them.

1. I don't think people viewed that "gift" very highly either.

2. It was at least a compilation of tracks that would likely include stuff that not everyone already had.  A lot of the tracks were only available on compilation albums or albums by other artists.  Someone gave me the album, and even I didn't have a lot of those songs--and I have nearly everything U2 put out officially on CD.  (I also don't think many of them were too good, but that's beside the point.)

3. Do you WANT the Paris JT to be the gift?  I've considered buying it, but haven't so far.  I figure if I really wanted it, I'd have bought it by now.

I made an audio rip of the dvd that was on the JT boxset. And it won't be the first time they release an audio rip of a commercial dvd.
Anyway still will be better than a bunch of prints. No?

When u2 said details to be announced in the new year they obviously meant The Chinese New Year.

To be fair, they didn't say which New Year. Could be New Year 2018.  ;)

How about live pop and JT audio?
I know it will be JT related, whether egg cups or book. But a nod to the  existence of pop after 20 years wouldn't go a miss.

Sort of surprised as well,i know that obviously JT is the much bigger album and they have just announced the 30th anniversary stuff, so maybe the gift could be pop related?

Well, these releases seem to be regressive and housekeeping related so its possible. But I think the focus is on TJT at the moment.
