All I am saying is they are not involved in the mundane day-to-day details everyone is always complaining about on here.  Crappy customer service, slow shipping, etc.  Bono is not walking through the call center giving performance reviews.  The band give creative direction and move on to other things.  They aren't running these things day to day.  Could they set up their own?  Probably but it wouldn't be as cost effective and managing costs and investing wisely is how (as you pointed out) they have become wealthy on top of their music success.  And if there is one thing I have learned over the years about fans is that they are never all happy.  Someone is always all twisted up about something.  Personally, the fan club has its faults but I'm much more in favor of them outsourcing it (even if its crappier) so they can work on music, not dealing with fan club issues.
My point was why do they do it at all.  Its a money grab taking advantage of people they so “appreciate” for “giving them a great life”.

Y’all catch the full track list? It’s on the U2 website, but you need to log in as a member to see it.

If you wanted to only hear live versions of songs from the last two albums (and a couple of non-album tracks), you’ll love it. If you were hoping for something like a live version of Acrobat, well, you’re not gonna be thrilled.

I was thrilled until you reminded me that Acrobat wasn't on it.  Oh well, happy to have SOI and SOE live.

I have a feeling they'll use the other songs for a later gift. 2020 will be the older live tracks from I + E tours (Acrobat, Gloria, etc.). 2021 will be something with the Joshua Tree. Just my prediction.

This is me.

"I'm only interested in the SOI/E songs. I don't need another version of One or SBS."

"... oh wait, Acrobat? CRAP."

Wish they just stuck it on the E disc as a bonus track.

They have been known to release bonus tracks as downloads on U2.com. Fingers crossed. Or better yet, finally release the e+i concert movie.

I'm never mad at an officially released live U2 album, but I can't say I'm not disappointed by not seeing Acrobat, the new version of New Year's Day, 40 or Bad on here. Here's to hoping they give us a follow up like they did with 360 tour fan club release.

Lucifer's Hands is the only SoI song they performed that isn't getting on the disc? Bummer. I thought it was great in Montreal when they debuted it. Certainly better than the wobbly Crystal Ballroom.

Happy to have this but a shame there aren't more songs. The 360 Tour version of this was/is awesome and is something like 40 tracks. Hopefully there are some extra downloads, primarily Acrobat of course. But why make us wait what will be many more months to get a physical CD. Let us download it now. Not sure I have anything to play a CD on anymore. I seriously cant remember the last CD I bought or played. Use as a drinks coaster maybe.

To be fair, they did release the new version of NYD on the Europa EP, so they may think that's been taken care of.

Happy to hear the track list. Pretty clear that it would include only songs from SOI and SOE. I was afraid that it would not include songs that were only played a couple of times. But where is Lucifer's Hands?  Why excluded? Hopefully it  will be offered as a bonus download.

I know they released it for RSD, but it doesn’t help those of us who don’t have a turntable. I’m all for releasing rare vinyl for collectors who want physical stuff, but I’d buy the download in a heartbeat if they offered it.

Completely agree with all of this. I even have a turntable, but would gladly buy the download since I listen more to stuff on my phone or in my car than sitting down on my couch to pile into a record that really I just want to hear one song.

This is a complete stab in the dark, but is there anyone who has subscribed to U2.com who will get these CDs but doesn't want them?  I don't want to shell out $50, but I'd be happy to pay something for them. Please pm me if this is a possibility.
