Title: Any news of 2017 Fan Club subscribers "gift" ?
Post by: judgesmails 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?

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!

I don't think so. You are saying you've been in for 9 years, and I got back to Propaganda, so we've both been at this a while, but I could swear there have been several times in recent years they have asked for renewals before announcing the the exclusive. I say exclusive now, because it isn't a gift if you are paying for it.

Of course, this year they know that everyone knows an album in coming in the next 6 months with a tour to follow, and we are all paying $50 to get cheap GA floors. They could offer a set of commemorative stamps as the 'gift' this year and we'd have no choice other than to lap it up due to the impending tour.

There's always a choice. I have never had membership and watched them every tour since pop excluding all that you can't leave behind tour. Never  problems getting good tickets. How much cheaper are GA with membership? I'm guessing its not the difference of membership price or more..

It's more about the bragging right's being able to tell fellow fans how you got GA tickets before anyone else :o ,everything on that site is available elsewhere the only thing it has going for it is the gifts ,U22,Go home CD,From the ground up with Edge's picks were all pretty dam cool ,interesting they are not revealing the new gift for 2017 maybe a tie in with the new album might be a better way than forcing it to the great unwashed via Apple.

Released December 2006.  Within the last couple of years they also offered "unsold" (for lack of a better word) copies of this as an optional add-on to the resubscription package.

If it's an arena tour I think being in the fan club will help you, but I don't think you'll need it for stadium tickets. 

Also be aware that for the SoI tour they rewarded long-term subscribers with earlier access to the presale.  That said I got the tickets I wanted outside of the presale/fan club but perhaps that is because they played so many shows in my city (6).

I never even got my gift from last year, then I was told that if I resubscribe I'll get it. If it weren't for the presale tickets I wouldn't even bother with the membership. You can even find the gifts for sale on Amazon and eBay if you really want them.

Post by: dwaltman on January 06, 2017, 08:49:48 AM
I totally get the push-on the membership.  For me, a member every year since U2.com went live, it gives me the peace of mind that I'll be able to get a couple of tickets where and when I want.  I usually end up going to more shows and getting tickets on the general sale and I've been pretty successful.  I'm in the first tier now and I'm not going to give it up.  I usually take one special trip and I like knowing that if I want to travel to the tour opener or closer, or a city that I've never been that I will be able to get tix.

I have been shut of shows for other artists that I've wanted to see.....Springsteen in my hometown last year comes to mind.

While the other membership merchandise has been up/down, I enjoy most of them too. I like the book and the early concerts.  They could definitely add more live content for members to access/download.

Mine has been in it's tube for months, unopened. I took it out at the weekend. They are really quite nice but i don't have room on my walls for them so gifts like that are pointless for me really.

The lithographs were cool but I believe (I could be wrong) that most U2.com suscribers are probably in their 30's to 50's which means they don't have a (free) teenager bedroom anymore along with the walls that go with it. I know I don't.

I wouldn't mind having a Joshua Tree goodie, this time.

$50 for a few photographs and priority to get tickets - it seems u2.com are creaming a great deal of profit rather than thinking of giving fans something they would really like to own.  Each year it should be vinyl of a special concert of set of recordings.

I'd say no to vinyl--I'm just not a vinyl collector, nor do I have any means to play it--but some kind of unique recording on CD would be great.  I suspect, too, that vinyl would be much more expensive to produce, particularly for a limited run.

Love the vinyl releases, dig the CD exclusives. It boggles the mind just how cheap this fan club is. I'm the millionth person to say it, but U2.com should take a look at Pearl Jam's Ten Club and take notes. There are two tiers-BOTH cheaper than U2.com-and they give you a heck of a lot of stuff. In one year I got the newsletter in the mail (and PDF), a poster, a patch, a sticker, a vinyl single, a live album of my choice and pre-sales.

Every year you get all this (and more), and every year is very different.

The difference is Pearl Jam runs their own club and cares about the fans. U2 foolishly let's Live Nation run everything. Really sad.

I just want them to allow us to download individual shows. So many other artists do this and yet U2 still refuses to give us any option for that, other than bootlegs on fan sites.

I know other artists have done this: Peter Gabriel, Depeche Mode, and Genesis, that I know of 1st hand.  Though I prefer a more polished approach--have them pick a single show that was recorded WELL, and put it out.  The ones I have from Depeche Mode and Peter Gabriel are maybe interesting as a souvenir, but none of them are exactly repeat listening. 

For example, they should do an official release of the Point Depot New Year's Eve show, which was done as a radio broadcast.  Or the other radio broadcasts they've done over the years--Zoo TV Dublin, PopMart Sarajevo, etc.  Put a nice package together, polish up the audio, and make them worthwhile.

Just my take.

I guarantee if people were able to stream any show they wanted at anytime with the U2.com website, more would consider keeping their subscription past the touring year. Right now the only perks of membership are presale codes, a 25% off merchandise coupon, the ability to stream any album, and whatever gift they send out each year (which probably costs less than a few dollars to produce).

Why they don't do this, I have no idea.

It would be strange if it isn't Joshua Tree-themed, but I wonder what they could possibly have left in the vaults of release-quality from that album/tour that we don't already have. I hope it isn't some kind of photo book or poster. Count me among those adults who don't have the room for such things. I want MUSIC.

Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen and Metallica put every show out now and they are all very high quality.

No reason U2 can't do the same.

Love the vinyl releases, dig the CD exclusives. It boggles the mind just how cheap this fan club is. I'm the millionth person to say it, but U2.com should take a look at Pearl Jam's Ten Club and take notes. There are two tiers-BOTH cheaper than U2.com-and they give you a heck of a lot of stuff. In one year I got the newsletter in the mail (and PDF), a poster, a patch, a sticker, a vinyl single, a live album of my choice and pre-sales.

Every year you get all this (and more), and every year is very different.

The difference is Pearl Jam runs their own club and cares about the fans. U2 foolishly let's Live Nation run everything. Really sad.

I just want them to allow us to download individual shows. So many other artists do this and yet U2 still refuses to give us any option for that, other than bootlegs on fan sites.
No kidding. U2 are obsessed with recording everything that they do. Band sessions, concerts, you name it.

I was surpsied when I tried to purchase tickets without putting in my pre-sale access code, that Ticket MAster allowed me to buy tickets during the pre-sale period and simply included with the tickets, a fan club membership.  Didn't seem fair to me.

Yes, Bono goes a bit full on in Paris Paris but come on... The last leg of the JT Tour (already documented in Rattle and Hum) has the weakest vocals... Bono's voice is gone. Proof : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkCm0u77caM

I really hope they have a European show on audio. Cork sounded great in terms of band performance.

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... a CD would be nice... I was gobsmacked that the download did not include a high quality mp3 or lossless audio file version... maybe even of an alternate show or some tour rarities (e.g. Crystal Ballroom in Boston, Zoo Station in Berlin etc.)  Oh well.  Maybe they'll offer some wash off tattoos for my kid.

I am guessing this is pretty far down on the priority list, as this tour seems to have come together pretty quickly, and I am not 100 percent sure they know exactly what they are doing yet. The merch people are probably hard at work on the tour swag, so I wouldn't hold my breath on an announcement any time soon.

Yeah.  I wonder when they NEED to have a product ready by?  Is it any time in the calendar year--so they'd be within their rights to crank something out by December?

If that were the case, a live recording from the tour would seem to be a decent option, and something I'd gladly welcome.  Otherwise, I'd guess it would be something U2 or JT-themed: prints, keychain, etc.

I'm kind of feeling the same way about this. I'm not expecting it to be a good gift. What would be cool is if they're planning a live compilation album for TJT tour this year (like what they did with 360 several years back) or even a DVD of one of the concerts.

My subscription ends in 2 days and I am on the fence about renewing.  I wasn't even able to use my code this time around and found the posters to be useless.  Am I just throwing $40 down the drain?

Out of curiosity, who has resubscribed with the "gift" remaining sight unseen?  Did you renew in the hopes that another leg of shows will be announced in the next 12 months?  What's the point?

mine expires next week.  i think i will probably wait until next year and select a bundle with two years of 'gifts'.  With the gift being delayed each year, they will eventually have to skip a year, so i might just skip it now.

Same. I subbed in January and the presale code was essential to getting GA tickets for one of the shows I wanted to go to.

It's looking like I'll be re-subbing next January if the Spring 2018 tour rumors ring true.

Been a continuous member since the Propaganda days, however I thought long and hard about renewing this time around. My face is still sore after finding out members of 20+ years standing were bundled together in the pre-sales with those joining immediately prior to the JT tour announcement. Given the limited tour dates and therefore ticket availability, totally convinced this was a deliberate move simply to generate hype resulting in inflated prices in the resale market to the benefit of LN, Ticketmaster etc. Anyway, the bad taste clearly just wasn't bad enough as I finally gave in to my conscience and parted with more "hard earned cash on a rock show".

I haven't read one favourable comment about the gift last year, not even from the most diehard fans.  If you're paying $50 you'd expect a decent gift to show they've thought of and appreciate the fans.  I haven't seen the pictures but cannot imagine them having cost more than a dollar to produce.

The lithographs are beautiful and good quality. Nothing wrong with them except that I'm not 15 and don't have a room to display them.

I think they were cool items sent to the wrong people.

It's only 40 Dollars to renew your membership. That's 10 bucks added to every u2 ticket in the presale - not a bad deal.

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?

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

I wish for something pop related, but I agree it will be JT. But the big anniversary package probably rules out a live jt album, bsides etcetera unless they are shameless enough to flog that dead horse to the same people just that one more time? Oh..no wait,I think I know the answer to that..

Yeah, the JT thing has been completely saturated. The subscribers gift HAS to be something unrelated to that album - or fans are gonna have a meltdown.

Something Pop related would be perfect. But It wont be. They hate the album and completely disown it.

In all seriousness ... We know that fan messages occasionally to get through to the band. I wonder if they are aware of the VOCAL base of PopMartians that are out there. You lot are a fiercely loyal bunch. Like people whose favorite Star Wars movie is The Phantom Menace and loved New Coke. :)

If I had my choice, I would like a collection of outtakes that didn't make the cut since Medium, Rare And Remastered. An ep containing good versions, the new live songs from 360, Soon, Mercy (studio) and both versions of Winter would be awesome. Vinyl with a download code or CD. Either one guys. I'm not picky.

Post by: Johnny Feathers on March 13, 2017, 09:35:56 AM
I think it says something that folks sign up for the membership without knowing what the "gift" will be.  They do it for access to tickets.  As much as folks may complain about the "gift" or the lack of announcement about it, it's always been beside the point.

Personally, I'd happily take a copy of those new mixes TJT box set, but I'm guessing the fact they're included there means the fan club will get something else.

Could be. The problems there are this: If they make the show/shows available to us, why not to everyone, and secondly, those things don't exactly go for big bucks. You can get whole Springsteen shows for $9.99. That's not a great value on a $50 fan club package, especially considering all the awesome 360 stuff we got.

They totally muffed up by not putting a version of Wide Awake In Europe on CD as the subscriber gift a few years ago.

Ultimately, we're fans of the MUSIC. The books, T-shirts, prints & fancy heart shaped keyrings are just... tangential.

Make the gift why we liked U2 in the first place. Let Me In The Sound. Let Me In The Sound.

There's plenty of live stuff that is ideal for Fan Club gifting. A full live show released every year as a fanclub DVD/CD i.e. 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1992, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2009, for example, will stand them well and last them many years. Throw in some fancy packaging, call it the "U2.com Archive Series" and add the odd unreleased or alternate studio tracks and effectively we're locked in for years.

Throw in some fancy packaging, call it the "U2.com Archive Series" and add the odd unreleased or alternate studio tracks and effectively we're locked in for years.

Package a shirt with a CD like they did with Go Home. Shirts are great ... as bonuses. And I agree 100 percent about Wide Awake In Europe. They should have done a fanclub version of that on CD with a few extra tracks, like the ones I named earlier on this thread.

Guys, for those that didn't get the booklet, its the quality of your mailbox weekly coupon magazine. It would be a very disappointing gift.

The U2 marketing team created the illusion of scarcity by only printing 1500 copies, so of course fans want in. But its seriously a mediocre commodity. Im keeping it just because... but trust me. Ain't missing much.

(Wonder what else U2 can get away with by creating fake scarcity)

Why play them? Keep them wrapped up as collectors items. You must have at least 253 versions of the 4 recorded songs already, and you will be able to hear the live versions about 72 times (how many shows are they doing?) over the coming month or two.

That's the problem with comments like this.... non sense at all. You have to be at least 50 to listen to vinyls? Next time go and check in any record store you may find around your place and you'll see that it is a medium that is also enjoyed by young people these days and they will probably tell you that CD is old-fashioned. As a collector item (which is also a purpose of the fan club gift) it is well done and can't wait to have it... not just to frame a bunch of covers. I hope the next one will be a CD so you can also enjoy them, but we had tons in the beginning and this one is totally in line with what's happening now (have you heard about RSD by the way?)

Yes, I think this is a thoughtful "gift" for fan club subscribers.  Certainly a better effort than the posters they put out last year.   If people don't have record players maybe u2.com will send them mp3s as well as the vinyl, but the vinyl itself looks nice.

Cool collector item and new live music. If you don't like it, I don't know what you'll like...

I would like an all analogue chain where the source material was recorded to analogue tape. u2 and the label clearly understand the vinyl revival of the past 10 years, but they certainly don't understand vinyl. The Joshua Tree remaster was a huge missed opportunity to do a definitive 2LP pressing of the album. Now we're getting "digitally remastered" 10" EPs. Sure I get that it looks cool and the collector factor, but I don't buy records to frame them and I certainly don't buy records that are digitally remastered (why not just acquire the digital source material and skip the extra step in the chain?) unless:

a) the digital remastering is unique to the vinyl and has a more open, dynamic mastering
b) there is no digital option of said digital mastering

For example all the Led Zeppelin remasters Page did over the past couple years were remastered "from the original tapes" at 24/96. The 24/96 download is the exact file the records were cut from, so why waste money on the records? Similarly Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails recently confirmed the 24-bit downloads available after purchasing the new remastered records are the files the vinyl are being cut from. Broken (EP) sounds awful digital, so it will sound even worse on vinyl. Terribly heavy handed mastering. He opines that vinyl is the way these albums were meant to be heard, which makes no sense as the source material is digital. Now consider Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Stadium Arcadium" - the digital version is a total victim of the loudness wars, but Frusciante insisted the sessions be recorded and mixed to tape (with digital as a back-up) and Warner sent the stereo master to Steve Hoffman to cut a 4LP vinyl version directly from the tapes, massive difference. The Beatles in Mono vinyl release, all analogue, brilliant.

There is a very big difference between the following marketing blurbs:

a) Mastered from the original analogue tapes
b) Mastered AND CUT from the original analogue tapes

There are a number of studios that have all analogue chains (meaning no digital delay in the cutter either) including Bernie Grundman Mastering (Chris Bellman and Bernie Grundman), Steve Hoffman Mastering, Cohearant (Kevin Gray), Sterling Sound (Ryan K Smith) and Abbey Road (Sean Magee).

Digital isn't a bad word by any means, but in this case it does seem redundant and I'd wager the download that becomes available will show that the source material is heavily compressed.

Very nice to get a free gift though. Fingers crossed some day they'll do a 5.1 Blu-ray of The Joshua Tree (studio 5.1 mix).

Hey how are you? I do not see this as a problem neither a non sense in a comment. This is my opinion. My expectations were frustrated with this surprise gift, and I am sure I am not the only one (check the other thread :) ). I am a fan but not a collector (although I truly appreciate ones who take it seriously) as I am used to put on the daily life use every few things I have from the guys. That's why the framing idea came from. Put into use. Gift CDs as U22 are still frequently played, books that I've read more than 3 times are now on a special place as decor pieces together with some cool posters, T-shirts, wow I really wear them all. Vinyls might be getting popular again but most homes as mine (still/anymore) do not have a turntable to play. An extra expense I was not expecting to have if they asked the fans whether they were interested into getting CDs or vinyls. I am with you when I hear my 17 yo nephews say CDs are old fashioned. However, far from being extincted. Glad to hear more on RDS.

Glad to hear more on RDS.

Record Store Day for the most part fleeces those who care about format, but not about sound quality. Look no further than the die cut (in the shape of Africa) single of Toto's "Africa" that was released this year. It's flippers getting up at 3am to line up to ensure they grab the rarest of items so they can sell them on eBay at a 100%+ mark-up.

It's not great for stores either, they have to order so much stock to have a chance to get the rarer items people are lining up for, then they get stuck with a bunch of junk no-one's looking for. Take a pop down to the average indie store and ask them how much RSD junk they've been left with over the years. It's a game they have to play though. If you order 5 copies of one item, you might not get any. Order 50 and you might get 5 or you might get 20.

At the end of the day it's capitalism though, so we only have the people lining up to blame. There are occasionally good releases done properly, but those do see regular releases later as well so unless you need some tie-dyed, glow in the dark, scratch and sniff vinyl compound that's likely noisier than black vinyl anyway, it's a miss for me.

I haven't gone to an RSD for a few years now. I always had a good time lining up really early in the morning with strangers discussing music, but the quality of the material offered in this 10 year anniversary last month was pretty shoddy and so many of the majors press records at plants with little to no quality control like United in Nashville which I think is where my very noisy 2LP Joshua Tree was pressed.

Vinyl when done right can sound absolutely amazing, unfortunately it's a rarity these days and unless you're buying releases from specialty labels like Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs, Audio Fidelity, Analogue Productions, Analog Spark, Intervention Records, ORG Music, etc, you're often better off with the CD or digital download.

I'm format agnostic and can buy any of the physical formats still currently supported so I have no horse in this race, just stating my opinion.

That's all I'm hoping for--and I don't even need the A-sides.  All in all, this is a pretty worthless gift for me, but maybe I'll be able to sell them and recoup the cost of the membership.  Or at least part of it.

Good thanks. On the bright side maybe cds will be cool again in 20 years from now... who knows.
I don't want to enter the digital/analog, sound quality debate. That's not the point. I'm just saying that vinyl is not an old fashioned medium as you may think, so the gift is kinda cool as it's still music and in a beautiful package. Don't worry there will be downloads available for all tracks, probably just mp3 but still something to listen on "new" devices.
I totally agree with the RSD comment, it has become something for resellers on eBay and for labels to release again and again the same stuff. My point was that there's a demand for  that, you can see every day that vinyl is more and more present in the stores nowadays. Now I know how it is with this gift and sure they can't please everyone. I was frustrated last year with the posters, other people liked it. And that doesn't mean that if they give us a cd it is something nice, remember duals ?
So let's hope next gift will be a cd again so you'll be able to enjoy it again.... and don't take this personally, that's just my opinion (good or not)

I always had a good time lining up really early in the morning with strangers discussing music, but the quality of the material offered in this 10 year anniversary last month was pretty shoddy and so many of the majors press records at plants with little to no quality control like United in Nashville which I think is where my very noisy 2LP Joshua Tree was pressed.

Vinyl when done right can sound absolutely amazing, unfortunately it's a rarity these days and unless you're buying releases from specialty labels like Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs, Audio Fidelity, Analogue Productions, Analog Spark, Intervention Records, ORG Music, etc, you're often better off with the CD or digital download.

I'm format agnostic and can buy any of the physical formats still currently supported so I have no horse in this race, just stating my opinion.

Unaware and not judging any format types or marketing strategies as well, but really impressed with the significance and frenesi behind this event that might be a good deal for the ones who have their motivations.

Hey how are you? I do not see this as a problem neither a non sense in a comment. This is my opinion. My expectations were frustrated with this surprise gift, and I am sure I am not the only one (check the other thread :) ). I am a fan but not a collector (although I truly appreciate ones who take it seriously) as I am used to put on the daily life use every few things I have from the guys. That's why the framing idea came from. Put into use. Gift CDs as U22 are still frequently played, books that I've read more than 3 times are now on a special place as decor pieces together with some cool posters, T-shirts, wow I really wear them all. Vinyls might be getting popular again but most homes as mine (still/anymore) do not have a turntable to play. An extra expense I was not expecting to have if they asked the fans whether they were interested into getting CDs or vinyls. I am with you when I hear my 17 yo nephews say CDs are old fashioned. However, far from being extincted. Glad to hear more on RDS.

Good thanks. On the bright side maybe cds will be cool again in 20 years from now... who knows.
I don't want to enter the digital/analog, sound quality debate. That's not the point. I'm just saying that vinyl is not an old fashioned medium as you may think, so the gift is kinda cool as it's still music and in a beautiful package. Don't worry there will be downloads available for all tracks, probably just mp3 but still something to listen on "new" devices.
I totally agree with the RSD comment, it has become something for resellers on eBay and for labels to release again and again the same stuff. My point was that there's a demand for  that, you can see every day that vinyl is more and more present in the stores nowadays. Now I know how it is with this gift and sure they can't please everyone. I was frustrated last year with the posters, other people liked it. And that doesn't mean that if they give us a cd it is something nice, remember duals ?
So let's hope next gift will be a cd again so you'll be able to enjoy it again.... and don't take this personally, that's just my opinion (good or not)

Absolutely not taking this personally. Glad to understand your (good) view and see there are quite new rediscovered motivations behind all this vinyl discussions that I have been immersed on the latest 24h.

After all, slightly excited to touch and play my first vinyl for the first time after my 10 years old.

Here's something no one could moan about that would cost the same to produce :

A 4 x 10" live set of the Joshua Tree Croke Park 2017 set with a download.

That’s pretty optimistic of you to think that no one would moan about it. But I like where your head is at.

I’m fine with the gift. I didn’t sign up for the membership because of the *free* gift anyway, and I’m willing to bet that no one here did either. I am glad that it is music, and not a book, but I have different reasons for that than probably all of you. I won’t hang them on the wall – I’ll play them. But maybe someday down the road, when there’s an extra room to do this in, I will hang them on the wall next to the unopened serigraph set that’s somewhere in my closet. Maybe...

Agreed that it's very optimistic to think that no one on here would complain about a 4-piece vinyl package of Croke Park with download link - "meh - another live recording", etc.  If there's one thing we're good at on this forum, it's moaning  :)

I'd also bet that you're not the only one who never bothered to open their poster gift last year.

I welcome this one although they should really release One Tree Hill too no? There were 5 singles after all.

I have a strong U2 vinyl collection so I can't wait to get these collectors items!

In God's Country and One Tree Hill had the same cover... and there's only 4 band members, you know ;-)

As a paid member of U2.com since early on in the Propaganda days, this has been a disappointing experience that I fear is becoming the norm rather than the exception. I simply did not receive the gift two years ago and after a frustrating email exchange U2.com support I just gave up.

First, I don't understand why this is described as a gift. It is not a gift. It was a product included as a component of a financial transaction.

Secondly, I cannot think of any other company that delayed shipment of a product by months due to a "production problem" that did not proactively reach out to alert customers who had paid for the product in advance.

As a customer of a huge organization, I know am one person that doesn't matter to the success of that organization. With U2, I'm not accustomed to feeling that way.

I'll have to demand U2 issue, to those of us who have been patient, a limited edition purple vinyl One Tree Hill single, for making us wait this long.

Yeah, you know you'd like to be the only kid on the block who got one of those.  Maybe I should run their creative department moving forward? You tell me.

I have received 2 similar if not identical responses. I am starting to lose hope but I must admit that the frequent emails regarding presales and vinyl re-issue purchase offers is pi**ing me off.

U2.com/fanfare can’t fulfill a 2 year old order but they still want me to trust them/reward them with more purchases? If a company can’t fulfill a product or service then don’t offer it- simple in my opinion, especially after a year delay and the SAME product being offered as as the 2018 membership ‘gift”

Perhaps an email from fan fire describing an honest plan to address/correct an obvious error (fraud?) should be sent. That, at least, would be better than the current situation.

Can’t wait for the 2018 “gift”- maybe it will arrive by 2021-hopefully sarcasm is understood.

Are other fan clubs this greedy/useless?

Me too....although the tracking # says they are still waiting for the merch.  How long to sing this song?

Today morning got an email from Live Nation - "Thank you for ordering from NULL store. One or more of your items has shipped. If you ordered more than one item, they may ship separately."


Can't wait for my The Joshua Tree Singles Vinyl Collection 1987 & 2017 :)

I'm in Manitoba (Canada) and still haven't received my gift for 2017.  I phoned U2.com last week and they said that they are still rolling out the vinyls.  They stated that over 100,000 were needed for subscribers.  They also mentioned that they are shipping them based on the order in which people re-subscribed.  They said to expect mine in the next 6-8 weeks.  We'll see.

I got mine today!  A little damaged but overall it looks pretty good.

My account says it was shipped on 15 Feb to Ireland. Did not get a notification email and no sign of delivery yet either. No tracking number provided on the account.

Finally arrived yesterday in fairly good shape. Just slight corner damage as the thing is shrink wrapped so tight. My account says shipped on Feb 28th with no tracking information on U2.com or UPS Mail Innovations. I did get the email notification  ;D I renew every February so I hope the 2018 gift goes allot better!

I received a cryptic message that mine has been dispatched from somewhere in the word with UPS. Let's see how long 'til it is here.

Hallelujah it came today!

Said to the postman 'Yes! At last!'
Postman said 'What is it?'
I said 'U2 vinyl records'
He said 'Oh, I can't stand that Bono!'
I laughed and signed.

Today morning got an email from Live Nation - "Thank you for ordering from NULL store. One or more of your items has shipped. If you ordered more than one item, they may ship separately."


Got the 4x10" set today, the item arrived mint in a 10" cardboard box.
The mark on the box says it was shipped from Belgium, so it took 4 weeks from Belgium to Moscow.


What a beautiful item, very cool.  8)
