Not always a cd also a vinyl, book, poster, etc. So, lets just call it a subscription bait

I just got an email saying that my subscription finishes in 30 days. "Re-subscribe today and pay $40 instead of $50 to receive a copy of the limited edition double CD set iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Live, 2015 & 2018."

However, they had already notified me in October 2019 that the 2CD set was shipped.... to my old address! I contacted them at that time by phone and asked them to ship to the correct address and forgot all about it - until I got the renewal email today.

Given how little help being a member has been in obtaining tickets - and the likelihood that they won't tour again until they release another album, so it could be years - maybe I won't renew (gasp!) but it would be nice to at least get the 2019 gift.

U2.com presented a solution when I reached out to them.

"So sorry for the confusion but you can renew you can renew your membership and then you can reach out to us to have your account added to a tracker when the new 2020 gift has been announced. This will allow us to ship the 2020 gift when it becomes available for shipping."

Hi 64ac30,
I checked my unread messages and clicked "subscriber gift".
Now tell me: what is the gift from you to me?
From me, I suggest that you listen to "From Me To You" by the Beatles.

lol...

for those wanting to spend the $50 elsewhere, here's a youtube link:  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login  sound quality is pretty good but needs more bottom end, in my opinion...  Adam should be louder...  the two discs seem to compliment each other better than the two respective studio albums that they document...  the songs flow together much better without the ridiculous version of 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' or tired versions of 'Bullet The Blue Sky', that were performed on the tours...

The Edge had commented on how the 'iNNOCENCE' songs "sounded more masculine live" while discussing why they went back into the studio (without Bono at first) to rework the 'eXPERIENCE' album before release and this document displays exactly what he was talking about...  except, I don't think that it rings true for the 'eXPERIENCE' tracks which, in my opinion, sound beefier on the album...  most notably 'Lights of Home', among others...:-)
