There's an interesting debate over at Interference about what it says on the vinyl slips when zoomed in. It is definitely 'U2', and it is followed by four figures which some say look like 'U22009'. An interesting theory being advanced is that it says 'U2SOON' (Which is what it looks like to me too) which could hint at a possible 'Kingdom'. Remember that there's supposedly an album coming out later this year ([/scepticism]) and Paul McGuiness discussed new songs being debuted both live and 'on record'. It's certainly conceivable that they would tease the most hardcore fans (Remember the price!) with an early song or two from it, particularly if the song has a connection to the 360 tour and if they're on vinyl so it's much harder to copy them and leak them.

So basically, $21.95 gets you the same video content as the Super Deluxe box set, minus $93 worth of junk?

No thanks. Where are the bonus songs from other shows? I want songs, not junk.

Yes, if you only want the show, you can pay $21.95.

i agree with Saint, the only really expensive box sets worth getting are ones with more audio or video. the $100 Muse boxset had the new album in suround sound, and the JT box had the amazing dvd. the NLOTH and 360 boxes dont have anything i'd want or use.

It's rumored that the 7'' coloured vinyl contains new tracks, but will not be confirmed until closer to the release.

To be fair the NLOTH box set, had the film "Linear" on DVD, which was only found on the boxset, (allthough a download was available on some other formats)it had the song "Winter" on it, as well as full video to the whole album. Ok, this was not in any way as good as say the Joshua Tree Paris concert, but still.

I don't think the 7" vinyl, tour book and tour program are junk, the guitar picks, cards and claw drawing are a bit OTT all right, but I do agree there could have been more video or audio content offered on the 360 boxset based on the price tag.

I'll believe it when I see it, but maybe.  ;)

Exactly. They go through all that trouble and expense to play Your Blue Room less than 10 times, and then we can't even get a video of the performance?

It's probably Kingdom, then, since it begins with repeating the word "Soon."

Couldn't agree more, i giggled when i saw how much they were charging for the extra crap. Who cares? it would just sit in my closet like my Blade Runner suitcase thingy that i got for the 5-disc dvd set.
